DOMAIN MODEL 

Object Oriented Programming

Assignment 2

 

Objectives

This assignment has two main objectives:

(1) Give you experience creating UML diagrams and models

(2) Emphasize that UML can be used to model just about anything, not just software designs

 

Introduction

Some software is general and widely applicable (e.g., web browsers, spreadsheet programs, word processors). However, most software is written to address the needs of a specific application domain. Hospitals need hospital software. Banks need banking software. Wal-Mart needs software that is very specific to their business. Software developers must understand the ins and outs of the domain at which their software is targeted. If you don’t understand how hospitals operate, you can’t develop hospital software. If you don’t understand how banks work, you shouldn’t be developing banking software. If you find yourself in the position of having to develop software for a domain that you don’t understand, your first step should be to learn about the domain. Domain knowledge can be gained in many ways: reading, attending conferences, talking to experts in the field, etc. As your knowledge of the domain grows, you should capture your knowledge by creating a document called a domain model. A domain model can include any form of documentation that usefully captures your newly acquired domain knowledge. Frequently a domain model will include both written language and UML diagrams that together model the concepts and processes of the domain. Not only will your domain model help you to clarify and remember what you’ve learned, it also will be a valuable resource during the requirements elicitation and software design phases.

Assignment

Your assignment is to select an application domain that is interesting to you, and create a domain model for it. You won’t have time to actually learn about a new domain, so pick a domain that you already know about. Most domains are far too large to model in a week or two, so select some small part of your chosen domain to focus on. If you can’t think of a domain that you want to model, you may select one from the following list:

  • A hospital
  • A bank
  • A retail or grocery store
  • A University e.g EAU
  • Faysal Mosque in Islamabad
  • The US government

For example, if you model a hospital, you would want to model concepts such as: doctors, nurses, patients, wards, medical tests, medical charts, the admittance process, the checkout process, interactions between doctors, nurses, and patients, etc. For the Mosque you would want to model the Mosque organizational structure, interactions between the various roles in the Mosque, Mosque processes, etc.

For this assignment you will use StarUML to make your domain model diagrams. Your domain model should consist of all the important things such as concept classes, associations, attributes, types, roles etc.

The Explorer Quest is an opportunity to explore a music-related topic you are interested in learning more about. You are encouraged to choose a topic that will benefit you professionally (ie: Research how music relates to your field of study, submit a project you can use as a sample for grad. school applications, etc) or personally (ie: Learn an instrument, learn a song, etc.). You are fairly free in choosing a topic.

 

The amount of XP you earn will be determined by three components:

  1. The Project Itself (max 100 XP)
  2. Works Cited (max 50 XP)
  • Self-Reflection (max 50 XP)

 

  1. The Project Itself
  • Written Project: Double-spaced, size 11 or 12 font, 2+ pages
    1. Write a short story from the perspective of someone living in a particular decade, an instrument tracing its evolution, a particular musician, etc.
    2. Write a journalism article on your topic.
    3. Write a literature review of various books/articles related to your topic.
    4. Read and summarize a music-related book. What did you learn? Be critical of the book and include your opinion.
    5. Write a research paper.
    6. If you are a parent, learn about music education techniques and try them out on your child. Write about the experience. You’ve just discovered an easter egg. Email Prof. S explaining a possible idea for your Explorer Quest, or if you need suggestions, ask.
    7. If you have an elderly relative with Dementia or Alzheimers, learn about music therapy techniques and try them out on your relative. Write about the experience.

 

*This should NOT be a stressful project. I expect quality work regardless of project format, but if you are having a jam-packed semester, let me know and we’ll work to make sure this isn’t just another assignment on the pile. I know what it’s like to be a student!

 

  1. Works Cited

 

Regardless of format, you are expected to properly cite at least five sources with your project (exceptions apply – see me for details).  Audio and video examples count as sources but must be cited properly.

 

Citations should come from reputable sources. I suggest searching for sources through www.scholar.google.com rather than conducting regular Google searches.

 

You may use MLA, APA, or Chicago format for your works cited page. For more information on how to properly cite sources, please see Brooklyn College (http://libguides.brooklyn.cuny.edu/cite) or Purdue’s webpage (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/).

 

  • Self-Reflection – 1 page, double-spaced, size 11 or 12 font

 

Regardless of format, you are expected to submit a self-reflection with your project. The reflection is a critique of your own work – what you did well, how you can improve, what you learned along the way, if/how you benefitted from this project, etc.

 

The reflection also serves as your opportunity to let me know what feedback you’d like and what I should take into account when grading. If you learned a piece of music, what kind of advice would you like me to provide? If you wrote a research paper, would you like suggestions on improving grammar, content, etc.?

