How to Add a Ruler to your Advanced Assessment
💡 Tip from the Otus Team: Rather than adding a ruler to an empty item, we recommend building the question first, then adding the ruler. If you haven't built the question yet, that's ok too, you can just add it later.
➡️ The example below shows how to add the Ruler Ito an item that contains a Cloze Math Question. The Ruler can be added to any item at any time.
Step 1: Add the Feature
