Abstract This paper shows the results of an experiment applied to 170

students from two Chilean universities who solve a task about reading a graph

of an affine function in an online assessment environment where the parameters

(coefficients of the graphed affine function) are randomly defined from an ad-hoc

algorithm, with automatic correction and automatic feedback. We distinguish two

versions: one of them with integer coefficients and the other one with decimal

coefficients in the affine function. We observed that the nature of the coefficients

impacts the mathematical work used by the students, where we again focus on

two of them: by direct estimation from the graph or by calculating the equation of

the line. On the other hand, feedback oriented towards the “estimation” strategy

influences the mathematical work used by the students, even though a non-negligible

group persists in the “calculating” strategy, which is partly explained by the

perception of each of the strategies.
