Comprehensive Assessment Tracking System

Verify student completion of in-class examples (Excel Spreadsheets)

Friday, September 4, 2015 to Thursday, December 3, 2015

In prior semesters, I would verify that students completed the example spreadsheet exercises in ACC111 by visual walking around the room.  With 32 students, this is almost impossible to complete efficiently.  As of Fall 2015, I have added the example spreadsheet exercises to the Attendance/Participation Assignment.  Student now complete the exercise and submit for credit.  Satisfies the attendance and insures participation.  I am able to assess that students can perform the necessary Excel functions that will be needed for homework and chapter quizzes.  Students needing additional help are assisted immediately before moving forward.  A sample spreadsheet is attached for your perusal.

Would like to see a copy of "example spreadsheet." But I like the inherent Excel reality check for the students, especially coupled with remediation for those who don't get it. BTW, since this system is already working, I consider the loop being closed on this.Well done!

I think this is a great way for students to acknoweldge areas where they need additional study time.  This method brings to light the topics the students need futher understanding.

Happy to share.  There are 15 spreadsheets for ACC111.  I have attached one as a sample.
