Hi Hon-Kie,

If the student responds with an incorrect number of sig figs, 
(you can tell because 
is set to 'SIG_FAIL'


Will be set to
When <user> is the number of sigfigs counted in the .submission
and <min> and <max> are the respective minimum and maximum allowed sig

> Also, for unordered answers, how does one call the function since
> there are more than one submission but only one id?

Currently only one award message is saved in the case of a multianswer
numerical problem (either ordered or unordered), and which element in
the student's answer that caused the particular award isn't recorded.
