Each project team of 10 or more students is required to submit artefacts detailing their project management, analysis and design. Each team will be asked to make a number of presentations during the year that are not assessed but will be used to give feedback.

Assessment Components

Each individual student’s mark will be made up of the following components:

  1. A team mark (70%) based on the performance assessed for each of the sprints during the year (4x15%) and team presentations (10%).
  2. An individual mark (30%) based on the students’ individual contributions to the team submission (20%) and individual submissions for professional development (10%). There is a 50% hurdle on the individual component (to pass the subject at least 15 out of the 30 will be required for the individual component).

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are assessed based on the contributions to project throughout the year.

  • Four team submissions using software tools during the year (15% each, 50 hours each per student, for a total of 200 hours). (Of the 80%, 60% will be assessed on team contribution, 20% on individual contribution). Due at the end of Semester 1, and at the end of weeks 4, 8, and 12 of Semester 2 or as modified by the coordinator (80%).
  • Two team presentations (25 hours per student). Due at the end of Semesters 1 and 2 (10%)
  • Individual submissions for professional development (25 hours). Spaced throughout the year. (10%)

Hurdle: To pass this subject, students must obtain at least 15 out of the 30 in their individual component and obtain at least 50% overall.
