As with many institutes, we do not grade assignments. The instructor will contact you to acknowledge receipt of your assignment. It will be judged 'satisfactory' or 'in progress'.  In the latter case, the instructor will discuss with you what needs to be done to bring it up to the 'satisfactory' level.

You may continue on to the next section whenever you are ready.  You do not have to wait to hear from your instructor.
