Unit 3 - Lesson 7 #11


I like the new additions that tie in the Create Task.
One question about why the person received 0 points for line 1:
Is it because they used a paramertized version of the function?
Please explain


Specifically, it’s because it’s not a function the student wrote. It was provided by the system. (I think that’s what you meant, but the fact that the function has a parameter doesn’t matter, it’s the authorship).

Also, this is explained with other details in the “Teacher Only” area below the question. Can you see that? Do you have a verified teacher account?

Using comments to organize code into functional blocks is different from abstracting a function. Using functions from the API with or without parameters also cannot count as a student created abstraction.

Hope that helps,
