The submission portal is now open on Crocodoc. As always, you are encouraged. Remember, too, that your paper is due before the start of class on Thursday, March 7th, before the class starts. There are no exceptions to this. Know that Crocodoc records submission times.
Another reminder, the late policy is as follows: For every day it is late, your grade drops one letter and more than two days late won’t receive credit, not even partial. Class meetings do not count as days, days count as days.
To find the submission portal, follow this link (also pasted at the bottom of the page). Submitting early will not reflect more favorably on your overall grade, but by doing so you eliminate the risk of submitting at the last minute, encountering a submission problem, and having your paper considered late.
If you encounter a problem, please let me know right away. But know too that I receive an overwhelming number of emails as we close in on final submission time. Be proactive. See what you can figure out yourself. Do not email with problems at the last minute because, contrary to popular belief, I do not stay up all night responding to frantic student emails the night before final papers are due.
You will submit your peer conferencing sheet to me in addition to any drafts or other composing materials you have. You can submit these electronically along with your final paper, but if you do this you should clarify which paper is your final one. Remember, failure to submit a complete, filled-in peer conferencing sheet will lower your final score one letter grade.
Also very important is that the materials you submit be submitted together. In other words, staple or at least paperclip your materials to ensure that they don’t get mixed up with someone else’s materials.
Finally, the rubrics for grading have been posted to our site. I encourage you to read through them as well as the evaluation criteria outlined on the handout.
