New ways for content collaboration and sharing between users with Maple T.A. Cloud

Maplesoft™ has released the latest version of its popular testing and assessment tool. Maple T.A.™ 9 makes it easy for educators to use previously created questions and share content with the community.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 17, 2013 - Maple T.A. offers fully flexible adaptive testing at assignment level and is capable of handling larger classes.

With the new Maple T.A. Cloud, which is integrated seamlessly into Maple T.A. 9, educators can use publicly shared questions as easily as questions they have written themselves. Instructors can share individual questions, a group of questions or even a fully organised, multi-layered collection of questions to support a full course. The full organisational hierarchy is preserved so others can navigate and understand the content in the same way the author does. Thousands of questions from calculus, statistics, engineering and other subjects are already available in the Maple T.A. Cloud.

Expanding on the adaptive question type first introduced in Maple T.A. 8, the new version offers fully flexible adaptive testing at the assignment level. In adaptive assignments, the selection of the next question in an assignment depends on how the student has done on the previous questions. Educators can use adaptive assignments to sort students into different streams, provide extra reinforcement only when it is needed and allow more advanced students to truly show what they are capable of without discouraging less advanced students. Since Maple T.A. has the power of Maple™ behind it, adaptive testing in Maple T.A. is more flexible than any other system.

Maple T.A. 9 is now capable of handling more students than ever before using distributed load balancing across multiple servers, expanding its capacity to over one million users per installation. In addition, with a wide variety of enhancements related to assignments and question types, Maple T.A. 9 provides more customisation options and a streamlined user experience for both instructors and students, including a significantly enhanced question repository, hint deductions and an improved equation editor.

“Our customers told us they wanted even more flexibility and control over their testing and Maple T.A. 9 delivers just that,” says Paul DeMarco, Director of Development for Maple and Maple T.A. “In addition, the new Maple T.A. Cloud question repository makes it easy for instructors to access great content developed by other users and contribute their own work to the teaching community.”

Maple T.A. 9 is available now for customers whose classes are hosted by Maplesoft. For a self-hosted version, please contact Adept Scientific.

The Maplesoft product range is supplied and supported by Adept Scientific in the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia and the Nordic countries.
