Assignment for Lake Sample
Indicate below the level of collaboration that you believe is appropriate as students complete this assignment. (Note: “Collaboration” relates to student-to-student contact and does not include students asking questions of the professor or lab manager). When you click on your answer you will see how many (and what percent) of Elon University faculty members agreed with your choice. Regardless of the answers in this scenario, if your professor assigns you a collaborative project you should check with him or her to ask questions about what is and is not appropriate collaboration on your assignment.
