I am starting to work towards my second I.C.T project which is basically to find an organization and create a database for the. I hae found an organization but i am finding it hard to find any resources to help me online. I am having the most trouble in creating interview questions and the analysis stage.
I'm not a fan of coursework and i'm also finding it hard to choose a subject, so thanx for the help!!!
I am american and I am studying abroad here in England. I study IT english and geography. I am completely lost in the IT course work...we don't have anything like this...any help please???
you do not have to make it a real organisation, how does the teacher know or the examining board in that case?
you can do things such as music rentals, library, video rentals, that sort of thing.. you just have to fill the criteria of the coursework.
I must say they do expect real end user testing and you get bonus marks for the manuals. if any one wants help give me a shout. i did it last year and got 95 out 120 from the examning board, 1 mark of an A grade. gutted though my teacher gave me 113 and she is strict, as her marks are generally put up by the board. never mind, it was meant to be ....
I'm doing Computing, so surprisingly I have to do a database too. Now then, Dbforum is a good place to ask database related questions, both technical and none technical.
When I started mine 2 months ago, I didn't ask that many questions. You basically go into the office and ask them to show you what they have got. Then ask them to show you what the current system can do. Then you ask them to draw up a specification list and during the interview, you have to present something that you think can be improved. If you decide to use Extreme Programming then you don't have to worry to much about the first interview.
Note: I hate Database, why do we have to do design a database as our project? Why can't we just do some other things. Like graphics or something useful.
true, but more money can be made on OSes. Database is just boring...Doh!
i've gotta do a database to, but my problem is finding a company whose database needs improving. urrghh. n.e one know a good business?
i did my AS ict last summer and got A for both courseworks, and then A and an E (something went wrong there.....) for the exams.
once you know what to do for your coursework it's actually REALLY REALLY simple to get full marks. all you have to do is follow the specification step by step. and really step by step. just write up everything they ask you too.
i use the heinemann book ict for edexcel and for each coursework task it includes the specification. i think all books have that.....
because i got A for the courseworks, my little exam mess-up (the lovely E) didn't matter that much and i got a B overall.
