For 100 points credit,  100-AGRAM2,  read and perform each of these points, then click the SUBMIT BUTTON below:

Point #1 --  You have read A-GRAM1.HTML. Go back and read it if you have to.

Point #2 --  Always Put  CIS in the Subject Line of any email that you send me.  If you think you know why, email me the answer for 10 EC points.

Point #3 -- When this class was not as High-Performing, it used to be more fun.  But now, with students taking this course before going to USC and other top Universities, with students who are working full time with heavy responsibilities,  I am concentrating on "Taking Care of Business".  Please, you also do the same.

Point #4 -- Some of you have inappropriate email addresses -- No Sex, Drugs, RocknRoll, or Bombs in your email addresses please.  Why do I want you to have a Business-like email address?  10-EC points.

Point #5 -- By now, I hope you know about the famous "701Smoothie" Project -- Creating and Operating a Virtual Business.   701 students will learn about Excel and e-commerce;  757 students will create a business home page.   Click  http://auciello.tripod.com/701virtual.xls to access it.

Point #6 -- There are projects worth 100s of points easily available -- Here is the first one --

Reading from http://auciello.tripod.com/GRADE.DOC

1.      Distance Educ (all classes) Rules http://auciello.tripod.com/derules.htm  (50-DERULES)

2.    Principles of Visual Communications  http://auciello.tripod.com/pvc.doc  (50-PVC)  Important to understand.

3.   Principles of Total Quality Management http://auciello.tripod.com/14tqm.html    Defines the Operating Environment for our Classroom and the Workplace.  Important.

4.  Introduction to Quality, Total Quality Management, and Statistical Process Control  http://auciello.tripod.com/itqtqmspc.doc  (50-itq)  Read it, Sign it. Put in Viewbinder.

5.  Continue using GRADE.DOC to find Assignments.  757 Students use http://auciello.tripod.com/grade757.doc

6.  Read the Scrolling Banner Messages -- They are written for you.

7.  You must sign in to the A/P at least twice (2) / week. Or at any time, you have more points to record.  They must accumulate. 10EC if you email me and say what that means.

8.  On Page2, take Required Quiz #1 (100-all-01) http://auciello.tripod.com/all-01.htm    If you don't know, just say so, I am looking for feedback here.

9. Also on Page 2, there are (5) 701 Quizzes [and (5) 757 Quizzes] -- 701Quiz 01, 701Quiz 01a, 701Quiz 02, 701Quiz 03, 701Quiz 04 -- They are worth 50 pts each, not 100.  It is very important to start taking these quizzes now.

10. And there is a new type of Lesson-Quiz -- Virtual-Interactive-Visual Application -- such as Excel Quiz 01 and 02,  Word Quiz 01 and 02.  These require absolute concentration and having the application open and running in another window to test each answer, and are very difficult to pass.   Tell me if you get an 80 or above.

I am closing AGRAM2 with saying, repeat after me, QUALITY, ACCESSIBILITY, HIGH-PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY, Visual Communications, SCOREBOARD, and PERFORMANCE-BASED. 10EC points if you understand my meaning.   Be Well.  Prof. A. Out.
