An assignment (typically for school) that
is given for the sake of having an assignment.Bullshit
assignments relate to the course, but they
do not particularly advance your knowledge in said course. Since these assignments are not useful for actually learning, they
assignments. It is just a bunch
of busy work that
makes life more frustrating than it already is... Especially
since the assignment shouldn't exist
in the first place!
Some courses require essentially no homework. The teachers will begin to feel
as if they are doing a poor job because of this, and in effect, will create a totally
bullshit assignment in order to justify their
lack of assignments.
