Do your forms recognize fractions which can subsequently be used to make calculations?

    I teach hands on math. I'm looking for students to be able to measure their layout project and enter those dimensions in a form. They would then use those measurements to perform math calculations, which would also be entered into the form.

    Hi Joe, our forms don't have an innate ability to recognize fractions. Calculations done on our form are all using decimal places. Can you at least give us a rough idea on how you want the calculations to work though? Do you have a form that you're currently working on that you can share with us?

    Basically, the more info you will provide, the better options we can suggest as alternatives (if applicable).

    Jim,
    Thanks for the response. I'm looking for a form into which students can
    input measurements- usually mixed numbers. These numbers are then used as
    the basis of math tests. I'm looking to see if we can automate the grading
    process.
    Best
    Joe

    Unfortunately, we do not have the feature you are looking for. We can perform calculations, however, it does not have the capability to perform math test nor fractions recognition.
