All problems in homework are from the Chapter Review Problems section in the corresponding chapters of the textbook.  Please email your homework to TA. The homework is considered automatically announced at the end of the corresponding chapter. The deadline of homework submission is 24:00 Wednesday of the next week after the announcement.

l  Term Project:

o    Download a guide for the project.

o    Examples of testing projects: [1], [2], [3]

o    Develop and test a program of your choice. 

         Explain why it is worth doing.

         Describe your design with UML concepts.

         Describe how you plan to test it.

         Implement it.  

         Please explain your design with the UML notations.  

         Please explain your test planning. 

         Submit to Microsoft App Store http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/apps ?

o    2 students as a team, a programmer and a tester.

         The programmer and the tester define specification together.

         Then they work in parallel respectively for the program and test plan implementation.

         The two members will be graded separately.

         Change of specification will cause pain between the two members and should be avoided.

o    Checkpoints:

1.        3/5: Registration of the teams

Send the following registration information through emails to the TA.

       team name, member names and their roles

       student ID numbers of the two members

 

2.        3/19: Proposal

Each team presents its proposal in 10mins.

       The powerpoint files fo the presentation are to be sent to the TA via emails.

       Explain your project, argue for it, specify it, show your design, explain how to test it.

3.        4/30: Mid-term project report.

       Submission of the mid-term project report via emails to the TA.

       The report email should have attachment for the program code, test program code, and a test report.

4.        6/11: Final presentation

       Each team makes a 10-min presentation.

       The powerpoint files for the presentation are to be sent to the TA via emails.

       The program, test plan code, and the test report are also to be sent to the TA via emails.

       Explain how your program runs and is sufficiently tested.
