Barry Stanton▸ Task 7 – Testing and Debugging


#exploreTask7

The WA curriculum provides a good starting point for learning goals (for example, see Year 9 Digital Technologies page https://k10outline.scsa.wa.edu.au/home/p-10-curriculum/curriculum-browser/technologies/digital-technologies2#year-9-syllabus).

A sample assessment task, which includes a rubric, provides coverage of all elements of digital solution design (https://k10outline.scsa.wa.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/459891/Technologies-Digital-Technologies-Year-9-Sample-Assessment-Task-Thats-amazing.PDF). The evaluation of testing could be bolstered by making its conduct a more explicit item in the marking guide. I suggest:
– Errors – number of errors revealed in demonstration of final product.
– Coder Testing – Describe the challenges to make the code work and how they where overcome.
– Testing – Demonstrate functionality testing of expected results and issues.
– User Testing – Demonstrate user testing and changes made before submission. How many of the users were unfamiliar with the program?
