Assessment record sheet — Stage 1
Learner: Nicole Pentland
Stage 1: Critical thinking
What is the problem you have been given to solve?
Describe in detail the problem your app will solve.
I was trying to solve the problem to get people to study by having small quizzes with questions.
What are the factors affecting your problem? You should give all the key factors such as the causes of the problem, why the situation arisen, who and what is involved, and state the effect of the problem. What are the most important factors and why?
What causes the problem?
The problem is Students have difficulty with studying
Why does the problem arise?
The problem arises before you have an assessment
Who is affected?
It is affected by college students
Where does this happen?
It happens at college , home and on the go
When does it happen?
It happens When you want to study or have an assessment
Analyse the problem and identify possible ways to solve the problem. (You will use problem solving techniques to help to analyse the problem.)
Describe here the various ways your group discussed and negotiated different possible solutions, screens in your app, features, etc.
What is the best approach you can take to solve the problem? Explain why you have decided on this approach.
Why did you decide on the app you did? Why the screens, features etc
We decided on the app idea because
What information do you need to help you?
How did you gather information about the problem and solution?
Who will you need to help you with this?
Think of all the people who will help with the app, including all team members.
Francis, David, Natalie
List the evidence you retain to support your analyses of the problem to be solved, eg mind maps, flow charts and/or brainstorming records.
This may include things such as mindmaps, flow charts, mockups, prototypes etc
My group and myself we had a flowchart and mockup for evidence
Stage 2: Planning and organising
Work out an action plan to solve your problem. The headings at the top of the first four columns ask for information on your action plan. The last column is for you to keep a record of what happened as you carried out your action plan. Keep a record of any evidence in support of your planning and organising, for example comparisons with other systems, qualitative or quantitative research.
What needs to be done? What needs to be done? You should show what steps need to be carried out in the correct order.
Who might I need to ask for help, advice, or information?
What resources might I need?
What limitations are there? Consider the effect limitations such as time or cost might have.
What happened? As you carry out the steps in your action plan make a note of what happened along with any amendments.
List all the things you need to do to complete your Apps for Good course

Pitch your app idea to expert
For each task on the left, who would you get help from?
For each task on the left, what resources would you need to complete the task?
For each task on the left, Describe what happened when you completed the tasks, were there any issues, did you make any changes to your plans?
Stage 3: Reviewing and evaluating
Now that you have completed your action plan to solve your problem, decide how effective your action plan and solution have been. Decide on criteria to judge how effective every aspect of your problem solving activity has been. Your criteria might be identifying the causes of the problem correctly, working out an action plan to address these factors, keeping to a timescale, using appropriate resources, keeping within a budget, and/or everyone working effectively at their allocated steps. You should also decide on the effectiveness of any amendments you made to your action plan based on your ongoing review of its progress. You should also note the evidence you have retained to support your evaluation, eg minutes of meetings, cost analyses, market research, comparisons with other systems, product testing, and quantitative and qualitative research. When you have completed your review and evaluation, you will recommend alternative ways of solving problems in future based on your experience with this problem solving activity and the evidence you have gathered. Give reasons for your recommendations.
Describe the criteria you will use to judge your teams success – this might be identifying the causes of the problem correctly,
working out an action plan to address these factors,
keeping to a timescale,
using appropriate resources,
completing all work asked
and/or everyone working effectively at their allocated steps.
Aspect of problem solving activity/amendment to plan
Describe any changes to your original plan,
We had done an app called U learn but we had to change the idea as we didn’t know anything about schools
How effective was it? What were the strengths and weaknesses?
describe how effective these changes were
What evidence do you have to support your evaluation?
How can you judge your work as a success?
Based on your evaluation of this problem, identify alternative ways of solving a similar problem in the future. Explain why you have decided on these and give reasons for your recommendations.
Date: ng all team members.
