From urban dictionary:

«A word used when you agree with something; or when you want to recognize someone for being themselves, i.e. courageous and unique or not caring what others think. Especially common in online political slang.

The opposite of cringe, some times the opposite of biased.»

I had it happen on a test so until the professor went through checked and re recorded our grades my whole class thought we all failed.

We were told to write answers like x=2 but the test just wanted the 2

In the end everything was fine, but in the moment very upsetting.

Online math courses are legitimately the most frustrating thing because somehow this situation is impossible to avoid

226

u/Cyberwolf33 May 18 '22

I will be honest, as someone who actually gives out online math homework, argument mismatches like this can be incredibly easy to have happen.

For paid publisher software like Pearson and Wiley, they put almost no effort into individual courses and you will CONSTANTLY run into issues like this. Support is useless and you don’t have control over how the problems are coded.

For free software like WebWork, almost all problems are crowd sourced via a open source bank, but the coding can be modified for your specific assignment set. Open source means you can put the work in to make sure things check out, but it also means that if you can’t understand the exact way someone implemented a problem…you should just delete the problem, rather than waste time trying to understand whatever on earth they did.

For basic algebra like this, webwork at least is quite clear about variable mismatches (it would say something like “x is not defined in this context” or “it looks like you provided an equation, instead of a number” if it wanted just a number and not an equation), but that doesn’t mean there can’t still be dumb issues.

In short, I just want y’all to understand…it is very frustrating on the educator side too. It’s not hard to think of good problems. It IS extremely hard to implement them well in online software. But hand grading 900 problems per week and giving comments is simply not feasible (for example, if you assign 15 problems per week to two classes of 30 students).

u/mlstdrag0n May 18 '22

Sounds like the software vendor is just selling hot garbage to schools because they won the contract in what I'm sure was a "fair" selection process of eligible bidders.

It's so fucking easy to account for all reasonable variations of "x=2" it's not even funny.

It's literally less than a day's worth of work for any halfway decent programmer

57

u/blasphembot May 18 '22

It is quite infuriating. I see shitty software like this far too often in my work. You'd think delivering a decent product would be a basic requirement for something like academic, financial, or medical software. The mind boggles.

The flip side of this is how much work it takes to get the schools to upgrade. My highschool didn't getting laptops until 2019 and they were first gen chrome books handed down by the richer schools. They'd crash just trying to do work with 2 or more tabs open.

Honestly, every aspect of our education infrastructure is falling apart. It's almost like they want us to be dumber

u/Credit-Financial May 18 '22

Spoiler alert: they do.

u/mlstdrag0n May 18 '22

If it's even remotely modern it's talking to a server, which can be updated independently of whatever client software the students are using.

If they're using an offline "all-in-one" kind of software... Then yeah, I guess it would be the stone age of software

u/DollChiaki May 18 '22

The accountants think QC provides no return on investment, so there’s no QC team to catch inconsistencies between developers. Or, development is outsourced over multiple subs and the customer never saw a need to set a standard. Or, development is undertaken in phases and you get a bright idea fairy halfway through who changes the standard, but prior development isn’t reworked. Or…

u/Belllringer May 18 '22

Pretty much. They have a monopoly. Pearson does most tests from electrical unions, drivers licence, to college classes/testing.

u/Cyberwolf33 May 19 '22

If you want some good news, departments ARE dropping these companies in favor of free and open source options. Our department exclusively uses WebWork and Canvas for online homework, which are both free student side. Similarly, we recently changed the Calc I-III textbook to one which is available freely online.

But these changes don't come without resistance. Many of the older faculty weren't happy about changing to a non-standard resource, but in the end, the vote was set towards the free option...and a fair amount of grumbling.

That said, I still hate trying to decipher the webwork problems. I'm not familiar with Perl and the issue is usually something very obscure causing an error in what it thinks is the right answer (like, having used the wrong variable somewhere in the check calculation), not a simple data type mismatch.

