Guidance for the REA Project 1. Start by designing an REA Model, complete with cardinalities. The model will tell you what tables you need, the cardinalities will tell you what links are required between the tables. When I grade the project I begin with the model, matching it link by link to the Access implementation. I find the Access implementation of the model by reviewing the relationship grid. 2. The REA Model cardinalities must match the Access relationship grid. If they do not, I stop grading the project. 3. REA projects that earn the A grade seem to fall into 2 groups: Those with complicated REA models, that are implemented correctly, or simple models with heavy data analysis (queries, reports, graphs and ratios). 4. I then check the data in each table. Is it correct, does it follow the guidance of the text, has the table been rigged to make it work? How is the table designed, how is it linked? How much data does it have, what kind of data does it have?
