3 Advantages for Learning to Edit Questions in WebAssign
1 Comment


Who knows your students better than you? With WebAssign’s question editing ability you have the power to edit any question to fit the needs of your students. In the video above, Scott Crawford of the University of Wyoming runs through how to get started editing questions. There are three major benefits to learning how to edit textbook questions.


  1. Relevant Applications 
    • You can change the context of a word problem to be relevant to your students. Class full of nursing students? Easily change the words in the question to be related to medicine.

  2. Rounding Tolerance
    • Frustrated students think they have the right answer, but the rounding isn't being accepted? You have the power to change that very quickly in WebAssign, as Scott covers above.

  3. Changing the Randomization
    • Change the entire context of the question by simply tweaking the randomization for the numbers in the problem.

Excellent! Thanks. Great point about how you have to check to see what kind of question you're copying (numerical vs. say, multiple choice). Sometimes I'll copy the text of a question into a new question and then when I run it, it won't seem to work. That's when I realize I haven't picked the right choice in the Mode drop-down. Really helpful video Scott.
