13 ASSIGNMENTS B2 & B3 SCENARIO :- Your school has decided to take a group of pupils to France next June on an adventure, water sports trip for 10 days. There will be 5 teachers and 50 pupils on the trip. Each pupil will be allocated a group number for both accommodation and sports activities purposes and a teacher will be responsible for a group (10 pupils) each. The teachers, whose leader is Mrs Green and deputy leader is Mr Gray, go free as the tour company pay their costs instead of employing other adults to supervise the pupils on the trip. All pupils must be able to swim at least 50 metres by the time the trip leaves. This year the trip is expected to cost a maximum of 500 but final arrangements regarding flights from Belfast to London, (in order to link up with the tour company s coach) the cost for each pupil for the adventure trip and food while travelling are yet to be finalised. The two database files required for this assignment should be received electronically from CCEA and are called PUPIL DATABASE and CONTACT DATABASE. Each file will be made available in excel format, but centres may adapt the format to suit their own needs. Some centres may wish to use the databases as relational databases but this is not essential to the assignment. The solutions can be achieved by treating the files as two flat files. One fieldname in PUPIL DATABASE is missing. The information required for this fieldname can be found in one of the tasks. 9

14 ASSIGNMENT B2 PART A Task 1 Design 2 data capture forms (1 for the pupil file and one for the contact file) for the school to use before future trips. The forms should match the needs of the school and may be used for data entry to the PUPIL DATABASE and the CONTACT DATABASE. The data capture form will be filled in by pupils wishing to apply for school trips such as this one. You should include a school logo or a school-trip logo specially designed for this school trip (the logo can be an original, relevant design created by yourself). You may produce a form for each database or one form to satisfy the needs of both files. Print the final version of the data capture form(s). PUPIL DATABASE Task 2 One pupil has decided against going on the trip as his parents have already booked their family holiday for the same dates. Remove him from the pupil and contact databases. His name is listed below along with his pupil number and year group:- Alexander John 1 8 Task 3 The teacher in charge has decided to allocate 1 place, to replace John Alexander. His details are :- 1. Terry Gaskill who is in year 8. He was born on 12 th October 1993 and will be pupil number 51, has no medical problems and will be in the same group as J. Alexander who withdrew. He paid his 100 deposit on 30/09/03 and can swim 50 meters. The school has permission to take and use his photograph if necessary. His contact details are as follows:- Mr F. Gaskill, who is his father. The address is 15, Belgrave Road, Belfast, BT8 6FT and the contact telephone number is His designated teacher will be Mr Black and he will be in group number 1. The balance of his money must be paid by the end of April. 2. Jenny Vance who is a non-swimmer, in year 12. She will be pupil number 52, will be allocated Miss White as teacher leader but will have no group number and no acceptance date as she has not paid a deposit. Jenny was born on 23 rd November She has asthma. The rest of her details are not required unless she gets accepted for the trip in the event of someone else withdrawing. Please add the above 2 pupils to the relevant databases. Terry Gaskill needs to go into both the Contact database and Pupil database. Jenny Vance only needs to go into the pupil database because she has not yet been accepted onto the trip, therefore the other details are not needed. 10

15 Task 4 Mrs Green has asked for a list of all pupils in alphabetic order to be sent to the tour company. Sort the PUPIL database file by both surname and forename and print the full list of pupils showing all fields. Task 5 Mr Black is in charge of medical details and needs a list of all pupils who have allergies to penicillin or paracetamol. He wants to make sure all necessary precautions are taken before they leave the country. Print the pupils full names, year group, allergies and teacher in charge of their group only. Task 6 Mrs Browne, another teacher, is going to organise swimming lessons for any male pupils in her group who cannot swim 50 metres. Search for those pupils and print out their full names and year groups only. Task 7 Mrs Green has organised a photograph for the local newspaper in order to publicise the activities of the school. She has decided to use only girls in year 8 whose parents/guardians have given permission for their photos to be taken for school purposes. Print a list of these pupils full names and year group. CONTACT DATABASE Task 8 Create the correct structure for this file and import the relevant data. Task 9 It has now been confirmed that the school trip will cost 500. Mrs Green issues receipts to all pupils who have fully paid up for the trip. Search for those paid-up and design a formal receipt which should include the school badge (this may be an original design made by you). Using mail merge facilities you should now personalise the receipts. Each receipt should not exceed 50mm by 105mm. Print out one copy of a receipt showing the fieldnames and another set showing the data for those found by the search. Task 10 Miss White has responsibility for gathering outstanding money from pupils. Use mail merge facilities to print a standard letter informing parents of the date for final payments only for those who have paid less than

16 ASSIGNMENT B3 Payments Spreadsheet Part A Design and use a spreadsheet to help Miss White keep track of monthly payments made by 10 pupils in her group. The spreadsheet must keep a monthly record of individual payments, a running total for each pupil, an outstanding balance per pupil, the overall total collected each month and the average amount per pupil collected each month. The overall cost of the trip is 500 per pupil and this amount should be collected between the end of September and the end of March, with no collections made in December. No pupil pays more than 100 in any month. Make sure you show the design of the spreadsheet and consider the layout carefully before entering data. Print the spreadsheet showing the formula used the actual data used Flights Spreadsheet Part B As the tour company only offer transport from England the school has to organise flights to London and back at the start and end of the trip. There are several airports and flight companies offering fares, to various airports in the London area. Research the flight costs from Belfast International Airport as well as Belfast City Airport and present them in a spreadsheet showing the total cost for 50 pupils and 5 staff and average cost per pupil. You may confine the research to three airlines such as Easyjet, BMI, British Airways or any other of your choice. This is a group booking. Therefore you may consider all pupils as children and all staff as adults when researching fares. The unit cost per child may simply be multiplied by 50 instead of considering group rates. The same applies to staff. Print out the spreadsheet showing all relevant data collected. Show the results in another suitable form. Part C Write a report on the research, design and production of The Flights Spreadsheet. 12

17 HELP NOTES PAYMENTS SPREADSHEET In order to make the spreadsheet of reasonable length, pupils may select one teacher s group for the PAYMENTS SPREADSHEET and enter the data for that group only rather than the full group of 50 pupils. FLIGHTS SPREADSHEET For the FLIGHTS SPREADSHEET consider the inward flight to be 10 days after the outward flight. In order to keep the assignment suitable for pupils in future years it will be necessary for the classroom teacher to supply dates for travelling ( I suggest Easter holiday time as a possibility), as well as departure/return times. When looking for flight costs pupils may consider prices for individuals (pupils and staff) to be the same as for group bookings. Thus the cost found can be simply multiplied by the respective number travelling to find out the total cost involved. 13
