What will I learn on this module?

During this module you will further develop your problem solving, programming and program design skills, introduced in the module KV4000, Programming. You will learn the principles, knowledge and skills to utilise the object-oriented programming paradigm; using an appropriate programming language to design and write object-oriented programs to process text files and build graphical user interfaces (GUIs).

How will I learn on this module?

You will be introduced to programming concepts and will then complete programming exercises based on them in combined lecture/practical classes to help you understand the concepts and gain programming skills. A further practical class will also be provided to help you to further develop your problem solving programming skills. There will also be a surgery session each week for students requiring further tuition.

How will I be supported academically on this module?

The combined lecture/practical classes will allow you to practice concepts as they are being taught and the further practical session will help you to practice these in some depth. Study materials and solutions to exercises will be made available via, the eLP (electronic learning portal) blackboard. You will be given advice and feedback on your work and progress on practical exercises during the timetabled classes.

What will I be expected to read on this module?

All modules at Northumbria include a range of reading materials that students are expected to engage with. The reading list for this module can be found at: http://readinglists.northumbria.ac.uk
(Reading List service online guide for academic staff this containing contact details for the Reading List team – http://library.northumbria.ac.uk/readinglists)

What will I be expected to achieve?

Knowledge & Understanding:
1. Demonstrate understanding of the principles underlying the object-oriented paradigm to design and provide solutions to problems.
2. Identify and apply predefined classes in the development of object-oriented programs

Intellectual / Professional skills & abilities:
3. Design and develop Object-Oriented solutions to simple programming problems
4. Develop basic graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to allow users to interact with a programming solution.

Personal Values Attributes (Global / Cultural awareness, Ethics, Curiosity) (PVA):

How will I be assessed?

Formative assessment
There are various ways for you and the tutors to assess and monitor your progress. During workshop sessions, your tutors will examine your work and offer suggestions, corrections and advice. They may also ask you questions and hold discussions to evaluate your understanding.

Summative assessment
Your mark for the module will be based on your work in two summative assessments.

1. Workbook of specific programming exercises, enabling the recording of those tasks and assessment on a continuous basis (30%). This will address Module Learning Outcomes 3 and 4
2. An exam (70%). This will address Module Learning Outcomes 1 and 2

Written feedback will be provided on the assessments.
