Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Lectures provide introductory material for each project, problem solving practice is integrated into laboratory structure. Programming techniques and theory are presented in lectures. Supervised practicals on a PC cluster room provide experience of writing programming and using PC’s with help available.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Computer assessment||1||M||85||4 Programming Assignments (Assig. 1 = 10%, Assig. 2 = 35%, Assig. 3 = 20% and Assig. 4 = 20%)|
|Practical/lab report||1||M||15||5 minute lab demonstration|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The laboratory sessions provide the opportunity for the students to demonstrate their understanding of
the practical construction and test activities. The problem solving aspects of the assessment enable the students to demonstrate that they are able to apply this understanding and their analysis and synthesis skills to novel situations.
