WIRIS cas for the student
If we want to allow the student to make calculations with WIRIS calculator, to facilitate things or because we want, precisely, to evaluate his/her use of the tool, we can provide access to a WIRIS cas session in the same questionnaire.

To enable this functionality, you just have to check the corresponding box in the WIRIS quizzes section of the Moodle question, located at the end of the question (in the last image of this section you can see it in context):
Besides, we can decide if the student session will have any calculation by default, maybe an indication of what to do or a step previous to what we are requesting. To insert the initial content of the WIRIS cas session, you just have to click the button, insert the content desired in the session and click Accept to save the content.
Please note that you can only have a WIRIS cas session if the student is allowed to use also WIRIS editor to insert the answer. If we WIRIS editor box is not enabled in WIRIS quizzes section, the box that allows us to insert a WIRIS cas session for the student will be disabled.
We see the student has a WIRIS cas session to perform the desired calculations and, besides, s/he has the Copy answer button, that will copy the last calculation from the session and paste it in the formula editor. Thus, once the student has made some calculations in WIRIS cas session, copying the answer to the formula editor is not required. S/he just has to click the Copy answer button and it will automatically appear in the formula editor, and can be modified previously if the students finds it appropriate.
Two clarifications are necessary regarding the Copy answer button:
As usual, for completeness purposes, we present the calculations performed in the development of the question:
