I am considering using Maple T.A. as a tool for formative assessment (and possibly at some stage, summative assessment) for courses such as calculus and linear algebra. What are your experiences and tips on using Maple T.A. effectively? Is there evidence that using Maple T.A. or similiar tools leads to more comprehensive understanding of the material and/or higher grades?

Edit: I recognize that there is a risk that using a software system for formative assessment might not facilitate developing good mathematical writing skills (see James S. Cook's answer to How can we help students learn to write about their mathematics?). Suggestions on how to deal with this issue either in Maple T.A. or alongside it are also welcome.
