Impact Hours Log

Track Your Weekly Impact Hours

This online form is how we track whether or not you have fulfilled the IMPACT hours that we have agreed upon. This form will not accept your hourly commitment sign-off without the reflection. Please be honest about whether or not you have completed your hours. The only one that will lose by being dishonest is you.

The total reflection is to be 200 - 300 words (½ – 1½ pages, double-spaced).

This weekly web-log must be submitted each Wednesday at 1 PM. The form will only allow one submission per user, per week and places a time-stamp on each submission to inform us as to whether or not it was submitted on time. Late assignments will not be accepted.

IMPACT marks are directly tied to your weekly reflection on the question of the week. Every week you will think about and write about that week’s question and hand in your reflection. These questions will vary in topic and tone, but they are all geared to helping you look at your placement from different perspectives. Sprinkled into the weeks will be a space for basic reflection/venting/questioning, etc. This form will not accept your hourly commitment sign-off without the reflection. The total reflection should fall between 200 - 300 words (roughly a half-page to a page). Late assignments will not be accepted.
