Title of the Assignment: Assignment 1: Design and test a class
This coursework item is: Summative
This summative coursework will be marked anonymously No
The learning outcomes that are assessed by this coursework are:
1. Be able to select appropriate API facilities in the design, implementation and testing of OO
applications and applets.
This coursework is: Individual
This coursework constitutes 20% to the overall module mark.
Date Set: Monday 23
rd October 2019 at 00:01.
Date & Time Due: Monday 11th November 2019 at 23:59.
Your marked coursework and feedback will be available to you on:
If for any reason this is not forthcoming by the due date your module leader will let you know
why and when it can be expected. The Associate Professor Student Experience
([email protected]) should be informed of any issues relating to the
return of marked coursework and feedback.
Note that you should normally receive feedback on your coursework by no later than 20
University working days after the formal hand-in date, provided that you have met the
submission deadline.
By Friday 9th
When completed you are required to submit your coursework to:
1. Blackboard VLE through a submission portal.
Late submission of coursework policy: Late submissions will be processed in accordance with
current University regulations which state:
“the time period during which a student may submit a piece of work late without authorisation and have the
work capped at 40% [50% at PG level] if passed is 14 calendar days. Work submitted unauthorised more than
14 calendar days after the original submission date will receive a mark of 0%. These regulations apply to a
student’s first attempt at coursework. Work submitted late without authorisation which constitutes reassessment
of a previously failed piece of coursework will always receive a mark of 0%.”
Academic Offences and Bad Academic Practices:
These include plagiarism, cheating, collusion, copying work and reuse of your own work, poor referencing or
the passing off of somebody else’s ideas as your own. If you are in any doubt about what constitutes an
academic offence or bad academic practice you must check with your tutor. Further information and details of
how DSU can support you, if needed, is available at: and

Assignment 1: Design and test a class
This assignment counts 20% towards your module mark.
The deadline for submitting your work via Blackboard is 23:59 Monday 11th November 2019.
Assignment Objectives
To demonstrate your ability and understanding in the following tasks:
1. To design and implement a simple class.
2. To write a test program to create instances of your class and demonstrate its behaviour.
3. To collect output from the test program runs, and comment on it.
4. To conform to Java coding conventions, including documentation style comments.
Your Task
You must create a general design for a class. Design, implement, test and document this class. You
will need to make some assumptions and design decisions about the class. Ensure the class
documentation makes the purpose and constraints of you class clear. You should strive to write your
class so that it is potentially useful in other applications.
Submit four files via Blackboard. Replace with the name of your class:
.java —source code of your class —test program for your class
output.txt —output from the test(s) (plain text please)
report.txt —short reflective report
Add your own observations at the beginning or end of the output files. For example, were the test
outcomes as expected?
The report should be about 200-400 words with your reflections about your class, test program and
results. You should comment on any assumptions that you made, and where improvements could be
made to the design or implementation.
Assessment Criteria – Grade indicators
Pass (50 – 59): You have produced a class with appropriate fields, a constructor, and some modifier
and accessor methods. There is a javadoc header describing the class. A test program creates an
instance of the class and uses some methods. The code is suitably formatted, syntactically correct,
and the test program executes, and output has been recorded.
Merit (60 – 69): Criteria for a Pass have been met. In addition, all standard naming and coding
conventions have been met. There has been consideration of class design, which is evidenced by
javadoc comments, programmer comments, or the report. There is an appropriate level of
documentation throughout the class. All constructors and methods have been used in the test
program. The report gives an insight into the design and implementation decisions.
Distinction (70+): Criteria for a Merit have been met. In addition, code style and documentation is
to a professional standard. The class design is appropriate for the given scenario. Implementation is
(almost) all correct and maintains the integrity of attributes where appropriate. The test program
thoroughly exercises the methods and exposes any limitations, in addition to using an ArrayList.
IMAT5101 OO Programming Assignment 1
la 2019 Page 3 of 5
Design, implement, and test ONE of the classes described below or specify your own. The class
descriptions are deliberately vague in places. For your chosen class, you should use Javadoc
comments to specify its purpose, properties and scope making appropriate assumptions where
necessary. Additional note: To receive higher marks, in your test class you should aim to sensibly
utilise an ArrayList, an overridden equals method, and the Scanner / PrintWriter for I/O.
Classes marked with (60) or (80) are simpler than others and therefore can achieve at best those
respective marks. You are strongly advised to attempt a (80) or (100) level class. Your tutor will
indicate the level of complexity of any class you specify and you MUST get your tutors permission.
You CANNOT use any class that has been discussed or provided to you during this module.
Class Brief Description
AddressName (60) An address has a house number, a street name, a town, county and
postcode. This class should return the full address formatted
EmailAddress (60) An email address is made up of a real name, a user id and domain, e.g.
Peter Jones . The class should return a
correctly formatted email address.
Clock (80) Models a 24 hour clock, which stores a time as hours and minutes. The
time can be advanced. The client can retrieve the hours and minutes.
FilmRental (80) A film DVD has a film title, duration, and category (e.g. U, PG, 15A).
The DVD can be rented and returned.
ScreenRobot (80) A robot has a (x, y) coordinate location. It can turn 90 degrees and move
forward by some amount. It can go ‘home’ to its origin.
CinemaBooking (80) A cinema booking can be for a number of adults and children. The
child’s ticket price is half of the adult. The cost of the booking can be
TaxiJourney (100) A taxi journey has a start location and a destination. There is an
estimated duration of journey and distance. The class should work out
the fare based on a formula using the duration and distance (you can
make up a suitable formula).
HealthMonitor (100) A monitor can be used for a variety of purposes: heart beat, temperature,
blood pressure. A monitor has a minimum and maximum value. If the
current reading goes out of the expected range then an alarm is set.
Stocklevel (100) A product in a shop has a particular quantity in stock. The is a minimum
stock level, and when this is reached it indicates that the product needs
to be reordered. Each item has a suggested reorder amount.
Your own idea (?) . . . discuss with tutor first . . . Grade will be decided by your Tutor.

This may include taking an existing class such as Clock or ScreenRobot
and agreeing some more advanced behaviour.
Assessment indicator checklist
These indicators will be used as a basis for the assessment mark and will form your feedback.

Please note: Your overall mark may be capped at 60 or 80 depending on the level of complexity of
the class you have attempted to design and implement.
