De Anza College Accounting 1C

Homework Assignments, Quizzes, Tasks, etc.

and Due Dates

The schedule below is tentative and will be updated during the quarter.

LAST UPDATED 11/11/18

 

 

General Chapter Overview

Required for each

chapter:

Recommended for each chapter:

Read the Chapter

Review Publisher’s Powerpoints (found on Canvas)

Review any Canvas pencasts or videos that were created by the instructor

Review Publisher’s Study Tools on Cengage.  Work the OPTIONAL assignments such as the Chapter Study Plans

Do Cengage homework by the due date

 

 

 

In addition to Chapter items above there will also be quizzes, midterms, projects, forum discussions etc.

 

This page lists tasks from all sources: CengageNOW, Canvas, manual, etc. in order by due date. Be sure to verify the location where the task is to be done. (For instance some quizzes may be done on Canvas, and other quizzes may be done on Cengage.)  All tasks, quizzes, online midterm, and on-campus end-of-quarter comprehensive midterm will be shown on this page and also on the course Schedule/Calendar.  Keep in mind that these will be updated throughout the quarter.

 

CengageNOW Homework due dates mean that you cannot enter any data after the cutoff hour.  You will be able to view your work, but not change it.  The CUTOFF HOUR is usually 11:55pm.  Get your homework done well before the due date so you won’t have to worry about computer problems.  There are no exceptions for late homework caused by last minute computer problems.

 

(A variety of OPTIONAL assignments have also been placed on Cengage.  There is an optional (not for credit) assignment to help get started in the course.  It is named: “OPTIONAL Getting Started.  Work this assignment if you want more information about how to effectively use Cengage to study Accounting. In addition, each chapter contains an optional “Adaptive Study Plan” assignment. For instance, the assignment for our first chapter is named “OPTIONAL Ch. 18 Study Plan”.  Work through these (if you want to) to help master the material in each chapter.  These Study Plans contain multiple choice quizzes that can help you prepare for the multiple choice questions on exams.  You can take the quiz and then press the “Submit Quiz” button (upper right of screen) to see the results.  However, DO NOT PRESS THE “SUBMIT ASSIGNMENT” BUTTON for the Study Plan itself.  You only have one chance or “take” for this assignment. If you submit the assignment itself, you will not be able to see it after you submit it.

 

MEMO: The Due Dates and Times that you see on CengageNOW are relative and not absolute.  They depend upon the time settings on your computer.  If your computer is not set to Pacific Time, you will see the wrong dates and times. ALL DUE DATES AND TIMES ARE SHOWN BELOW.  THIS IS THE AUTHORITATIVE SOURCE FOR THE CENGAGE DEADLINES.

 

You can submit your CengageNOW homework an unlimited amount of times.  It is recommended that you both save and submit your homework frequently to prevent data loss. (NOTE THAT THIS APPLIES ONLY TO HOMEWORK…NOT CENGAGE QUIZZES OR THE MIDTERM.)
