17 E-Assign Homework Submission
Submit files onto E-assign BEFORE your recitation section on due date; upload only ONE file at a time Double check that your file was submitted correctly by going back and re- downloading the file you just submitted (ALWAYS DO THIS!) If you are getting a submission error, try to upload the file again later Acceptable Browsers to submit homework on: Internet Explorer Mozilla Chrome May submit same homework multiple times on E-assign BUT: Only the most recently uploaded and on-time file is graded

18 E-Assign New homework submission system, so give yourself time to submit. If technical difficulty arises, you will have time to fix it. Worst case scenario: Notify me BEFORE LAB ( me) that you cannot submit your homework file on time Also send me a screen shot of the submission error on E-Assign you are having This is the only exception for homework submission I will allow
