I believe this is wrong started this petition to CSULB President and

Mandatory online homework goes against all of CSULB's values as follows:

  • "Teaching and learning at the center of who we are."

Online homework is not an adequate method of learning. Those who attempt to solve a problem are usually punished after a certain number of attempts and their grade suffers because of this. Those who struggle in these concepts are not given the chance to redeem themselves, putting enormous pressure on the student to get the correct answer rather than to embrace the learning process of making mistakes and trying again. Is this truly a method of teaching and learning?

  • "The public good is our responsibility."

Online homework, when mandatory, forces the student to pay money for the OPPORTUNITY of getting a good grade. This limits those that simply cannot afford to do so greatly. Does this embrace the value of public good?

  • "Diversity is our strength."

Those that struggle to learn are punished in their grade performance and not when being tested, but through the process of learning. Mandatory online homework therefore excludes them as well as excludes those that struggle to afford the mandatory requirement. Is this diversity in action?

  • "Compassion, creativity, and innovation characterize our work."

Creativity is frowned upon by the online software, oftentimes punishing those that have entered an answer that is deemed correct but does not match the answer to the software. Innovation is punished with this cookie cutter method of learning and teaching. Compassion is disregarded when those that cannot afford or those that struggle to understand are punished.

By signing this petition, I call upon the head office of CSULB to remove any and all online homework mandatory requirements from all classes regardless of major as I do not believe it aligns with our core values.
