Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module will be delivered using a combination of lectures, practicals and tutorials. The practicals offer the students a chance to practice their programming skills (LOs 1,3)and the tutorials (LOs 2,4) will be used to emphasise those aspects of software development which need discussion and debate, such as design and test case design.

Formative Assessment:
To support formative feedback, the Software Engineering subject group utilise a lab based teaching approach across their provision. During these lab sessions, staff will discuss and evaluate student progress and provide feedback on how well they are progressing with their work. All modules in the subject group also require students to demonstrate their coursework on submission to provide further formative feedback on how the work could be improved.

Summative Assessment:
The courseworks are designed to provide evidence of key skills. The first coursework (LO1) will enable early intervention where appropriate. In each case the coursework will include a demonstration of the software which has been developed. This is chance for students to reason about their design and implementation decisions and get immediate feedback. The second coursework (LOs 1-4) will also contain a report detailing the software development process: including design decisions, implementation issues and test cases.
