BUSINESS STATISTICS

LAUNCH -  GUIDED INSTRUCTIONAL PLAN


FINAL EXAM & PREPARATION MATERIALS

The final is comprised of two parts - Knowledge Matters Hotel Cumulative Assessment and Buy A Bond Unit Assessment.  Both exams are Socrative - mostly multiple choice with some true/false.  These exact questions have all been previously addressed in Zoom lectures and/or in asynchronous lesson materials.  To study for the exam, go to the following Socrative rooms.

Knowledge Matters Hotel Cumulative Assessment = Socrative Room  GHCDF1

 Buy A Bond Unit Assessment = Socrative Room  GHCDF2


Attendance at the final exam is mandatory.  Students failing to take the final assessments will receive an NTI for both exams (counts as a zero in the grade calculation.)  Together, these exams will account for about 5% of the student’s overall grade percentage. Students will take these exams during their live session as scheduled below. If you cannot attend class that day and/or time, please contact Mr. Nelson in advance. Expect make-up times will be scheduled between 7-8am on the remaining days of finals week.

REMOTE INSTRUCTION WEEK #8

Asynchronous Assignment:  Knowledge Matters “Hotel Mogul Project”

Run the Hotel Simulation for Three Hours &

Then “SUBMIT" Your Progress By Friday, May 15  11:59pm (midnight)


All will compete but who will WIN? Big Point Bonuses For The Top Performers!!

Once you have spent three hours running the Hotel Simulation, you should submit your simulation results - even if you have not reached the 85 Balanced Scorecard Goal. The Knowledge Matters softward allows teachers to see every click or lack of click you make (pretty sophisticated stuff).  So please don’t try to fake it by just logging in as that will only show three hours with no activity or setting changes - that will earn no points.  In addition, each of your simulation runs are saved in the system for teachers to review. 

Grades will be assigned based on the following metrics.  

BE ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN MAKING ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SETTINGS IN Actions>>  - Many rounds of trial and error

RUN THE HOTEL SIMULATION MANY TIMES TO SEE HOW THOSE SETTING CHANGES PERFORM 


Here’s a quick preview of the Hotel Simulation tasks. Refer to the lesson simulations for additional guidance on how to adjust simulation settings.


STEP ONE: In this Hotel simulation, you will manage all aspects of the hotel including:

  • Pricing
  • Marketing
  • Restaurant Operations
  • Banquet and Meeting Operations
  • Housekeeping
  • Front Desk
  • Group Sales Bids

Your hotel is just opening and will need to have all aspects of its operations set up.  Most settings are under the "Actions” tab in the upper right hand corner of the window (Actions>>).  If you encounter trouble setting up some elements of the hotel, don’t worry about it - just do your best for three hours, and have some fun seeing what you can get to work.  YOU CAN'T BREAK IT!! GO FOR IT!!

If you find these Simulation exercises difficult, then consider setting up just the restaurant and front desk staffing first. Setting the menu pricing for the restaurant and using their scheduler tool are two of the more intuitive features.  Then run the simualtion and see how you do.  Again BE AGGRESSIVE at making changes.   


STEP TWO: You should refer to the Actions>>"Market Data Report" to determine the characteristics of the demand for your hotel. This report includes data that can help your decision making in both your lodging operations and your food and beverage operations.

In this project, you may run the simulation for long enough to take advantage of the seasonal trends in the hotel industry. Information is as seen in the "Group Demand Seasonal Trends" graph on the Actions>>"Market Data Report". As well, you can refer to the special events listed on the Actions>>"Front Desk" calendar month by month to determine your busy season for special events.

LAUNCH -  GUIDED INSTRUCTIONAL PLAN OVERVIEW

Largely A Repost of Email Sent Friday April 3


. . . The following paragraphs will share what you need to know as we prepare for a more structured schedule when school returns from spring break. Please read the entire email carefully. You need this information. The last section addresses some student inquiries regarding LinkedIn lesson #2. Try to enjoy your indoor spring breaks as much as possible, and BE SAFE! Mr. Nelson

Spring Break: No change here. No work will be assigned over spring break next week. We return to school on Monday April 13.

Make-up Opportunity For Work Missed In The First 3 Weeks of Remote Instruction: Given the circumstances, I am allowing all students to make-up work missed during the first three weeks of remote instruction. Knowledge Matters allows you access to these lessons at any time. Go to Socrative room 'GHCDP1' for making up the first LinkedIn lesson.  For the second LinkedIn assignment, go to Socrative room 'GHCDF2’ for period two, ‘GHCDF3” for period three and ‘GHCDF4’ for period four - all will remain open over break for those students who need to make up that work. Please email me when you submit this make-up work so I know to update your grade.

Quick Note To Seniors: Most of our second period are seniors, and I feel bad for you all being robbed of your grand finales in secondary education. It will give you something to tell to your grandchildren about. And know that you will tell your grandchildren about this event and your experiences living through it. As an aside (not a class requirement), I encourage you to keep a diary of thoughts as we go through the coming weeks. In some way record your thoughts to share with future generations. Trust me your memories will not be as strong when you have grandchildren (observation of an old guy).

LAUNCH Guided Instructional Plan: The school will be sending "big picture" details soon but here's an outline of what Business Statistics will look like after break.

Preview of Mandatory Live Instruction: Here's the big change for us. GHC will require every class to have two live class sessions of twenty minutes each;  Expect these sessions will involve: (1) a five-minute welcome including a review of student protocol and student question time; (2) a lecture or video of about 10-12 minutes; and (3) a short teacher wrap-up that will provide another opportunity to ask questions. Most of the sessions will have a Socrative based follow-up assignment. That assignment will count toward the three hour asynchronous (independent) work requirement. More details on student expectations for these live sessions will be shared during break. 

PLEASE NOTE THE SLIGHT CHANGE IN TIMES BELOW (This schedule aligns with the published schedule below.)

Period two Buisness Statistics sessions will start at 3:00pm on Mondays and 11:00am on Wednesdays. 

Period three Business Statistics sessions will start at 3:30pm on Mondays and 11:30am on Wednesdays.

Period four Business Statistics sessions will start at 4:00pm on Mondays and 12:00pm (noon) on Wednesdays.

Screen Shot 2020-04-07 at 1.16.43 PM


Asynchronous (aka Independent) Assignments After Spring Break: Knowledge Matters has been working well for the class. That was expected given our past experience with KM and that it's designed for remote instruction. I will continue to emphasize these highly refined materials that are designed for this form of instructional delivery.

The other independent work will digest reading and video materials followed by student checks for understanding and personal reflections delivered through the Socrative platform. Let me thank everyone for your flexibility in working with the Socrative assignments so far. The Socrative based lessons were not designed to be given at home. That's a byproduct of eliminating homework from Business Statistics a few years ago. The class at large has been handling them well, and when you've encountered issues that needed clarity you've contacted me by email. Keep that up and all will continue to turn out well. The live sessions will give you an opportunity to get clarifications on future Socrative assignments (in addition to email).

Due Dates: No change here. Flexibility continues to be the theme. Just continue to email me when you need additional time on any assignment or if you are unable to attend one of the live sessions.

Length of Time To Complete Independent Assignments: The "asynchronous" (aka independent) instructional time of three hours will not change. Previously, I've sought to assign work that has meaning for you but does not take more than three hours per week to complete (the mandated school standard) - that has not changed.

Now we all know that no assignment takes everyone the same length of time to complete. It's a good example of spread in a distribution (remember "Center, Shape, Spread & Outliers"). As the teacher, do I consider that a minimum number of hours where few spend less than three hours? Do I consider that an average number of hours where half of the students spend more than three hours and half do more than three hours? Do I consider that a maximum number of hours where nearly all students spend less than three hours? Since the school has not clarified this requirement, I have consciously decided to go with the last interpretation given the unprecedented circumstances.

Excel Applications & Certification: Not everyone has equal access to Excel at home so we will not be able to pursue more on this front. That does leave some holes in what I hoped we'd cover but there is no way to fill them this semester unfortunately. For any student who wishes to pursue Excel certification when we return to school (spring or fall), we can work out timing for practice and taking the test before school or during a regular period where your teacher would let you out of class. Seniors, you would be welcome to return to campus for this purpose as well.

Note On Last Socrative Assignment: Several students had inquiries about the last Socrative assignment. Here's what helped to clarify that assignment for some.

