Assessment: Using E-mail Netiquette

Read the email below, written by a student to an instructor, and respond to the questions that follow.  This website explaining “Netiquette” will be a useful resource.


What’s up, Professor!

I am in your class and haven’t logged into Blackboard in a while because I was busy. Did I miss anything important? Can u send me a list of assignments I missed RIGHT AWAY so I can work on them?

BTW, here is the assignment from the first week of class, you will accept it for full credit even though it is a few weeks late, right? :-) !!



  1. What rules of netiquette does the student violate in this email?
  2. If you were the instructor, how might you react to this email? What questions would you have about it?
  3. Rewrite the e-mail so that it is consistent with good netiquette.
