A Session Error is the most frequently encountered WileyPlus error. It is caused by old data in the browser's cache, usually left over when an old session is ended before WileyPlus expects it. You can resolve it by clearing the browser's cache and cookies. The procedure is explained in the Student Resource Page.
Click on "Class Section Info" and then on "Class Section Properties." In the middle of the page, there is a drop-down, where you can select the name of the class section. Beneath the drop-down is the Class Section URL. This is what you will provide to your students. Here is a quick tutorial on where to find that information.
Click on "Class Section Info" and then on "Class Section Properties." At the bottom of the page is a button that is labeled "STUDENT INFORMATION FLYER". If you click on this button, you will be given a PDF with your course's information. Posting this flyer on your course web page is a good way to get the necessary information to your students.
Give your students the Class Section URL (see above) and they can register themselves. Make sure to tell the students use their official UCSD email address. (Otherwise it might be difficult to export the grades at the end of the term.)
Click on "Assignment" and then on the upper right hand side, click on "Create New Assignment." Follow the five steps to complete the process, and then you will be able to assign this to your classes. Here is a tutorial on how to create an assignment.
Click on "Assignment," and then select "Other Instructors" in the search boxes. Click on Go. It is recommended that you select "Show Per Page — ALL" so you can see everything at once. Find the assignment that you want to assign, and on the right hand side, click on "Assign." Here is a tutorial on how to assign another instructor's homework assignment.
Here is a PDF that will show you how to "finish" your "old" sections. An instructor can always "finish" a course, but only the WileyPLUS Administrator can open a new course. If you are planning to use WileyPLUS for a course which uses a Wiley book, then contact your WileyPLUS Administrator right away. (The current WileyPLUS Administrator is Adam Bowers.)
Students do not need to buy a new registration code when continuing with the next course in a sequence. They can go to the new class section URL and put in their email address and password they used previously, and the system will recognize that they do not need to put in a new registration code. This only works if the "old" class sections from the previous semester are "finished." (See above.)
If your students are having technical issues with WileyPLUS, please tell them to contact Technical Support. Students can "Live Chat" with someone in real time about any questions or problems they may have.
Go to "Gradebook" and under "Class", select your Class Section. Highlight "All Sources" and "All XX assignments", where XX is the number of assignments that have been assigned. Click "SEARCH" and the scores will display in your web browser. Click on the "EXPORT" button to download a .csv file (probably called "gradebook.csv") with the scores. The "total score" will be listed in a column called "Raw Score".
Before clicking the "SEARCH" button, you can choose to have the score represented as a fraction (X/Y) or as a percentage (%). This only applies to the view in your web browser and has no effect on the .csv file. The option "Include Class Section Totals for selected assignments" will provide a "Raw Score" column in your web browser view, but again has no effect on the .csv file, which will provide the "Raw Score" column regardless.
It is assumed that you already have a .csv file with the students' WileyPlus scores called "gradebook.csv" (see above). You need only two columns of the .csv file: "Raw Score" and "Login". TritonEd keeps track of students by the username, which is (usually) the part of the UCSD email address before the @ symbol. The "Login" column contains the email address the student used to register for WileyPlus. (This is why it is so important that the students register for WileyPlus using their UCSD email address.)
TritonEd can only upload files if they are in the correct format. Here, we describe one way to upload the scores to TritonEd:
