The presentation should include: 1. If you are not enjoying the stimulation of being involved in a major piece of work then see the project co-ordinator. which will normally consist of: a) a 15-minute assessed presentation. and one or more other members of an academic staff. Self-motivation is an important aim of the project and it will be accessed. Plans for future work.3 Final presentation/Viva: The student will formally present his/her project to a panel of at least two members. one member of the student’s PMP (who may be the supervisor).1. 2. a review of the progress to date in relation to the project plan. The presentation/Viva panel will normally consist of the project supervisor. an outline of the project.1 Interim Presentation: The interim presentation will: a) provide a fixed point in the academic year at which students must demonstrate the progress made.0 Page 2 . b) enable students to practice presentation skills.2 Final Demonstration: The final project demonstration. External examiners are also invited to attend this session. Presentations and Demonstrations 1. This project is individual project. supervisor and PMP member(s) to assess the quality and completeness of the resultant product together with your presentation ability.

Acknowledgements It is usual to insert an acknowledgement of any person who has played a significant part in the project or preparation of the report. Binding The main report should be bound separately but appendices can be grouped together. Typing Typing should be double spaced on A4 with a 1 ½ inch left margin and 1 inch right margin. Number of Copies Two copies of the main report and appendices must be provided for the School. This should include detailed technical specification. Net. Computer output should be trimmed where possible to A4 size. Computer listings may be added but must be paged correctly to allow ease of reading. All diagrams should be drawn using black ink. test data and results. Ensure each item has a title.0 Page 4 .IT204 Visual Basic Project An abstract should be provided with the report.

Readers can appreciate and tell it nature of job handling. All conditions and selections are properly described and the hierarchy is correctly shown Modularity • Each module in the program is correctly represented and in the correct place on the diagram. a clear list is provided of all global variables and these are easily distinguished from local variables. Meaningful Object names • All identifiers /objects have meaningful names. Modularity is extracted because Visual Basic is dealing with objects rather than modules. It should be worked efficiently. Design View or VisData which allow implementation of coding. decisions and selections. The program is designed so that one main subroutine calls other subroutines and these may in turn call further subroutines and smooth control. Net. Ensure all controls statement within the correct control and the correct component add-ins. Therefore code is embedded in individual object. Correct notation & methods • The diagram is properly drawn with boxes appropriately labeled for iteration for iteration. With additional designed tools like DFD. Mail which is the matter regarding email or mailing services. Standard naming convention • A good attempt has been made to use meaningful name but no table is Page 9 DIT/IT204/project guidelines/V.1.0 . To test the students the ability of using meaningful object names to enhance readability. To test whether the students can identify and apply appropriate events. Meaning identifier Eg. Correct usage of user-defined methods and standard • Program is fully modular and each module is well structured.IT204 Visual Basic Project Structure chart/Pseudocode • Structure chart/Pseudocode/drafted design/JSP clearly shows all stages in the program. Also. to test whether or not the students can use user-defined methods to extend the capability of standard events.

Net. needs a particular kind of printer etc. With good-furnished document Overall presentation & table of content • The project is presented with a good table of contents and each of the major sections clearly identified. Data files should contains a sufficient size of records to demonstrate proper working of systems. Excellent project. Scope and limitation • The documentation clearly shows the range of tasks which the program could be used to complete and makes clear any possible limitations (Will not accept certain data. Clearly set of results presented. There is no irrelevant material included and it is easy to understand. All parts are present and are largely correct.1. completeness of documentation • The project seems to have been developed in an ordered and planned way. Necessary acknowledgments are included (such as sources Page 11 DIT/IT204/project guidelines/V. test cases & test log shown A test plan.0 .IT204 Visual Basic Project the printer.) User guide • User guide is complete and written in such a way that the target user for the system would have no problem in following it Test plan. test data including both likely data and a good selection of extreme data. • Expected result & actual result shown • Expected result matches actual result in most or all cases Conclusion of tests conducted • Sensible conclusion drawn from the testing about what might have gone wrong either in the design 6r the testing process or a statement that all tests worked as expected Documentation layout. Using [Print Screen] key to print and capture screen and paste it on document file. Reasons for choice of test data clearly given together with a clear statement of expected outcome.
