The goal of this research study is to investigate and develop a new variety of problem types for the online intelligent tutor MathSpring.org as opposed to the more traditional multiple choice or short answer items currently available. Throughout this project, I researched seven designs for new problems including Drop Down Menu, Coordinate Plane, Check All that Apply, Make a Model, Number Line, Drag and Drop, and Construct an Equation. Of these seven problem types, I developed the first five with the application of HTML, CSS, and ReactJS. By creating one or two problems of each type, future developers are able to apply my work to the pre-existing math content authoring tool.
