Students have gained basic skills in programming, covering (among other things) instructions, variables, types, control structures, classes, methods and arrays.
The tutorials are dedicated to hands-on programming experience. You will get help and feedback on your work during the tutorial. The tutorials consist usually of two parts: tutorial questions and programming assignments.
The first part will recapitulate material covered in lectures. Some tutorial questions require you to program, but there are other exercises too. You should learn that hacking away on a keyboard is only a small part of what it takes to create a good program. The second part requires you to apply new material to your own problem; your own animated creature.
Your program for week 4 of the tutorials will be assessed in week 5. This assessment contributes 10% to your final mark.
Multiple Choice Exam
The multiple choice exam at the end of the module will test your understanding of the theory that you practiced during the tutorials, and that was covered in the lectures. The exam contributes with 30% to your final mark.
Programming Sports Day
In week 8 of this course there is a one-day, full-day workshop called Programming Sports Day. During this day you will work in a small team, to develop an idea from its initial stages to completion. Part of Programing Sports is to also present your idea, your design, and have it subjected to peers for testing and evaluation. This one-day workshop contributes 10% to the final mark.
To finish the programming component you will have to do a final assessment. For the final assessment student will have to submit a program and a write-up. Additionally, all students will be interviewed individually to determine whether they reached the learning objectives. All components of the final assignment, the write-up, program, and oral exam, will be marked as one; there won’t be marks for the individual parts. The final assignment contributes 50% to your final mark.
