How do I customize the student scratchpad (or disable tools)?

Share this FAQ

You can customize all of the tools on the student scratchpad. To do so, edit the question you’d like to customize, and then press the Scratchpad Settings button as shown.

In the Scratchpad Settings, you can upload images, text, drawings, tables, and more for your students. You can also turn on or off any of the tools that are on the scratchpad.

By default, all of the tools are enabled for the student. To turn any of them off, simply uncheck the button next to them. For example, if you wanted to disable the calculator, you could simply press the blue button on Calc. Note that because the scratchpad is specific for each question, you’ll want to repeat this process for each question that you’d like to change the tools available.
