While most students quickly understand how to enter their answers in WebAssign, it nevertheless improves their confidence to provide access to a simple “Getting Started” assignment that walks them through different question types.
So, just in time for the start of a new semester, WebAssign now offers a collection of “Getting Started” questions as a way to introduce your students to our system. We currently offer questions for 3 different disciplines: Developmental Math, Calculus, and Physics. When creating your courses for the fall, be sure to select the Additional Resource called “Getting Started with WebAssign” to be able to quickly create your own “Getting Started” assignment from our bank of pre-coded questions.
Or, if you’ve already created your courses, we have a super easy shortcut for you!

The questions in these assignments are designed especially to coincide with the types of questions that are available in the textbook that you have selected for your class.

They utilize several great assignment features, such as Answer Format Tips, Hints and Feedback, and numerous submission attempts to allow for greater student exploration.
