[LON-CAPA-users] help overriding tolerance
Mon, 14 Feb 2011 21:05:12 -0500
I have a problem assign to my class. It uses a value for the resistivity of copper that differs from the value given in class by 2%. Perhaps it is using the value at 25 deg C rather than 20. The numerical tolerance for the problem appears to be set at 1%, so my students will be marked wrong unless they know the value the problem is using. So I go to the page to modify parameter settings and set the tolerance to 5% for this problem in my course. But then I check the range of allowed answers for some students and it still looks like 1%. Why does my setting of the tolerance not override the default setting of the problem? What do I need to do to fix it.
