Assignment Type: Discussion Board Deliverable Length: 150?250 words Points Possible: 75 Due Date: 1/15/2012 11:59:59 PM CT The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation. The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each week. As the fund manager for a large mutual fund, you are preparing for a conference call with all your major investors. You plan to e-mail everyone with an attachment that will serve as a guide for the upcoming call. You know investors' time is limited, so you want to be focused in your brief report. Because there are numerous figures to discuss, you will be including 1 or more charts all in the same document. For each of the following points, prepare both a paragraph of commentary and an appropriate chart to support it. ?Find the last 4 years' sales and profit or net income data for a major retail corporation. ?Calculate profit as a percentage of sales; be careful to place the decimal point correctly. ?Prepare a paragraph of explanation/interpretation of the data as if this were a small part of a lengthy report to potential investors. ?Prepare a chart to display all the information in a meaningful way. Suggestions for Responding to Peer Posts Review your peer's chart and commentary, and consider the following questions: ?Is their commentary sufficient support for the chart and enough information to supply potential investors with? ?Is the chart understandable or confusing? ?What do you think about the chart design? ?Was the sales, net income, and percentage of sales calculated correctly? If not, explain what went wrong and provide the correct calculations. In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings. For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.,I will need this back by tommorow morning the latest,thank you so much,Just wondering how this assignment is comming along for I will need this assignment back tonignt for its due and I can't get an extension on this. Thanks Jenn Orr,I need this assignment back tonight before 1 am my time for its due and I can not get an extension.,A bar chart or a histogram along with a line chart would be extremely appropriate in case of the report to be prepared by the fund manager. The report would need to include statistical data or information on sales, expenses and other relevant information of the department. Mean would be the most appropriate form of statistical measure for the purpose of finding the average performance of the department and standard deviation would be appropriate to analyze and exercise control if a budget was used. A histogram and a line chart would be most appropriate as it would help in the process of comparison of performance over a period of time. So when analyzing funds and their performance over a period of time it is useful to use comparative charts which can be in the form of a percentage histogram, a simple bar chart or even just a line chart which helps compare perofrmnaces.,that is what I was sent in reference to this assignment,I would like to know how this assignment is coming along for I need this assignment back tonight
