Fall Final for Computer Apps and BCIS

December 10, 2009

This is a computer class. Exams are NOT accepted on paper. They must be emailed.

Write an MLA format paper which meets all MLA guidelines. You can use Microsoft Word, Open Office, or Google Docs. I will not accept a paper that is not MLA format. These guidelines include: 1 inch margins (not 1.25); Name, Class, Period and Date in a block in the upper left corner; double-spaced; roman font; page numbers on second and following pages only (not on first page) in the format “lastname 1” (last name space page number, set up in the header); indent or extra space between paragraphs (but not both). This paper should have structure: introduction, body paragraphs, conclusion.

Topic: A general explanation of what you have learned in this semester and then three specific things you have learned and how you will apply them (how you will use them).

When you finish the paper submit it as an attachment to an email to me before the end of the exam period. The subject line of the email MUST BE: “Fall 2009 Exam.”

If the paper is not MLA format, if it does not have at least five paragraphs or if it is not attached to an email sent before the end of the final exam period, IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Use this checklist to be sure you get a 100:

  1. Margins are 1 inch on all sides
  2. Name is in the ID block in the upper left corner.
  3. Class is in the ID block in the upper left corner.
  4. Class Period is in the ID block in the upper left corner.
  5. Date is in the ID block in the upper left corner.
  6. The entire paper is double spaced.
  7. The entire paper is in a Roman font like Times New Roman.
  8. There are page numbers on all of the pages EXCEPT the first page.
  9. The page number is formatted with your last name and the page number.
  10. The paper has an intro, three body paragraphs and a conclusion – 5 paragraphs total.
