This week rather than research or discussion we’ll download and install appraisal software we canuse to generate the appraisal report for the course. Post a message confirming you’re set up once you have the software successfully downloaded and installed on your PC (or Mac with Windows or emulation software).
Below is the email containing the details; this is the most popular appraisal software in use and this year they’ve allowed us to give students a full featured version to use for our course work. There are a number of good training videos to get you started; the first one is a full walk through of creating a report (some parts were done with their ‘TOTAL 2011’ version – a few buttons and features have changed but it should be very helpful). I’ve put two other links togetting started videos below that showing the download process and overview of the software and the email and web site have additional pdf documents for reference:
