Computer Science Design Project Final Report
The last class meeting of the tenth week a joint final project report is due.
This is a professional written item composed and reworked by all
the participants in the group project. It can cover many different
objectives: choice of the approach to take is completely up to the
project team members. Some possibilities are: design description;
documenting work done so it can be continued; system description; market
research for a product; analysis to enable further efforts.
While some parts of the work can have been designed in greater detail, the
report should have an overall unity. It should be something you can
deliver to a potential sponsor. There should be an abstract or executive
summary - an overview paragraph or page. That and an introduction should
be free of technical terms (jargon) and clear to an ordinary person.
The course grade is more than half derived from the team written project
report grade. Hence the system used to rate the report is worth review.
It is available at Evaluate. Other items that
contribute to the overall grade include an eleventh week team
demonstration or oral presentation.
