3 Peer Tips for Automatically Granting Extensions in WebAssign



Getting hounded with excuses for late homework? Don’t worry, WebAssign’s automatic extensions are here to save the day. In the video above, Scott Crawford of the University of Wyoming runs through how he takes advantage of the automatic extensions to take care of students who need some extra time on assignments.


  1. You can automatically set the length of time for each extension request.
  2. You have the power to set how many extensions a student can ask for per assignment.
  3. Determine what the penalty is, whether it’s a percent docked after the deadline, on the total assignment or a set number of points deducted.


With WebAssign, you can tailor your course to reflect your philosophy of teaching and your classes needs. Decide not only how automatic extensions will work to save you time, but also decide what types of assignments are even allowed extensions.
