It provides preparation for completion of a supervised research project. In part 1, students carry out a preliminary literature review of the material relevant to their project, develop a research proposal and timeline and begin their research project. They summarise and discuss their proposal in an intermediate report and present a seminar. The Honours project (part 1 and 2 together) comprises a substantial project usually involving a detailed literature review together with a theoretical and/or practical investigation of a computer science problem. Technical content will be dependent on the project undertaken. BUILDING KNOWLEDGE FOR: COMP4252 and possible later postgraduate studies. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE Permission from HOD. Knowledge is as required for the project undertaken P ROVIDES CORE KNOWLEDGE FOR  SPECIFIC COURSES COMP4252  –  Computer Science Honours Project  –  Part 2 TEACHING METHODS Individual supervision. CONTACT HOURS Individual Supervision, 1 hour per week for full term. CONTINUOUS COURSE EVALUATION AND IMPROVEMENT Each year feedback is sought from students and other stakeholders about the courses offered in the University for the purposes of identifying areas of excellence and potential improvement. Information on previous course offerings is available at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/university-surveys/   The key themes of previous feedback, and any major changes that were made as a consequence of this are outlined below. No changes were necessary.     The course Co-ordinator takes full responsibility for the accuracy and information provided in this document, once issued NO CHANGES are permitted.

Be acquainted with the steps necessary to plan a research project. 2. Give students the opportunity to carry out research oriented activities in a scientific way and to provide students with hands-on exposure to problems in the frontier of knowledge that are relevant to academia or to industry. 3. Develop research and communication skills. This includes techniques for discipline specific literature search and the opportunity to present and discuss in written and oral form current research issues and associated literature in project relevant areas. Student Learning Outcomes On successful completion of this course, students will be able to: 1. Understand in-depth knowledge in a specific area of ICT 2. Improve communication skills 3. Improve capacity to undertake postgraduate research COURSE CONTENT Comprises planning and start of a substantial project usually involving a literature review together with a theoretical and/or practical investigation of a computer science problem. Technical content will be dependent on the project undertaken. The project work is embodied in a research report, and presented in a seminar.  Additional instruction and assistance in report preparation and seminar preparation and delivery will be given. Teaching program and sequence   The deadlines for the assessment items will be available on Blackboard. The other parts of this project course can be decided on agreement between student and supervisor.

Course Outline dated 28 July 2014 Invalid unless signed by the Head of School    Page 4 Overview of Assessment Criteria Assessment task Description Weighting Intermediate Project Report Before the end of week 10 an intermediate report should be presented to the project supervisor. The aim is to have a realistic and well-supported project proposal and plan developed. This intermediate project report and proposal should contain:   Project title   Project definition and description   Literature review (at least 5 references)   Discussion of possible outcomes of the project   Plan for the whole project (including preliminary timeline and milestones). The length of the intermediate report should be at least 10 pages. It will be marked by the project supervisor and returned to the student. 10 units The report will be marked by the project supervisor (who has to submit a marking report to the course coordinator) Presentations - Individual The student is expected to present a seminar for the project proposal. The seminar should be presented before the end of the semester. The oral presentation should include project topic, goals, background (literature review), results achieved so far (if any) and research plan for the whole project including part 2 (COMP4252). The length of the presentation should be about 30 mins plus 10 mins for discussion and questions. The intention is to supply the Honours student with feedback on the project plan and provide an opportunity for improving oral presentation skills. 10 units The presentation will not be not marked by the supervisor but one or two alternative markers (A marking report has to be submitted to the course coordinator) Marking and Grading for Undergraduate and Postgraduate Courses & Programs Range of marks   Grade   Long Description  85-100 High Distinction (HD) Outstanding standard indicating comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the relevant materials; demonstration of an outstanding level of academic ability; mastery of skills*; and achievement of all assessment objectives. 75-84 Distinction (D) Excellent standard indicating a very high level of knowledge and understanding of the relevant materials; demonstration of a very high level of academic ability; sound development of skills*; and achievement of all assessment objectives. 65-74 Credit (C) Very Good standard indicating a high level of knowledge and understanding of the relevant materials; demonstration of a high level of academic ability; reasonable development of skills*; and achievement of all assessment objectives. 50-64 Pass (P) Satisfactory standard indicating an adequate knowledge and understanding of the relevant materials; demonstration of an adequate level of academic ability; satisfactory development of skills*; and achievement of most assessment objectives. 0-49 Fail (FF) Failure to satisfactorily achieve assessment objectives or compulsory course components. A fail grade may also be awarded following disciplinary action. Ungraded Pass (UP) A grade awarded in a course for which only a pass or fail is available *Skills are those identified for the purposes of assessment task(s). Detailed Assessment Criteria
