### Answer checking order is weird ### Answer checking order is weird

I am making a scaffolding problem. The first step of the problem includes some fill-in-the-blank questions, and the second step asks students to fill in a table. When I tested the problem, the answer checker checks the answers from the first step at the end, and it checks the answers of the table first. As a result, it does not check properly. If the fill-in-the-blank questions come after the table, there is no issue. Here is my code:

DOCUMENT();
"PGstandard.pl",
"MathObjects.pl",
"PGML.pl",
"scaffold.pl",
"PGcourse.pl"
);

TEXT(beginproblem());

###########################
# Setup
Context()->strings->add(T => {}, F => {});

$table1 =$BCENTER.begintable(3) .
row( "$$p$$", "$$q$$", " $$p \vee q$$ ") .
row( ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5),) .
row( ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5),) .
row( ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5),) .
row( ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5), ans_rule(5),) .
endtable().$ECENTER; @answer1 = ("T", "T", "T", "T", "F", "T", "F", "T", "T", "F", "F", "F", ); ########################### # Main text Scaffold::Begin(); Section::Begin("Step 1"); BEGIN_PGML [x = ] [__________]{1} [y = ] [__________]{0} END_PGML Section::End(); Section::Begin("Step 2"); BEGIN_PGML [@$table1 @]***

END_PGML

foreach my $i (0..$#answer1) {
ANS( String($answer1[$i])->cmp() );
}

Section::End();
Scaffold::End();

ENDDOCUMENT();

Is there a way to fix this? Thank you. ### Re: Answer checking order is weird

Since you are calling ans_rule for the table before the first part of the scaffold, those answer rules are recorded first, and are listed first.

Move the definition of \$table after the first Section::End() and before the next Section::Begin(), and then it will work.
