Electronic Assignments - Spring 2014

Notes of Import
- I have checked and re-checked the Assignment Submission Page and it is working correctly - when it does, it is real cool. When the ASP is working you can simply "punch it up" complete the information as necessary and "click to submit"

- if there is ever a problem with the ASP - all assignments may simply be "wired" [emailed] to me at

peter_larue@georgetowncollege.edu

- the extent to which you answer each/any of the questions in the e-assignments - will be reflected in your point tally
