Case Assignment

This assignment is designed to help you develop an understanding of how to conduct Internet research and evaluate the quality of the research. You will also develop Microsoft Word skills, and for the Mac user – Word for Mac.

Assignment Instructions:

STEP 1: Before you begin your search, review the Trident Writing Style Guide, located on the Trident TLC Home page:

Skim the entire document, and focus your reading on pages 16-18. When looking for references on the Internet, review the questions posed under "Identifying Credible and Reliable Sources" before using any Internet sources for this and all of your assignments requiring research. If you can answer all of the questions posed positively when looking at a particular site, then you can be pretty sure you have located a good reference; if it doesn't measure up one way or another, it's probably a site to avoid. The key to the whole process is to think critically about what you find on the Internet; if you want to use it, you are responsible for ensuring that it is reliable and accurate.

STEP 2: Review and bookmark the following websites for Word tutorials:

Word 2013 training courses, videos and tutorials:

Word 2010 training courses, videos and tutorials:

Word for Mac Training:

STEP 3: Write a 2- to 3-page paper reviewing how you researched Problem Solving using the Internet. Find two websites on Problem Solving to use in writing your paper. Using Dr. Timothy Mullen’s Trident University Writing Style Guide, determine the reliability and validity of the two websites on Problem Solving.
