Assignment and portfolio
July 26, 2013 08:32AM
Remember:

- we mark your working web site page/s. The code you submit is to check what you have done, or not done. We cannot award you a mark on your code alone, so no working web site page/s, no marks. Where applicable (e.g. in the portfolio) we at times award marks for improved code, but such code must work.
- you need to keep your site alive until your receive your mark.
- name your submission correctly.
- read the submission document available on myUnisa under the resources folder.
- do not submit to myUnisa, unless specifically stated. In particular, myUnisa cannot accept zipped files.

The forum is for support before you submit your assignment/portfolio. The portfolio is an exam, so no feedback is provided. In other words, use the forum to get stuff working before you submit.

Pleasure, and well done!

I am not too familiar with REST, but I would suggest you first Google for "JSON, REST, SOAP, WSDL, and SOA". REST is simpler from what I know, but therein lies a danger i.t.o. security.

Hi

I want to ask about the text files that we need open in a popup page.

The TUT Instruction say that the text file must contain the commented out version of the related php file.
E.g Array.txt is the commented out version of Array.php.

The question is want commenting style should we use.
I tried //, # and HTML comments

Nothing works correctly

Try using -

Language: PHP
/* This is the comment style to use for a multiple line comment */

Use the following tags to add comments in html pages.

Hi Prof Mac,

In the Assignment and Portfolio submission procedure you state that for the assignment we must put our URL and "assignment code" in a text document. I would just like to know what is meant by assignment code? Do you mean the unique number for the assignment, or is it the PHP/HTML code for the programs we have written for the assignment?

Many thanks

Ok this might be a dumb question...
Firstly is the portfolio only consist of the folowing pages:
Calc, String, Array and Function? seems short?
Not sure if it is suposed to be all pages in tutorial 101 or only pages with assignment heading (latter obv makes more sense)

also...
Is it ok if I upload my Portfolio as well... (its not 100% complete, more like 95%, but will obviously have time between recieving a mark for assignment and Portfolio submition date to fix relevant pages)
Only reason I ask is my index page has an Assignment and Portfolio split so everything is available in one place.

Thank you.

Just the assignment code (the headings yes) for now please. No problem if the index page has a link to the porftolio

HI Mac,

I know the tutorial and submission documents state it but....just a confirmation
No upload to myUnisa is required.....which means no confirmation that you have submitted an assigment or qualify for the final portfolio/exam like other subjects?

Thanx...Apologies for the procrastination.

No upload - a portfolio works differently for access to exam.

can you please give more explanation about: "All your code for a specific task should be on a single page. That is, you do not pass data from one page to another page. Use if/else statements to control the flow of your code." do you mean coding on every thing on one page?

This is similar to what was done last year. Pages names are provided per question - everything on that page, expect where directed otherwise.

Hi Prof

I trust you well.
I have uploaded assignment on osprey as requested ahead of the due date but when receiving my exam roster from Unisa it states I do not qualify for writing the exams in this module.
I am very worried since this will mean an extra 6 months in obtaining my Diploma.
Could you kindly investigate my issue and revert back to me. I also have not receive my marks for assignment 1 as yet, has it been released?.

My student number is 36033898 and my contact details are on my signature below.

Good Day Prof,

I have noticed that the status for my first assignment says that " I have not been admitted to write exam for this module". However, I have submitted an assignment in time through Osprey and when I tried to resubmit, the portal has been closed now.

Please urgently advise as to how I could retransmit the assignment to the Osprey portal?

Thank you for your support on the 2 PHP modules that I've been studying. You've always been a great help.

Kind Regards
