3 Common Assignments Students Face in Online Classes

Taking an online class can be a difficult experience for students who don’t know what they’re getting into. There is a reputation about online classes that they are easy and don’t require much work, but that’s not true. There are a lot of tough assignments students face and some they are not familiar with if they have not taken an online class before.

Here are just a few online assignments.

Online Discussion:

Your instructor chooses a topic related to the class and asks students to discuss it in detail. He/she also gives a list of instructions, including the due date, citation rules, word limit, etc. Students should contribute to the discussion with unique and properly referenced comments in their own words. Forum discussions test your understanding of the class and encourage you to put forward different opinions. The instructor reviews all the comments and corrects mistakes. Contributing to the discussion is easier said than done, especially for international students who do not speak English as their first language. Rather than risking their grades, these students end up hiring a class taker online. They call us and ask, ‘Can I pay someone to take my online class?’

Tests and Exams:

Most online programs include periodic tests – usually at the end of every chapter to assess your understanding. They also include a final exam that covers overall syllabus. These are multiple choice questions and short answer questions. Unlike tests in regular classes, students can take the test in the comfort of their own home. Sometimes, though, there will be an online proctor who will watch the student via webcam. Open book or not, these tests aren’t as simple and straightforward as they seem. Because grades are so important and students don’t want to lose points, many call us and ask, ‘Can you take my online class for me?’

Reading/Writing Assignments:

Students are assigned reading and writing assignments every week. They have to read the instructed chapters and watch/listen to a specific lecture. Assignments are relevant to the topic and feedback is given by the professor after the assignment is submitted. It is important to stay on top of your reading so that you don’t fall behind in the class. The more you study, the better you’ll do. If you do fall behind and need help, consider calling us to ask, ‘Can you take my online class?
