Percentage Value of Task: 20%
Due: 16:00 Friday – Week 11
Minimum time expectation: 20 hours
Learning Outcomes Assessed
The following course learning outcomes are assessed by completing this assessment:
• Identify and use the correct syntax of a common programming language
• Recall and use typical programming constructs to design and implement simple software
• Reproduce and adapt commonly used basic algorithms
• Utilise pseudocode and/or algorithms as a major program design technique
• Write and implement a solution algorithm using basic programming constructs
• Demonstrate debugging and testing skills whilst writing code
• Develop self-reliance and judgement in adapting algorithms to diverse contexts
• Design and write program solutions to identified problems using accepted design constructs

Assessment Details
It’s time to race!! The Lawn Mowing Championship is a competition run in Britain and they have
employed you to design, develop and test a small application for managing the Championship results.
Stage 1: Design
This stage requires you to prepare documentation that describes the function of the program and how
it is to be tested. There is no coding or code testing involved in this stage. A document template has
been provided for your use.
1) Read through Stage 2: Program Development to obtain details of the requirements of this
2) Write an algorithm that describes how the program will operate.
a. All program requirements must be included, even if you do not end up including all these
requirements in your program code.
b. The algorithm must be structured logically so that the program would function correctly.
3) Prepare and document test cases that can be used to check that the program works correctly,
once it has been coded. You do NOT need to actually run the test cases in this stage; this will
occur in Stage 3: Testing.
a. All program requirements must be included, even if you do not end up including all these
requirements in your program code.
b. Make sure the test cases include checking of data entered by the user to make sure that
only valid data is accepted. If the user enters invalid data, the user should be informed of
this and given another chance to enter the data. NB: As we have not covered exception
handling, you may assume that the user will always enter the expected data type.
c. Test cases should be documented using a template like the one below. You may include
extra information if you wish. At this stage, the Actual Result column will be left blank.

Stage 2: Program Development
Using the Design Documentation to assist you, develop a Java program that uses object-orientated
coding approaches to record and report upon the Lawn Mowing Championship. You must follow
coding conventions, such as proper layout of code, using naming conventions and writing meaningful
comments throughout your program.
Overview of the Program:
This section provides an overview of how the program works from the user’s perspective. You may
change the appearance of the program provided you implement the same functionality.
1. When the program starts, it provides a short message for initialising the contest administration system and
prompts the user to enter the number of rounds that competitors must complete. The user must enter a whole
number greater than or equal to 2 and less than 5. Otherwise, the system keeps prompting until a valid entry is
2. Once the number of rounds required is obtained, the program automatically initialises. This initialisation
includes creating the race, creating the lawn mowers, creating the competitors and registering the competitors
in a race.

3. When initialisation is complete, a menu appears providing the users with options to Enter Results, Display
Results, View Program Credits or Exit Program.
4. When the user selects the Enter Results option, the user is prompted to enter the time each competitor took to
complete a round. When all results (for each round) have been entered, a message “Results have been
successfully recorded” appears and the menu is shown again.
5. When the user chooses to Display Results option, the results are displayed by competitor. Competitors are
listed in order of their total score across all rounds, from highest to lowest. The list is followed by the placings
for the whole event, with those competitors who achieve the lowest times show in first, second and third place,
with the make of lawn mower also identified. The menu is then redisplayed.
Final Results
Amy Santiago: 93.6
Rosa Diaz: 80.1
Terry Jeffords: 58.8
Gina Linetti: 40.9
Jake Peralta: 19.0
Final Placings
First: Jake Peralta driving a Honda
Second: Gina Linetti driving a Honda
Third: Terry Jeffords driving a John Deere

6. When the user selects the option to View Program Credits, a message is displayed providing authorship
information for this program. The main menu is then redisplayed.
