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:
1 explain data analytics and its role in problem-solving
2 apply data analytics to decompose problems into solution steps
3 develop small procedures that use existing algorithms to solve problems
4 implement and debug procedures in a suitable environment.
