Maple T.A. is an easy-to-use web-based system for creating tests and assignments, and automatically assessing student responses and performance. Maple T.A. provides everything you would expect in an assessment system plus features designed specifically for technical courses involving mathematics, making it ideal for science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), or any course that requires mathematics.
During this webinar, you will have the opportunity to see how Maple T.A. works from both the instructor and student view point, and see how features such as conventional mathematical notation in questions and responses, intelligent evaluation of responses for mathematical equivalence, and extensive mathematical and visualization tools provide instructors the ideal testing and assessment environment for technical courses. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to see the new features in Maple T.A. 8, including the new highly secure Proctored Browser to discourage cheating and adaptive questions to deepen student understanding within the testing environment.
