Does the vi have to do most of the things required to pass the test. If most of the individual modules are working but application as a whole is not complete. Do we get many points deducted?
0-10 pts for documentation
0-15 pts for style
0-15 pts for functionality
you need 30 pts to pass. part of style is selecting an appropriate architecture, meaning one that will achieve the software requirements (to wit: "Meets functionality and can be coded in about 4 hours" is the software spec you will get on exam day )
there is a very good architecture NI teaches in Core 3 and that is based on designing modules and incorporating out in your producer/consumer (multi-while loop) architecture. Now having the modules independently working is one thing and incorporating in the main vi is obviously a step ahead.
Do we get points for individual modules working as functionality points even when they dont respond in main architecture perhaps because the rest of the architecture is not complete?
I'm not one of the two reviewers you would get. If I were I would probably want to evaluate based on the whole project being in front of me and determine if the approach made sense and could have met the requirements - then ding you a few points for funcionallity and comment what and why I deducted the points (and then work it out with the co-reviewer and generate a final grade and feedback)
Yup a non answer.
