Website Task - Implement the solution

Scalable image

What you have to do (4).

You need to break it down into 5 different sections. This page covers the fourth section.

What to do.

Before you can complete this section it is important to make some choices regarding web editors. For the moment we will stop work on the documents you need to produce and learn a little about web page editors.

Follow this link to a page which will guide you.

Once you have completed this task you will return here and take a look at effects you should avoid in web pages by looking at the 'Bad web page guide' before continuing to produce the web site (opens in a new window).

In the following instructions the bold text will be your headings and subheadings.

Need a tutorial?

This section is worth 12 marks - but - you'll only get these with a completed test plan and designs.

You need to provide evidence that you have actually produced the website . Since it may contain sound and animated graphics you need to state what sound and animation are present. Your teacher will also need to annotate this to document that sound/animation exists.

Before you start creating your pages make sure you read all eight items below!
  1. Create a Word document with the title 'Implementing the solution'
  1. After you write the title save it in your folder 'website coursework'. As you work on this document keep saving it regularly.
  1. Load each page of your website into your web browser and take screenshots by pressing 'Print Screen' on your keyboard. Paste the screenshots into your 'implementing the solution' document. If a web page needs to be scrolled to see all of it then either take multiple screenshots or load the web page directly in Word. See an example
  1. To each page add a description of the purpose of the page. Include a comment on any graphics or other effects you produce for the page.
  1. Provide Evidence that errors have been corrected or developed. Use 3 or 4 annotated printouts
    Write comments about your work directly on the printouts you make. Don't worry about ruining your neat work - this annotation gets you extra marks
    showing the work at different stages. If you produce custom graphics then get screenshots of these at different stages. See an example Animations can be shown frame by frame.
  1. Evidence that the test plan has been carried out. You need to get people's comments on the website before you make improvements. Take screenshots and produce 'PowerPoint handout' style of printout (three screenshots per page) would be a good way of getting this. See an example
  1. Evidence that the presentation is an effective solution to the problem. Get user comments after you improve the presentation. Again use the 'handout' style printouts and get your test subjects to make comments on them. See an example
  1. Print out the test plan you produced earlier and get your teacher or another 'witness' to initial it to show the tests have actually been done.

NB if you don't show evidence of testing then you can only get half marks!

Below is the criteria that the exam board is looking for. It applies to all coursework units and it's not in very 'user friendly' language so for a clearer idea follow the guide above.

Standard Extension Assessment criteria Evidence Notes
0-2 0-3 A project that provides evidence that the software has been used, but bears little or no resemblance to the design and there is little or no evidence of testing.

In order to do this, a student should provide:

Annotated hardcopy evidence of both implementation and testing, showing full details of the implementation process.
  • Whenever appropriate, the hardcopy evidence should be presented as if it had been produced by the user(s) using the system that has been implemented.
  • It is not necessary to enter large amounts of data to simulate use of the implemented system, eg stock control with thousands of records. Approximately 20 realistic records should be adequate to demonstrate the system‘s use.
  • If the final version differs from the original design, students should include some notes as to why the changes were necessary.
  • Students should annotate their hardcopies to show the sequence of development, errors and areas for improvement.
  • Testing should be annotated to show how the expected and actual results compare.
3-4 4-6 A project that provides evidence that the design has been implemented with some omissions. There is evidence that errors have been corrected and some unstructured testing has taken place.
5-6 7-9 A project that provides evidence that the design has been implemented. Error correction has taken place and a test plan has been partially implemented or the test plan is not relevant to the problem.
7-8 10-12 A project with evidence that the design has been fully implemented showing clearly that the problem has been solved. Evidence that all errors have been corrected and that a relevant test plan has been fully implemented.

Done all that?

  • Save your document,
  • Add your name in a header and the filename and path in a footer.
  • Print it and
  • hand it in to be marked.

Before you start the next section make sure you have explored the link 'Choice of web editor' since it will help you in the final exam.

Now you can go on to the next part - Evaluate your solution
