Learning Outcomes:
Design, implement, and document (appropriately) efficient algorithms for a C application using a structured approach to programming. Explain and apply the concept of a procedural programming paradigm and apply the associated design principles to a range of problem solutions. Illustrate the use of C as both an application and a systems programming language by being able to design, implement, and document efficient algorithms for a C application. Explain the structure, correct use of and implementation of appropriate advanced data structures for a range of scenarios.

1.0INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT DESCRIPTION


For IT Programme Design and develop Student Information Management System for an institution. This system will be used by the administrative staff to maintain the records of students. The users should be able to add new student, edit, delete and search information of students. Some of the following details of each student are recorded: - Student Number Name National Identification Card Number Gender Date of birth Contact Number Nationality

You may include other relevant details if appropriate. For CGD Programme Design and develop a program which allows a user to play Word Jumble game. In this game, ensure your program gives a set of scrambled letters. The player is required to rearrange the scrambled letter into a valid word. You should limit number of guess made by player. The program should display the result of the game by displaying the players guess is correct or incorrect.

For Engineering Programme Design and develop a program to illustrate a combinational circuit with three inputs x, y, and z, and three outputs A, B and C. If the binary input is 0, 1, 2, or 3; the binary

output is one greater than the input. If the binary input is 4, 5, 6, or 7; the binary output is one less than the input. You may use below diagram as a guideline.

2.0REQUIREMENTS
i. You are required to carry out extra research for your system and document any logical assumptions you made after the research. Your program should use symbolic constants where appropriate. Validations need to be included to ensure the accuracy of the system. State any assumptions that you make under each function. Your program must be modular, user-friendly using programming techniques that you have learnt. You may include any extra features which you may feel relevant and that add value to the system. The menus could be modified in order to facilitate more options. There should be no need for graphics in your program, as what is being assessed, is your programming skill not the interface design. The marking scheme for the assignment has been provided so that you clearly know how the assessment for this assignment would be done. You should include the good programming practice such as comments, variable initialisation, naming conventions and indentation. In a situation where the students, - Failed to attempt both open assignment test and demonstration, a maximum of 35 marks will be allocated for the overall assignment. - Failed to attempt the assignment demonstration, overall marks awarded for the assignment will be adjusted to 50% of the overall existing marks

3.0DELIVERABLES
You are required to submit: i. First version of design solution worth 15 marks during the lecture class on 28th March 2013. ii. A softcopy of the program coded in C submitted in a CD. The program should include the following: - Basic C concepts such as displaying and reading of text, variables, and assignment of values, comments to explain various parts of the program, etc. - Intermediate C concepts such as control structures selection and iteration control structures, use of arrays single / double scripted, string. - Advanced C concepts such as functions programmer defined and library functions, pointers, structures, unions, linked list and files. - Any other features of C that has not been covered. A documentation of the system, that incorporates basic documentation standards such as header and footer, page numbering and which includes - Cover page - Table of contents - Introduction and assumptions - Design of the program (original and updated versions) using pseudocode or flowcharts which adheres to the requirements provided above - Explanation of C programming concepts applied with sample segment of source code from the system created. - Additional features which have been incorporated in the solution in terms of design and C codes (sample segment of source code from the system created) - Sample outputs when the program is executed with some explanation of the outputs of the program - Conclusion - References Harvard Name Referencing CD Content Documentation file (.doc file if using Ms-Word) Program / Source files (.c files) Header files (.h files) - optional Executable file (.exe file) Binding and Submission - The documentation (attached with the CD) must be comb bound and submitted to the Academic Administration on the due date latest by 7.00 p.m.

5.0PERFORMANCE CRITERIA
Distinction (75% and above) This grade will be assigned to work which meets all of the requirements stated in the question. The program runs smoothly when executed. There is clear evidence and application of C concepts up to advanced level. The program solution is unique with excellent coding styles and validation. The program implemented maps completely against the design (pseudo code/flowchart) as seen in the documentation. The design of the solution varies in styles and has unique logic with hardly any errors / omissions. The documentation does not have any missing components. Sample outputs documented have clear explanation. All work is referenced according to Harvard Name Referencing convention.
