Instructor Assistance

In addition to the usual help provided by your school, such as tutoring by teaching assistants and consultation with your instructor, you can also communicate with your instructor through WebAssign.

By default, you can:

  • Send private messages to your instructor
  • Send Ask Your Teacher messages about questions on your assignments
  • Request more time to complete an assignment

Your instructor can turn off any of these features in WebAssign.

Note: If asking your instructor about a particular assignment question, refer to the question using the question name rather than number. This is because the questions on your assignment are often different from your classmates' assignments, or listed in a different order.

The question name is displayed on the right side of the question header. Question names might not be shown for some questions or assignments.
