This double-sided football shaped advertisement is printed on heavy card stock. The obverse has a red, pale red, and white background designed to look like a laced football. At the bottom in the center it reads “WebAssign®.” The reverse is white with black and red lettering that reads “Keep Your Students in the Game. Check out WebAssign’s Sports Question Bank of sports-theme math and statistics questions designed to increase student engagement. Available free for Web Assign users. This question bank is suitable for any algebra through precalculus course or introductory statistics course. webassign.com/sports.”
WebAssign is a customizable online instructional application that enables a teacher to deploy homework assignments, tests and practice problems. WebAssign materials focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) disciplines. Course content includes questions, exercises, problems, simulations, videos, tutorials, and digital versions of select textbooks. Topics available include Accounting, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Geoscience, Mathematics, Physical Science, Physics, Social Studies, and Statistics. It purportedly provides quick feedback--topics needing more review are easily determined by both teacher and student.
This web application permits teachers to use existing courses, create their own, and/or customize existing assignments by adding their own questions.
It includes options to promote academic honesty such as:
- Randomized question values - assigns a different value to each student’s question thus each student will have a different answer.
- Question pool - each student assigned a varied question set.
- Randomized question order - questions displayed in a different order.
- Question set changes - new set of questions used for each term.
- Password protection - set for assignments.
- Time limit - set for completion of work.
- Access restriction - only certain IP addresses allowed access.
- Application restriction - prevents access to any other applications while taking the test.
This and other objects in this acquisition were collected at the Joint Mathematics Meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America held in January 2017.
