Tap exercises are similar to a Select Code exercise, in that student's are asked to produce the code that generates a given output. In a Tap exercise, however, the framework for the code block is provided with 1 or more blanks, and students only need to fill in the blanks from a set of possibilities.
In order to specify the location of blanks, Tap exercises require a special
code block - it must include at least one
?? placeholder. Each
corresponds to the location of a fill-in-the-blank in the rendered exercise.
They also require a special additional field
specifies the correct sequence of blanks (in the correct order), while the
distractor_blanks field specifies the additional distractor items that will be
question block for a Tap exercise is
Complete the code to
generate the output.
If there is more than one blank, customized feedback for individual distractors
is not supported. You can (and should!) still use a fallback
# print() - key: # generate me! context: "You can use the `print` function to display things in the console." code: |- x = 17 ??(x + ??) output: "18" blanks: - "print" - "1" distractor_blanks: - "show" - "console.log" - "2" feedback_wrong: "We want to `print` the results of an expression that adds up to `18`."
