1 CS1022 Computer Programming & Principles Second In-Course Assessment

2 What (1) 20 questions on all topics – Multiple choice (one of many) – Multiple answers (many of many) – Open, numeric answers Random selection of questions and answer options – “Sharing” of experience not so useful... 2 CS1022

3 What (2) A useful “reality check” – A kind of “dry-run” for the exam in January – Which topics require more attention when revising Marking – 2.5 marks per correct answer – No penalty (negative marks) for incorrect answer Don’t lose big picture: – Assessment is worth 12.5% of marks for course – Not the end of your academic career if you don’t do well 3 CS1022

Learn about your limitations, but also find out how to overcome these... 7 CS1022
