Check mark (character)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The tick or Hakerl ( Austrian German ) is a symbol that is used to mark things as “correct”, “good” or “done” or to select them from a list.

A sign that competes with the tick is the cross ×, which can take on the meaning of the tick , e.g. B. in elections. In different cultures such as B. in Japan, errors or incorrect answers in exams are marked with ticks.
