SAM Projects homework cases

When you do the SAM Projects homework, you will go to Canvas, Modules, SAM. There are 10 Excel cases, and 5 Access cases assigned for K201. 

Before the class due (see daily schedule for your section) you need to finish and submit the assigned case. When you click on the assignment link .. you will click the Start button to get to the Instruction file, the start file, and the submission area. You can open this link as many times as you wish (the submission link is the only area limited to 5 attempts).

1. Click and open the instruction file (some students prefer to have a printed hard copy to work from)

2. Download a copy of the start file in step 2 by clicking on the link, and choosing Save As (it is wise to save it to the K201 Fall 2016\Excel 2016\Excel SAM Projects folder on your USB drive - so it's easy to find when you are ready to submit). Do NOT simply open... or it will be a temp file and your work will NOT be saved!!

3. Follow all the instructions in the step 1 instruction document, save your changes to the downloaded start file from step 2, and work until you believe all steps are correct. Then Save the changes... and return to SAM Projects, step 3 for that case... Browse for your saved work, and the Submit it for grading.

4. From Canvas, Modules, SAM Projects Reports, click the Reports button at the top, then the case link to see how you did. In the report select the Files icon to get specific feedback on each step (red x means you did not earn those points... and you can go back to your Excel file, make corrections to that step(s), save the changes and re-submit to SAM Projects again... up to 5 times per case ... or e-mail your instructor to reset some attempts if you need more tries).  You do not need to start over to re-submit.

Remember the K201 Department paid tutors are available to help in the MAC lab... (see the Blog or Canvas Announcement for details of days/times).

Please let your instructor or Mrs. Nemeth ( ) know if you have SAM account questions.
