This a problem set for you to work through [1]

This is a problem set. Some of these are easy, others are far more difficult. The purpose of these problems sets are:

  1. to build your skill applying computational thinking to a problem
  2. to assess your knowledge and skills of different programming practices


What is this problem set trying to do

This is example problem set. In this example we are learning about lists and conditionals.

The Problem

Please consult the image of a leaderboard below

You must designProduce a plan, simulation or model. an algorithm which creates the totl numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. of points. The algorithm accepts as input a comma delimited listGive a sequence of brief answers with no explanation.:

USER ID, BADGES, CHALLENGES, VIDEOS, QUIZZES

For QUIZZES, the input is passed as a 2 dimensional listGive a sequence of brief answers with no explanation. indicated the quiz numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. and the numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. of attempts. Please see below for two different examples of inputs:

1234, 3, 12, 13, [[1,1],[2,5],[3,1],[4,2]]

In the example above, user 1234 has 3 badges, 12 challenges, 13 videos and has the following quiz data:

  • for quiz 1, there was 1 attempt
  • for quiz 2, there was 5 attempts
  • for quiz 3, there was 1 attempt
  • for quiz 4 there were 2 attempts.

Your program should output the user ID and the numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. of points that user has earned. An example of out should look like:

1234, 340

How you will be assessed

Your solution will be graded using the following axis:


Scope

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. does your code implement the features required by our specification?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is there evidence of effort?

Correctness

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. did your code meet specifications?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. did your code meet unit tests?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code free of bugs?

DesignProduce a plan, simulation or model.

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code written well (i.e. clearly, efficiently, elegantly, and/or logically)?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code eliminating repetition?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code using functions appropriately?

Style

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code readable?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code commented?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. are your variables well named?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. do you adhere to style guide?
