Project Guidelines

Project Requirements

The project must integrate content from the computer science curriculum. For example, developing a mobile application that connects to a customer database would integrate concepts from Data Structures, Web Programming, and Databases.

Each student will complete a 10-page (minimum) project report that provides background information, design goals, and a detailed description of the project. A draft of that report must be submitted for feedback and the appropriate revisions made in the final report. In the last week of the course, students will present their projects to the class. The major milestones in the project are listed on the course syllabus.

Project Rubric

The following rubric will be used for both the draft and final report:

A level

B level

C level

D level

At the end of the course, each student will give a 20- to 25-minute oral presentation on his or her project. This presentation will be graded on its organization, its clarity in describing the project, and the student's effectiveness as a presenter (e.g., clear speaking voice, eye contact).
