Does anyone know of  references to publications on the benefit of homework engines, specifically of WebWorK, but also in general.

We've written an NSF/MSP grant which proposes the introduction of homework engines like WebWork into the K12 system here in Nevada and we are among the 16 finalists. Now we need to answer some detailed questions to the NSF Review Committee by the end of this week, and it would be nice with some specific reference.

If you have some references, please post them here.

Hi Lars,

Here are two references:

"Statistical Evidence that Web_Based Homework Helps", FOCUS --- The Newsletter of the Mathematical Association of America, Vol 23, No 2 (Feb 2003) by L. Hirsch and C. Weibel from Rutgers University. See also 

Also Mike, Vicki, and I have a short paper that was presented at the ICTM2 (

"WeBWorK - Generating, Delivering, and Checking Math Homework via the Internet".  The proceeding were "published" by Wiley as a CD rom (ISBN:0-471-46332-9.
