Writing up your project Having finished work on your software artefact (PJE40) or research (PJS40), you now need to make sure that the project report contains everything it should, as this is what is marked. Other documents on Moodle explain how you should bind and submit the project and how it is marked. Your supervisor will be giving you specific advice about your project report; this document contains general tips on what is expected in the report. More advice is in the presentation slides on Moodle. Marking scheme The marking schemes for PJE40 and PJS40 are on Moodle and show the assessment categories and grade band descriptors that supervisors and moderators use when marking your project. If you look at the categories, you will see that they contain questions which can act as a guide to what should be in the report. The grade band descriptors can also be used as a guide. There doesn’t need to be a one -to-one correspondence between category and chapter in your report, but there should be evidence that all categories have been covered. Note that the highly weighted categories usually have a chapter to themselves. For Engineering projects, the British Computer Society (which validates our degrees) needs at least the following sections to be of pass quality for a project to meet their criteria: Requirements Design Implementation Evaluation Structure of a report Generic chapters for the project report are below. You can also check out School of Computing projects on the library website for examples, especially where students have done something slightly different for their particular projects. The notes are suggestions as to what should be in each chapter. More information is in the project lecture slides on Moodle. Engineering Project Introduction (can be based on the PID lays out problem/task to be addressed) Literature Review (recent, good sources, relevant to your topic) Methodology & project management (what SDLC used, what project management techniques used, and how successful they have been) Requirements (can include elicitation, analysis and specification) Design (should cover all aspects of the artefact) Implementation (how the development went, not just an account of what the artefact does) Testing and evaluation (formal testing, evaluation against requirements and user evaluation if appropriate) Conclusion (reflective writing about the success of the project, what you have learned, what is left to do)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
