Written Assignment Format

            We are trying to standardize student assignments in terms of appearance. Each student writing assignment should be formatted to 12-point Times New Roman at 26 lines per page. The following diagram shows how to change the line spacing in the Japanese version of MS Word. All of the university laptops come loaded with this program, so this should be easy for you to show to your students. This will be particularly important to show to freshmen in the Spring semester. An explanation of this can be found on page 70 of the students’ IE Core and Writing booklet.

In addition, the students must put a page number and the title of the writing assignment in the upper right corner of the document. They need to put their name and student number on the first page.
