UNSW Teaching and Learning Seminar: Kress -- Maple TA in first year mathematics

Maple TA is a system for creating and delivering online tests.  It has much more sophis-
ticated abilities for the random generation and grading of questions than other
available online systems such as Blackboard’s built in assessment tools.  It has been
used for large classes in the School of Maths and Stats for several years and is
currently in the process of being more closely integrated with the University’s central
systems and is a part of UNSW’s TELT (Technology Enabled Learning and Teaching)
platform.  I will give an overview how it has been used in some of the School’s large
first and second year courses and report on our experiences.
