# Can't get checkmark on dashboard

My head is about to explode. This is a totally bare-bones slide, with just a sketch and a math input item. I have tried all variations, but cannot get a checkmark on the dashboard. I can get the x to show up, but not the checkmark.

In the math input item called answer I have this:

Typing 10 gets a dot and typing anything else gets an x.

I actually want it to have the following, but I figured I would get a simple numeric value to work first before trying to get it to work with the latex.

initialLatex: `x=`
correct: answer.latex=`x=10`

You need to add `readOnly: true` to the sketch component. Otherwise, the dot is telling you that some bits are correct (the math input) and some bits require you to check manually (the sketch).

Once youâ€™ve done that then youâ€™ll need `correct: answer.latex=`x=10` ` (with the backticks) for the full version to be correct.

Ahâ€¦Thank you for the quick reply!!

We want to be sure that they have shown work in the sketch. Is there a way to have it indicate that the sketch has been utilized AND the answer is correct?

Thank you!

Okayâ€¦ just figured that out!

Now my questions is for the stroke length. The example in the CL is this:
correct: this.sketch.totalStrokeLength > 6.6 and this.sketch.totalStrokeLength < 6.8

We want kids to solve a 2-step equation, showing all steps like this:

Each individual line in the sketch is short, but we need to know that they have a lot of them. What would you suggest the parameters be? Or is that not easily possible and I should just go with >2 and then look in the dashboard at each sketch?

Rather than using `totalStrokeLength`, you could probably benefit from `strokeCount`. Work out the minimum number of strokes you would need for the level of detailed working out you would expect to see, and then use the condition `this.sketch.strokeCount > 12` or whatever.

The list of properties available with sketch are listed here.

Fantastic. This is perfect!!

I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. Screen 28 works but 29 and 30 only get the dot. Characteristics of Quadratics â€˘ Activity Builder by Desmos

The correct sink needs to be set for the inputs. It needs to be `correct: ` instead of `correct=`.

Thank you! I was staring at it and could not see the difference. You are the best!
