Creating Homework Sets

Copying/renaming an existing assignment

WeBWorK will not allow you to rename a homework assignment, but it will allow you to clone assignments.

  1. In the Homework Sets Editor, check the box next to the assignment you wish to clone.
  2. Select “Create a new set named” and enter a name for your assignment. Note that spaces are not allowed.
  3. Change “a new empty set” to “a duplicate of the first selected set” and click “Take Action!”
  4. Be sure to change the due dates on your new assignment.
  5. Note that your assignment will not be accessible to students until you assign it to them.
Creating an assignment from scratch

  2. Click “Take Action!”
  3. Be sure to change the due dates on your new assignment.
  4. You can add problems to your new assignment in several different ways.
  5. Note that your assignment will not be accessible to students until you assign it to them.
Importing a new assignment

If you or someone else has previously exported a homework set to a set definition file, you can turn that file back into a homework set.

  1. Use the File Manager to place the set definition file (*.def) in the templates directory of your WeBWorK course.
  2. In the Homework Sets Editor, select “Import” and choose from the menus as appropriate.
  3. Click “Take Action!”
  4. Make sure the due dates on your imported assignment are correct.
  5. Note that your assignment will not be accessible to students until you assign it to them.
