Follow up to my previous question.

Using the coding below, I can get a slider to appear in my problem.
However, the script is not type="loncapa". I would like to be able to get
the slider bar response and save it in a variable that I can use elsewhere
in the problem. Also, I would like to be able to store the students'
confidence levels for research reasons.


<part id="p3">

<p>How confident are you that your answer is correct? Move the slider bar
to the right to indicate high confidence (100) and to the left to indicate
low confidence (1).</p>
<input type="range" min="1" max="100" value="50" id="myRange"></input>
<p>Your confidence is <span id="x"></span></p>

var slider = document.getElementById("myRange");
var output = document.getElementById("x");
output.innerHTML = slider.value;

slider.oninput = function() {
  output.innerHTML = this.value;
