Completing Homework Assignments

Unless otherwise stated, all homework questions require a 2-part answer.


  1. 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Do not cite definitions, appendices, tables, etc.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Do not cite page numbers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.


  1. 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Do not cite an entire paragraph with multiple sections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.


  1. Do NOT quote standards text word for word as the answer to a question.


  1. Home work may be typed or handwritten. If handwritten, must be legible and easily readable (by the instructor!).


  1. If not using the formatted question sheet, be sure to include the question with your answer.
