How to Add a Calculator to your Advanced Assessment
💡 Tip from the Otus Team: Rather than adding a calculator to an empty item, We recommend building the question first, then adding the calculator. 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 a calculator to an item that contains a Cloze Math question. A calculator can be added to any item at any time, not just math questions!
Step 1 - Add the Feature
