    Same here for design, the alternative solutions thing do you just have to include spreadsheets and website if i chose to do a database?
    I did 4 alternative solutions for database. I did spreadsheet, html, paper-based and database. I need to get at least an A on this coursework and I just don't trust my teachers marking! Do you know how to do a test plan? Apparently your supposed to divide it up in to functional, system and user testing!?

    i did data flow diagrams for analysis and delieverables section. I produced them all in word, but they were copied up from ones which I had hand drawn. I did like a context diagram, and then level 1, 2 and 3 data flow diagrams. I even did a data dictionairy and still got only 2 marks for processes :/ I have a feeling my teacher could be doing it on purpose. To be honest, at this point in time is to vital not to waste time word processing diagrams which are complicated. If i was in your position I would draw them out by hand neatly and then scan them in. Time now is to precious to be wasting hours on unnecessary things. This coursework has stressed me so much. I'm literally doing all of section 4 tonight and have got to create a user guide to. When you get in to it it's not actually that hard. I'm just aiming for 11 on section 4. Evaluation is easy, going for 7 marks. 12 on each section = A grade.

    all my hand drawings im going to put in to a seperate section at the end of the project report. And yes 56 is an A, but out of 70 in terms of raw mark for each section, in total you need 54 out of 70 = A grade.
    Therefore anything higher is great. I think I will get about 60 out of 70, so hopefully when converted to UMS that should give me something like 77/80, so a top A. And today I started section 4, a did a bit of testing. Going to finish the complete section tomorrow, it's not really hard, just using exemplar materials. Then a user guide after.

    How are you getting on with Unit 3 revision? We did it in January and did badly. Have you started revison, I have only done 2 chapters so far and got loads to cover. Gotta ace that paper!!

    I stopped doing this coursework so i can revise, starting again on friday. Still on the test plan... for the description of proposed system i think you just have to say what the system should do and how it meets the clients requirements. For the scope urm that ones a bit confusing i just wrote again what the system should do and how its better than the manual one and include external and internal constraints such as external can be the data protection act as you need to protect the personal data of the users and internal can be things such as the users not having the experience with database so they need to have training....you sort of get into it after you get past the confusing bits

    ## The scope and description of proposed system isn't to bad. I created at a table to show what the system will and will not do. I then have problems with the current system and then produced a context diagram. then i did internal and external contraints of the system . I have benefits of the system on the organisation and how it will impact the organisation, again in table. a paste from e.g. Benefits on the organisation Impact on the organisation
    1. The system will speed up processes such as entering new student data The Business Studies department will run more smoothly, efficiently, and have increased reliability.

    hows everyone doing now?
    I went in to sixth form the other day to go through mine with the teacher. He looked through all my testing. He wasn't happy with the fact all tests were successful and bascially called it superficial. What i have to do know is make a few tests fail and evidence it, thus being able to critique the system in the evaluation section. Well that's what my teacher wants anyway. He is also making me add print screens of the entire system before I actually show the testing and then he wants a detailed user guide!! I'm gna have to do all this by Friday and then evaluation Saturday! The bank holiday on Monday doesn't help, loosing lessons! It's so much work getting this A! I'm literally getting up early everyday and revising loads, and then doing coursework. Hopefully the hardwork will pay off!
    And i have yet to go back in to it all and makes changes!
