Manage Problems

After adding problems to courses, drag and drop them to place them in your preferred order. Copy existing courses and problems to reuse them.

Organize Problems

After you create problems, you can change the order in which they appear in a specific assignment. You can also move them to a different assignment in the same course. To move a problem, use the menu on the left to drag and drop the problem to the target location.

After you create problems, you can change the order in which they appear within a course or collection. To move a problem, click the Reorder Content link at the top of the Contents pane. When the reorder handle is displayed before each problem, you can drag and drop problems using this handle.​

You can reorganize problems even after a course is active. You cannot move a problem to a different course, though you can copy a problem to a different course.

Copy a Problem from Add Problem

From Add Problem, you can copy:

  • Getting Started with MATLAB Grader and Introduction to Programming (verified instructors only): Copy sample problems authored by MathWorks staff and adapt it for your course or collection. These coding problems illustrate good practices for writing problems and creating assessments.

  • MATLAB® Grader™ Courses and Collections: Copy problems currently in your list of courses and collections and modify as necessary.

Copy a Problem from Source

Copy your existing problems and modify them as needed. Copying problems is useful when:
