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?
