Twelve of 19 college algebra classes used WeBWorK and 7 used traditional paper and pencil homework (PPH). Given the earlier quantitative result that no significant difference in performance between WeBWorK and PPH classes was found ([authors]), a qualitative analysis of 358 student and instructor surveys revealed three primary categories of student perceptions related to WeBWorK: views about its usefulness, intentionality in engaging with mathematics, and challenges to student beliefs about mathematics. Student and instructor comments are reported within the context of self-regulated learning. Results support the conjecture that even a narrow use of WeBWorK as a substitute for handwritten homework is at least as effective as traditionally graded paper and pencil homework for students learning college algebra.
