From this 32. To This 33. Even to this 34. What will you record?Names (atomize it) Attendance (number of absences?)Participation (points / letters?)Tests (with/out a rubric?)Assignments (drop/keep low/high scores?) 35. How will you structure it?Names & numbers first?Final grades at the end?Letter grades? Percentages? Allow only certain values? Need a bell curve?*** 36. Know your keyboard buttonsCTRL / SHIFT ALT (ALT + ) 37. Know your software buttonsText Rotation Merge / Divide CellsDecimal Places 38. Know your FunctionsMost-used CommonSpecialty IF AVERAGE VLOOKUP SUM COUNT SUMIF MAX SUMPRODUCT MIN SMALL 39. Most Common =SUM(=SUM (A7:G7) 40. Most Common =IF(=IF(SUM (A7:G7)=0,,SUM(A7:G7)) 41. The IF function=IF(true, then, else) =IF(SUM(A7:G7)=0,,SUM(A7:G7)) 42. Nested IFs=IF(A7>=0.9,A, (IF(A7>=0.8,B,(IF(A7>=0.7,C, (IF(A7>=0.6,D,F )))) ))) 43. Replace Nested IF with VLOOUP=VLOOKUP(B10,$A$2:$B$7,2,1) 44. The VLOOKUP function=VLOOKUP(where,table,col.,T/F) =VLOOKUP(B10,$A$2:$B$7,2,1) 45. Amazing Data Validation!
