DPS907 WSA500 Test 1 is Mon Oct 18

October 18, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

You will have a test today. It will test you on web services programming. The test will have a written portion, and a programming portion (done on a classroom computer).


Prepare for today’s test

Ask yourself two questions:

Can I explain?

Can I do?

If you can answer “yes” to both, you’re prepared.


Coming up in DPS907 / WSA500

Wed Oct 20 – return to studying WCF WebHTTP Services

Week of Oct 25 – study week – no classes or labs (consider attending FSOSS)


Test 1 is today

Test 1 is Monday October 18.

It is worth 10% of your final course grade, and will be a mixed-format test – there will be a written portion, and a programming portion.

It will cover web services programming; all topics from the beginning of the course until now.

You may be asked about factual information, as well as concepts, which will give you an opportunity to demonstrate reasoning, analysis, and synthesis skills.

Written portion – The question types will include short answer, multiple choice, sequencing, and so on.

Programming portion – You will create program solutions that meet some specifications.

You cannot use online resources for the written portion of the test. Your computer must be off when you are answering the questions on the written portion. I will try to manage this situation by offering you the choice of which portion (written or programming) to do first.

Best wishes on the test.


Reference material and resources

The following lists the reference resources which are permitted and those which are not allowed.


  • Written portion – one reference sheet; see the “Reference Sheet Guidelines” in the policies and standards section of the DPS907 Policies & Standards document
  • Programming portion – the same reference sheet; you can also use online sources as a reference

Not allowed:

  • Written portion – online resources, or digital devices

Pay attention to the note about the reference sheet. Do NOT copy/paste my notes etc. At the beginning of the test, I will inspect your reference sheet, and reserve the right to disallow its usage.


Reminder about DPS907 Policies & Standards

This is a reminder: Review the DPS907 Policies & Standards. In particular, make sure you read and understand the information about “Tests and Other Graded Work”.
