Good Morning Stuart:
How might we update that file?  And is that a library server file change,
or library and access file change?

If you would like LaTeX enclosed within <m></m> tags within a student
submission to an essayresponse item to be rendered (for the web) in your
grading screen you will need to ask a system administrator in the vcu
domain to replace the version of grades.pm included with LON-CAPA 2.11.2
(rev. 1.596., and currently installed on your servers, with an
updated version which includes a one line change (rev.
1.596.  With that change the renderer used will be MathJax,
mimetex, or tth depending on the math display preferences which apply to
you, in the current course context.

Good morning all,

I would like to find out how (if possible) to make equations appear
appropriately in the grading window for a text entry assignment. Using the
RichText editor, an equation appears as below in the submission window:
That equation appears in the grading window (after I select handgrading)
as the LaTex code below:

Thanks for any suggestions.
