Automatic Plugin Version Checking

When you sign in to WebAssign as a student, WebAssign checks your scheduled assignments for certain questions identified as requiring either Java or Flash. If any of your assignments include these questions, your system is checked to see if you have the required plugin version installed.

Note WebAssign does not perform a comprehensive check of all assignment questions to determine all plugin requirements. Questions created by instructors might require other plugins or plugin versions.

If you do not have the required plugin version installed, a warning is displayed on your Home and My Assignments pages informing you about the required plugin version.

Click Install Plugin to obtain and install the required plugin.

Assignments identified by WebAssign as requiring a plugin version that is not installed display an icon indicating what plugin is required.

Clicking the assignment name displays an additional warning message. From the message, click Install Plugin.

Assignments with content requiring either Flash or Java can be opened on an iPad, but the Flash or Java content will not be displayed.
