Syllabus for Micro Word Processing
Instead of using a textbook for this course, you will use online tutorials and exercises. Mr. Gordon has given you links to online tutorials on the Links page of this syllabus. He has also given you practice exercises on the same site where you can view this syllabus.
Mr. Gordon will base your class grade on these factors:
Letter grades and their percentage equivalents are in the table below.
The Final Exam will be taken at about 3 PM in last class meeting, and will take about an hour. The rest of the final class time will be devoted to required class work.
The final exam questions will be based on
You have three grade choices: (1) Letter, (2) Pass/Fail, or (3) Audit. For the first two options, your grade makes you eligible for one credit. No credit will be granted for Audit. To earn a Pass grade, you must earn at least a 70% average. To be eligible for the Audit grade, you must have registered as an auditing student.
Students are expected to arrive in class in time and remain for the entire class session. Students missing more than two hours of class time will not be eligible to receive credit for the course even if they have a legitimate excuse for their absence. Missing more than two hours will automatically disqualify you from the possibility of receiving credit for the course.
By the end of this course, students using Word 2003 will be able to create and format --
Mr. Gordon will expect you to be able to perform these tasks with Word 2003. In a fourteen hour course, working with students with varying abilities and computer experience, Mr. Gordon will probably not be able to cover all these objectives. He will reserve many of these objectives for only those advanced students who come into the class already knowing the fundamentals of Word. To distinguish these optional objectives from the essential objectives, Mr. Gordon has starred* and italicized the optional objectives.
