Add Problems to LMS Course

Note

You must first link your MathWorks® Account to the LMS before you can add MATLAB® Grader™ coding problems. See Link MathWorks Account to MATLAB Grader Assessment Content.

Note

Only a single MATLAB Grader assessment item can be linked to a single assignment in the LMS gradebook. Review the documentation for the gradebook feature of your LMS vendor for ways to combine multiple assessment item scores into a single grade.

Check for Existing MATLAB Grader Integration

To determine if you can add MATLAB Grader coding problems to your LMS course, follow the instructions in this section that are applicable to your LMS and try adding a problem.

If you cannot find the MATLAB Grader integration, or it is clear that MATLAB Grader has not been integrated yet, contact your LMS administrator.

Add MATLAB Grader Coding Problems to Course in Canvas (Instructure)

If an LMS administrator has already performed MATLAB Grader integration with Canvas®, you can add MATLAB Grader coding problems to your course.

Follow the Canvas instructions in How do I add an assignment using an external app?, which explain how to add an assignment using an external tool. Some links require a third-party vendor login.

  • Look for "MATLAB Grader" in the list of available external tools.

  • After you save the changes, Canvas launches the MATLAB Grader interface for copying and creating content. You can create a new problem or select a problem from your available collections or courses.

If you are unable to find the MATLAB Grader integration or need help for any part of this process, contact the LMS administrator or the IT department directory at your institution.

Add MATLAB Grader Coding Problems to Course in Moodle

If an LMS administrator has already performed MATLAB Grader integration with Moodle™, you can add coding problems to your course.

Perform the following steps to add a problem:

  1. In Moodle, go to the course where you want to add a MATLAB Grader coding problem.

  2. Turn editing on.

  3. Select Add an Activity or Resource.

    Browse ACTIVITIES for "MATLAB Grader."

    • If you find the MATLAB Grader integration in the activity list, select it and click Add.

    • If you do not see the MATLAB Grader integration in the list:

      1. Select External Tool and click Add.

      2. Under Preconfigured tool, find and select the MATLAB Grader integration.

  4. Fill out activity name and any other desired settings.

  5. Click Save and display.

    Moodle launches the MATLAB Grader interface for copying and creating content. You can create a new problem or select a problem from your available collections or courses.

If you are unable to find the MATLAB Grader integration or need help for any part of this process, contact the LMS administrator or the IT department directory at your institution.

Add MATLAB Grader Coding Problems to Course in Open edX

If MATLAB Grader has already been integrated into the course, you can add MATLAB Grader coding problem.

Note

Only problems added in either the View Live Version or Preview view of the course are visible to students.

Step 1. Add LTI component:

  1. In Studio, go to the course you want.

  2. Create or go to the unit where you want to add a MATLAB Grader coding problem.

  3. Follow the instructions in Adding an LTI Component to a course unit from Open edX®.

    1. MATLAB Grader requires authentication. If your LMS administrator has not added the LTI passport to your course settings, you will not be able to continue.

    2. For the following fields, get the values from your LMS administrator.

      • LTI ID—same ID used in the LTI passport string

      • LTI URL—launch URL

    3. Adjust the remaining LTI component settings, as needed.

  4. Click Save.

Step 2. Add your content:

  1. Click Preview, or, after publishing your changes, View Live Version.

  2. Open edX launches the MATLAB Grader interface for copying and creating content. You can create a new problem or select a problem from your available collections or courses.

If you are unable to find the MATLAB Grader integration or need help for any part of this process, contact the LMS administrator or the IT department directory at your institution.
