Upon logging in, you will be directed to register for the course at the web site. In order to register, you will need to purchase a WebAssign Student Access Code card from the bookstore, or use a credit card to purchase online. You will need this access code to complete your registration.

You must register by the deadline or you
will not be able to continue to use the WebAssign program.

The note about registering for the course will be followed by a list of Current Assignments.  Note: the due date and time is the last moment that you can submit work on the assignment for grading.  One second late is late.

To work on an assignment, click on the name of the assignment you wish to complete. You will receive the assignment including a list of questions and boxes for inserting the answers.

General Comments:

When you have answered a question and are ready to submit your work for grading, click the link Submit  button.  You may submit each question individually, or answer them all and  submit all at once. Note: To insure that your submission is recorded, wait for a reply from the server. Do not click more than once on the submit button, since this will result in the waste of one of your allowed submission attempts.

You will receive immediate feedback in the form of a grade and detailed marks.   Responses which are correct will have a green check mark and those which are wrong will have a red x.  WebAssign cannot grade essay questions.  It only can detect whether or not you have submitted an answer.  I will come in later and personally grade the essay questions, so don't be surprised if your essay question grade changes.

You may resubmit your answers up to three times, editing your most recent submission by changing just the wrong answers. Leave your correct answers as they have already been entered. Your grade for the assignment will be the grade received for the last submission of answers by the deadline.

If you decide to log off before you are finished with the assignment,and you want to save an answer that you have not submitted, click on the Save Work button for that question.  When you log back in later, you will see the answers from your last submission or from your last save work.  You can then submit corrected values as long as you have not used up your submissions.
