Authors' abstract: The goal of this project was to create enhanced WeBWorK problems for the topics of One-Way and Distribution Free models, which are covered in Applied Statistics II at WPI. Current literature was reviewed and interviews were conducted in order to determine a tutoring method that resembles how professors tutor students. A new Perl package was created to facilitate the creation of these problems. The new problems were tested against existing WeBWorK problems and recommendations were made based on the results.
