MyEconLab (MEL) Assignments
1% for each of the top 10 quizzes
• There are a total of 13 MELs. Only the top 10 will count. Assignments will be completed on-line using MEL software.
• Sometimes MELs will cover material before the lecture covers the material. Preparation should make lectures more fruitful.
• Each assignment MUST be completed by its due date. Due dates are indicated in MEL (during the term) and on the table in this outline.
• You are allowed unlimited attempts per assignment and your grade is the highest of your attempts. Thus, you should try to get perfect on these assignments to be adequately prepared for exams.
• All assignments are to be done individually. Please allow 24 hours for servicing of technical difficulties. Contact Pearson with any technical problems. We have a Pearson ambassador who can be your first point of contact with Pearson for enrolment purposes and the TA will help with the MEL assignments. See Courselink for contact information.
• Any Economics questions about MEL should be sent to the TA whose contact information can be found in Courselink
• If you get 10 assignments perfect then we will shift 2% of the weight from the final to MEL and your grade will be 12/12 on MEL and the final will be worth a maximum of 44%. This will not show in Courselink but will happen when we calculate final grades.
• Refer to CourseLink for instructions about using MEL.
