Step 3: Adding Students (Add/Drop Method)

So, you’ve already added the students from blackboard into your WeBWorK course – but during the first couple weeks of class, there are students who add and drop. How do we deal with these minor changes? It will be much easier to add students manually, rather than going through the process of creating a new spreadsheet, uploading it and importing it like we did originally.

To add a student (or students) to your WeBWorK course, first login and then click “Classlist Editor” in the lefthand column.

Select the “Add” tab, and enter the number of students you would like to add to your course. In this case, we have opted to add one student.

(You may, of course, add more than one student at this point – just enter the number of students you want to add before clicking “Take Action!”)

Once you’ve clicked “Take Action!”, you’ll see the following:

Add one user to WeBWorK

I’ve already entered the student’s Last Name, First Name, StudentID (which functions as their password), Login Name, and Email Address. The other boxes may be left blank. You’ll notice I’ve also selected multiple problem sets to be assigned to the student immediately upon creation. This is useful if a student adds your course after you’ve already begun assigning problem sets to the other students. Now click the “Add students” button, and you’re done. The student has been added to your roster and has already been assigned any problem sets which you selected during the add process.

Removing dropped students is even easier:

Select the student to be dropped:

Select the circle next to “Delete (no users)” and change “no users” to “selected users”:

Click on “Take Action!” and the student is now removed from your roster.
