The Maple T.A. folder includes:
- Essay questions
- Fill-in-the-blanks questions (with the option of 1 - 5 blanks)
- Maple-graded questions (with the option to include a plot of the student's response)
- Multiple choice questions with 3 - 5 choices (with the option of random order)
- True or false questions
To create questions, use the Maple T.A. task templates. These special templates contain hidden code to create an assignment.
To access the list of Maple T.A. task templates:
From the Tools menu, select Tasks, and then Browse.
Expand the Maple T.A. folder.
Note: Maple T.A. task templates must be inserted in a specific location. For more information, see Inserting Questions.
Select the question type to insert and then click Insert Default Content or Insert Minimal Content. The Default Content contains extra instructions when creating questions. The extra information disappears in the Assignment view. The Assignment view is discussed in the next section.
Note: You cannot include embedded components (other than the Plot component), sketch regions, tables, or presentation blocks in a question.
To delete a question, place the cursor in the section title of the question and press Ctrl+Delete (Command+Delete, for Macintosh).
To take an assignment, from the View menu, select Assignment. All the instructions that are available when creating the question are hidden in the Assignment view.
With the Assignment view, you can enter answers to the questions, retrieve hints, and obtain feedback to determine if the answers are correct. A final grade of the overall assignment is not provided and, as with practice assignments in Maple T.A., answers are not stored upon completion of the assignment.
By saving the worksheet in Assignment view, you can distribute the worksheet as an assignment to students.
After you have created an assignment, you can export the worksheet as a course module. For full details on this process, see Export as Möbius Assessment
After you have uploaded the course module into Möbius Assessment, you can change the assignment type and set other assignment options. Maple libraries that you have linked in the assignment are automatically linked in Möbius Assessment.
Important: If you edit an exported course module in Möbius Assessment, you cannot view the updated questions in Maple using this mechanism. You can import a course module and access its questions using the Grading:-Quiz package. For more information, see MapleTA[Import] and Möbius Assessment Integration.
