Instructions for Submitting Assignments and Reports

Fall 2008


The exact format for submitting assignments may vary depending on the assignment. It will be up to the student to decide which of the allowable formats to use. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the format has been properly applied. The instructor is not responsible for troubleshooting formats (e.g., those that might result from incompatible computer documents).

The only allowable formats may include either of the following: (1) "hard" paper copies; or (2) computer-generated digital copies (Microsoft Word documents or pdf files only) as email attachments. When sending assignments via email, send them only as email attachments. Do not include an assignment in the body of an email message (I won't accept it!). Also, if submitting assignments as email attachments, do not separate a single assignment into separate attachments requiring me to assemble them together. Each digitally-submitted assignment must be sent as a single document.

All assignments should include the student's name on the first page of the submission. Digital formats should include the student's last name and lab assignment number in the assignment file name (e.g., smithlab1.doc).


In general, assignments will be considered received on time if any of the following conditions apply:

  1. The received assignment was placed in my WCC mailbox before 5:00 p.m. on the due date.
  2. The received assignment was handed to me in person before 5:00 p.m. on the due date.
  3. The received assignment was sent to me via email before 5:00 p.m. on the due date (this means that I must have the email message with the assignment in my UH email mailbox or BIOL 100L Laulima mailbox before 5:00 p.m. on the due date).
  4. The received assignment was sent through the US postal system and was postmarked before 5:00 p.m. on the due date.

Assignments not received on time by any of these criteria will be considered late or missing (see below).

I am not responsible for any assignments not received. You should maintain extra copies of your submitted assignments in case problems occur (e.g., Internet crashes prevent email transmissions, losses in the US postal system, losses from my WCC mailbox).

A list of the assignments and their due dates may be found by clicking "Assignments".


An assignment will be considered late if it was not received on time, but was received within one week of the due date. Late assignments will be assessed a point penalty equal to 15% of total possible points for the assignment. Thus a late 20 point assignment will be penalized with an automatic subtraction of 3 points from the point total.

Assignments received more than one week after the due date (or not received at all) will NOT be accepted for scoring and the student will receive a score of "0" for that assignment.
