Assignment #1: ER Modeling

Here are the assignment instructions.

Use ERDPlus to complete the assignment. It is pretty straightforward to use, but this handy video shows you how to create an ERD and export the diagram as a graphic. That graphic can then be inserted into a Microsoft Word document.

Remember, you must submit a single Microsoft Word document – if you send multiple files, you will not get credit for the assignment.

The assignment is due by the start of class on May 25, 2017.
