This study helps you develop the skills to master the following course competency:
- Communicate in a manner that is professional and consistent with expectations for members of the business professions.
Two key competencies that will help you throughout your academic program and business career are the abilities to communicate effectively in writing and to work accurately and effectively with quantitative data. In this study, you will complete a self-assessment in aspects of each: the Wonderlic Writing Assessment and an assessment of your skill in using Microsoft Excel. While neither of these is a comprehensive assessment of your competency, both can serve as initial indicators of where you might want to devote some time and effort to build skills. Your results from these assessments can help you determine resources to enhance your skills and create a plan to address any weaknesses or potential areas for growth.
Complete the following tasks in preparation:
- Review the tutorial Basic Tasks in Excel 2013.
- Take the Excel assessment. We will not use most of the advanced Excel features in this course, but you will as you move along in your program; taking the time now to consider your skills will be valuable.
- Submit the Wonderlic Writing Assessment, following the instructions below.