Multiple choice questions are covered in the assigned reading but free response questions are reflective questions that do not have right or wrong answers. They are intended to promote you reflecting on what you might put into your LinkedIn profile. Since it's a question about you, free response "answers" would not be found in the reading itself. Do your best to address the prompt with a well thought out paragraph. Do not spend more than ten-fifteen minutes on any single free response question (some could be done in less time). If you make an honest attempt to answer, you should get all the points. 


*************************************************************

ASSIGNMENTS - First Three Weeks of Remote Instruction

*************************************************************

Week #3 (3/30-4/3, 2020) - Remote Learning Assignments


Greetings Business Statistics Periods 2-4:

I hope you and your families are all safe and sound.  We enter the third week of remote instruction with some clearer direction and the knowledge that we will not return to the classroom in April.  Here’s the assignments for the coming week and a couple general announcements.


COMING ATTRACTION - LIVE INSTRUCTION!!  The school is establishing a more structured calendar for after Spring Break that will include a live (“synchronous”) instruction component  (likely two twenty-minute live class sessions per week per class).  To prepare us for the live (synchronous) instruction component, I will likely schedule a class session on Google Hangout or Zoom later this week.  This first session will focus on the digital logistics but it will also provide an opportunity to ask questions and get additional support.  If you have suggestions on how we might best use this time together, I’m all ears.  There is no precedence for what we’re doing here so all ideas are worth throwing out there.

AVAILABLE BY EMAIL EVERYDAY:  Email remains the quickest and most efficient means for us to communicate.  I am available most of the regular school day.  If you need me to be available in real time for more interactive communication, I’ve established "office hours”.   This week, you can reach to me Monday and Wednesday between 8:30-11:00pm.  I’m happy to schedule appointments in other windows of time as well.

GOOGLE CLASSROOM: With us not touching base everyday, I’ve decided to post assignments on Google classroom.  These instructions will be identical to those posted on the website and in the emails I send you. Refer to my email today (Monday March 30) for the Google class code.

ASSIGNMENT GRADES ARE POSTED: Grades are posted for the first two weeks of remote instruction. If you see anything that’s not right, drop me an email and it’s easily corrected.  If you need an extension, just reach out and we’ll work around any limits you are encountering.  If you see NTI (“not turned in”), that indicates you didn’t complete the assignment and it counts the same as a “0”.  When people contact me and need additional time, I record EXT (“extended time”) until they are able to make up the work and this score designation does not impact the overall grade percentage.


WEEK #3 ASSIGNMENTS: 

Complete Two Knowledge Matters Lessons 

“Customer Service: Front Desk” & “Customer Service: Social Media Feedback"

Well that’s it for now.  Contact me with any questions or comments.  Good luck with the start of your week and be safe, Mr. Nelson


**************************************************************************************************************************


Week #2 (3/23-27/2020) - Remote Learning Assignments

REMOTE INSTRUCTION ASSIGMENT HISTORY 


Week #1 (3/16-20/2020) - Remote Learning Assignments


This week, we will complete the first two lessons in the Knowledge Matters (KM) Hotel simulation.  For those absent on Friday (March 13), please add the following course code to your Knowledge Matters accounts.

Period Two - JE6CS7

Period Three - NE7TE8

Period Four - GL7NZ3


Each lesson will require you to complete a reading quiz, math quiz and simulation training (same as past KM simulation units) .  Minimum scores for the reading quiz have been set to 70% for the reading quiz and 60% for the simulation training (automatic retake if you get less).  You will take the math quiz but this score will not influence your weekly grade.  We will revisit some of these math topics in future week(s) of remote instruction. 


Here’s the first two lessons to complete this week.  These assignments will be due at midnight on Friday March 20, 2020.  

Lesson #1 - Pricing & Revenue Management

Lesson #2 - Group Sales


ASSESSMENT NOTES: For continuity, the GHC administration has asked teachers to post one and only one grade for each week of remote instruction.  The weekly grade will be posted a couple days after the due date.  My plan is to segregate the weekly grades for remote learning weeks and weighting them proportionately with the number of weeks that school is shut down.  This approach will likely benefit most students’ grades.  I reserve the option of modifying these grade guidelines for accuracy and fairness.  Know that my overarching philosophy is to give students the benefit of the doubt in light of these unprecedented events.
