Q. Making Sense of Your Assignment


The first step in completing any assignment is understanding the assignment. Assignments are typically provided using assignment sheets, a syllabus, or online course content, but they may also be given verbally by the professor. There are three main steps in understanding an assignment: 1) Understanding the basics of the assignment, 2) understanding the purpose of the assignment, and 3) understanding the audience. -- taken from "Understanding Your Assignment"



  1. Attention to Audience
  2. The Communication Triangle
  3. Understanding Your Assignment
