### Why does the string 0 become -0?...

November 18 2013
2 1

Hello!

If I wirite in an algorithm in MapleTA 9.5 the number 0, and later use it (for export to latex), it becomes negative, but not if I pass through Maple:

$null=0;$zero=maple("0");
$nullstring="$null";
$zerostring="$zero";

results in:

 null 0 zero 0 nullstring -0 zerostring 0

Why, and what can be done without passing through Maple?

Best,

Jan

### English Language Proficiency Tests...

We’ve recently added a new set of questions to the Maple T.A. Cloud for English language proficiency tests. These questions demonstrate how Maple T.A. can be used to generate text-based questions that take advantage of the randomization feature. These questions were created by Metha Kamminga, an Independent Learning Professional in the Netherlands. Metha is a strong proponent of Maple T.A. in Europe, and transformed the testing and assessment system in Delft University before her retirement.

TU Delft University aims to transform learning through the use of technology. Its ambition is to eventually offer fully digitalized degree programs and it believes that digital testing and assessment can play an important role within this process. They are using Maplesoft’s online testing and assessment suite, Maple T.A., to move their courses to a digital assessment environment. To read the full user story, click here.

Visit the Maple T.A. Cloud to access the questions mentioned above and to browse the full collection of questions.

### Introducing Maple T.A. 9.5...

July 25 2013 Maple T.A.

I am happy to formally announce Maple T.A. 9.5! An expansion on Maple T.A. 9, this release is packed full of innovative features and new tools to assist academic institutions with a variety of different teaching and assessment tasks.

Ever have an issue on your campus where students are required to learn a new piece of technology, but you don’t know how to get them prepared for it? With Maple T.A. 9.5, we have included pre-built content to assist students in learning how to use the Maple T.A. environment, and students can take the new Readiness Test to educate themselves on how to use the system. Tasks such as enabling Java, navigating assignments, grading tests, searching for help, and much more are taught in an interactive setting, and give students the right information they need to become comfortable with Maple T.A.

We haven’t forgotten about instructors and teachers either. We have completely revamped our Instructor Examples to provide educators with a sample question of every single question type in Maple T.A. – that’s over 25 different examples! Instructors are given descriptions, feature lists, and examples for each question type. Additionally, we also created a new Sample Assignment that shows instructors what a typical assignment looks like. They can explore this assignment from both instructor and student viewpoints to test out different options and see what the experience will be like.

Essay questions have been foundational in Maple T.A. for several years now, and Maple T.A. 9.5.makes it even easier to provide feedback for students submitting essays. With the Essay Annotation feature, instructors have the ability to mark-up an essay with comments using a simple drag and drop tool. Using this new tool, your students will be able to see your comments and take note of any issues they had in their writing.

Power outages, automatic updates, computer crashes... we’ve all experienced these unpredictable events, and they can be catastrophic for students trying to meet due dates or if assignments are timed. To help with this Maple T.A. has expanded its Proctor Tools feature.  Instructors can now grant individual students with additional time or date extensions if there are ever any issues.

We’re also giving you a sneak peak at some up-and-coming technology: Gradeable Math Apps. As part of The Möbius Project, you can now embed an interactive Maple worksheet in a Maple T.A. question. Students can move sliders, push buttons, click on plot windows and much more directly inside of a Maple T.A. question. Students are then automatically graded on their interaction with the Math App – just like other question types in Maple T.A.

All these features are all for Maplesoft-hosted and self-hosted users, which also includes all the great stuff from Maple T.A. 9:

• New Question Repository
• Maple T.A. Cloud
• Hint Deductions
• Reworking Assignments
• MathJax Support
• Distributed Load Balancing
• Permanent User Deletion
• Customizable User Interface
• Multiple Instructors for a Class
• And much more!

At Maplesoft, we are extremely excited about Maple T.A. 9.5, and can’t wait for schools all over the world to begin using it!  And as always, we are very interested in hearing from you about your experiences with Maple T.A., as well as any suggestions you have for future releases.

Never before has the educational landscape been changing as fast as it is today, driven by a new generation of students who are growing up with instant access to on-demand information. This generation relies on ubiquitous network access and takes for granted technology that permeates every aspect of their lives. Phones and tablets are everyday companions and are used to connect with their peers, take classroom notes and research school projects. Beyond being mere consumers...

Each announcement of a new version of Maple TA, including the latest Maple TA 9, see

### randperm in MapleTA produces always the same permu...

I use combinat[randperm] in MapleTA to get random permutations. But everytime I call the corresponding question bank, I get the same sequence of permutations. Even a randomize();with(combinat);randperm... doesn't change this behaviour but every single student should get different homeworks. Any idea?

### How to make MapleTA not simplify?...

When presenting  t3 / t2  by programming

\$formula = maple("printf(MathML:-ExportPresentation(t^3/t^2))");

MapleTA will automatically simplify this to the result:  t

How can I force MapleTA to not simplify this expression?

Thanks!

### Warning : Blackboard connector for MapleTA...

We have been using MapleTA for many years (since version 1.5) and have version 8 hosted on a Maplesoft server. Recently, we looked into buying the Blackboard connector. It is disappointing that we have not been able to go through with this because of an inadequacy in the connector. As I understand it from our technicians, in Blackboard a course is identified by four attributes ID, year, calendar and title. These account for different presentations of the same course in different...
