“WebAssign really helped me have a better understanding of how to do a problem, so I could think through similar and harder problems. WebAssign helped me get the A because everything is in there.”

“Students loved the Watch It videos … They weren’t trying to read and interpret concepts – they had someone telling them what was being stated. My students have always been highly engaged, but they are comprehending the content better.”

"I find it incredibly empowering when I work on a problem for a long time and finally arrive at the right answer. If you are really struggling with a homework question, WebAssign gives you a few different options for ways to get help. This empowers you to take control of the situation and persist through the challenge."

“It’s a great study tool, and can help you improve your grade. Now that I’ve experienced WebAssign® I would pay to use it even if it weren’t required.”

“It’s easy to use, answers are easy to enter, and it accepts multiple versions of the correct answer. I appreciate that it is a great solution for both students and instructors.”

“WebAssign is so helpful. This generation likes technology, and I like that WebAssign frees me to teach them rather than just read and lecture. I have never been disappointed with WebAssign! I don’t want to change, ever! This is the best software out there and I’m thankful.”
