The WeBWorK Project wiki is a place for WeBWorK instructors, authors, administrators and developers to collaborate.

WeBWorK is an open source Perl-based system for delivering individualized homework problems over the web. By providing students with immediate feedback as to the correctness of their answers, students are encouraged to make multiple attempts until they succeed. By individualizing problems, cheating is discouraged. By providing instructors with real-time statistics, lesson plans can be customized to better serve students. WeBWorK is partially supported by the DUE Division of NSF. (See: Grants, awards, and support.)


The documentation below is organized according to the types of questions that may arise. Note that passing the cursor over the text next to the icon will show additional information.
