Digital Information Technology Class


This is the class page for Introduction to IT. The class meets at  7:00-8:00, 9:05-10:00 and 11:45-12:40 daily.  This is a yearlong course for high school credit. The objectives for this class are as follows:

 MS Word 2016
 MS PowerPoint 2016
 MS Excel 2016

Microsoft Office Specialist Certification

Students are expected to pass certification at the end of each section. Ms Word and PowerPoint are offered in the first semester and MS Excel is covered extensively in the second semester. Students must complete online work which includes training, quizzes, projects and exams before they sit for the certification test. While the class is set up as an online class, there are plenty of in class activities and instruction to reinforce what they are learning. Students must pass the practice exam with a 750 of higher to sit for the exam.

The exam has a scoring parameter of 700-1000. Students must make a 700 on the certification exam in order to receive a certificate. Scoring 1000 is a perfect score. Since the exam cost is covered by the school district, only those with the practice exam scores of 750 or higher will sit for the exam.

Students passing the exam are given an in class certificate and recognized at the end of the year at the honor awards day program with an official certificate.
