Maple T.A. has many question types for both technical
and non-technical subjects, including:
For information on other question types, including true/false,
matching, chemical equation questions, and more, refer to
the Maple T.A. Instructor Help.
Maple T.A. allows you to ask free-response questions, where students provide their mathematical solution the same way they would on paper.
Maple T.A. supports both adaptive questions and adaptive assignments.
Adaptive questions provide students another chance when they give an incorrect response. Knowing the student is having trouble, the question can be adapted to:
With adaptive questions, instructors can control the behavior of the question, including:
With the Sketch question type, instructors can ask students to sketch graphs, and Maple T.A. grades those graphs automatically.
Instructors in engineering and science can ask questions that require students to draw free body diagrams, and Maple T.A. automatically grades the results.
Instructors can include interactive Maple documents (“Math Apps”) in Maple T.A. questions, and Maple T.A. will grade the interactions with student has with the Math App.
