Google Documents Presentation - In Blog & PDF

I told myself I would not give up on this assignment. I tried and tried to follow any directions I could find on exporting a pdf. I just couldn't get it to work. I even asked a dozen people and no one could show me. I followed you advice in blogs, and it just wasn't happening. So I gave up. Now I am back to try again. I wanted to learn how to do this. I know I will be able to use this skill. Mainly I just hate it when I struggle with something.

My PDF Powerpoint Presentation.

Fun with Data - Narrative

The narrative step wasn't too bad either. I liked making the summary page and added all the information in. I guess I like seeing the final step.
Learning how to use excel, and all it's features will really be helpful with the implementation of RTI. I could easily type in my students scores for each category and see the results in comparison I am glad I figured it all out, no matter that it took A LONG time.

There is a link to my published data page in the Fun with Data- Manipulating Raw Data blog.

Fun with Data - Manipulating Raw Data

This was the "scary" step. I did it with a trial and error method. I looked up the codes and used them. I had to check them to make sure they are right. I sometimes even work out math problems because I don't trust calculators, or how I typed into them. The same went for this formulas. After doing one page I felt confident to continue the rest.
Here are my final Data forms. (It has the summary page too, I did them in the same sitting.

Fun with Data - Formatting

This part wasn't too bad. I am not accquainted with Excel. I don't even have it on any of my home computers.
I simply copied and pasted the headings into place.
The next two steps look a little more challenging.
I wasn't sure if we were supposed to share the formatting step. I didn't see anywhere on the directions till after the final step how to submit it.

Assessments Forms

I liked this assignment. I didn't know it would be so easy to create an online quiz. I made all my questions required because I wanted to make sure none of my students left anything blank.

This is my Quiz.

Windows Movie Maker

This was a really easy project for me. The only hang up I had was trying to find time to do the project at school because I only have powerpoint at school, and the presentation I wanted to use was saved on my school computer. I was not able to add voiceover because I did this at school. I may be able to add it later when I get back from visiting my family now that I have the show saved as a movie and don't need powerpoint. I went ahead and downloaded movie maker on my home computer because I like using the program.

All the CSO, ISTE and 21st Century skills are on my movie. Enjoy!
