Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1analyze problems and determine the appropriate solution
2assess the suitability of data structures and algorithms for use in computational thinking
3develop programs that use existing algorithms to solve problems
4design and develop algorithms to solve problems using appropriate data structures.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  1. analyze problems and determine the appropriate solution
  2. assess the suitability of data structures and algorithms for use in computational thinking
  3. develop programs that use existing algorithms to solve problems
  4. design and develop algorithms to solve problems using appropriate data structures.

Teaching and assessment

Notice

Intensive offerings may or may not be scheduled in every teaching period. Please refer to the timetable for further details.

Southern Cross University employs different teaching methods within units to provide students with the flexibility to choose the mode of learning that best suits them. SCU academics strive to use the latest approaches and, as a result, the learning modes and materials may change. The most current information regarding a unit will be provided to enrolled students at the beginning of the teaching period.
