participate, across multiple schools -David Whittaker Cascadia CC Instructor Demo Create new course Add text item w/ math & graphs Add assessment

Categorization Grade book List Students Copy course items Shift course dates Comparisons Blackboard Blackboard contains more advanced course management features, but lacks user-friendly math and graph display, has limited ability to ask randomized questions, and cannot automatically grade math expression answers.

iLrn, MyMathLab, etc. WAMAPs assessment system is very similar to many of these systems, but does not include tutorials or links to textbook materials. Webassign WAMAP is very similar to Webassign, but is free, and (in my opinion) is a bit easier to write custom questions in. Webassign does include a much larger existing question set, but many of the questions are not randomized. Primary Advantages Cost

Its free! Updates and improvements WAMAP is continually updated and improved based on user input, and is not locked to a vendors update cycle. The smaller user base also allows quicker response to problems and requests. Customization Because WAMAP is open-source, it can be easily customized to meet your needs at a much lower cost than commercial solutions. Want to use it?
