Correspondence 68-70, Business Letter in Block Style (with table)

Part 4 Practice Test, Correspondence 68-72
Business Letter in Block Style (with table), 47 minutes (+2 for saving and uploading)

This document has been designated as a practice test because it is very similar to the actual document processing test you will take on campus next week. Use Start Work to begin from a blank Word screen, and type the practice test. Your goal is to have zero Keystroking Errors and correct formatting when you click Submit Work and to complete the job within the time limit. When you come on campus for your actual test, you will be required to do the same.

YOU MAY NOT EDIT A PRACTICE TEST! If you exit and find you had any errors, use Start Work (not Edit Work) to retype the document from a blank screen. You may restart a practice test as many times as you want to and you should. This is how you prepare yourself for the actual test in which you are allowed only one attempt.

  • Use Start Work to create Correspondence 68-72; correct all typos and formatting errors.
  • Exit and use Browse and Submit Work. If you have any errors, use Start Work to begin from a blank Word screen, and try again.
  • If you have zero errors, check Time Spent in the Portfolio to be sure you are within the time limit. Time Spent begins when you click Start Work and ends when the file name appears in the Browse box after clicking Browse. Therefore, work efficiently as you open, close, save, and browse to your finished job.
  • I will allow 2 extra minutes for these activities; so if your Time Spent is 49 minutes, for example, you're still within an acceptable time limit.

Note: When you come in for testing next week, you will have only one Start Work attempt on the test. Your goal is to have zero Keystroking Errors and correct formatting when you click Submit Work to score the document within the time limit.

Assessment Strategies Handout

 

Note to instructors: Although there is no one definite standard for assessing a finished document processing job, this file should provide you with helpful guidelines for assessing and assigning time limits to Progress Checks, Practice Tests, Outcomes Assessments Tests, or any document processing job in the 11e. If you are interested in receiving this handout, please e-mail Jack Johnson or Arlene Zimmerly. See the Contact Us page for our e-mail addresses.

Lesson 69: Multipage Memos With Tables

69-B, MAP+: Symbols

Up to now, you have used MAP+ for additional skillbuilding drills and alphabet or number diagnostics. In this lesson, you will use MAP+: Symbols. This routine begins with a diagnostic pretest that includes a combination of number and alphabet keystrokes 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 weakness and provides customized prescriptive drills to fix them. See Map & Skillbuilding, Diagnostics for details.

69-G+, Language Arts, Spelling
Repeat these drills until you have 2 errors maximum.

69-H: Find and Replace
