# Step 1: AssessStep 1: Assess

Now it’s time for each partner to evaluate each task. Each partner must individually complete the two tasks below to proceed.

For each task, each partner will need to make two judgments.
First, select your name from the dropdown below.
Approximate how many hours this takes a week to get done - for both you and your partner combined.
Estimate the split in labour between you and your partner from 0-100, with 0 meaning “
Emily
does it all” and 100 meaning “
Alisha
does it all” and 50 meaning equal split.
You’ll notice that the “Your Hrs/week” column calculates how many hours based on your estimated hours/week and the split of the work. Use this to double check your guesswork.
