NACOGDOCHES – Sixty-four Nacogdoches High School students – with the help of Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certified teachers Debbie Crenshaw and Andrea Davis – received their certification after successfully completing the MS Word Certification Test.
The most recent certification exam was given on the NHS campus on March 25 and 26. Business Information Management students were given two chances to pass the exam with a score of 660 or better. One student earned a perfect score of 1000.
Students learned the material from a variety of sources including teacher-led instruction, a MOS-based textbook and teacher-generated activities.
For the MS Word certification, students were required to learn all facets of preparing, editing, and formatting documents. These skills include:
· Sharing documents;
· Applying protection to a document;
· Applying a template to a document;
· Creating and manipulating tables in a document;
· Creating and modifying headers and footers; and
· Setting up and executing mail merge.
“Students will be able to add this certification to their resume to show that they are a certified Microsoft Office Specialist in Word,” Davis said.
Nacogdoches business owners identified the MOS certification as one of the required certifications for employment.
