In this homework, you
will design a program to perform the following task:
Write a program that
would allow a user to enter student names and Final grades (e.g. A,B,C,D,F)
from their courses. You do not know how many students need to be entered. You
also do not know how many courses each of the students completed. Design your
program to calculate the Grade Point Average (GPA) for each student based on
each of their final grades. The program should output the Student name
along with the GPA.
There are 5 components
of your submission including:
Program Description- A detailed, clear
description of the program you are building.
Analysis- Demonstrates your thought process
and steps used to analyze the problem. Be sure to include the required input
and output and how you will obtain the required output from the given input?
Also, include your variable names and definitions. Be sure to describe the
necessary formulas and sample calculations that might be needed. Talk about
how your design will allow any number of students and final grades to be
Test plan - Prepare at least 1 set of input
data (Test data) along with their expected output for testing your
program. This test case should include at least 10 students. Your test
data can be presented in the form of a table as follows (note: feel free to
adapt to your design)
Flowchart – Provide a flowchart for your
design. You can use Word, Powerpoint, Visio or any software you have
available that will allow to draw shapes and connectors.
Pseudocode- Provide pseudocode of your
overall design that fulfills the requirements of the project
All of these components
should be placed in word document for submission.
about the program you need to write:
- GPA is
calculated by summing the point equivalents for final grades and taking
the average. A =4, B=3, C=2, D=1, and F = 0. So, if someone earned 2 A’s
and 1 B, their GPA would be (4 + 4 + 3)/3 = 3.67
- Think about
using a simple process to stop entering students and course grades. For
example, if StudentName < 0.
application test data:
for Sally is : 2.5
GPA for John is: 3.6
GPA for Jason is: 3.8
GPA for Bob is: 3.0
GPA for Bill is: 4.0
assignment should be saved as Word document and submitted to your LEO
assignment area no later than the due date listed in the syllabus. Your document
should be neat, well-written with minimal grammatical and spelling errors.
Your name should be clearly listed on the first page along with the
class/section, professor and due date. Your document should contain page
numbers at the bottom of each page. Single or double space line formatting is
You should name the
file yournamehw3.docx (or yournamehw3.doc). So if my name was Julie Smith, I
would name my document juliesmithhw3.docx.
