Create an evaluation matrix in Excel that will let you compare the 3 careers side by side on each criterion. Refer to the tutorial presentation about creating an evaluation matrix if needed.
Create an Annotated Bibliography
Read the information on this site which is the Evaluating Sources, Evaluating Websites section of the Research Tutorial. Look at your sources from Step 1 and see how they meet the five basic evaluation criteria. Replace those sources that might not be high quality.
Item Step 3: Create a Bibliography
Create a bibliography (reference page) using the Word references feature. Include each of your sources. Here’s the link from GCFLearnFree on How to create a bibliography or works cited page in Word. https://www.gcflearnfree.org/word-tips/how-to-create-a-bibliography-or-works-cited-page-in-word/1/
Managing your references will be much easier if you use the same computer; but if you plan to work in different locations, you will need to move your sources. Here is a link that explains how to move bibliography sources:
Item Step 4: Create an Annotated Bibliography
You are required to use your sources as evidence in this research paper. You will need to synthesize what you have read and then write your paper. Read the GCFLearnFree.org tutorial Use Information Correctly, Putting Info Together. Create an annotated bibliography to force yourself to read each source and take notes on what information will be needed to support the facts in your paper (career salaries, ethical issue related to new technology, etc). See a sample annotated bibliography in Blackboard.

S. (1993). Gender swapping on the Internet. Proceedings of INET ’93.Retrieved from http://www.cc.gatech.edu/elc/papers/bruckman/gender-swapping-bruckman.pdfIn this brief analysis, Bruckman investigates the perceptions of males and females in electronic environments.She argues that females (or those posing as females) receivean inordinate amount of unwanted sexual attention and offersof assistance from males. She also suggests that females (andsexually unthreatening males) are welcomed more willinglythan dominant males into virtual communities. She concludesthat behavior in electronic forums is an exaggerated reflectionof gender stereotypes in real-life communication. The article is interesting and accessible, but it is quite old, and it reliesalmost entirely on quotations from four anonymous forum participants.Crowston, C., & Kammerer, E. (1998).

The findings, while limited, provide evidence thatin fact bothwomen and men were less interested in joiningforums that were dominated by masculine-style language.These findings seem to contradict the pronounced gender inequality found in the other sources in this bibliography.Herring, S. C. (2003). Gender and power in on-line communication. In J. Holmes & M. Meyerhoff (Eds.), Thehandbook of language and gender(pp. 202-228). Oxford, England: Blackwell. Herring investigates empowerment opportunities forwomen online. She points out that, although more than halfof Web users in the United States are women, men continue to dominate technical roles such as network administrators,programmers, and Web masters. Even in anonymous onlinesettings, males tend to dominate discussions. And online“anonymity,” argues Herring, may not really be possible: Writing style and content give off cues about gender. Herring concludes that “the Internet provides opportunitiesfor both male and female users, but does not appear to alter societal gender stereotypes, nor has it (yet) redistributedpower at a fundamental level” (p. 219). The essay is well written and well researched, and it includes a long list of useful references.Herring, S. C. (1994, June 27).

Step 1: Criteria
Each class will set their own criteria and your instructor will post these into Blackboard under Phase 3. Most classes will use salary, education, passion, etc.; but you need to make sure you are using the exact criteria for your class. You will use the criteria to evaluate your careers.
Item Class Criterias for Phase 3
All Students must use these criterias. See Below.
Item Step 2: Evaluation Matrix
Create an evaluation matrix in Excel that will let you compare the 3 careers side by side on each criterion. Refer to the tutorial presentation about creating an evaluation matrix if needed. What should be in the matrix is the 3 careers, the criteria to be used, how you personally weigh each criterion. Divide 100 points among the criteria, with the highest number of points going to the criteria that is most important to you.
