The page will be updated with each new assignment but the old ones will remain.

General Rules and Information

The marking period projects are "open ended".  You should never be saying "Ok, I'm done now so I am going to ...."fill that in whith your favorite non class activity.  I can only show you some of what you need to know, so much more rests in your searching, finding and trying information about the programs.  The "A" student wil be the student who seeks to learn more than the basics that I show you in class.

DO NOT PLAY GAMES IN CLASS during work time, you may loose 1 grade point each time your are found off task, based on your lack of class participation

All assignments should be handed in ON TIME. Assignments handed in on time may be reasubmitted to improve the grade (restrictions applyby assignment). Late assignments will be graded at least a 1/2 grade lower. All make up or resubmissions of work must be handed in by one week before the end of the cycle to get credit. Work submitted after that date will only be considered to avoid failure that results in loss of credit.  

Grades will be based on class participation, self advancement, and mastery of skills as demonstrated by

  • practical tests
  • individual and group projects
  • On line quizes and tests
  • homework
  • timely completion of work
A practical test is one in which one is required to do the skills, not answer questions about doing the skills. For example, You might be used to a test question asking "how do you create a drop cap in Appleworks?". In a practical test the assignment will be, "Change the first letterof this report to be a drop cap."

E-mail and the internet may be used during the last five minutes of class unless the teacher calls the class to order, presentations are being made, or your daily work is not complete.  Any other time, these internet uses should only be used directly related to class work.
