Advanced Number Grid question items look like this on a form

Number Grid items have students answer a question by filling in the numbers and symbols on a grid. All users can create basic grids where the columns are identical. School and district users can also use the advanced option to customize the columns.

Custom Columns: Custom column configurations enable you to easily create custom griddable layouts to match what a student might see on state or other standardized tests. For example, if the standardized test includes 3 columns of numbers, followed by a decimal and 2 more columns of numbers, you can configure your GradeCam form to match.

Note:This option is not available on free single-teacher accounts. See the related article on how to upgrade to a paid single-teacher account.


Texas Users: If your standards are set to Texas state standards there are additional options that align to the STAAR Test covered in another article.
