WeBWork is an online testing platform developed by the Mathematical Association of America. It provides excellent tools to developed complex, equation-based online questions and deploys them within the Canvas system. There are online libraries of free WebWork problems (Math and Engineering).
WeBWorK is an online platform for delivering individualized homework problems. By giving students instant feedback, WeBWorK encourages students to make multiple attempts until they succeed. Cheating is discouraged as the problems are individualized. Instructors receive real-time statistics which helps customize lesson plans to better serve students.
WeBWorK is a UBC supported web-based homework system which was developed at the University of Rochester in 1995. UBC's Math department first piloted WeBWorK in 2009, and has since been adopted by many more departments. The current instance is deployed in a high availability environment using UBC IT infrastructure, providing a reliable service to all faculties across UBC.
Students access WeBWorK through Canvas, which is required for the course roster and grades to sync.
You want students to access WeBWorK through Canvas, at least the first time to log into WeBWorks. Accessing this way automatically adds the student to the WebWorks course and will push the WeBWork grades back to Canvas Gradebook.
On subsequent visits, students can go directly to WebWorks if they want.
WeBWorK is being used in Math and Engineering at UBC. At UBC Engineering, a number of Electrical, Mechanical, and Chemical Engineering professors take advantage of the WeBWork system. UBC Engineering has undertaken a multi-year project to build libraries of WeBWork problems.
