Software development outcomes
Software Development Outcomes

  • U3O1 - In response to a design brief, produce documentation of the analysis of an information problem in the form of software requirements specifications. 40 marks.

  • Using Unified Modelling Language software to create use case diagrams

    Need to know:

    • Context diagrams

    • Data flow diagrams

    • System and organisational goals and objectives

    • Software Requirements Specifications (SRS)


Software development
Software Development

  • SD U3O2 - In response to software requirements specifications create a prototype solution to meet a specific need. 60 marks.

  • Using Visual Basic 2010 Express

    Need to Know:

  • Programming

  • Algorithms

  • Pseudocode

  • Data dictionaries

  • Test tables

  • Internal documentation


Software development1
Software Development

  • U4O1 - A solution (including internal documentation) for use on a mobile device, which takes into account technical and legal requirements in response to a design brief. 45 marks

  • Documentation and an explanation of how security and legal matters are managed when creating solutions. Use a written report or a test. 15 marks

    Need to know:

    • Programming

    • Designing interfaces

    • Legal and ethical responsibilities

    • User documentation


Software development2
Software Development

  • SD U4O2 - Recommend and justify strategies for evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of solutions that operate in a networked environment. Format: a test. 40 marks

    Need to know:

So...

  • Only 2 outcomes are based on programming

  • Does give us time to build skills before U3O2 begins

  • Practise programming regularly

  • Great programming skill is not necessary: pretty basic functions will suffice, for example

    • Creating interfaces

    • Data input

    • Information output

    • Basic calculations

    • 1 dimensional arrays

    • Writing and reading data files

    • Debugging techniques

Exam

  • All outcomes contribute 50% to total score.

  • Exam is the other 50%.

  • 2 hours

  • All theory, no computers!

  • A = 20 multiple choice

  • B = 20 short answer

  • C = 60 case study questions
