AS: How can we track your Type to Learn 3 progress?
Objectives: Students will use Microsoft Access to create a database to track their weekly keyboarding progress
Subject: Technology, Databases
Creating the database:
Students will launch Microsoft Access from the Start Menu
Students will name their database so it can be easily identified as their own
Students will protect their database by assigning it a password
Students will define Date, Lesson, Homework, Accuracy, and WPM fields, then create and save a table from the Design View
Students will enter their current keyboarding data into their progress table
Adding a new table:
After the first Type to Learn Assessment, students will create a new database called TTL-A Results
Students will include the following fields in TTL-A Results:
Students will enter their current assessment results into this table
Updating the database:
Students will open their Keyboarding Progress database to update their weekly progress table
Students will update their assessment results monthly
Differentiation: Analyzing the database:
Students will export the data from the progress table and/or their assessment results table into Excel
Students will create a graph of their keyboarding lesson progress, homework completion and assessment results over time
Vocabulary: Database, record, field, query
Materials: Microsoft Access, handwritten keyboarding progress, assessment results
