Microsoft Excel is a wonderful tool used for data entry and management, charting and graphing, programming, task management, and more. Used across multiple career fields, you or your students will likely need to know how to utilize Microsoft Excel. This FREE step-by-step Excel tutorial for beginners teaches students how to use conditional formatting to make a study guide.
Students begin with an Excel sheet that contains a list of vocabulary definitions and a word bank. They are prompted to type in the correct word for the first definition, and they discover that the cell will turn green! If they type in the wrong word, it will turn white. What's going on here? Well, this sheet is using conditional formatting!
Only the first few definitions have conditional formatting applied. The rest of the column is unformatted. Students learn how to program these cells to also turn green if the correct answer is typed into the cell.
