Value of the assignments

The students were asked to indicate if the assignments associated with each subject area fell into the following categories:
  1. Added depth and breadth to the course
  2. Contributed to a fuller understanding of the topics
  3. Made subjects more relevant
  4. Largely busywork and added little beyond the readings
It is gratifying to see that effort expended in working with the subject material enhanced the students' understanding of what they were involved in learning. However, one is reminded that some individuals do not admit (or, perhaps, comprehend) that working in the subject areas adds educational value above that gained by reading chapters in a textbook.
