Homework Submission
• Get your homework assignment from
web
– Print from your browser to get hardcopy
– Work out the problems
• ask for help if needed
• see IEEE Mentoring Office
– No limit on number of attempts.
PSpice Assignments
• MicroSim PSpice 8.0 Eval to be used
– Problems are text version
– See Tutorial:
http://dave.uta.edu/dillon/pspice/
• Campus Students Submit Printouts
– Usually submit the “out” file
– Sometimes submit Probe file results
• Mastering
– M6 Correctly applied circuit laws to the
conditions of the problem and correctly
solved the ensuing equations. Work was
logical and orderly.
(100% - 95%)
– M5 Got mostly correct results, but work
could be better organized and documented.
Used an inefficient method or overlooked
an easier or simpler procedure.
(95% - 85%)

• Developing
– D4 Mostly used appropriate solution
or organizational errors.
(85% - 60%)
– D3 Properly used the fundamental circuit
laws, but missed one or more key concepts
in setting up the problem’s solution.
(60% - 40%)

• Emerging
– E2 An earnest attempt made, but lacked
proper use of KVL, KCL, Ohm’s Law or
the Passive Sign Convention at significant
stages of the problem.
(40% to 20%)
– E1 Did not make significant progress on
the problem.
(20% - 0%)
