It looks like Banner supports LTI https://www.imsglobal.org/compliance/banner-integration-elearning-v813

Maple T.A. 2016 also supports LTI, so you should be able to integrate the two with our LTI connections. You can find documeation on the Maple T.A. LTI feature here: https://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/MapleTA2016/MapleTASystemAdministrator/ch03s07.aspx

Hello,

For your first two variables, it looks like you want them to stay as strings and not have Maple evaluate them. In this case, you don't need to wrap them in "maple()"

$pattern1="sin(1/2*Pi)";
$text1="sin(1/2*Pi)";

For the StringTools call, the square bracket notation for packages (StringsTools[Search]) does not work in Maple T.A. algorithms. Instead use StringTools:-Search

 

Here is the full algorithm that does work.

$pattern1="sin(1/2*Pi)";
$text1="sin(1/2*Pi)";
$test1=maple('StringTools:-Search("$pattern1","$text1")');
$test2=maple('StringTools:-Search("$pattern1","$text1")');

You should use the :- Syntax for your grading code as well.

We are no longer maintaining the online LaTeX to Maple T.A. converter. It is no longer referenced in the latest Maple T.A. documentation (Maple T.A. 10). 

Since Maple T.A. 9.5 we've had built-in suport for rendering LaTeX math expressions so authoring questions directly in Maple T.A. is easier and our recommended route.

This is possible with the use of Maple T.A.'s "if" function. 

here is the algorithm:

$n3=range(0,9,1);
$div=$n3/2;
$rounded=int($div);
$answers=if($rounded*2-$n3, "2,6", "0,4,8");

I created a Maple-graded question with that algorithm and the "correct answer" set to "$answers"

Then I set the "grading code" to 

member($RESPONSE, {$ANSWER});

This checks to see if the student's response is contained in the list of possible answers.

 

Here is the full question you can import into your instance:

Hello,

The latest Java changed the security needed in order for Maple T.A. to talk to the equation editor. A hotfix is available for both Maple T.A. 8 and Maple T.A. 9.5 that fixes this issue. Please contact support@maplesoft.com to get help installing this hotfix on your server.

Maple T.A. 9+ renders MathML using MathJax, a third party library that adds MathML support to all browsers. There are no problems rendering MathML using the latest version of Chrome. Your students can use whichever browser they prefer.

Question Groups and Subjects should always be displayed in alphebetical order. I just tested and verified that they are listing in alphebetical order. Can you give us an example of the order you are seeing?

Subjects are meant to be more generic categorization of questions, mostly intended for the Maple T.A. Cloud, so that multiple instructors can add their questions to the same subject. 

Also, any subjects you create are shared across your whole instance (just the subjects, not the questions) so other instructors can make use of your categorization. And if they choose to share their questions with either the Maple T.A. Cloud or your entire instance, you will see them in that subject.

I did some Googling, and I found this page:

I suggest going to the room sepcified on that page, or contacting your school's IT department for help.

 

 

Hello,

There is no direct import of Moodle questions into Maple T.A.. You will need to re-author the questions directly inside of Maple T.A..

You can move content from Maple T.A. 2.51 to Maple T.A. 8 by exporting a course module from the older version and then importing it to the newer version.

Since there are so many versions in between, there isn't a direct way to convert all of the data, to move all data, you will need to upgrade to Maple T.A. 4 then 5 and finally Maple T.A. 8.

I'm assuming that you are creating questions asking the student to choose the best HTML/XML markup?

You will need to encode the HTML if you don't want Maple T.A. to render it as HTML. There are many tools for encoding HTML available, here is one: http://www.opinionatedgeek.com/DotNet/Tools/HTMLEncode/encode.aspx
