This module will show you how to plan out the time you need to complete your assignments. If a task seems too difficult or you don’t know where to start, breaking it into smaller tasks can help make it easier to do. An assignment tracker is a document that you can use to break big assignments into smaller, more manageable steps.
Watch this video to learn why it’s useful to break tasks into smaller pieces.
Use the chart below to calculate how long you should spend on an assignment. For every 5% the assignment is worth, you should plan to work 2 hours.
|5% = 2 hours||25% = 10 hours|
|10% = 4 hours||30% = 12 hours|
|15% = 6 hours||35% = 14 hours|
|20% = 8 hours||40% = 16 hours|
