surely the person giving you the assignment would be more than able to point you in the right direction.

I'd like to know what kind of assignment you're talking about as well. In standard motherboards, removing the CMOS battery will clear the CMOS. In modern and old computers CMOS is only kept alive with a single battery. You're either talking about some next-gen motherboard, or you did it wrong. But there is another way to clear CMOS, keep looking.
