Overview and Study Guide
COVID19 Closure: 
All Windows computers should be able to follow the above directions to install Microsoft Office and Jasperactive.   Jasperactive software needs to be downloaded and installed on the computer.  The website login looks the same as the program, but the website only allows viewing- lessons won't load.

If you have a Mac: Please follow the instructions to install Office.  You can practice and learn the standards without Jasperactive. It will be similar to Office on a Windows machine.  I will encourage students to try the Microsoft Office Specialist Exams online to see what skills you need to work on.

If you have a Chromebook you cannot install Office.  You can sign in to Office 365 and use the online version to explore the software.  It is similar to the desktop version but lacks many of the features.  You can practice and learn the standards without Jasperactive.  I will encourage students to try the online Microsoft Office Specialist Exams to see what skills you need to work on.

MOS testing can happen from home!  Certiport (maker of Compass testing software we use at school) has modified their testing methods to allow testing from home with ANY device except Iphone/Ipad.  You can take MOS tests on Windows, Mac, and Chrome devices!  Try it- if you don't pass, study and try it again! A pass from remote testing means an automatic pass of computer apps.

Please email me if you want to take a remote test.  I will be scheduling them to fit within the hours of the Certiport employees that oversee your test remotely.

Our daily work involves following the creation of various Microsoft Office files. Each student is assigned a computer workstation and given a daily task.  Due to the varied skills of students, the pacing seems slow for some and too fast for others.  Please seek help when needed.  If more time is required, some work can be completed at home or core extension time.  If work is finished early, Jasperactive lessons, Imagine Academy tutorials, or just working ahead is encouraged. 
Homework is not assigned.  All assignments are designed to be completed within the class period. Work from home is encouraged if a student is not finishing in the class period or absent from class.

Extra Credit?:  No, just work hard and keep up. Use the above links and resources to help.   ***Completing the Jasperactive Tutorials is a great stride towards certification and success***
