This full-year course will enable students to develop advanced computer skills in applications such as word processing, spreadsheets, and graphics using Microsoft Office 2003. Students are encouraged to pursue (MOS) Microsoft Office Specialist Certification (online tests given by Microsoft for a fee comparable to Advanced Placement tests) and can prepare for these exams by joining the MOS Club, using online resources, and being successful in this class.
Assessment will be based on class projects, tests, demonstrating computer operations, etc. Final assessment will be an in-class final exam. Students will be exempt from parts of the final exam upon successful completion of this course and passing 1 or more MOS exams.MOS Certification is an excellent resume builder and will often exempt students from a required computer class at some colleges.
