Word Processing Overview

Assignment 1: Word Processing Overview

Assignment 1 is designed to have you explore how to use word processing to format a multi-

page document complete with headers and/or footers, page numbers, line spacing, etc.

If you require assistance to do this assignment, be sure to see one of the TA/GAs or the instructor

during their office hours. You may also post questions to the class-wide open discussion forum in

Blackboard–just don’t attach or post any solutions to your problem as any posts made there will be

seen by everyone in the class. Posting to such forums is a good idea for the following reasons:

Very often more than one person has the same or similar question.

Often others in the class will reply/post with additional questions.

Also the instructor, as well as any of the TA/GAs, can respond to those questions.

Finally, it is always best to ask questions than not.

Task

Word Processing Program Requirement

You are to format a word processing document that is created using Microsoft Word (i.e. it will

have a .doc or .docx extension).

N.B. You must use Microsoft Office – Word for this assignment. You may obtain your free

copy of Microsoft Office by downloading the install program from the Office 365 portal.

The instructions for this assignment are using Microsoft Word 2016 version. However,

other versions of Microsoft Word are similar.

Save your file as: WP Assignment 1 YourFirstName YourLastName (i.e. File tab/Save As)

Overall Requirements

Your document must be set to use a Letter page (8.5″x11″). Although this is the default under

most circumstances, you can verify this by:

MS Word 2016:

o Click the Layout tab at the top of the window.

o Within the Page Setup group, click the Size icon.

o When the pop-up menu appears, ensure that Letter is selected.

Your document must have the following margins set:

MS Word 2016:

o Click the Layout tab at the top of the window.

o Within the Page Setup group, click the Margins icon.

o Choose Custom Margins… and set margins as required.

 NOTE: 1 inch is 2.54 cm –if centimetres appears instead of inches.

set to Canada and Canada uses the metric system by default. It is possible to override this,

but, it is not necessary for this course.

To set the Line and Paragraph Spacing (i.e. spacing between lines of text), do the following:

o Click the Home tab at the top of the window.

o Within the Paragraph group, click the paragraph launcher (i.e. angled arrow)

located at the bottom right corner of the Paragraph group.

o In the Spacing section, set Before and After options to 0 pt each and set the Line

spacing to Single.

align icon.)

Header Requirements

Headers can be found in:

MS Word 2016 | Insert tab | Header & Footer group | Header | Edit Header

N.B. Press the Tab key to move the cursor to the centre and right positions in the header.

For Assignment 1, the header will appear on all pages. Assignment 1 has no footers. Your header

must have three parts on a single line all appearing in 11 point Times New Roman text:

Part 1: Left justify with this text:

o While in the header, choose the Insert tab | Header & Footer group | Page

Number icon | Current Position | scroll until you see Page X of Y in the Header

N.B. Make sure the header text is NOT in bold.

Click/Double-click in the document area of page 3 to get out of the header.

Filler Text Requirements For Page 3 On

Your document must have some filler text. Open “Assignment 1 – WP Body Data File.rtf” (i.e.

File tab/Open). You will need to copy the data from this file and paste it into your document.

When copying and pasting the text in your document, to avoid bringing in any adverse text

formatting from the data file, you must do the following:

Highlight and copy the entire body data file and then follow the pasting instructions below:

MS Word 2016 | Click on Home tab | Click the down arrow on the Paste icon and choose

Paste Special… | Click on Unformatted Text in the dialog window that appears.

N.B. The footnotes from the data file are not copied to your document. You will be adding a

reference page instead at the end of your document to cite the resources.

Page 3: The Document Body

The body of the document starting on page 3 with “My reflective practice project” and ending

with “students achieve success.” must now be formatted. The text will be 12 point Times New

Roman font. You are to change the text as follows:

Between each paragraph is/are (an) empty line(s) (i.e. created by hitting Enter). Delete

these extra lines.

Now to add back space between these paragraphs, select all of “My reflective practice

project” paragraphs and go into the paragraph settings dialog box and set the following:

o Set the First line value to be 0.5” (inch) (Indentation section/Special);

 This will indent each new paragraph half and inch from the left margin.

o Set the Line spacing to Double.

 This will double space the entire body part of the document.

Find the phrase, “the library was not inviting” and bold it (Home tab/Find icon).

Find the sentence, “The teacher librarian should make reading fun and exciting.” bold,

italicize, and underline it.

Now select/highlight only the last paragraph of “My reflective practice project” and justify

the text in that paragraph so the text is aligned evenly at the left and right margins.

Now you need a title for the “My reflective practice project” body text. At the very top of page 3,

hit Enter with the cursor before the word “My”. This will create an empty paragraph. Now do

the following:

Put the cursor in the new empty paragraph at the top of page 3. Make sure the cursor is at

the left margin (you may have to press the Backspace key). Centre the paragraph.

Type the text, “The Library” (without the quotations) and set it at 30 point, Times New Roman.

Bold and underline the title.

Make sure there is one blank line between the title and body text.

Page 9: References

You will now be adding a reference page to your assignment.

The last page of the reflective practice project text should be Page 13. Press the Enter key after

the last line. Press Ctrl-Enter to create a page break. You will create the reference on this page.

You must do the following:

On page 13, set the First line paragraph indentation to zero (0) since you don’t want any

extra indentation here.

Key in the title, “References,” (without the quotations) using 12 point, Times New

Roman font, centre, bold and underline on its own line/paragraph.

o Don’t forget to take the bold and underline off before going onto the next line so

that the body of the reference page is not bolded and underlined.

Assignment 1: Word Processing Copyright © 2018 Ross Ferrara. All Rights Reserved. Page 6 of 6

Leave 1 blank line (same line spacing as body text – Double). Then at the left margin,

copy the data from Assignment 1 – WP References Data File.rtf into your document.

(N.B. Use the same procedure to copy the references into your document as you did for

the body.)

The entire reference page is in 12 point font size, Times New Roman font.

Make sure the line spacing of the entire reference page is Double.

Each reference must have a hanging indent by doing the following:

o MS Word 2016:

 Highlight all the references you copied.

 Click the Home tab.

 In the Paragraph group, click the paragraph launcher located at the

bottom right corner of the Paragraph group.

 Make sure you are in the Indents and Spacing tab.

 Click the down arrow key under the Special section and click Hanging.

 Make sure the By next to the Special section says 0.5” (or equivalent cm)

and click OK.
