Outcome Assessment Strategies
Students will complete software projects comprised of an object-oriented design, implementation, and test plan.
- Designs will demonstrate the use of good object-oriented design principles including encapsulation and information hiding.
- The implementation will demonstrate the use of a variety of basic control structures including selection and repetition; classes and objects in a tiered architecture (user interface, controller, and application logic layers); primitive and reference data types including composition; basic AWT components; file-based I/O; and one-dimensional arrays.
- Test plans will include test cases demonstrating both black box and glass box testing strategies.
