When writing an assignment, do not use "I" phrases, such as "I liked....", "I didn't understand...", or "I found..." etc. • You understand that this is a research paper and not a paper in which you give your opinions. You need to conduct deep research to learn what others have said about the Zachman Framework. The majority content of your paper should include citations to sources, because you are presenting the research you conducted on the experts' views of the Zachman Framework. • You understand instructors use grading rubrics for grading assignments. • You recognize completing and submitting assignments on time is your responsibility, and asking for an extension is an exception. Your instructor has documented in My Expectations the guidelines used for granting extensions, including an incomplete grading agreement. • You understand and use APA format and style guidelines for completing assignments at a level where you satisfactorily follow APA guidelines on your own – without an instructor correcting the same errors from assignment to assignment.
