One of WebAssign’s most powerful features is the ability to create your own questions or modify existing questions. In addition to detailed documentation and step-by-step video tutorials, our content experts are available to answer questions or provide individualized training about coding WebAssign questions.
Create Your Own Questions
WebAssign’s powerful question editor makes it easy to create your own questions. Each question can use any combination of text, mathematical equations and formulas, sound, pictures, video, and Java applets. Numbers, words, phrases, graphics, sound or video files can be randomized so that each student receives a different version of the same question.
In addition to common question types such as multiple choice, fill-in, essay, and numeric, you can also incorporate our robust answer entry palettes (mathPad, chemPad, calcPad, physPad, pencilPad, Graphing Tool) or integrate powerful applications such as Mathematica, Matlab, or MarvinSketch. You can even use Camtasia to embed ‘clicker’ questions that are automatically scored and recorded in the GradeBook.
Modify Existing Questions
Want to customize an existing question? Use our question editor to copy an existing question and modify it to suit your course.
Existing questions can be your own, or from one of our multiple question content options. Please remember that you must adhere to copyright laws if you choose to modify copyrighted material such as textbook questions. For example, you should remove all images and retain a citation to the original source.
