  • VIDEO: How to Integrate Maple TA with Canvas

    Last updated: March 30, 2016

    Maple TA users are advised to not migrate to Canvas at this time, because Maple TA can't yet push scores to Canvas from force-graded or manually-graded assignment attempts. Maplesoft is working to add this capability to the new version of Maple TA that has a target release date of July 2016.

    Last updated: August 21, 2014

    When Practice assignments are composed of static questions, students are only practicing their memorization skills. Use Maple T.A.'s scripting language to create powerful dynamic questions that can be used again and again in Practice assignments to teach valuable skills, and in exams to reduce or eliminate cheating.
