Feb. 19, 2003. Realizing that there is relationship between the "Quality"
of my course and the "Quantity" (Number) of students who can take it, I am
"kicking my course up a couple of notches" by creating this Interactive
DataBase that every student can write to and read from, extending
"Learning Community" to "Virtual Learning Community"! So, refer to
GRADE.DOC and the chronological list of assignments, after you finish a
project, you must post "How you did it." to this site. What tips,
techniques, short-cuts, and importantly, what you learned to share with
classmates! Likewise, students may read "Tips and Techniques" for doing a
project, prior to or while doing the project! This is Quality, this is
Communication, and Virtual Learning! Take from the Data Base what you need,
and Add to its knowledge where you can, with your name recorded for
the future! Make your answers Quality. JA. Out.
Parts / all of this class is Online. Grading is based on
points earned for work completed, posted on Atten/Partic Form, and
verified by Instructor. Points (or "Scoreboard") is your personal contract
for a grade. "derules.htm" explains (3) ways to earn points. Name
the 3 ways to earn points. Can you name another?
This is one of the pieces that helped shift
the class paradigm from Text to Visual-based Communications! This is a classic
work. Understand it thoroughly. Write a short comment for each one, and "I
agree or I disagree". Can you add any more Principles? What do you think of
These 17 Principles, based on
Dr. Deming's "14 Points for Management" were developed when Jim McCracken
and I were teaching TQM, SPC, and Problem-Solving. They will
help you to function in a High-Quality, High-Performance environment.
Simply, write "I like this / I agree or I don't like this, I disagree" under
each Principle. The Goal here is for you to have Mastery of TQM. This
assignment just has to be read, understookd, and commented on. Can you add
anything to these Principles? Do you have a comment on them?
Click Microsoft Office, click
"Word". The clue for this lesson is to type in the text and make it
look like the handout. Same spacing, same font, same images. Only
press <Enter> at the end of a paragraph. Read the tips of your classmates.
Fill in all blanks.
Note the words on the label:
"701start" and "start". Navigate your way to
"Accessories", click "Command Prompt", type A:\
followed by the <Enter> key (putting you in the A:\ drive).
Then type "701start" which starts the program, and the Password is
"start". Unless you are told to repeat the lesson, you passed for 25
points per lesson. You may enter the point on the A/P form like this --
25micro-01 + 25micro-02. I have a program (grade) that will verify your
passing. Ask me. Learn how to run the "Grade" program.
