Question Description

I’m studying for my Computer Science class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

Can someone help me with writing this urgent essay with short notice:

Select a Information Technology Term

You need to write an extended definition for two separate audiences:

Audience:  a first-year student in the field.

1)  For this portion of the assignment, use at least one outside reference and cite the reference appropriately (both within the document and on the citation page).

 List the types of expansion techniques you used (minimum of two different techniques for each expansion).

2)  Write an extended definition for a layperson.

Audience: a layperson (amateur with no experience)

 For this portion of the assignment, use at least one outside reference and cite the reference appropriately (both within the document and on the citation page).

List the types of expansion techniques you used (minimum of two different techniques for each expansion)*.

3)  In addition, give a summary explanation of your changes (not a summary of the definition). A summary explanation will include what you changed from one definition to the other and why you changed it.

*expansion techniquesdescribes how you must EXPAND your definition of a term when you are writing for different audiences(ww68, 522, 533)

EXAMPLE:  CEO (Chief Executive Officer)

Another type of "expansion" of a definition would bedefining your terms in a sentence.

EXAMPLE:  TERM + TYPE + DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS

a CEO is an employee who leads a company in the most senior position of responsibility

Another type of "expansion" of a definition would be extending you definition into one or more paragraphs.  (This is when you need to provide extensive definition by including EXAMPLES, PROCEDURES, AND DESCRIPTIONS.

EXAMPLE:A chief operating officer (CEO) in a large brokerage not only leads the company as the senior employee with responsibility for expanding markets and allocating resources, but also leads the governing board of the company.  Thus, on an busy day, the CEO of Deloitte, Inc. may meet with clients, handle major purchasing and acquisition decisions and later address senior stockholders (owners  of Deloitte,Inc) to discuss plans for mergers or payment of dividends to shareholders.
