Authors' abstract: This project’s goal was designing effective WeBWorK problems for simple and multiple linear regression topics covered in the course Applied Statistics II at WPI. In this project, current literature concerning
online homework was reviewed to determine the criteria for effective online homework problems. The WeBWorK problems were designed according to these criteria. The problems designed in this project were also tested against existing WeBWorK problems on the same topics for effectiveness and recommendations were made based on the results.
