With WebAssign, you can create assignments using questions from your course textbook, from our extensive database, from faculty at other institutions, or from your own collection.
Questions from a Course Textbook
WebAssign partners with leading academic publishers to offer questions, exercises, problems, simulations, videos, and tutorials from textbooks in a variety of disciplines. If your course uses one of the many textbooks supported by WebAssign, you can create assignments from textbook materials with only a few clicks. If a textbook is not currently supported, then you can request that textbook be added to our expanding collection.Read more about questions from a course textbook
Questions from Unrestricted Sources
WebAssign also includes a large database of questions that can be used freely with any course or textbook. These materials come from three distinct sources:
Questions written by individuals, groups of teachers, and experienced WebAssign instructors. WebAssign supports these materials by fixing errors and making improvements.
Questions written by WebAssign instructors for their own courses. These individuals generously identified their work as public so it could be used by other WebAssign instructors. The authors retain editorial control of their materials and may change them at any time.
WebAssign has a library of questions from standardized tests. Current sources include the New York State Regents end-of-course exams and the NC Chem project, a consortium of high school teachers who are developing a common set of questions for general chemistry and biology use.
Questions of Your Own Creation
With WebAssign, it is easy to create your own questions in minutes. Use our templates, or start from scratch with Mathematica, Matlab, MarvinSketch, or our wide selection of pads (mathPad, chemPad, calcPad, physPad [coming soon], pencilPad) and our Graphing Tool. You can even use Camtasia to embed online 'clicker' questions that are automatically scored and recorded in your gradebook. Need help? WebAssign's expert technical staff is available to help you code questions.Read more about questions of your own creation
