ORIENTATION TO WORD PROCESSING: Some students need extra help at first with word processing. Next week, you will use the Word Manual, GDP, and Microsoft Word to complete Practice exercises in the Word Manual and document processing jobs in the textbook. You will also use the Reference Manual and GDP routines such as Start Work, Edit Work, Scored Results (aka Proofreading Viewer), Browse, and Submit. All document processing jobs are graded and some are designated as Proofreading Checks.

You weekly assignment sheets include enough information to complete these tasks. But, if you prefer an in-person orientation, I will announce the date, time, and location for the in-person orientation. Check your e-mail.

Lesson 17-G, MAP+: Alphabet

Up to now, you have used MAP+ for additional skillbuilding drills. In this lesson, you will use MAP+: Alphabet. This routine begins with a diagnostic pretest that includes alphabet keystrokes only followed by a diagnostic analysis of up to 80 different types of misstrokes for that pretest. MAP+ then displays a list of prescriptive drills for you to type to address your specific keystroking weaknesses. This diagnostic program is unique to GDP and is an extremely powerful tool that helps pinpoint your keystroking weaknesses and provides customized prescriptive drills to fix them. See Map & Skillbuilding, Diagnostics for details.
