Hello, I'm new to programming and I want to make a quiz game for year 11 GCSE students. I know the basics of python but I don't really know how to start something from scratch, any resources would be helpful

also, I have been following https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/A-leve...oject/Analysis but i'm not sure how much of it is relevant to my project.

P.S how do I draw a data flow diagram I've looked them up but they just seem so confusing.

Thank you

I would probably use pygame. Watch a youtuber called sentdex, he has tutorials on how to use it. Some of the stuff won't be relevant but it will teach you how to use pygame well so you will know what to do.

Hey Deguy, I actually finished my project just before the Christmas holidays, and I also did a test program for year 11 students (to test their knowledge of binary, hex, and octal bases and store their stats in a file for reading by an admin).

For the project, it is based mostly upon following the process of the systems life cycle, so choose a language you are confident in.

As for DFD diagrams, these are used to show how data "flows" through a system, i.e. where do the inputs come from? What processing is done on the data? Who interacts with the system?

DFDs have three important features: Entities, Processing and Data Stores. Entities are people or organisations who put data into the system for processing. The data stores hold the result of processing, and can be paper-based or computerised. It is important to label each data flow with what data is flowing at that point.

For more of an explanation, these are also in the OCR A2 ICT syllabus as well as OCR A2 Computing. Here is a link to a good explanation:

Hope this helps and good luck with your project :]
