Review Questions

Answer the following questions (use MS Project help if necessary):

1) Define effort-driven?

Effort-driven means that when you assign or remove people from a task, Project lengthens or shortens the duration of the task based on the amount of resource units assigned to it, but it doesn't change the total amount of work for the task. When you add or delete resources on an effort-driven task, work is spread around equally among resources

2) Under what circumstances would you turn off effort driven scheduling?

You can turn off the Effort Driven setting if you choose the fixed-duration or fixed-units task type. With the fixed-work task type selected, the Effort Driven setting isn’t only turned on automatically, but in fact it can’t be turned off.

3) Use a real-world example of when you would make a task as a Fixed Duration type task?

Your painter is assigned full-time (100%) to paint a room in 4 days. The work is 32 hours.
Then you assign the same painter another room to paint. The painter can only work part-time (50%) painting the additional room. When you enter 50%, Project keeps the duration fixed at 4 days, and recalculates work to be 16 hours.

4) What is the formula for calculating duration?

Duration = Work ÷ Resource Units

5) What are the eight preset work contours (hint: In the Task Usage view right click on a resource name an open the assignment information box) and what are the procedures in applying them to a resource on a task?

The 8 present contours are: Flat - Work hours are even throughout task; Back loaded - Work increases toward end of the task; Front loaded - Work decreases toward start of the task; Double peak - Two peaks occur over task duration; Early peak - Peak activity occurs during first quarter; Late peak - Peak activity occurs during last quarter; Bell - Hours peak in the…...

...Lesson Plan Modifications for English Language Learners Melaney Winkleblack LL240: Linguistically & Culturally Diverse Learners (ACU1240A) Instructor Shannon Gevero November 5, 2012 Lesson Plan Modifications for English Language Learners In schools today there are many different cultures that are present within each classroom and some of those cultures have different values and speak a different language than the majority of the other students within the classroom, so to accommodate those students (ELLs) teachers incorporate different strategies within their lessons and classrooms to ensure that every child is receiving a high standard of education; which will help them to become better prepared for the new world that they are being exposed to. This paper will examine a lesson plan that can be used to help English language learners in their literacy development; addressing the content area of reading and using this lesson plan to further progress a second grade class into becoming proficient. Along with examining the lesson plan, this paper will also identify three strategies, list-group-label, key vocabulary, and prereading text, that are used within it and identify three new strategies that can be used to modify the lesson to allow for comprehensible input and identify ways to scaffold lessons to help improve a student’s comprehension. English language learners are becoming more and more common within our schools and addressing their educational needs...

Review Question -Mgmt404

...Review Questions Name _________________ Answer the following questions (you may use MS Project Help): 1) What are the three base calendars included in MS Project and what are the default values of each? The three base calendars are Standard, Night Shift, and 24 Hours. Standard default values is all week days from 8 AM to 12 PM then 1 PM to 5 PM. Night Shift is All week days from 12 AM to 3 AM, 4 AM to 8 AM, and 11 PM to 12 AM. Plus Saturday from 12 AM to 3 AM, and 4 AM to 8 PM. 24 Hours is every day from 12 AM to 12 AM. 2) What is the difference between a base calendar and a resource calendar? A bade calendar is for everyone to use while a resource calendar is only for that resource that was assigned to. 3) Why schedule one project meeting after completion of the last task, Test System? Since we were working out the work days in the schedule, it lower the finish date on the project. But since the last project meeting was set to this date it could not be changed. So when we delete it, the project days lower down. 4) Give an example of when you would assign a 24-hour calendar to a resource. When we need that resource to work every day in the given time we need them to. For example a securities guard. 5) If you were doing a senior project, what would be the base calendar you would use for students working on the project and what adjustments would you make to it? If I was working on a senior project there is no set time on when......

People grow tomatoes and flowers and other plants in them. A greenhouse stays warm inside, even during winter. Sunlight shines in and warms the plants and air inside. But the heat is trapped by the glass and can't escape. So during the daylight hours, it gets warmer and warmer inside a greenhouse, and stays pretty warm at night too. This is because the heat received from the sun is trapped inside the greenhouse by the glass. The Earth is also like a greenhouse. During the day Earth’s surface warms up in the...

