One of WebAssign's most important features is its powerful and easy-to-use gradebook. Instructors are always in complete control, and both instructors and students can access grades anytime and anywhere an Internet connection is available. Set-up is simple using the built-in wizard, and established settings can be transferred to other classes with only a few clicks.
With the gradebook, instructors can easily track the progress of an individual student or the entire class. Overview pages show class scores for recent assignments. Click any assignment and see a breakdown by question, allowing instructors to identify areas where students are struggling. When an individual student needs help, instructors can access every submission that student has made for a particular assignment.
Want to drop the lowest homework score or weight the final exam more heavily than the midterm? Need to calculate final grades but didn't use WebAssign for all assignments? No problem. WebAssign allows you to upload scores from paper-based activities and calculates all grades based on your personal weighting scheme. WebAssign can even assign letter grades based on numeric ranges you define.
Interested in analyzing grades across your entire class? WebAssign's gradebook puts the right tools at your fingertips, calculating statistics ranging from means and standard deviations to printable summaries of assignments with response histograms for each question. At the end of the semester (or any time you choose) you can download a spreadsheet of student grades and scores.
