Prompt 1

For this week’s assessment, you will create a memo. Creating a memo will help you practice the MS Word skills you have just read about in the background information. For this assessment, you can pretend that the memo is for school or work. We will assume that you have been asked to introduce yourself to your new boss (if you are writing for work) or to your Dean, Associate Dean, or your institution-assigned career advisor in your program of study (if you are writing for school).

In the memo, you will create at least three sections with headings that give appropriate details about you and your life and why you would be an asset to either the company or school you are writing to.

Required steps you need to follow to complete this assessment are as follows:

  1. Start with a blank Word document (do not use templates or previous documents)
  2. Finalize your margin measurements:
    1. Top/Bottom: 1 inch
    2. Right/Left: 0.75 inch
  3. Create a title at the top of the first page of your memo. The title must include:
    1. A font size of at least 24 points
    2. A font color other than black
  4. Create a minimum 450-word memo using the parts outlined in the Background section named “Parts of a Memo”
  5. Using Styles group under the Home tab, create at least four headings separating your memo into parts
  6. Create an interactive page number at the bottom of the memo by using the Page Number drop-down menu in the Header & Footer group under the Insert tab
  7. Save your completed Word document and upload it in Canvas
