Introduction

Unit 2 Assignment 4 Spreadsheet Project February 2002 By Christopher Perkins MY REPORT What the user needs My users are the tutors for all years. The tutors need a system in which to enter attendance marks to analyse the attendance of their students. The spreadsheet should enable them to enter the attendance marks for each pupil and work out an average of their attendance, and use it to find out what award they need to be given. The users also need to able to print out all of the attendance figures in alphabetical order, in the form of a chart or graph, to be able to see the results more clearly. Where I will collect my information from. I will need the names of the pupils from each year and each tutor I will ask the year managers for this information. ...read more.

I started to enter my data into the spreadsheet. I entered the column headings and changed the alignment by changing the text alignment to centre horizontally and vertically. I entered the names of the pupils and their attendance marks for the class. I changed the font size of the headings and made them bold so that they were clear and easily identified. I decided to put borders around the text to make it clearer and easier to read and changed the row height, merged cells and changed column widths, using the format menu. The Average To work out the average attendance I used the average function. I clicked on the = sign on the toolbar and chose "Average" from the list of options. Then I clicked on the R17 block and entered =average(R6:R16) ...read more.

Conclusion

Graphs Graphs allow people to just glance at information and understand it so it is a good idea to have them in your spreadsheet. To put graphs onto the spreadsheet you must first highlight all of the information you want to enter into the graph then click on the chart wizard button on the toolbar. When the chart menu appears you can select what type of graph you would like, I chose the bar chart menu and selected the 3D bar chart option then pressed next. Then you can enter your axis titles and chart title on the next screen. I named by bar chart "Award Chart" and labelled the Z-axis "Number Of Pupils", then pressed OK. After I pressed OK a box titled chart location appeared, in this box I clicked on "As object in Attendance" then pressed finish. Then your chart will be complete.
