This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to create simple applications through introductory programming techniques.
It applies to those who have responsibility for creating applications and includes applying language syntax, control structures to create code, using programming standards, testing and debugging.
Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit’s learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.
Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:
*design and build one simple application according to programming standards and program specifications.
In the course of the above, the candidate must:
*apply programming language syntax, sequence, selection and iteration constructs
*document changes and tests performed
*review code according to feedback obtained during design and development of application.
The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the VU Polytechnic and/or via the Victoria University Polytechnic e-learning system.
