Excel Assignment

Create 2 Excel worksheets.   

  1. The first is your Excel matrix chart with formulas to calculate weighted scores and totals using a mixed cell reference. You will see which career scored best with the raw scores and which career scored best with the weighted scores. Divide 100 points among the criteria with the highest number of points going to the criteria most important to you.
  2. The second is a chart of your results from the matrix.  The chart may be the style of your choice. It must give good information about the data in your worksheet with your matrix. Name each worksheet in the workbook appropriately. Submit your file with both worksheets into the Blackboard assignment.

  

An example of the matrix is in this section labeled Evaluation Matrix Tutorial as an attachment.  Additional Resources available under GCFLearnFree.org section.

Do not forget to record your sources/references in APA format.
