Software Engineering Large Practical (SELP)

Response to 2016/17 survey feedback for SELP.

I have taken note of the feedback from students in this course survey, and have the following comments in response.

  • The Software Engineering Large Practical was running for the first time in 2016/2017 as a 20-point course. The redesign of the course for this new format introduced a first coursework which was too time-consuming to mark, given the class size for the practical. The delay in returning marks for this first coursework led to a delay in returning marks for the second coursework also. The course has been restructured this year to avoid a repeat of the problems with delays in returning marks for coursework.
