- SUBMITTING ASSIGNMENTS:
There is an assignment to do every week of the term. Only 4 of the
assignments are to be submitted (by email) for grading along with
1 online quiz.
For those assignments which are not to be submitted, there are answer-checking
devices that will enable you to judge whether you are mastering the
There are also answer-checking devices for some of the assignments
that do have to be submitted.
- The assignment submission due dates are shown on the syllabus.
- All email assignments are to submitted before 11:59 PM on
the day on which they are due.
- Links to submission forms are located on the Instructions web pages
for each assignment.
- Assignments must be submitted on time. Assignments
that are late will receive a zero. No exceptions will be made.
- Assignments may be submitted early, at any time before the submission
deadline. By submitting assignments early, you will avoid last minutes
crises (illness, work or family problems, computer difficulties, etc.)
that may hinder your getting the assignment in on time.
- To whom to send your assignments:
(please check your syllabus)
- PROPER STYLE FOR THE SUBJECT BOX OF YOUR EMAILS:
For all emails, place your course and section designation, last
name, first name, and topic in the email subject box. For example:
- Re: Core 3.32 NET 1 Day Section, Smith, Mary, Mins Part 2 submission
- Re: Core 3.32 NET 1 Night Section, Perez, Joseph, Mins Part 2
- Re: Core 3.32 NET 1 Day Section, Manzo, Jay, Maps Part 4 resubmit
- Re: Core 3.32 NET 1 Evening Section, Arkova, Alexandra, suggestion
- Etc, etc.
Please note that you may not submit your
assignment submission forms as attachments. They must be pasted into
the body of the email.
We will not open any attachments.
- EDITABLE TEXT:
Most people will have no problem emailing assignment submission forms.
Please do the following:
- Make sure that when you email your assignments, the completed
submission form that you have selected, copied and pasted into the
email looks like the original. It should retain the paragraphs and
line spacings of the original. However, scroll bars and outlines
of the text boxes need not appear.
- Make sure that the text in the email is editable. If
it is not editable, I can't make corrections.
- When the submission form has more than one text box, it is usually
better to copy and paste the contents of each text box into the
email separately. Do not use 'select all' for the entire submission
form. Instead, select the contents within each text box
and paste them separately into the email.
If you are having trouble sending editable text, here is a possible
- Open up your email account and create an email into which you
will paste your assignment.
- BEFORE you paste the assignment, go to 'Format' on your email
form and change the format from 'rich text' to 'html'. For Microsoft
Outlook emails (and maybe some other types of email providers),
you may have to first change the format from 'rich text' to 'plain
text' and then click on format again and change the 'plain text'
- Once you have changed the email formatting to 'html', THEN paste
the assignment into the email.
- Check the text in the email to make sure it can be edited.
- RESUBMISSION OF ASSIGNMENTS TO IMPROVE YOUR GRADE:
- If an assignment is submitted on time and the grade received is
less than a 7, it may be resubmitted.
- It must be resubmitted within one week of the date on which your
graded submission is sent to you.
- It must be clearly marked 'resubmission' and the entire assignment
must be sent, not just the corrected part.
- Write 'resubmission' in the subject bar of your email.
- The original wrong answer should be left as you originally submitted
it. The changed (corrected) answer should be placed to the right
of the wrong answer and surrounded by brackets. For example: 2+2=5
- The grade you get on the 'resubmission' will be averaged with
the original submission.
- If the averaged grade is less than 7, the recorded grade will
be changed. For example: original grade 4, resubmission grade 8,
average = 6, recorded grade = 6.
- However, if the average grade comes out to 7 or more, the recorded
grade will be 7. For example: original grade 6, resubmission grade
10, average grade = 8, recorded grade = 7.
- That is, by resubmitting your work, you may be able to raise your
grade to 7, but not to greater than 7. I have adopted this policy
so that those who do well the first time around will be rewarded.
- Only one resubmission per assignment will be allowed.
- Remember, you must meet deadlines. If you don't meet the deadline
for the first submission, you get a zero. Resubmissions that are
late will not be evaluated.
- NOTIFICATION OF ASSIGNMENT GRADES:
You will be notified by email of your assignment grades.
We encourage you to find other students in the class to work with.
If you wish to communicate by email with other students in order to
collaborate on assignments, study for exams, etc., please send me
an email. We will create and distribute a list of emails of those who
have contacted me. We will not distribute your names, just your email
addresses. Please note, however, that for all written material (e.g.,
journal entries, short answers, essays), each student must answer
questions in his/her own words. On exams or assignments, answers that
are duplicates of others' work will not be accepted and will receive
a zero. Don't give your completed homework assignment to others. Don't accept completed homework assignments from others.
