Written Assignment Requirements â€¢ Always include your name, student number, course number, course title and unit number on each page of your written assignment (this is for your protection in case your materials become separated). â€¢ Begin each written assignment by identifying the question number you are answering followed by the actual question itself (in bold type). â€¢ Use a standard essay format for responses to all questions (i.e. an introduction, middle paragraphs and conclusion). â€¢ All responses must be typed double-spaced, using a standard font (i.e. Times New Roman) and 12 point type size for ease of reading and grading. â€¢ All online responses must be submitted as a MS Word Document file only. Written assignments are judged on the quality of the response in regard to the question. Word count is NOT one of the criteria that is used in assigning points to written assignments. However, students who are successful in earning the maximum number of points tend to submit written assignments that fall in the following ranges: â€¢ Undergraduate courses: 350 – 500 words or 1 – 2 pages.
Citation Styles The majority of your response should be your own original writing based on what you have learned from the textbook. However, if you choose to use outside material to answer a written assignment question, be sure to provide a reference (or citation) for the material. The following points are designed to help you understand how to provide proper references for your work: Syllabus x GED 108 Environmental Science â€¢ References are listed in two places. â€¢ The first reference is briefly listed within your answer.
