Learning outcomes and graduate attributes

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:

GA1: Intellectual rigour, GA2: Creativity, GA3: Ethical practice, GA4: Knowledge of a discipline, GA5: Lifelong learning, GA6: Communication and social skills, GA7: Cultural competence
GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 modify and expand short object-oriented programs that use standard conditional and iterative control structures and methods
2 design, implement, test, and debug simple programs in an object-oriented programming language
3 describe how the class mechanism supports encapsulation and information hiding
4 describe the relationship between the static structure of the class and the dynamic structure of the instances of the class
5 utilise iterators to access the elements of a container
6 describe how constructors and destructors relate to the life of an object.
