Overview of Project 6

This is the post for the November 20, 2014 class meeting.

For your last work before Thanksgiving break, you will read through the assignment for the final exam and post any questions you have. There is no required forum work for the session. Have a great, safe holiday.

Class Work for November 20

These are the tasks to complete for today’s work:

  • Review the assignment for Project 6 (the final exam).
  • Post any questions you have about the assignment.
  • Consider replying to optional discussion questions.
  • Have a great Thanksgiving break.

Getting Started on Project 6

For Project 6, you will review your work in the course and write a completion report that outlines what you have learned and done during the term. In particular, you will review your posts on the Forums and point out some of your best work. In addition to grading your report, I’ll use the information you present to help determine your participation grade for the course. In the workplace, you could think of this report as a self-evaluation for a performance review.

Here’s what you need to do to get started:

  1. Read the assignment for Project 6 completely. Begin gathering data on your forum work, explained in Step 2 of the assignment.

  2. If you have any questions (today or in the future) about the assignments, post in Questions about Project 6 topic if you have questions about the report.

Optional Forum Posts

As you review your goals and the work you’ve completed for the Forum Posts and Participation portion of your grade, you may find that you want to make some additional posts. I have added an Optional Discussion Questions forum where you will find questions that touch on topics we have considered during the term and general issues related to technical communication. Add replies there as you wish to better the Forum Posts and Participation portion of your grade. You may be too far behind to argue that you completed your work in a timely manner, but you can still increase the quantity of posts. Your responses should be posted by December 2.
