CompSci 94 Fall 2013: Assignment #5
PART 1 Due: Tuesday, Oct. 22 - beginning of class
PART 2 Due: Thursday, Oct. 24 - 11:59pm
This is individual work.
You may talk to other students in the
course about your design and for ideas, but you are to write the complete
Alice program by yourself.
receive help from the Professor, UTA's or TA.
These parts must be done in order! (Part 1 first, then Part 2).
The purpose of this assignment is for you to create an interactive
of your choice. See the projects 1-3 at the end of Chapter 5 for ideas
(pages 166-169), but
feel free to create your own.
First you should complete the tutorial called "A Simple Quiz" so you
can learn how to ask interactive questions. This world is not to turn in,
but to learn how to interactively prompt a question and create a response
based on the answer.
The animation must
include the following features:
- Must have at least six events and event handlers, at
least two of them with parameters.
- Must prompt the user with at least two questions and handle the
responses differently depending on the answer to the questions. (See the
extra handout called "A Simple Quiz".)
- You must include at least two billboards (2D image)
somewhere in your animation.
- Must describe in Alice how to interact with the animation. You
could put instructions on a billboard, make instructions with 3D text,
etc. The instructions
should appear at the beginning and then disappear.
Make sure there is a way to get them back (an event). Also make sure there
is time to read them.
- Must include one event whose event handler randomly
changes something at least four
different ways. (this is the topic for the reading Chap. 6, Tips and
Techniques and the next classwork). This can be one of your 6 events.
- The presentation must be nice. 20% of the grade is on presentation and
comments in code.
- Turn in your world on the Assignment page on the CompSci 94 webpages,
create an html page to show
at least two screenshots. (see below).
Part 1: Due Oct 22 in class
Turn in an EVENT storyboard. You should have at least four scenes
(and no more than 10) with a
picture (sketch), list of objects and a written description of what happens
in the scene. Note that an event storyboard includes scenes on events to
describe what happens when that event is invoked.
Part 2: Due Oct 24, 11:59pm
Implement your design and create an Alice world. Be sure your
animation has all the requirements listed above. Be sure to include
in your code.
This part will be turned in two ways.
- Turn in your Alice world on the assignment page on the CompSci 94 web
Create a text file called README.txt to include a comment with your
name, how long you worked on the
assignment and names of anyone you received help from.
Turn in both the Alice world and the README file
You could load the two files OR place them in a folder,
zip the folder with the two files and turn in the .zip file on blackboard under assignments.
Create an html page that has at least two snapshots of your
a description of what happens in the world. Link to this html page from your
CompSci 94 page. We will look for it on your web page.
