You have been asked to write a program to grade several multiple-choic

This answer was rated:

You have been asked to write a program to grade several multiple-choice exams. The exam has 20 questions, each answered with a letter in the range of ‘a’ through ‘f’. The answers key is declared in the program as constant of type string. An example of answer key is “abcdefabcdefabcdefab”. Your program should work for any other answer key.

The program should first ask users for the number of students to be graded. Then it should have a while loop in the main function. For each student, the loop repeatedly asks users to enter a student ID number and a string of characters representing the answers of the student. The student ID number is XXXXX type string and should contain exactly 7 digits (each digit between ‘0’ and’9’). If a student ID number is XXXXX the program displays and error message and prompts the user to re-enter that student information. If a student gives more answers than necessary (more than 20 in our case), the program automatically truncates the extra answers. On the other hand, if a student provides less number of answers, the remaining unanswered questions are considered as being answered wrongly. If for a given answer, the user enters a letter other than ‘a’, b’, ‘c’, ‘d’, ‘e’, or ‘f’ then the question is considered as being wrongly answered.

Furthermore, in each while loop in the main routine, your program should compute a percentile score for the student by comparing the answers for that student to the answers key, and a curved grade in ‘A’ though ‘F’ based on the following:

• >=90 A
• =80 B
• = 70 C
• = 60 D
• = 50 E
• <50 F


The results of each student are displayed by the student in the format: percentile score and a curved grade in ‘A’ though ‘F’.

The program should also compute and display the following statistics for the graded answers: Average score, Maximum score, and Minimum score.

You are welcome.
Ok Sorry for delay....

I have compressed the complete project into one file and am uploading the link to download the compressed folder.
After downloading Extract the contents at one place and Open the SLN File in the Folder to open the project in Visual Studio.

Since you will be using VS 2012 so It will ask to convert for compatibility so do the NEXT and NEXT Steps and when its compatibility converson is done than Run the Project to get the Output.

I have kept the project very basic and simple.... and have followed the complete specification provided by you.

Please download the compressed project(Student Grade.zip)<SIZE - 5.14 MB> from the link below:

the code looks great i just have a few questions


can u help me with this


Component 1: Software System Design


 


Use the function decomposition method to describe all functions that you will implement in this project. Use arrow lines to indicate the relationship among all functions, and their calling sequence. Compare the merits of alternative designs


 


and


 


Component 3: Assurance of Software Correctness


 


Find out a set of preconditions and postconditions for each function in this project. In your implementation, use assert( ) to accomplish the goal of software correctness assurance. Summarize the result in the following table.


 

Are these questions with respect to this project?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes

I never used any function because it was never mentioned to use so there will be no reply for the abobe questions for that I will have to modify the code.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No function are something like main() thats a function....
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I think it should be fine but did u use any preconditions or post conditions ?
Precondition and post conditions exists for functions....

Since we have only main function so I can provide you detail for that.

MAIN FUNCTION:
PRE-CONDITION: Nothing
POST-CONDITION: A Valid Input of Student ID is Taken with Answers and Based on which We Display the Output which comprises of Score, Grade and an Overall Average value along with Maximum and Minimum Score among all students.

Thats all....
