When using Exampro you may come across some symbols, such as a red cross or yellow circle, or it could be a red square or blue circle, there are other combinations which you may see in the item descriptor.

These symbols denote a particular search field and can help you when filtering for particular questions.

In the above example for GCSE Maths, the yellow circle means it is a calculator question, and the red cross non-calculator. If you were using KS2 Reasoning on the other hand, those same symbols would denote **Explain **or **Show your method**, and could be found under the '**Type**' tab in the search fields.

To find out what these symbols mean for your subject, you will need to click on the '**Search**' button and then on the various tabs.

Not all of the symbols relate to the same search criteria across subjects. You can select these as a search filter or use them as a guide when selecting your questions for a more diversified test.
