Unformatted text preview: How to Fill Out Team Assignment Sheet as Well as Assignment Headers (Chemistry 113) On the first day of recitation, the following 6 students show up on time with their weekly assignment sheets printed and pre- read beforehand. They know (based on assigned seats) that they sit at table “Be” and sit down for a quick overview of the syllabus, grading, and new information pertaining to their current weeks activity. Their names are: Kimberly Taylor John Mason Thomas Williams David Clarke Kelly Martin Jennifer Pearce On the first day of recitation, each of them looks at each other, decides who they might want to work together with and assemble into teams of two. They decide to arrange themselves like so: Team 1 Kimberly Taylor John Mason Team 2 Thomas Williams David Clarke Team 3 Kelly Martin Jennifer Pearce After they move next to each other, they listen to their instructor(s) instruct them on how to create their “filenames” that will be used for the rest of the semester. After following the formula below, they each create their filenames: [Recitation Section and Number][Table Letter(s)][Team Number] Since these six students know that they are in recitation section 113R11, they fill out their filenames like so: Team 1 Kimberly Taylor – Filename: [113R11Be1] John Mason – Filename: [113R11Be1] Team 2 Thomas Williams – Filename: [113R11Be2] David Clarke – Filename: [113R11Be2] Team 3 Kelly Martin – Filename: [113R11Be3] Jennifer Pearce – Filename: [113R11Be3] Next, the instructor tells them how to fill out their “Team Assignment Sheet” that will be submitted with all of their work for the rest of the semester. The first thing that they do is look on the board to find out what “Lecture Section” they are in. This information is integral in the grading process. According to the following chart, they determine whether or not they are in section A, B, C, D, or E. The names used in this tutorial were randomly generated using a function available in the program Scrivener for Mac. They do not represent any current or past students of the university. Any resemblance to a current or past name is purely coincidental. Updated – August 29, 2011 by M.

It’s so early that she knows that there will be no time to stop by the Dunkin Donuts for her morning coffee on the way in to class. She IS excited however to have Dr. Briggs as an instructor! She looks at the table again and notes that she is in section C. The other students around the table look at their schedule and find their section numbers as well and note them. In the end, all of their data together looks like the following: Team 1 Kimberly Taylor – Filename: [113R11Be1] – Lecture Section: A John Mason – Filename: [113R11Be1] – Lecture Section: A Team 2 Thomas Williams – Filename: [113R11Be2] – Lecture Section: E David Clarke – Filename: [113R11Be2] – Lecture Section: D Team 3 Kelly Martin – Filename: [113R11Be3] – Lecture Section: B Jennifer Pearce – Filename: [113R11Be3] – Lecture Section: C The students are relieved at this point to get this seemingly organizational nightmare out of the way. They then notice on the center of their table a colored sheet titled, “Team Assignment Sheet” and begin to fill it out. They choose a person at the table that has the best hand writing to fill out the form (in this case someone with perfect typewriter handwriting). Then the chosen scribe notes their section number, their table letter(s), their instructor name(s), names (in the teams that they decided), their filename that they created, and lastly their section letter. Once complete, the sheet looks like the following: The names used in this tutorial were randomly generated using a function available in the program Scrivener for Mac.

Once they understand their activity they take out their activity sheets and see a place to enter their information. They first sit back with their partner and discuss who will complete the electronic version (EV) of their assignment this week and who will complete the paper version (PV). Since an electronic version AND a paper version must be submitted each week they decide who completes the paper copy this week and will switch with their partners the following week. This week, Kimberly Taylor decides to do the paper copy, while John Mason decides to do the electronic version. Both versions are identical but credit is given to the group for submitting both. Also, since the student alternate each week, this gives both Kimberly and John the opportunity to learn the technology. Since Kimberly is completing the paper copy, she fills out her form like so (sections illustrated in red are required for correct completion of the header): Next, John knows that he will be completing the electronic version of the assignment, so he opens up the assignment on the computer provided to him and fills out his header section as follows: Since Kimberly is completing the paper copy she puts her name first and John’s name second. She then circles that John will be doing the EV for that week. John then fills out his name first on the computer and puts Kimberly’s second while indicating that she is doing the PV for that week.

A few weeks into the semester all of the students are enjoying their work and have been diligent in filling out their assignment headers. One week a member of group 3 (Kelly Martin) fell ill and couldn’t participate in that weeks recitation. She is marked as an unexcused absence but since is a stellar student will bring in a doctors note detailing her absence (a simple note from the doctor stating that she was sick on that day suffices). This leaves the other member of group 3, Jennifer Pearce, alone. Since no one is allowed to work alone in recitation, she looks to join one of the other two groups. She knows that Kimberly and John seem to be a witty and fun group and decides to politely ask them if she can join. They oblige. This week it’s John’s turn to hand in the electronic version, so he fills out the header version careful to include Jennifer Pearce on the form. His online header looks like this: Kimberly is doing the paper version and fills out her header: Jennifer decides to do the paper version which was indicated in Kimberly and John’s form. She could have chosen to do an electronic version instead and had she done so, she would have circled EV and would have uploaded her copy to blackboard using her own asurite account. Since she choose to do the paper version, her header looks like this (please note the she fills in her correct team number and preserves the team number of Kimberly and John): The names used in this tutorial were randomly generated using a function available in the program Scrivener for Mac.

The screen just will not turn on for them! They ask their instructor(s) for help, but to no avail! Though they’re sad about this new development, they decide that they have to continue with class. They make some light humor about technology, asu, and tuition dollars. Since their computer doesn’t work and each still have to hand something in, they both decide to do paper copies for that week. They politely get their instructor’s attention and explain what’s going on. Their instructor then marks on both of their paper copies that there was computer trouble and initials it. Kimberly’s header looks like this: All of the students had a great time that year in their recitation section! They learned a lot and recommended to their friends that were in other majors to take chemistry 113 as their lab science course. There were other minor issues that came up with how to fill out header sections but they were random and didn’t hinder the students at all. Any problems were addressed with the instructor and everyone passed with exceptional grades!
