Completing Homework Assignments
Unless otherwise stated, all homework questions require a 2-part answer.
- Identify where you found the answer
Cite the specific standard number to the greatest detail possible
If State standard – 12-60-2(a)(1)
If Federal standard – 1910.68(c)(1)
Write the numbers and letters just as they are written in the standard – case
sensitive, use ( )’s, periods, dashes, correct numbers, etc.
Cite preceding/succeeding sections only if they apply to the same topic and are
needed to answer the question
Do not cite definitions, appendices, tables, etc. unless specifically requested
Do not cite page numbers
Check your answer by “backing up” and attempting to find the section again
using your answer.
- Give a short, complete answer to the question asked.
Give one answer – not multiple answers hoping to cover all bases.
The answer should be best one for the situation described in the question.
The answer needs to be specific – no “shotgunning”
Do not cite an entire paragraph with multiple sections
If you do believe multiple sections are needed to answer the question, identify each
and describe how it applies to question
If there does not appear to be a correct answer, provide a brief explanation or
justification for the answer you give.
Don’t change the question to fit your answer.
- Do NOT quote standards text word for word as the answer to a question.
- Home work may be typed or handwritten. If handwritten, must be legible and easily readable (by the instructor!).
