Your Grading System


Your Assignment


It’s your job to formulate the questions to be as clear as possible. There isn’t too much editing to do. There are a few questions that could stand some clarification. The bigger challenge is to decide which field type you will use in for each question.

Limit your font and colour usage as much as possible. Build it on a letter-sized sheet.

Save your document the usual way:

Appleseed, Johnny, Group #, Form Design.indd

Once you’re done, use the File > Package… feature to gather assets related to the file. Because you’ve only used Adobe Fonts, there will be no fonts in the package folder.

Add your fillable form PDF file to the folder. Replace the existing PDF, if there is one in the folder.

Make sure the folder is named properly before you zip-compress it. Submit it on Brightspace.

Send for Signature

In addition to submitting your assignment on Brightspace, you’ll send it to me filled in and signed.


Fill out your own form as if you were the respondent. Sign it once you’re done. Use the Send and Track functionality to send it to my email address.


Once you hit Send and Track, all you need to do is choose to Send Personalized Invitations.


Enter the e-mail address, then fill in the message fields. Once you’re done, click Send.

What you'll submit:


Make sure your InDesign document is named LastName-FirstName-#-Assignment-Name. # is your group number So,

Appleseed-Johnny-1-Acrobat Forms.indd

Check your font usage to only include Adobe Fonts. To do so, go Type > Find Fonts . There should only be Adobe Fonts in the list.

Check your image usage in the Links panel. Make sure there are no warning icons in the panel.

Once this is done, save your document, then package it using File > Package . The resulting folder will already be named properly. Zip-compress the folder by right-clicking on it, then choosing Compress... .


Failure to submit your files as directed will incur a proportional loss of points. If your file/folder is not named with your name, you will earn a zero. Why?
