Intermediate demonstration (10%)

Demonstrate your evolving application.

  1. Brief description of problem being solved (1 mark according to clarity)
  2. Explain planned solution (2 marks according to clarity of explanation)
  3. Demonstrate working components and their interaction (5 marks according to completeness)
  4. Outline steps to complete artefact (2 marks according to clarity and feasibility)

Requirements for the demonstration (40%)

Ensure your web application is in the specified format when submitted.

Requirements for the coursework report (40%)

The coursework report should be no longer than 1800 words in length (approx four A4 pages).

The coursework report should reflect on what you have done and provide advice that might be useful to someone doing a similar project in the future. Your report will normally contain the following:

Title

Something that describes what your coursework is about.

Introduction

A brief description of the aims and objectives of the coursework.

Design

Briefly describe the key components. Include at least one diagram showing the flow of information between the components that make up the artefact. Highlight and justify your design choices.

Implementation and testing

Describe your experiences implementing the artefact. Here you should briefly discuss your choice of development tools, highlight areas of development that were particularly tricky, and explain how you overcame problems. You should also outline how you tested the components that make up your artefact.

Summary

Summarise what you have undertaken in the coursework. In particular highlight the good and bad design and technology decisions that you made. Conclude by briefly discussing an alternative approach that could have potentially been taken with the benefit of hindsight.

References

Cite about four or five key sources of information (e.g. books, papers or URLs) that were most useful for the coursework.
