Portfolio Outline:

For IP 10, you must create a portfolio that includes the elements listed below. For each of these elements, create a section (either in the document, or in a separate document) entitled “Please Notice”. This section is where you describe the skills you used, and the work you had to do in order to create your document.

  • Your best example of formatting a Word document to display text and pictures. You MUST display your knowledge of working with font & font characteristics, tables, headers, text boxes, and images. You MAY also choose to include columns and hanging indents. On your document, include a “Please Notice” section that explains the above skills and which also shows your understanding of how to organize and present information.
  • Your best example of organizing and displaying numerical data in a spreadsheet. You MUST display your knowledge of font & font characteristics, formulas, cell widths, cell shading, cell justification, borders, sorting, creating charts (titles and labels), and using separate sheets. Again, on your document, include a “Please Notice” section that explains the above skills and which also shows your understanding of how to organize and present information.
  • Your best example of photo editing using Photoshop Elements. You MUST demonstrate your ability to crop, work with layers, add text, add text effects (stroke, bevel, glow, etc.), combine images, and add a filter. Include a “Please Notice” section that explains the above skills and which also shows your understanding of how to organize and present information.
  • Your best example of using PowerPoint to give information about a topic of your choosing. You MUST demonstrate your ability to use slide transitions, use entrance and exit animations (automatic and timed), adding text and visuals, and inserting audio. Include a “Please Notice” section that explains the above skills and which also shows your understanding of how to organize and present information.

Assessment:

Criteria is listed below for each of the 4 components of your portfolio.

Please note, that if you choose to include in your portfolio a piece of work that has already been graded throughout the year, the highest grade it will be eligible for is a 3 (75-90% range), whereas if it is a new piece of work the highest grade it will be eligible for is a 4 (90-100% range). For example, if Suzy submits her “Spreadsheet Assignment” as her best example of work in Excel, the maximum mark she can receive for that section is 3. But, if Suzy decides to apply those skills she learned and creates a spreadsheet that lists the contents of a certain chocolate bar and also represents this information graphically, she has the possibility of getting a 4 for that section. (The reason being, it shows greater ability to use the skills learned in a new situation.)

Also remember, your “Please Notice” section is important because it allows the teacher to understand what skills you have used and what work you did to achieve the end result. This allows you to brag about the work you did – please do not forget to include it in your document!!
