GCSE – Lesson 23 – and 24 Create a program

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

This lesson begins with an exploration of the different ways to test programs with a few example tests to complete. Learners will be introduced to their project, which will be used to check their understanding of all the concepts covered up to this point. As they create their program, they will use their testing skills to perform tests on the program. The program is quite complex and some scaffolding has been provided. It is expected that learners will reach different levels of completion for this project. A rubric has been provided to help you assess the project.

Although two lessons have been allocated for this project, you might decide that more time is required. You should use your professional judgement to increase the time allowance if needed.
