You should use a colon (:) after assignment. I don't think 'significant' is the right word to use. 'Appropriate' would be a better choice. The last item in a list is normally preceded by 'and'.  The use of 'writing a paper or project' is confusing, since you usually don't write a project. If 'project' is a separate item in the list, replace 'or' with 'and' since you are specifying each assignment.

 

Estimate an appropriate time frame for each assignment: reading, studying, and writing a paper or project.
