25 Testing Methods Word Excel Powerpoint

26 Methods Comparison of Office 2007 and Office 2003 Word, Excel and Powerpoint tested Created a sample document with both versions and measured the time and compared the difficulty of the task with both versions

27 Word I copied 200 words from A Guide to the Final Year Project by Taru Sotavalta according to the specifications stated in the guide Word 2003 (1st) Word 2007 Time10:0409:07 Difficulty3/52/5

28 Excel I created a graph with both versions based on a table manually created from measurements done in a physics lab Excel 2003Excel 2007 (1st) Time05:0403:28 Difficulty3/52/5

29 Powerpoint I combined parts of the two previous tests into a slideshow (text, the Excel graph, a simple diagram) Powerpoint 2003 (1st) Powerpoint 2007 Time07:4605:54 Difficulty2/51/5

30 Conclusion Evaluation Resources

31 Evaluation Task to make Office more usable is definitely succesful Even with next to no preparation I could get more out of 2007 than the earlier, more familiar version A somewhat surpising but now unevitable, and in my opinion very welcome, upgrade to one of your main tools of studying

32 Resources Microsoft Office Website Online test drive version Office 2007 training A History Of The Personal Computer – The People and the Technology by Roy A. Allan, 2001, eBook Microsoft Office 2003 Super Bible by Wiley Publishing, 2003, eBook
