Best practices for following written instructions

How to express what content of the course you know:
Often, students may know information which is required by the coursework, but the inability to follow the directions established by the course whether related to deadlines or assignment details may prohibit the instructor from being able to see the students’ proficiency in the coursework.
Following guidelines will help you ensure that you are able to communicate your knowledge in the most effective manner possible.
  • Detail the requirements of each assignment. Consider putting each academic assignment into a Word document and using the tools word offers:
  • Highlight all aspects of the assignment; identify in comment boxes areas about which you have questions, and ask the professor for clarification on those topics;
  • Make a list of the steps follow to complete the assignments successfully, using the most effective strategies you know work for you.
  • Familiarize yourself with and adhere to the individual instructor’s expectations.
