IT 511 Stepping Stone Labs Two Through Six Rubric
Overview: Beginning with Stepping Stone Two in Module Three, you will complete a series of related stepping stone labs that will help you build object-oriented programming skills that relate to your final project. Be sure to incorporate feedback from your instructor as you develop your work through the stepping stone labs and develop your final project. Note that Stepping Stone Lab One: Pseudocode is graded with a separate rubric. Stepping Stone Labs Two through Six specifics:
Stepping Stone Module Title/Topic Task Specifics
Two Three Data Types Produce basic data types for a recipe manager program.
Three Four Validating Input With Branches Develop a branched structure for a recipe manager program.
Four Five Entering Ingredients With Loops Develop iterative loops for a recipe manager program.
Five Six Collection and Item Class With Accessors and
Develop the first version of the Recipe class and create a test class.
Six Eight The RecipeBox Driver Application Produce a driver application for a recipe manager program.
Each of your programming assignments includes two parts:
Written reflection as text file or Word document The assignment parts are submitted together with the written submission and with the code as a file attachment.
The following critical elements should be addressed in your project submission:
I. Code Reflection A brief explanation of the code, its purpose, and a brief discussion of your experience in developing it, including any issues that you encountered while completing the stepping stone and what approaches you took to solve them
II. Specifications Source code must meet its specifications as defined by the data and problem. However, this may require multiple attempts or iterations. You will be given credit for code that is well on its way to meeting specifications or solving the problem.
III. Correctness Source code must behave as desired. While correct code produces the correct output as defined by the data and problem, for the stepping stones you will receive credit for producing fully functioning code (producing no errors) that aligns with as many of the specifications as possible. Note: You should write your code in such a way that the submitted files execute, even if they do not produce the correct output.
IV. Readability Code needs to be readable to a knowledgeable programmer. In this course, readable code requires the following:
Consistent, appropriate white space (blank lines, spaces) and indentation to separate, distinct parts of the code and operations
Explicit, consistent variable names that clearly indicate the data they hold and are formatted consistently
Organized structure—clear design separating components with different responsibilities
V. Annotation All code should also be well-commented. This is a practiced “art” that requires striking a balance between commenting everything, which adds a great deal of unneeded noise to the code, and commenting nothing. Well-annotated code requires you to do the following:
Explain the purpose of lines or sections of your code, detailing the approach and method you took to achieve a specific task in the code.
Document any section of code that is producing errors or incorrect results.
Rubric Your assignment should be submitted as a zip file of the exported code and reflection text, as required. Note that, although the stepping stone labs are graded, their main purpose is to provide useful practice and feedback that you can incorporate as you build the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in the final project.
Critical Element Proficient (100%) Needs Improvement (70%) Not Evident (0%) Value
Code Reflection Describes purpose of the code, techniques implemented to solve the problem, challenges encountered, and the approaches to overcome the challenges
Lacks details of code purpose, techniques implemented, or challenges encountered
Does not describe purpose of code, techniques used, or challenges encountered
All or most algorithm specifications are fully met
Details of the specifications are not met in significant instances
The program does not meet the specifications 20
Code Correctness The program functions as designed in most cases
The program functions as designed in limited cases
The program does not function as designed 20
Code Readability Code follows proper syntax and demonstrates deliberate attention to spacing, white space, and variable naming
Code contains variations from established syntax and conventions
Code exhibits consistent and significant variations from established syntax and conventions
Annotation Code annotations explain and facilitate navigation of the code
Code annotations are incomplete or provide insufficient assistance with understanding the code
Code annotations do not explain the code, do not facilitate navigation of the code, or are not present
