WebAssign Questions:  If you are a student and you have a question, problem, or concern about your WebAssign homework, it is MUCH easier for me if you click on "Ask Your Teacher" within WebAssign.  If you want more tries or more time on your homework, click on "Extension Request" in WebAssign.
Homework Extension Policy

Homework_Extension_Policy iconHomework Extension Policytitle

Students who want more TRIES on a WebAssign homework can ask for them by clicking on "Extension Request" and just saying "more tries."  It is not necessary to say which problem or why you need more tries.  More tries will always be granted, with no grade penalty.
Students who want more TIME on a WebAssign homework for a reason other than absence or illness will get it if they click on "Extension Request" and ask for it:  (1) before the original due date and time and (2) with a new due date.  It is not necessary to give the reason.  For example, "I am requesting an extension until Sunday."  Students who complete their homework (95% or higher) during their extended time will have their grades changed to 10/10 in SchoolLoop, but these are processed only about every two weeks.
Students with absences, illnesses, or other circumstances can be given other extensions by arrangement.
