GUIDE TO WEBASSIGN

Important: Before starting WebAssign, quit any browsers that may be in use (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) and open a new copy. Also, close the browser when you are finished to prevent losing credit for the work you have done.

Logging In

                                                            Go to http//www.webassign.net/student.html

Username: Your first and last name, no caps, no spaces, no hyphens; e.g., the username for Cecilia Vogel would be ceciliavogel.

Institution: augustana

Password: In your initial login, use your Augustana I.D. number, leaving off any leading zeroes. (Once logged in, you can change you password.)

Upon logging in, you will be directed to register for the course at the web site. In order to register, you will need to either purchase a WebAssign access card from the bookstore or register online with a credit card. You must register by the stated deadline or you will not be able to continue to use the WebAssign program, and you will not be able to get homework credit.

To work on an assignment, click on the name of the assignment you wish to complete. The assignment includes a list of questions and boxes for inserting answers. General Comments: When you have answered all the questions on an assignment and are ready to submit your work for grading, click the link Submit for grading at the bottom of the assignment. 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 on submitted answers.  Correct responses will have a green check; incorrect responses will have a red X

You may resubmit your answers (no more than 4 submissions total), editing your most recent submission by changing just the wrong answers. Leave your correct answers as they have already been entered. When the editing process is complete, click on the Submit for grading button. 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 and resubmit your answers at a later time, you will see the answers from your last submission when you log on again and bring up the assignment.
