CITS2002 Programming and Systems - Project 1 Feedback (2016)

Thanks to the 61 (of 215) students who completed the survey. Presented below are links to your feedback, including all 'numeric' questions, and the ones for which you provided comments. Overall, the consensus appears that students were interested in the project, appreciated its relationship to the learning objectives of the unit, but that more time would have been appreciated.

As is seen in many university surveys, a number of comments recommended "more of something". Unfortunately many of these requests cannot be met because the unit is presented under a number of financial and time constraints - for example, we're funded based on the number of students enrolled in the unit, pay lab demonstrators and markers according to standard rates of pay, and those involved in the unit do have other responsibilities each week. Having the 1st project deadline before the non-teaching week, and not after that week, provides an essential opportunity to actually complete the project's marking with the required (ridiculous) 15 days.

Please have a look through the comments of your peers, and the replies I've made in blue to some of them. If you're a student who felt that the project was far too difficult, you will see the diversity of opinions and comments from students that found the project challenging but worthwhile. Of course, please follow-up with any additional comments or questions via email, or on help2002.
