Completing an Assignment
On your homepage will be shown the current assignments for the
week. There will be an average of three assignments per week. Each
assignment will have an average of 8 problems. Simply select the
assignment you want to work. If you don't complete the assignment, be sure
to save work, so it will be there for your next login. All of the
assignments posted for the week, are due on the Monday following the week
assigned at 10 PM. If you miss that due date, you can request a maximum of
2 automatic extensions until the following Monday at 10 PM. For each extension, you are
granted three more days, not to exceed the end of the extension period, the Monday following the assignment due date. The problems completed during the extension
are scored at 85% of full credit. After you have completed the last
allowed submission, the answer key for the problem will appear.
If you have a question on a problem, click on "Ask your teacher" at the bottom of the assignment, and type in a note.
The instructor will be able to access your version of the question and your submissions. The instructor's answer will appear in the "Ask your teacher" section of the assignnment just below your question. If you want to have an email message in your regular email box letting you know the question has been answered, go to the 'notifications' menu on your WebAssign home page and follow the directions.
