Exam 3 Planning – 12/01/2015

Exam 3 planning

• The primary material covered in the exam 3 will be on the Design aspects of the course with focus on the topic discussions and exercises reviewed in Classes 8 through 11.

– Class 8 – Design

– Class 9 – Persona/Scenario/Prototype

– Class 10 – User Experience

– Class 11 – Reviewing Work

– Class 11 – Selling Your Ideas

• While the exam will focus on design aspects of the discussions, there will be references to the analysis tools (process flow, data entities and business rules) found in some of the questions and applied in the case portion of the exam.

• A review of chapter 6 in the text book and the class discussions on the analysis tools will also be helpful

– Class 5 – Process Mapping

– Class 6 – Data Mapping and Relationships

– Class 7 – Business Rules and Decision Tree

–  Class 12 – Summary  has a general overview of the course and the topics

• The exam has three sections: (all multiple choice)

12 question on general knowledge of the above subject areas (mostly on Design Topics)

12 questions based on a case review which is focused on data elements and there application in a mocked up design solution (Report Designs and Layouts will be included in the case material)

16 question on a separate case review which will focused on the identification / evaluation of business rules and their applicability to developing a potential solutions

To prepare for the question pertaining to the two cases in the exam, review previous case work assignments and practice identifying the key process steps, data elements and business rules that would be pertinent to creating a solution

Overall this exam will test you skills in analyzing the information supplied in a case an applying it to a solution