...Lesson 3 – Informed Consent, Substitute Decision-Making, and the Family Centered Approach * It should be noted that a choice might properly require only low/ minimal competence, even though its expected risks exceed its expected benefits or it is more generally a high-risk treatment, because all other available alternatives have substantially worse risk/benefit ratios. * Thus, according to the concept of competence endorsed here, a particular individual’s decision-making capacity at a given time may be sufficient for making a decision to refuse a diagnostic procedure when forgoing the procedure does not carry a significant risk, although it would not necessarily be sufficient for refusing a surgical procedure that would correct a life-threatening condition * The greater the risk relative to other alternatives—where risk is a function of the severity of the expected harm and the probability of its occurrence—the greater the level of communication, understanding, and reasoning skills required for competence to make that decision. * It is not always true, however, that if a person is competent to make one decision, then he or she is competent to make another decision so long as it involves equal risk. * Even if the risk is the same, one decision may be more complex, and hence require a higher level of capacity for understanding options and reasoning about consequences. * The evaluation of the patient’s decision-making will seek to assess how...

Lesson 3 Essay

...Lesson 3 Essay Questions: 1- Compare and contrast directional selection and disruptive selection, and provide an example of each. Directional selection occurs when one extreme of a trait is favored and the distribution curve shifts in that direction. An example of this is the human struggle with malaria. The mosquito Anopheles transmits the disease. A new drug for the disease and a insecticide for the mosquito was created. But over the years they became resistant to it and multiplied, shifting the distribution curve toward the resistant type of parasite. Disruptive selection is where any two extremes of a trait are favored over any intermediate phenotype. For example, British land snails are found in low vegetation areas. The thrushes feed on snails with dark shells and in the forest they feed on snails with light banded shells. So each phenotype adapted to their environment. (Mader & Windelspecht, 2012) 2- Many pathogenic bacteria species are becoming resistant to antibiotics. Explain how such adaptations can develop through the process of natural selection. (Hint: Relate this example to the conditions that are necessary for natural selection to occur.) Natural selection is the process that results in adaptation of a population to the environment. This is what happens with antibiotic resistant bacteria. When antibiotic is administered, some bacteria may survive because they are genetically resistant. This bacteria will pass on their genes to the next generation...

Lesson 3 - Individual Essay

...From the Meaning-Centered Approach, how is Zappos being generated through human interaction? The way to understand organizational communication is by discovering how organizational reality is generated through human interaction. The approach describes organizational communication as the process for generating shared realities that become organizing, decision-making, influence and culture. I must admit, I didn’t fully understand when Karl Weick proposed that organizations as such do not exist but are in the process of existing through on-going human interaction. Then I thought about it and was like, he’s right. Organizations are social systems and can only exist when human interaction exists. In other words, if there’s no communication there’s no organization. It’s evident in both videos that value is placed on the employees which spills over to customer service. The corporate culture is much more than a set of values but a web of human interactions. It’s all about how the business gets done. Employees share the same core values and share in the responsibility of delivering happiness to the customers. The company doesn’t focus on customer service but on the culture of the company. Employees have the same shared practices and realities which is how they create and shape the company. The influence comes from the CEO Tony Hsieh. In the video, the CEO talks we not I. He doesn’t have his own office but instead shares a space among his employees. His...

Lesson 3 Essay Questions

...Lesson 3 Essay Questions: 1. Compare and contrast directional selection and disruptive selection and provide an example of each. Both directional and disruptive selection is a type of natural selection. Natural selection is the differential survival and/or reproduction of organisms as a function of their physical attributes. (phenotype) This results in evolution over many generations. Each mode of selection alters the mean or variance of a phenotypic trait in a population or species. These distributions can be represented in bell curves. Both selection processes can be influenced by human interaction. Directional Selection occurs when an extreme phenotype at one end of a population distribution is favored over all other phenotypes and over many generations it will lead to one distinct form. An example of directional selection is resistance to antibiotics. When an antibiotic is administered a few of the bacteria survive because they are genetically resistant. The surviving bacteria will pass on this phenotype (resistance) to the next generation. Over time the bacteria will be completely resistant to the initial antibiotic. Disruptive selection is an outcome of natural selection in which both extreme phenotypes at the end of a population distribution are favored over the average phenotype. This type of selection favors polymorphism, the occurrence of two different forms in a population of the same species. It can also lead to specification and form two...
