The Bonus Scheme
The assessments for the module are as follows:

       2 x Phase Tests             30% each
       4 x Driving Tests           10% each

The total number of available marks for the above being 100%

You may also earn bonus marks.

Bonus marks are obtained by doing something in addition to the requirements of
the module, working either individually or as a team. The maximum number of
bonus marks an individual may obtain is 20.

In theory this means that you could obtain 120% for the module (which would be
capped at 100%).

All tasks undertaken for the bonus scheme must be agreed by your tutor. Your
tutor may have specific preference for the kind of activities they wish you to
undertake. This document contains suggestions for activities. You or your tutor
may devise additional activities which may be used to obtain bonus points.

How to Obtain Bonus Marks
First you need to decide if you are going to work individually or in a team. You
are doing either one or the other. You may not do both at the same time. You
may try working in a team to start with and then work individually later on if you
wish.

Team Based Bonus Marks
A team should consist of two to five people working together to achieve a certain
bonus. A team normally has a limited life span and will be disbanded once the
goal has been achieved.




                                                                                     1
Setting up your Team

Your tutor will advise if are to select your own team membership. Members may
be added (or removed from) your team whenever your tutor sees fit.

What is a Team?

A team is a group of people working together for a limited period of time to
achieve a specific target (or targets).

For example you may form a team in week two that is planning for all members
to pass driving test 1. As soon as that target is achieved the team is disbanded
and the members are free to do other things e.g. work alone or join a new team.

Steps for Forming your Team

   1. Write a list of your team members with email, MSN and mobile phone
      numbers so that you may contact each other
   2. State your target(s) which your team aims to achieve
   3. Think of a team name, this may be anything you like
   4. Write up your team rules

How will your team deal with the following?

      How will you reward team members who work really hard to help the team
       succeed?
      How will you deal with team members who hold back the team?
      What will you do if a person needs to be removed from the team?
      What will you do if you want to get out of your team?

The above should be written up in Word, distributed to all of your team members
and your tutor.




                                                                                   2
You should end up with a document like the following...

      Team Name            The Simpsons
      Tutor                Matthew Dean

      Team Members
      Fred Smith           fsmith@hotmail.co.uk       07786576564
      Tina Patel           tpatel@gmail.com           07746875764
      Bill Blogs           bigbill@yahoo.co.uk        07776757645

      This team will be disbanded as soon as we have all passed driving
      test 1.

      If a team member works really hard we shall buy them a drink.

      If a team member doesn’t pull their weight we won’t tell them about
      team nights out.

      If a member is really causing problems we shall warn them first and
      if they don’t improve we shall contact our tutor to deal with the
      problem.

Any changes to your team membership must be agreed by your tutor.

Once you have set up your team and notified your tutor, you need to decide what
your team will do to obtain bonus marks, below are some suggestions.




                                                                              3
Design Deliver and Mark Your Own Phase Test (5 marks)

Take a look at the questions for the phase tests and design your own test. Your
test must be approved by your tutor in advance. On the day of the test your tutor
will allocate your team some students to assess.

Each member of your team must mark at least one test. Your team must then
agree that each team member has marked the work correctly.

After the test, your team must submit to your tutor the question you created, your
completed marking grids and the work created by the students you have
assessed.

Your tutor will check the marking and if they (mostly) agree with your team’s
marks you will all be awarded a bonus. Your tutor may adjust individual grades
awarded.




                                                                                 4
Ensure that your Team all pass a Named Assessment (2 marks)

Create a document along the following lines and submit it to your tutor in
advance of sitting the named assessment.

      Date 1/12/08
      Tutor Matthew Dean

      We the following team members...

      Fred Smith           P78976454
      Tina Patel           P67442322
      Bill Blogs           P43754374

      Will all pass the following assignment...

      Driving Test 1

      When we have done this we shall all be awarded a bonus.

In order to achieve the above you will need to support each member of your team
and ensure that they are on top of the teaching material.




