Formatting and Directions:

I want to make sure we are absolutely clear on this so there are no hurt feelings down the line, but last minute emergencies (grandma passes away), problems (computer crashes), etc will not be grounds for me to give you any more time than the time you have now to do get the assignment uploaded. Be sure to back up and save a copy of your Assignment in case you or we experience technical problems.

Assignments must be uploaded as a single file attachment (no multiple files will be accepted) to the drop box as either a Word document (.doc or .rtf file formats only), or if you are using another word-processing program such as WordPerfect, then I will be able to accept any file saved in Rich Text Format (.rtf), or Hyper Text Markup Language (.html or .htm). No other file formats will be accepted for credit.

This is a 400-level (senior level) class ~~ I expect at least 400-level (senior level) work. You will be graded on what you submit (see grading rubric). As you can see, there are 70 points up for grabs. This assignment will constitute 25% of your final grade.

Questions MUST be numbered and restated in their entirety at the top of each page and each question should have its own page(s) devoted to it ~~do not run question 1 into question 2 on the same page. Follow the sample provided in the Doc Sharing Area. You’ll see a document there entitled “Sample Research Assignment Format” Bottom line — go out of your way to make your assignment easy to read and to grade!

The assignment must be double-spaced and you MUST use parenthetical citations. You must reference your work for all questions~~ I’m not interested in hearsay. When citing the text, a simple reference to “course text” or “Labor Relations” and the applicable page numbers will suffice.

Points will be deducted (up to 10 points from the 70 points possible) for not following the formatting directions cited in the two preceding bulleted items. Please do not let this happen to you.

Be sure to include COMPLETE URL for any articles you are using in support of each paper. You should test and retest the URL to be sure that I can see what you want me to see. Sending a complete and active URL is your responsibility. If I cannot see your article, you will not receive credit for that article.

Note: Sometimes when using electronic or web-based library databases the web site and/or URL you locate requires one to sign up and log in to see the article. I do not wish to have to do this so, it may become necessary to copy and paste the contents of the article onto a separate page in your word processing program (such as Microsoft Word). Check and re-check the URL you provide to make sure I can see what you want me to see.

When writing your papers, be sure to include applicable excerpts from the article (in quotes and referenced) that you use in support of your statements.

There are faxes for this order.
