Assignment Preparation and Submission Instructions

PSYC 2131: Introduction to Childhood and Adolescence has four assignments. Each assignment is divided into various parts, which include questions assessing your understanding of your course text material, responses to exploratory activities you are asked to complete, and discussion postings.

Preparing Your Assignments

The following suggestions will help you to prepare your course assignments successfully. Read them carefully before you begin:

Refer to the Suggested Schedule for direction as to when to submit each assignment. While you are free to work through the course at your own pace, you will learn more effectively and increase your likelihood of success if you spread the work out evenly throughout the duration of the course.
Note: If your goal is to complete the course in 16 weeks, you should meet the timetable set out in the Suggested Schedule.

Read all assignment directions and questions before you begin preparing your answers.
Multiple questions can be answered by including the question number and the letter of your selected answer, e.g., 1. A; 2. B.; etc.
Ensure that you develop your answers to the written questions using your own words. Do not provide answers that include information copied directly from your course material. While it can be a difficult process, writing answers that express concepts and issues in your own words has direct learning benefits: this strategy will ensure that you understand the course material at a deep level, and it will increase the likelihood that you will remember the information.
Be sure that your assignments are clearly written and that the material is organized in a logical fashion, using correct sentence and paragraph structure. Be sure to double space your lines and include your name and the assignment number at the top of the first page.
Proofread your final copy. Although electronic spell checkers will find most errors, they are not foolproof and can, at times, mislead you. It is still necessary to proofread your work to catch certain types of mistakes and grammatical errors. By correcting your grammar and spelling errors, you can polish your assignments and bring clarity to your ideas.
Criteria for Grading Assignments

Your written course work, including the module activities, should be independently developed and reflect your best efforts. The grade that is assigned to your assignment work is based on evidence that you have:

Addressed the questions or assignment posed.
Developed responses that are clear and well-reasoned.
Demonstrated clear understanding and application of the course material.
Met university-level expectations for written communication, including logical organization and correct sentence structure, grammar, and spelling. Students can contact the TRU Writing Centre for help with written work at
Please refer also to any additional criteria that may be included in the individual assignments.

Sending Your Assignment to Your Open Learning Faculty Member

As soon as you have completed an assignment, save your document on your computer and then send a copy to your Open Learning Faculty Member for marking. Follow the instructions in the “Assignments” section of your course.

See “How to Submit an Assignment Using Assignment Tool” in the “Assignments” section of your course.

Be sure to include your name, the course code, assignment number, and the date of submission on the title page of your assignments, so they can be easily identified, and you get credit for all your work. Use headers in the body of your written assignments to make sure all components of your assignments are clearly identified (course code, your surname, assignment number, date [day, month, year]).

Name your assignment file as follows: course number_your surname_assignment number_date. For example, if your name is Jan Martin and you are submitting Assignment 2, name your file: PSYC2131_Martin_Assignment2_14June2015.

Note: Always keep a copy of each assignment you submit so that you have a copy to refer to in the event of a telephone or email conference with your Open Learning Faculty Member. In addition, many student writing manuals recommend that students keep copies of early drafts of their work to protect them against potential charges of plagiarism.

As soon as you have submitted your assignment, and while waiting for your Open Learning Faculty Member to return it, begin the next module.

When your marked assignment is returned, review your Open Learning Faculty Member’s comments and queries. Take the time to carefully go over the marked assignment. If necessary, reread sections of the textbook or unit commentary that gave you trouble. What lessons can you apply to your next assignment? Contact your Open Learning Faculty Member by phone if you have any questions or problems.

Your Open Learning Faculty Member is responsible for the grade you receive on an assignment. If you disagree with a mark, discuss it with her/him right away. Also, he/she alone decides whether you may or may not rewrite and assignment. You should know, however, that it is not customary to allow revisions of already graded work unless you make a formal appeal. This is why telephone contact with your Open Learning Faculty Member before an assignment submission is important, particularly if you are having difficulty.
