Due November 13, 2007,
checkpoint October 31, 2007CS 160, Fall 2007
This assignment has four distinct parts to it.
·You need to provide a working demo of your
checkpoint on October 31 in discussion section will be used to assess progress
on the implementation
final demo on November 13 will be graded by the teaching staff and invited
guests from the HCI community in Berkeley and the Bay Area
·You need to produce a poster that accompanies
the demo that introduces the project (after the demo session, these posters
will be hung up in the 5th floor of Soda).
·You need to individually turn in an assessment
of each of your group members
You must demonstrate a final,
working prototype of your project. This will be the version that you will
be doing user testing on, the implementation should be considered complete by the November 13 demo.
As a progress checkpoint
along the way, each group must demo their current status of the project on
October 31.We would like you to
have implemented by that point enough functionality to perform two of the
three main tasks you storyboarded. We will identify one task that you
should implement in the feedback to your storyboard submission. You can
choose the other task that you’d like to demo to us. You will need to show
what is currently working and what you plan to complete by Nov. 13th.
You will need to schedule a slot for a 10-minute presentation for October
31, Wed. (this is the
time for the discussion sections plus the hour in between for more time).
We will develop a mechanism for scheduling once we get closer to the week.
You must create a poster that
introduces the project to people attending the demo session. The poster
should introduce viewers to the need that your project is addressing and
your design approach. It should include a screenshot of the major
interface to your application. The poster should serve as both background
to your demo session, and should be self-explanatory when they are
displayed in the 5th floor hallways in Soda. We will provide a
template to use for creating a poster. If you email in the poster file by
midnight (12:00) on Sunday, November 11, we’ll take care of printing it
for you on a color plotter. Otherwise, you will need to find a way to
print the poster out on your own.
You should submit an
individual assessment of each of the group members (including yourself!).
We’re looking for an assessment of each member’s contribution to the
project, ranked from 1 (weak contribution) to 5 (strong contribution), and
a paragraph explaining your assessment of their involvement. This is an individual assignment, and one copy will be handed in
privately without other group members seeing it. Feel free to also comment
on the overall working dynamics of the group.
The working prototype
should accomplish the major tasks without bugs or errors
Design quality heuristics
The design of the
application should represent a good flow of tasks and good HCI design in
terms of visibility, feedback, and efficiency in accomplishing the task.
of goals and approach of project
We just want everyone
to turn one in. Honest and constructive feedback is most helpful
