Teaching Tip: Providing Standards for Assignments

Provide clear and reasonable standards for completion when you give assignments to your students. This will help to minimize the tendency of students to spend too much time on one assignment, leaving insufficient time for their other assignments. Providing reasonable standards will be especially helpful to students who are perfectionists. These students tend to work on an assignment well beyond the point where their work is good enough.
