Please use these procedures to turn in the assignments to me for grading.
First, take special care to look over the grading and due diligence policies for assignments before you turn in an assignment. Take special note of the firm on-time policy and the requirements for content, operation, syntax, and readability.
Your assignment is due by the time listed on the syllabus.
When you are all set, send your assignment in plain text (not as an attachment--make absolutely certain that you send the assignment in plain text--do NOT use Microsoft Word or any other word processor to prepare any of your assignments for this course or your assignments will more than likely be messed up. Do NOT use a file attachment. Use the Web-based mail program itself to prepare your assignment, save a draft, and then finally mail it when it is ready.) Email your assignment to your instructor at this email address
firstname.lastname@example.org a subject line as follows.
Please use the exact subject line as shown above. This is because I filter my electronic mail. My email reading software (Pegasus Mail) sorts incoming messages with these subject lines into a "Class" folder. Email without correct subject line will go into a general folder called "Unsorted" where I may not see it. Further, I check for "@uwm.edu" in the sender's email address; If "uwm.edu" is not in the sender's address, I will ignore the email.
In general, I check my mail very frequently, every couple of hours during a typical day. When assignments are due and close to the deadline, I check my email more frequently.
Be sure to check your email for a receipt before the deadline to verify that your assignment got through. You must get this receipt before you consider the assignment done-- "It's not complete until you get your receipt!"
Send another email if you have sent your assignment and you do not get a receipt within a reasonable period of time before the deadline. I will grade the assignment I receive from you with the earliest time stamp.
