Correct use of code indentation; use of comments; choice of variable, class and method names; capitalization.

Meini Prawf

da

Equivalent to the range 60%-69%. Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.

trothwy

Equivalent to 40%. Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.

ardderchog

Equivalent to the range 70%+. Assemble critically evaluated, relevent areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.

Canlyniad dysgu

  1. Design and build application/s using a range of programming techniques, including iteration.

  2. Use the basic structure and features of a programming language

  3. Write programs which adhere to style and documentation guidelines.

  4. Design algorithms to solve a range of computational problems; use standard control structures together with I/O facilities to implement algorithms.
