"WebAssign Review"

What do you like best?

The think I like the best about webassign is its easy to use platform and software. The technology is seamless and never seems to do things that do not work. It is user friendly and I never have many problems using the application

What do you dislike?

One of the things I dislike is the fact that the system for the application crashes often. There are many working parts to webassign and some things do not work well with Mac OS. It is important to be able to have a computer system that can run this well and not encounter bugs

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out and see what you think of it. I think it is a great app and really helps integrate many different tools that one could use relating to Math

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some of the business problems we can solve is a quicker, more efficient and effective way to utilize online textbooks and assign homework to college students that is able to grade instantly and have an interconnected platform with the teacher

"WebAssign is the whole package"

What do you like best?

What I like best about WebAssign is the simplicity and design of it. They could not make it more simple to use and this allows anyone to learn it quickly and efficiently. Some of the best things about this product are that I can teach whoever steps into my office how to use it. Another thing I like are the updates that are made to this product and how we can us that to even better ourselves more.

What do you dislike?

The only things that I do not like is that it can seem clunky at times but that can be overlooked because of all the positives. Like i said previously the updates help immensely

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product is the real deal I would recommend this product to pretty much anyone who would want to use it. The simplicity and things that it can help you obtain is very much worth everything.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving how easy it is to get things done efficiently. I have noticed a lot less questions and faster tasks.

"WebAssign Review"

What do you like best?

WebAssign is a malleable product that allows for instructors to choose which questions they want their students to answer. It allows students to do practice problems with a small amount of guidance for the questions themselves. It generates questions that integrate multiple concepts to demonstrate their relationship to students.

What do you dislike?

It is not the most user friendly software, and can be tedious to use for the student. It is not the most helpful, and it's interface is cumbersome. It displays all of the questions on one screen, and this can be exhausting. Additionally, it randomly generates different problems for different student to minimize cheating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please explore other options. this may not be the best solution to your class's needs. If the instructor is not adept enough to impart proficiency into his students, then WebAssign will only burden the students with assignments from which they will not learn anything. The user interface does not help either. It is not attractive towards the current generation of students, and would benefit from being more "catchy".

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WebAssign allows instructors to give homework assignments to student without having to correct it by hand. Webassign will do the grading for the instructor so that TA's do not have to get involved. This frees up time for more office hours, and more supplementary lecture time if needed. It also allows for instructors to track the progress of their students throughout the semester by setting assignments periodically.

"Great homework app"

What do you like best?

The site includes textbook questions that teachers can choose and assign to student. It's great for distance learning and assigning virtual assignments. Note that you can only sign up once you have an access code from the teacher.

What do you dislike?

As students, you have to pay to access the homework, and the subscription isn't permanent (meaning you have to keep renewing). In other words, it's kind of pay-by-semester, which for students, obviously, can be costly or not ideal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Price is sort of expensive; so be wary of costs up front and for renewal later. Be careful of buying the subscription right away (if you purchased a textbook, sometimes you can get the access code for the site with it).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instantly assign homework questions to students (as instructors); for students, instantly access and answer homework questions assigned. The support team is helpful but do expect to have issues sometimes with the site or properly accessing the course info.

"Simplified Information Management for Higher Education"

What do you like best?

WebAssign makes grading and learning completely transparent. It allows both students and faulty to see their improvements and where they need to improve, and is incredibly helpful for end-of-semester grading and communication with TA's and tutors.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the maximum number of tries, I would appreciate an override feature for that. Please consider making sure you have a reliable internal IT department, it is difficult to obtain help from the WebAssign support, and it is incredibly important that a reliable IT company is on board.

"A buggy software that needs improvement"

What do you like best?

Webassign is a convienent way to assign homework for instructors. Its easily accessible for students to do their assignments. It autogrades homework. And gives good feedback if the student misses the question. It is also relatively customizable so instructors can choose what problems to assign to students.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the website grades the problem incorrectly. It will sometime assign the incorrect number of points to a problem so the instructor has to go back and manuelly adjust the score. The website also requires that the students type in a precise answer in a certain format so even if the answer is correct, the student may get it incorrect for small reasons like this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve the user interface. Also resolve bugs. And improve customer service. Sometimes they are unreachable which is inconvientent at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webassign is an efficient way to grade and assign homework to students.

"A necessary evil"

What do you like best?

WebAssign is the most established online homework platform. There is a large amount of content

What do you dislike?

It is very unintuitive and particular about the answers it accepts. There is very little benefit to using WebAssign for homework besides automatic grading, as it does not help students with homework at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Online homework grading is made easy at it grades it automatically.

"Features do not work as advertised"

What do you like best?

The only redeeming feature is that it provides on-line access to the book.

What do you dislike?

The promise 24/7 support and when you call on the weekend, it takes over one hour to speak to a representative and then they tell you they can't help you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read their documentation carefully and ask a lot of questions. Don't take their answers at face value

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My students use WebAssign to complete their homework assignments. The benefit I should be receiving is that I don't have to grade homework assignments, therefore saving me time. However, because of all of the technical issues, it is not saving me anything.

"Everything worked well"

What do you like best?

As an administrator/instructor, Webassign is easy to use. It is easy to track the student process and view their scores. The wide variety of available content makes it good for every discipline.

What do you dislike?

It is not good from a student's viewpoint. Webassign has decided to make their codes as cloudy and hard-to-use as possible. Some codes work for different products and only those products, other codes work for a wider range of items. The program is quite difficult to use for students too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This website works well, but I personally prefer Pearson's MylabPlus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This significantly reduces the workload for instructors. In brief, instructors create assignments online within WebAssign and electronically transmit them to their class. Students enter their answers online, and WebAssign automatically grades the assignment and gives students instant feedback on their performance.

"As an instructor I recommend it but"

As an instructor I recommend it but from a students viewpoint, I do not recommend it. It gives you options to choose the problems you want. And it is easy to track the student process and view their scores.

What do you dislike?

Terrible customer services. If you try to call them, you will be put on wait for hours according to my students.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
