As part of the UIL Academic Coaching Staff, I coach the Computer Applications event which is BIM II and Beyond! If you want to challenge you BIM II skills, contact me about joining our team.
Computer Applications focuses on word processing speed and accuracy, skill in the use of database and spreadsheet applications, and the integration of all of these. Contestants will have the opportunity to produce two printouts and the mandatory tie breaker. Each printout will be assigned a weighted point value, based on difficulty, which will be so indicated on the contest paper.
This is a technology based contest, and the goal is for students to have a thorough, working knowledge of these three applications and be able to complete substantial tasks in all of them and to direct data from one application to another. The difficulty of the elements on tests will increase as we get to higher levels of competition.
UIL practices will be held on Wednesdays during the B section of Power Hour.
