CSC 217 Lab 07 - ArrayLists

The next step in implementing PackScheduler is to add functionality for students to register for classes they want to take. You’ll create a utility package that will have a custom implementation of a generic ArrayList that doesn’t allow null elements or duplicates. From there, you will create a Schedule and incorporate it into the Student class.

Learning Outcomes

  • Create a custom ArrayList implementation that extends AbstractList.
  • Integrate the custom ArrayList into a larger implementation.

Lab Checks

There are several checks that will occur during your build to ensure that you’re following software engineering best practices:

  • Library checks: You’ll be working with the SortedList class that is part of the CSC216Collections library. Additionally, you’re creating a custom ArrayList implementation. You must remove all of your references to java.util.ArrayList from your project - including the Javadoc. If you receive a red ball and a message in the console output about using java.util.ArrayList search your project for the string, remove the doc/ folder, and regenerate your Javadoc!
  • Coverage checks: You must have 80% coverage for each non-GUI and non-test class in PackScheduler. A tool will check that you have passed the 80% threshold before running any of the teaching tests. A class with less than 95% method coverage will keep you at a yellow ball, but will let the teaching staff tests run.

Lab Deadlines & Jenkins Servers

All labs are due 10 minutes before the start of the next lab. Additionally, each lab section has their own dedicated lab Jenkins server. The table below provides the deadline and server URL for each lab section for the current semester.

Lab Rubric

You will be evaluated out of 70 points in the Technical Rubric. Synchronous students will also be evaluated on their teaming: a combination of In-Lab Participation and Out-Lab Participation. Collaborating Asynchronous students will also be evaluated on their participation in their pair.

Pair/teams are expected to work together on all aspects of the lab activity. Points may be deducted for not contributing or for not providing a partner the opportunity to contribute. The teaching staff strongly encourages working synchronously and requires that these collaborative sessions are documented in GitHub commit messages for the teaching staff to note the team contribution.

Technical Rubric

Phase Grade Item Points Details
Teaching Staff Unit Tests 15 Pass all of the teaching staff unit tests (no regressions), both provided and hidden.
Student Unit Tests 15 Pass all of your unit tests.
Student Test Coverage 15 80% statement/line coverage on every non-UI/non-test class.
Teaching Staff System Tests 10 Pass all of the teaching staff system tests (note that they will not be provided).
Javadoc Comments 5 All classes, including the tests are commented with meaningful comments.
Javadoc Generation 5 Javadoc tool was used to generate the HTML version of the API, which matches the current version of the in-code Javadoc.
Style 5 Any PMD, CheckStyle, or SpotBugs Scary or Scariest notifications will result in a one point deduction, up to the available points.
  Total Points 70  

Synchronous Collaboration Rubric

Grade Item Points Details
In-Lab Collaboration 10 PTFs will be looking for collaboration with your partner during lab activities. Did you participate in completing the lab assignment? Did you balance your roles of driver and navigator? There will be deductions for observations of non-participation or hogging of one role or the other so a partner cannot participate.
Out-Lab Collaboration 10 Did you make at least one meaningful commit to GitHub for completing the lab (e.g., meaningful means that the commit has to contribute to the solution and isn't superficial)? If you pair programmed, is it noted in the commit message? Did you not allow your partner, who wanted to contribute, to commit?
Tasks 5 Did you add your tasks for the lab to the top of the README file? Did you include owners? Did you include internal deadlines? Are the tasks shown as complete with any other needed updates (e.g., the person who completed or helped with the task changed)
Collaboration Check-in 5 Did you complete the collaboration check-in on time?

Asynchronous Collaboration Rubric

Grade Item Points Details
Collaboration 10 Did you make at least one meaningful commit to GitHub for completing the lab (e.g., meaningful means that the commit has to contribute to the solution and isn't superficial)? If you pair programmed, is it noted in the commit message? Did you not allow your partner, who wanted to contribute, to commit?
Tasks 5 Did you add your tasks for the lab to the top of the README file? Did you include owners? Did you include internal deadlines? Are the tasks shown as complete with any other needed updates (e.g., the person who completed or helped with the task changed)
Collaboration Check-in 5 Did you complete the collaboration check-in on time?

Deductions

Grade Item Points Details
Misnamed file or incorrect project structure -5 Incorrect names of files or incorrect project structure. This can include problems when importing the project to Eclipse for acceptance testing, incorrect location of the system test file, incorrect file extension, etc.
Other deductions -5 If the project has to be manually graded due, you will receive a 5 point deduction. Make sure that your project builds on Jenkins!
