Instructions (read all carefully).

  2. LEO time governs. The university late penalty is 10 points per day late. The late penalty applies even 1 minute after the due date and time.
  3. Please submit your answers only in a Word document to your individual student folder. Having the answers only makes it easier for me to grade.
  4. I cannot grade assignments submitted only to You must submit your test answers to your individual student folder in order for me to grade it.
  5. Please be sure you have submitted the Word document you intended; posting the wrong document may cause you to be penalized, especially if it is late.  Please, please double-check by opening your document in your folder after you’ve submitted it to make sure it is complete and the one you intended to submit.  After the deadline, I cannot accept revisions to your assignment.

  7. Please remember to contact 360 Support for LEO technical questions. I’m really not a techie. J
  8. Realize that I cannot answer questions that are actually part of the test itself. I will answer “administrative type” questions. Post questions to the General Q & A/Class Feedback area (vs. email) so everyone has the same information.
