Williams, Julie Ann Stuart; Reid, Randall C.
Journal of Education for Business, v85 n6 p323-329 2010
The authors describe how to structure a memo format for homework assignments in which a manager requests analysis of a particular issue from the student. The student must respond with a memo stating a recommendation and describing the solution approach. The results from using the memo format include improved student performance and professional writing on word-problem assignments.
