This question collection was developed by Dr. Kay Sandberg, an award winning organic chemistry instructor at North Carolina State University. These questions covering the main topics in organic chemistry, have also been correlated as closely as possible to the appropriate chapters in most major organic chemistry textbooks and provides a more secure solution to online homework for organic chemistry, since most organic chemistry textbook questions have detailed solutions published in the accompanying student solution guide. The question set has been extensively class-tested in large enrollment courses at NC State.

To adopt this question collection correlated to the textbook you're currently using in your course, simply select your textbook while creating your course in WebAssign. To view a complete list of all organic chemistry textbooks using these questions available in WebAssign, view our Chemistry Textbook Collection page.

Question Collection Features: Questions requiring automatic assessment of student-drawn structures, including skeletal structures, Lewis structures, reaction mechanisms with electron-flow arrows ("pushing electrons"), isotopically-labeled reactions, and multi-step syntheses, use the popular MarvinSketch application. WebAssign grades these structures automatically, checking for stereo features, rings, chains, etc.

Questions requiring automatic assessment of chemical formulas and reaction equations use WebAssign's chemPad, an intuitive answer-entry palette with over 150 lines of intelligent answer feedback.

Other questions use a variety of response types, including fill-in-the-blank, multiple-choice, multiple-select and numerical entry.

Notice to Adopters of Previous Editions: Previous editions used the JME Molecular Editor to draw and automatically grade structures. This new edition upgrades that limited functionality by replacing it with the more powerful MarvinSketch application. For this new edition, we have also upgraded and increased the number of randomizations per question. Even questions using images and multiple-choice answers have been randomized where possible.
