4 2 Homework Grading Rubric Points per Unit 0 .10 to .25 .26 to .50 .51 to .75 .76 to 1.0 Homework The objective of the Homework assignment is to provide an opportunity to apply or practice the tools and techniques covered in the course and to provide an opportunity to articulate key concepts addressed in the course. The homework is not a test. Any resource (eLecture, web-based,content, study partners, and the Solutions Workbook) may be used to to help answer the problems in each worksheet. The Homework problems generally correspond to the types of problems you will encounter in the Applications Assignment, which will be made available at the beginning of Unit 11. So, working on the Homework problems should be good practice for the Applications Assignment. The worksheets in this workbook correspond to the Units in the course. In two cases, there are two worksheets for a Unit (Units 4 & 10). Each worksheet contains several problems keyed to the Unit's Learning Objectives, the Unit's eLecture, and the text content covered in the Unit. Work through the problems for a Unit. Generally, answers to the problems are to be placed in a specific cell . Typically, the target cells will be "boxed" or highlighted. See cells R3 & R5 for an example. In some cases, graphs & charts for example, space is provided near the problem's directions. In most cases, directions for a problem are provided in a cell above problem's workspace. However, as you work through the worksheets, look for the red comment triangle in the upper right-hand corner of worksheet cells that are highlighted in yellow . The comments will reveal specific instructions or guides to solving the problems. See the comment in the upper right corner of this instruction box. Simply hover the cursor above the cell having a comment, and the comment will be displayed.When finished with the problems for a Unit, submit to the Homework Dropbox for the Unit. To receive credit for the Homework, it should be submitted before the close of the Unit (Tuesday @ midnight) the week that the Unit is open. Some of the problems are displayed far down the worksheets. Be sure to scroll all the way down to find all the problems in each worksheet. Homework Grade Homework is 10% of the final course grade. There is a Homework assignment in each of the 12 Units. Homework will be graded according to the rubric below and the Top 10 Homework grades will be summed to get the Homework contribution to the final grade. Homework not submitted, submitted after the close of the unit, or submitted homework omits the majority of the problems in the worksheet. Up to 25% of the problems completed correctly. 26-50% of the problems completed correctly. 51-75% of the problems completed correctly. 76-100% of the problems completed correctly.
