Assignment Loads Slowly

Sometimes, assignments load slowly in WebAssign. Often, this is because a large assignment has been configured to display all questions at once.

A "large" assignment:
  • has many questions, or
  • has a few questions with many question parts, or
  • uses multimedia like videos and interactive tutorials.

Try the following approaches to improve assignment load times:

  • Set the assignment to display one question at a time.
  • Schedule frequent short assignments instead of a few long ones.

If you have tried these approaches and your students still report slow assignments, contact WebAssign.
