        GRADE

Project 1: Five-Page Proposal for Lakeview College–SHOW ME–5 points

  1. Creating the Header and Footer. What You Need To Know:
    1. How to insert a header with the document name & the current date
    2. How to insert a footer that includes your name at the left margin and the current page number at the right margin
    3. In a later project you will be modifying the header and footer—you will insert a cover page that contains no header and footer and a table of contents page that contains no header and a different style of page number in the footer. EXPERIMENT with this project to see if you can do this!!!
    4. Review the use of headers and footers to provide signpost information on each page of a multiple-page document. This information generally includes the title of the document, the author’s name, and the page number. Because of the time-sensitive nature of the proposal for Project 1, the current date is also included. For a lengthy document, it is helpful to use one of the formats that indicate the current page number as well as the total number of pages in the document, i.e. Page 2 of 24.
  2. Setting up the Document. What You Need To Know:
    1. You will select the Perspective style set and the Slipstream color scheme.
    2. Modify the Heading 1 and Heading 2 styles associated with the style set.
    3. Do you know why you first create the three pages of the proposal text (in the first three activities) and then create the table of contents page and the cover page (in the final activity of this project)?
  3. Creating a New Style. What You Need To Know:
    1. Before typing text for the proposal, starting on page 28 of the text, you will create a new style for the proposal text. All text formatted with the new style (called Proposal Text) will be indented .5″ with 1.5 spacing between lines and 12-point spacing between paragraphs.
  4. Entering Footnotes. What You Need To Know:
    1. In Step 7, on page 28 of the text, you will insert the first footnote required for the proposal.Footnotes are automatically renumbered when a specific footnote is removed.
    2. You need to know how to remove a footnote—by selecting the footnote number in the text, then pressing [Delete].
  5. Formatting Footnotes
    1. You will modify the style associated with the footnote text by first checking the formatting in the Reveal Formatting task pane.
    2. You need to know how to use the Style Inspector and Reveal Formatting task pane to determine what style is applied to text when the style is not shown in the Style gallery. EXPERIMENT!!
  6. Drawing the Rounded Rectangle
    1. In Step 8, on page 30 of the text, you are instructed to draw a rounded rectangle.
    2. You will select “No Fill” when they want to make a shape transparent.
    3. You use the mouse to adjust the size and position of the rounded rectangle so that it encloses the table as shown in Figure B-4, on page 31.
    4. The adjustment process can require some time.
  7. Creating the SmartArt Diagram
    1. On page 3 of the proposal text, you will insert a SmartArt Diverging Radial diagram that consists of one central circle and five perimeter circles. Experiment with some of the different ways you can display the SmartArt diagram (for example, by selecting other SmartArt styles from the SmartArt Styles group), before selecting the Inset SmartArt style and the Colorful – Accent Colors color scheme as directed in Step 5, on page 32 of the text.
  8. Generating the Table of Contents
    1. In Step 3, on page 34 of the text, you will generate a table of contents.
    2. The table of contents contains all the headings in the text that were formatted in a heading style.
    3. Note that heading styles must be used in a multiple-page document if a table of contents is required.
    4. The table of contents will be automatically updated if a section of the proposal is removed. In addition, the numbering of headings subsequent to the deleted section will be automatically updated.
  9. Modifying Page Numbering Styles
    1. Carefully follow the instructions in Steps 4 to 8, on page 34 of the text, and then check that an i appears on the table of contents page and a 1 appears on page 1 of the proposal text.
    2. This is typical: numbering preliminary materials, such as a table of contents page, an Executive Summary, etc., in lowercase Roman numerals and the text of a report or proposal in regular numerals.
    3. Do you know how to use the Link to Previous button?
    4. Deselect the Link to Previous button when you want to ensure that the contents of a header or a footer are not the same as the contents of the header or footer in the previous section.
  10. Creating the Cover Page
    1. In Step 9, on page 34 of the text, you will insert a Cover Pages using the Austin style, then enter text in content controls.
    2. Be sure you know the purpose of content controls and how to delete any content control you do not need.
    3. Be sure to view the other cover page styles available. Note that not all cover page styles use the same content controls.
  11. Finalizing the Proposal
    1. Make any spacing adjustments in Whole Page view to ensure that the proposal appears attractively formatted over five pages before printing it.

PR-D My Grades Analysis.xlsx

Create a course grades analysis for at least 15 students taking a course of your choice. Create this for a course you are currently taking. Use JMC to see the categories and weights assigned. SHOW THIS to the teacher of the course for EXTRA CREDIT. Take time to determine the appropriate names and percentages required for each of three grade categories. Grade categories could include Assignments, Quizzes, Exams, or other categories chosen by the you. Be sure to adapt the course grades analysis you created for Project 2. You might want to change the grade allocations in the lookup table to more closely match the allocations used in the courses you take. For example, an A might be assigned to a total of 86 or higher, and the A- and A+ grades might not be assigned.

Send the finished workbook to me as an attachment in an Edmodo note.

Illustrated below is a sample course grades analysis.
