Question Chaining in Maple T.A.
Tuesday, August 18, 2015 06:00 PM
Giving students more involved problems in an online assessment tool provides challenges, both for students and instructors. Only marking the final answer doesn’t necessarily provide an understanding of the student’s capabilities, and it penalizes students that make a small mistake in part of their solution. In Maple T.A., questions with multiple steps can be created as separate questions and linked or chained together. Question chaining allows instructors to mark subsequent questions based on the correct answer or the answer provided by students in previous parts. This webinar will show an example of question chaining in action and demonstrate how to create these questions and assignments.