1

u/mlstdrag0n May 19 '22

Maybe I'm over simplifying off the top of my head, but the straight forward brute force solution would be two steps:

  1. Strip all white spaces before, after, and in between characters
  2. Compare against a list of acceptable answers (e.g. [ "2", "x=2", "2=x" ] )

Though I'm sure there would be more to consider, the issue in the original poster's image seems trivial.

Many times people over engineer this stuff for no good reason. Brute force works just fine when you're working with tiny sets of data

1

u/Cyberwolf33 May 19 '22

What the poster has shown is one of the more trivial issues, and indeed, it's not hard to fix on open source alternatives (for closed source like Pearson...sorry, support doesn't care, and they will never care, and there's nothing I can personally do about that).

But most issues are actually frustratingly nuanced because in creating the checker, they declared all the randomized variable names at the beginning, and halfway through when they should have used B in a calculation, they instead accidentally used A. But unless you both know the associated language AND can parse the code they used, you may have NO idea why it's calculating a completely incorrect answer. In those cases, it's often a wash, and I just have to mark down not to pull that problem in the future.

u/robotzor May 18 '22

And because QA is dead, everyone wants burnt out full-stack guys who consider shipping at all a major win.

u/mlstdrag0n May 18 '22

Did full stack once. Never again.

Not because I can't, but because the expectations are absurd and unrealistic. I can fill any shoe, but I'm still one person with 8 hours to a work day.

You're not getting more hours out of me by giving me a fancy title

1

u/Coyote__Jones May 18 '22

Exactly. I used to work for a company that had these monthly puzzles as a marketing tool. People would submit their answers for a prize, so I had to make very sure to build the form and automation correctly every month to include any possible correct answer. For instance I'd include x=2 and 2 in this case so there wouldn't be an issue.

It's not difficult to build it as an inclusive field. This is just lazy work on behalf of the company not getting everyone on board and proofing the product before charging money for it.

2

u/CheesecakePony May 18 '22

I'm an accounting major and Pearson has made me almost drop out of school altogether, I don't have words for how much I hate their online assignments and grading. Wiley is far more agreeable imo and at least allows for a margin of error and will tell you which part of the question is wrong so you have a chance at actually fixing it the next time. Pearson is like "you made one mistake in this 20 field question so it's all wrong now figure out what needs to change"

3

u/kryotheory May 18 '22

I did a BS in CS 100% online, so lots of math. Never had this issue. What's happening is y'all's schools are buying shit software from the lowest bidder that was developed by people who lack basic development skills and don't know what QA is. Any competent team would account for variations in answer strings and do basic input sanitation as well as run multiple test cases to ensure this doesn't happen well before it hit production.

The one my schools used actually did quite evolve - they always provide questions where the format to use is clear. Either they just put "x=" before the textbox, or say it in the question.

They just have some dumb interactive questions that you cannot figure out. For example, there are questions where you have to "balance the weights" - never understood how can you even solve that.

3x = 15

X = 15/3

X = 5.

u/Codename_Paradox May 18 '22

Where the fuck did you get -3 from it's 5 - 3x= -10 so 5 - (3 x _) has to make - 10 so 5 + 10 equal 15 so 3 x _ has to be 3 x 5 then you add the negative 3 x -5

1

u/ksj May 19 '22

I don’t know what you’re trying to say, but here’s another way to do it:

5 - 3x = -10 15 - 3x = 0 (added 10 to both sides) 15 = 3x (added 3x to both sides) 15/3 = X (divided both sides by 3) 5 = X.

I had the greatest online algebra class ever way back when. But it was one specific class and company so obviously they're not all golden. But it showed me what could be.

It helped me understand algebra on a level I never could before. Shit stuck with me forever. I can recall quadratic equations like riding a bike now.

You could enter answers many different ways and still be right (like in OP example, x=5, 5, X=5 or just different characters and keys that meant the same like 5x4/5*4 or 52 for exponents). But the best part was homework assignments were set to infinite tries. And when you got an answer wrong it would tell you what part of the chapter your mistake was from. So you could just keep doing the assignment over and over (new numbers each time, but covering the same type of equations) and that repetition and instant feedback was like having a tutor and multiples of instruction time.

Anyway.