                                                                             5
Teach a Class (5 marks)

Working with your tutor, devise a class and deliver it. This may be a short class
with tutorial questions and exercises or it may be longer. Your team must devise
their own teaching material that relates to the set topic for when you teach your
class. Each member of your team must participate in some way with the
teaching however you may all perform different roles.

(This may also be used for a student working individually.)


Form a Sparring Partnership (2 marks)

In boxing two people spar together to help train each other.

In this case you form a two person team where you both work together to get the
same or better grade than last time.

In order for this to work you will need to have taken at least one assessment
already.

Say for example you each got 7 marks for driving test 1. As a sparring
partnership you would aim to get 7 marks or more next time.

If on driving test 2 you each obtain 10 marks then you would both be awarded 3
bonus points.

If one of you got less than 7 marks then no bonus points would be awarded.




                                                                                 6
Individual Bonus Marks

Should you decide not to work in a team you may still obtain bonus points.

Create and Pass your own Driving Test (5 marks)

Take a look at the set Driving Test assessments and devise your own (This may
be based on your portfolio work, i.e. the Swap Shop). You must work with your
tutor to ensure that your question is of a suitable level and complexity. All
questions must be approved by the module leader to ensure originality. Once you
have created your question, you must write the program and then pass it via the
usual Driving Test process.

Once you have done the above you must submit the Driving Test and you will be
awarded bonus marks.




                                                                             7
Create a Video Tutorial (5 marks)

Using CamStudio, create a video tutorial for inclusion on the module web site.
Look at the topics for each week and decide on one. Your video should
demonstrate an original example of that topic in a working program explaining
what is being done at each stage. Your tutorial needs to be concise and clear so
that other students will benefit from it.

CamStudio is available as a free download from the module web site. A tutorial
video is available to get you started.

Your video must have the ID card software running at all times during your
presentation.

When you are ready you must make your video available for peer review. Each
member of your lab group must vote for your video to decide if it is worthy of
placing on the module web site. If more than half the group think it is, then it will
be included in the module web site and you will be awarded bonus points. Your
tutor takes the final decision of acceptability.




                                                                                        8
Create a Diary of your Learning over a Month (2 marks)

The diary may take the form of a blog or a document created in word. The diary
should cover any month of your choice and should contain complete entries for
each day of the specified period. Each Visual Web Development class needs to
be documented and discussed. You may start your diary with a specific goal in
mind for example “this month I am going to understand how function procedures
work”.

Each day of your diary you should discuss issues that don’t make sense to you
along with your concerns about the subject matter. A diary may read something
like this...

      Diary for October

      Day 1
      Today I had my first class in Visual Web Development and I have to say I
      am not sure about the subject. There seems to be a lot to learn and all
      the other people in the groups seem to know much more than I do. Going
      to work through the material though and give it a go. So many new words
      to remember I hate it.

      Day 2
      Worked on other modules today, didn’t do any VWD work. Plan to do
      some work on it tomorrow.

      Day 3
      Had a go at the set exercise and sort of did it. Couldn’t get the program to
      work at all though, decided to ask my mate about what he is doing to see
      if he has done it. Dave said he couldn’t do it either we think we are going
      to fail this module.

      Day 4
      Dave and I sat down with the tutor and she worked through it with us. It is
      starting to make a bit more sense now and I think I know what a variable is
      and how it relates to the memory in a computer. Got another class
      tomorrow and not dreading it as much.

      And so on.

Each week you should share your diary with your tutor and spend some time
discussing your progress. Your dairy must involve a weekly review by your tutor.
Diaries that simply appear out of fresh air will not be eligible. At the end of the
month in question, if your tutor is happy with your diary you will be awarded
bonus points.


                                                                                  9
Become a Classroom Assistant

Discuss with your tutor how you may become a class room assistant. You will be
required to help other students when they need help and advise them on how to
solve their problems. To do this you will need to familiarise yourself with the
material in advance of the class so that you can contribute. (This could look
quite good on your CV if you do a good job!)
