I'm working on a computer science multi-part question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
1. Computational Artifact
Your computational artifact must provide an illustration, representation, or explanation of the computing innovation’s intended purpose, its function, or its effect. The computational artifact must not simply repeat the information supplied in the written responses and should be primarily nontextual.
Submit a video, audio, or PDF file. Use computing tools and techniques to create one original computational artifact (a visualization, a graphic, a video, a program, or an audio recording). Acceptable multimedia file types include .mp3, .mp4, .wmv, .avi, .mov, .wav, .aif, or .pdf format. PDF files must not exceed three pages. Video or audio files must not exceed 1 minute in length and must not exceed 30MB in size.
2. Written Responses
Submit one PDF file in which you respond directly to each of the prompts below. Clearly label your responses 2a–2e in order. Your responses must provide evidence of the extensive knowledge you have developed about your chosen computing innovation and its impact(s). Write your responses so they would be understandable to someone who is not familiar with the computing innovation. Include citations,
as applicable, within your written responses. Your response to prompts 2a–2d combined must not exceed 700 words. The references required in 2e are not included in the final word count.
2a. Provide information on your computing innovation and computational artifact.
Name the computing innovation that is represented by your computational artifact.
Describe the computing innovation’s intended purpose and function.
Describe how your computational artifact illustrates, represents, or explains the computing innovation’s intended purpose, its function, or its effect.
(Must not exceed 100 words)
2b. Describe your development process, explicitly identifying the computing tools and techniques you used to create your artifact. Your description must be detailed enough so that a person unfamiliar with those tools and techniques will understand your process. (Must not exceed 100 words)
2c. Explain at least one beneficial effect and at least one harmful effect the computing innovation has had, or has the potential to have, on society, economy, or culture. (Must not exceed 250 words)
2d. Using specific details, describe:
the data your innovation uses;
how the innovation consumes (as input), produces (as output), and/or transforms data; and
at least one data storage concern, data privacy concern, or data security concern directly related to the computing innovation.
(Must not exceed 250 words) References
2e. Provide a list of at least three online or print sources used to create your computational artifact and/or support your responses through in-text citation to the prompts provided in this performance task.
At least two of the sources must have been created after the end of the previous academic year.
For each online source, include the complete and permanent URL. Identify the author, title, source, the date you retrieved the source, and, if possible, the date the reference was written or posted.
For each print source, include the author, title of excerpt/article and magazine or book, page number(s), publisher, and date of publication.
If you include an interview source, include the name of the person you interviewed, the date on which the interview occurred, and the person’s position in the field.
Include in-text citations for the sources you used.
Each source must be relevant, credible, and easily accessed.
- analyze a computing innovations impact on society, economy, or culture and explain how this impact could be beneficial and/or harmful
- explain how a computing innovation consumes, produces, or transforms data; and
- describe how data storage, data privacy, or data security concerns are raised based
- on the capabilities of the computing innovation.
- You are also required to:
- investigate your computing innovation using a variety of sources (e.g., print, online, expert interviews);
- provide in-text citations of at least three different sources that helped you create your computational artifact and/or formulate your written responses;
- › At least two of the sources must be available online or in print; your third source may be either online, in print, or a personal interview with an expert on the computing innovation.
- › At least two of the sources must have been created after the end of the previous academic year.
- produce a computational artifact that illustrates, represents, or explains the computing innovation's intended purpose, its function, or its effect; and
- provide written responses to all the prompts in the performance task about your
