Templates

Most people write problems starting from templates. Problems from the OPL can be modified to suit individual needs, or existing problem templates can be used to create new problems.

Basic Information

WeBWorK problems should be written with the use of MathObjects. Most of the templates mentioned above will include the MathObject Macros (recognizable by the line "MathObjects.pl" in the LoadMacros section of the code). For those who would like to read up on the basics of coding problems the following pages are recommended:

Templates, programming examples, and problem libraries from the University of Lethbridge

Reference documents and manuals

  • Problem Authoring Videos, recordings from the PREP 2015 Problem Authoring Workshop.
  • Applets, how to embed Flash and Java applets into WeBWorK questions.
  • SequentialProblems revealing the problem one step at a time
  • POD -- POD = "plain old documentation" -- original documentation embedded in the code files -- this is the place to find the most complete and most technical description of macro behaviors.
  • WeBWorK Problem Authoring Tutorial aimed at people who already know TeX, but need to learn about Perl, PG, and MathObjects (pdf file).
  • Customize Course This page includes a bit of code that allows student to obtain a new version of a problem.
  • Notes on training authors, and suggestions for further documentation-- Sam Hathaway
  • The Good Questions project at Cornell University [1]
  • Converting CAPA problems for use with WeBWorK (This article has been retained as a historical document.)
