SoftTech SUMMATIVE

Overview | Sign-Up

SUMMATIVE OBJECTIVES


The objective of the summative is to give each student the opportunity to demonstrate ALL the skills acquired during the course of the semester. Think of it as a product-driven "final exam" that reviews all aspects of the course, but is open book, and lasts about two weeks instead of a couple of hours.
  • This project should DEMONSTRATE an appropriate range and depth of the SKILLS you've acquired from the course
  • This project should attempt to create a USEFUL and INNOVATIVE product
  • This project MUST be FEASIBLE and completed given the time constraints and limited resources of the lab
