    Submitting Your Paper

    Submit your paper electronically to your Research Advisor by the due date.  Late papers will be penalized according to the usual late policy.  Requests for incomplete grades will be considered only in the most extreme extenuating circumstances.

    Your Research Advisor will evaluate the paper and give you feedback on it. You will receive your final course grade through the MyENC portal in the usual way.

    Please note that your final grade for the course will not necessarily be the same grade you receive on your paper.  The course grade will take the learning process into consideration as well.  While the exact criteria will be up to your Research Advisor, you may be graded on things like how well prepared you were for conferences, whether you met deadlines for interim assignments, the quality of your progress reports or interactions with the Research Advisor.  All of these things help to illustrate what and how much you learned throughout this course.  While the final product (the paper) is important, it is not the only thing that matters.
