DPS923 and MAP523 Midterm Test

Midterm test today.

.

Prepare for the midterm test

Ask yourself two questions:

Can I explain?

Can I do?

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

The DPS923 and MAP523 Midterm Test is today

The Midterm Test is Monday, March 10, during our regularly-scheduled time together.

It is worth 30% 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 iOS programming, up to and including recently-covered topics. 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, similar to what you saw on the quizzes. Your computer must be off when you are answering the questions on the written portion.

Programming portion – You will create (or extend) an iOS application that meets a specification. It will be a simple read-only navigation-based app. It’s likely that you will download and extend an existing app.

For the programming portion, you can use your own computer, or a lab room computer.

Best wishes on the test.