Inferential Research and Statistics Project

Part 1

Select one of the following scenarios based on your particular field of interest in psychology:

 

  • General Psychology:
    • Clinicians at a small clinic have been introduced to a new method to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in their clients for veterans. Research indicates that virtual reality (VR) is a highly effective treatment option for patients with PTSD. Currently, the clinic uses only cognitive processing therapy (CPT) with their patients suffering from PTSD. The clinicians would like to find out whether VR therapy has different results from CPT therapy. The measure used by the clinic to measure PTSD symptoms is the Combat Exposure Scale. Both therapies need to be applied for a minimum of 12 weeks to be effective.

 

Write a 525- to 750-word paper that addresses the following for your chosen scenario:

 

  • Clearly define the problem or issue you are addressing. Provide a brief background of any research you have found that might affect your research hypothesis.
  • Create a research hypothesis based on the information provided in each scenario. You have been given a data set (Excel document) with two sets of interval data (just the numbers, as you must decide what they represent, such as method A results or method B results). This means you are going to test one thing against another, such as which method works best (step 1 of the steps to hypothesis testing). State the null and research hypotheses. Explain whether these hypotheses require a one-tailed test or two-tailed test, and explain your rationale.
  • Describe the sample you will use. Sample size will be 30 for each group, which are provided in your data set. Explain what type of sampling you selected.
  • Do you think you would also collect some descriptive data, such as gender, age, or shift? Why do you think it makes sense to collect descriptive data?

 

Format your paper according to APA guidelines.

 

Example

 

You have a hypothesis that two drugs have different effects on lowering anxiety. You would have anxiety scores for drug A and anxiety scores for drug B (all after 4 weeks of treatment) to run inferential analysis for after 4 weeks.

 

  • Null hypothesis is H0: drug A = drug B
  • Research hypothesis is H1: drug A ≠ drug B
  • Dependent variable: Anxiety score changed after treatment.
  • Independent variable: drug treatment

 

Because you did not state a direction in your hypotheses (better than or worse than), this will be a two-tailed test. You are looking for differences in either direction. You would set your alpha level of .05 and have a sample for each group of 30 people that were volunteers for the study.

 

 

  • Provide the main finding of the study. What did you prove or fail to prove?
  • Provide recommendations based on your findings.

 

Format any citations in your presentation according to APA guidelines.

ENGR 381 Contemporary Issue Assignment
Review and Reflection on Hydraulic Fracturing
DUE DATE: 15th December
Thermodynamics is fundamentally a subject about energy, which affects our lives in many
different ways. The availability of energy impacts our lifestyle, environment, economy, and
health. One of the primary controversial current topics related to energy is hydraulic fracturing.
Our contemporary issue project this semester will focus on hydraulic fracturing, which is a
controversial technique for harvesting natural gas (and other hydrocarbons) from the earth. This
project has two parts, the first being related to objective aspects of hydraulic fracturing and the
second being subjective to yourself and your own values. The final product of this project will
be a formal written report. The breakdown for the report will be as follows:
1. Part 1: An overview of hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) (2-3 pages, 12 point font, single
spacing)
a. A technical description of fracking
b. An overview of benefits, potential and realized
c. An overview of drawbacks, potential and realized
d. What biases do you detect?
e. Are there discrepancies in your resources?
2. Part 2: Your view on hydraulic fracturing (1-2 pages, 12 point font, single spacing)
a. Evaluate this technology from your personal perspective
b. Engage your values and beliefs as well as engineering ethics and virtues
c. Being as realistic as you can, what is your final recommendation regarding this
technology? Try to be convincing.
This project will require the gathering of information from a variety of sources. You should
include at least one from each of the following:
1. Documentary films
2. Mainstream newpaper articles
3. Blogs/editorial websites
4. Scientific articles
5. Editorials/articles/position statements from engineering societies (e.g. ASME, AIAA,
ACS, etc.)
6. Business magazines
Look for bias (implicit or explicit), and comment on it in your writing. Cite your research
materials throughout your report. Find your own references; I don’t expect to see the same set of
references for any two reports. Give proper citation to any figures used from your sources. See
the included materials on engineering ethics and virtues, and cite these as you make your
arguments in part 2.
Grading criterion: Quality of writing (including the use of citations) (25%), completeness of
background in part 1 (25%), articulation of your point of view in part 2 including citations to
ethics/virtue references (20%), persuasiveness (15%), effective use of figures (15%).
See attached documents on engineering ethics and virtues.
