Sakai Integration

If available, instructors and students can access WebAssign assignments from Sakai®.

Features

Basic integration between Sakai and WebAssign provides automatic rostering of students and single sign-on to WebAssign from Sakai:

  • Students access WebAssign directly from Sakai and do not need to sign in to WebAssign separately.
  • When a student accesses WebAssign for the first time from Sakai, a new WebAssign account is automatically created and added to your WebAssign class roster.
Note:
  • Integration does not enable single sign-on to Sakai from WebAssign.
  • Students who drop the Sakai section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.
  • Students who transfer out of the Sakai section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.

Before You Begin

For all LMS integrations:

  • Set up integration at the start of the term, and only for WebAssign course sections with no enrolled students.
  • Turn off self-enrollment for your WebAssign course.

Requesting Sakai Integration
