General Instruction for Written Assignments
Your written assignment is intended to test your understanding of important concepts and discover how to sharpen your intellectual skills of analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and application. The intent of the written assignment is to provide an opportunity to more fully describe, explain, and analyze the books and other sources. When you submit your written assignment, you may want to submit it as an .RTF file attachment, as these usually retain your formatting.
Throughout this course, there are four main resources that you can rely on that will enable you to successfully complete written assignments:
- Empire State College’s Library and Research Resources – link here for the web-based on-line Library’s home page that can be reached any time of day or night.
