What do you expect the print-screen button to do?
It copies the screen as an image to the clipboard so you can paste it directly into a document. If you use Alt+PrintScreen, it copies just the selected window, rather than the whole screen.
If your tutor required this, he should have at least told you how to do it!
Further for console mode applications, you can capture window content as plain text by right-clicking the window title bar, then select Edit->Mark, then select the text with the mouse, then press Enter. The selected text will be placed in teh clipboard as plain text.
