(Understand how to use the location line setting.) Place a wall using different Option Settings. (Understand how to use the Options Settings when placing a wall.) After placing the wall, place a dimension to determine if the wall was placed correctly. After placing the wall, inspect the element properties to determine if the wall was placed correctly.

In the Associate exam, the user will need to be familiar with the different parameters in walls and compound walls. The user should also know which options are applied to walls and when those options are available.
