Let me start by saying that I am not convinced this is a pedagogically sound question, but recent interactions with a variety of students lead me to asking it.
Is there a way to ask a student for the average of their WeBWorK assignments as a WeBWorK question? I have a number of students that will tell me their WeBWorK average is "almost 100", when in reality it is closer to 60.
I thought about emailing them their averages, but I suspect the group I am worried about is not that diligent with reading emails ...

It would be entertaining to require that the score on the assignment about the average is also counted in the average.
Sorry, I could not resist.

Definitely would have to be careful about the precision on that question!!!
