Total Marks 100 marks
This Subject primarily focuses on the various key processes in requirements engineering, including requirement elicitation, requirement analysis, requirement documentation, requirement validation and requirement management. This assessment requires you to reflect on any requirements engineering practices or processes you applied in your academic, personal and professional life.
Throughout the course of this Subject, you have developed an understanding of the key processes in requirements engineering, the various best practices, tools and techniques used in requirements engineering.
In your academic, personal and professional life, there must have been many requirements imposed upon you by your parents, teachers, lecturers, friends and so on. Some requirements may require you to perform certain tasks, some may be related to how well you should perform those tasks.
Write a 750-word reflection about the way you managed requirements from your academic, personal or professional life. Have you intentionally or unintentionally employed any requirement engineering practices? Would what you learnt in this Subject change how you gather, analysis, document, validate, manage requirements?
If you have work experience relevant to requirement engineering, reflect whether there is anything you would do differently in the future after the completion of this Subject.
A Prezi presentation is developed to help you with reflective writing, which can be found at: https://prezi.com/wm2luwmxudqd/reflective-writing/
General Assessment Requirement
Incomprehensible submissions. Assessments provide the opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to achieve the required standard. To do this, assessment responses need
MIS604_Assess3_WS_310719.Docx Page 1 of 4
to be both clear and easy to understand. If not, the University cannot determine that students have demonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be marked accordingly including the potential for 0 (zero) marks where relevant.
Track changes. If you use Track Changes when writing your assessment, you must ensure that the submitted document is the final and correct version of the document. That is, if your submitted report contains Track Changes or Comments or any other editing marks it may be awarded 0 (zero) marks. It is your responsibility to submit the final and correct version of your report.
Check with marking criteria. Before submitting your assessment, you should check it against the assessment criteria and the marking rubric included in this specification to ensure that you have satisfactorily addressed all the criteria that will be used to mark your submission.
Academic language. All submissions should be thoroughly proof-read for spelling, typographical or grammatical errors before being submitted. Do not reply on the ‘spell-check’ function in your word processing program. If, for example, ‘affect’ is substituted for ‘effect’, your program may not detect the error.
It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more information on referencing here http://library.laureate.net.au/research skills/referencing
Means of submission. Students must submit ONE MSWord document (.doc or .docx) via the Assessment link in the main navigation menu in MIS604: Requirements Engineering. Physical copies/Email submissions are not accepted.
No Zipped files. Students must NOT zip the MSWord document and submit it as one single zip/compressed file.
Complete and correct submission. Assessment, once submitted, are FINAL and therefore cannot be modified. You bear all the onus to ensure that your submissions are final, correct (correct files in correct format) and complete before submitting to Blackboard.
You are expected to begin this assessment when you begin the trimester, especially as you relate the learning activities (formative assessment) in the modules to this and the other (summative) assessments. Be sure to keep several drafts of your work as well as your notes and any sources you used to draw on in preparing your report.
Extensions will be considered only in extenuating circumstances where the student has applied before the due date. At that point, students are required to provide the latest draft, in case the extension is not granted and to demonstrate they have earnestly done everything to avoid lateness.
Students are responsible for keeping appropriate back-ups and drafts of their assignments and to submit the correct version.
Torrens University Australia policies apply to the preparation and submission of this assignment.
