Five network management categories that make up the FCAPS model.

Write a two and one half page report providing a brief description of the five network management categories that make up the FCAPS model.

Below is a grading rubric and the detailed requirements for this paper.

Category Points Description
Length 5 Papers must be two and one half pages in length, use a 12 point font, be double spaced, and be in your words. You can reference and quote from your references, but those additions do not count towards your two and one half page requirement.
Content 10 Papers must be in your words and cover the research topic given for the week. You can reference and quote from your references, but those additions do not count towards your two and one half page requirement. Using cut/paste and quotes that are not referenced and presented as your work will result in point deductions. Paraphrases and quotes can add value if they are referenced. However, they do not count towards your minimum two and one half page length requirement.
Graphics 3 Graphics from websites need to be included and referenced properly. Graphics do not count toward the length requirement.
References and APA Format 12 The paper must conform to APA format. In addition, at least two references are required. Note that Wikipedia is not an acceptable reference. Also, the textbook cannot be your only reference in a technical paper; it is a nice place to start, but you need something else to count as a reference.
Total 30 A quality paper will meet or exceed all of the above requirements.
