2014 Maple T.A. User Summit – A Nationwide Bridge Course in Mathematics for the Preparation of STEM Study Courses. Hamburg’s View and the Role of E-assessment
Prof. Dr. Thomas Schramm, Professor, HafenCity Universität Hamburg
The largest obstacle for STEM students in their first year is obviously their lack of basic mathematical skills. We introduced the COSH standard of mathematical competencies developed in Baden-Württemberg used by more than 10 German universities for a common online preparatory course. Since the inbuilt diagnostics is too monolithic for use in schools we propose to use Maple T.A. for flexible formative E-assessments.
