Simplify Your Instruction
To provide you a newly simplified, intuitive LMS integration experience which gives you the ability to quickly and easily set up and customize your course, all with the convenience of automated grade sync, the Cengage LMS Integration is coming to WebAssign! Available for all courses in WebAssign using Cengage and select OER publisher content.
New LMS Enhancements
Available November 9: Automatic Score Syncing for Un-attempted Assignments
A new LMS feature will automatically sync un-attempted, past due assignments from WebAssign (shown as ND/NS scores on the WebAssign ScoreView page) to your LMS gradebook as a 0. As a result, LMS grades will now include these assignments in the overall score calculation.
Note: If you have any ND/NS scores prior to November 9th release that you would like synced with your LMS gradebook as a 0, we recommend that you go to the Class ScoreView in WebAssign and click the ‘Send Scores to LMS’ button which will capture any un-synced scores.
Reach out to your Cengage Representative with any questions.
- Easier, More Intuitive Course Set Up: With a new simplified set up at the beginning of your course, you are just a few steps away from both you and your students accessing Cengage resources using your campus’ LMS login.
- Efficiently Customize Content with Deep Linking: Create, schedule, and link new assignments from WebAssign to your LMS course using our intuitive course Content Selector, allowing you to choose which assignments you want synced.
- Synchronize Grades Automatically: Need to have your course grades recorded in your LMS gradebook? No problem. Simply select the activities you want synced, and you’re done!
