NOTE: Kindly share your UPDATED exam paper to the LIVE EXPERT with an updated Case Study (if any)

You have been appointed by CDE Bank who have launched a banking website to allow customers to carry out transactions online. You will join a team of existing staff but your computing knowledge and expertise is greater than other staff. Customers of the bank can also purchase goods and services online by using their bank details. However, the CEO of CDE Bank has asked you to investigate how secure the online banking and ecommerce solutions are. In particular the CEO would like you to investigate security around when customers are making transactions online. He has recruited you to plan and create a software solution which can be used to detect phishing websites. You will need to analyse the tasks and project manage the software development to come up with a solution to solve this problem, using software engineering tools and techniques.

Activity 1
Produce a booklet for other members of the team which explains:

  • software engineering principles and practices
  • software engineering methods and techniques
  • modelling tools that can be used for software development and engineering
  • the structure of software engineering teams including the programming teams and software engineering roles and tasks. You should explain how the roles are interlinked.

In addition in the booklet you must evaluate the multidisciplinary nature of software development.
LO1 and LO2 Assessment criteria: 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3

Activity 2
Based on the organisations requirement for a software solution which can be used to identify phishing websites, produce a project plan for the software development ensuring you apply software engineering approaches.
LO3 Assessment criteria: 3.1

Activity 3
Your project plan has been approved by the CEO of CDE bank and therefore you have been given permission to model the software solution using a range of software engineering methods. Produce a log of progress including screen recordings to show the software development process. Add a voice over recording which explains the different methods of data verification and validation that you have used. Explain why these are important in systems development.
LO3 Assessment criteria: 3.2, 3.3

Guidelines for assessors
The assignments submitted by learners must achieve the learning outcomes and meet the standards specified by the assessment criteria for the unit. The suggested evidence below is how learners can demonstrate that they have met the required standard.

Suggested evidence


AC 1.1, 1.2, 1.3,
2.1, 2.2, 2.3

The learner can produce a generic theoretical booklet which demonstrates their understanding of the software engineering approach to the design and development of software. The learners should use examples to help them show their knowledge of the principles and practices.

The booklet should be supported with accurate references. It should have a full explanation of the different software engineering principles and the explanation should go beyond specific technologies. The learners should explain specific software engineering methods and techniques and should discuss how they can be employed to improve the quality of software development. The learners should investigate new techniques and modelling tools and explain how they are being used, referring to industry best practice.

The learners should also investigate and explain the most commonly used software engineering practices that are employed in business. The learners should investigate and explain the different team roles that are involved throughout software engineering development and ideally they could support their evidence with copies of job descriptions/person specifications. However they need to show how the different roles are related throughout the process. 

The learners will conclude the booklet with a balanced evaluation of the multidisciplinary nature of software development including examples to support their work.


LO3 AC3.1

Based on the work completed for Activity 1, learners need to produce a detailed project plan. The plan must outline clearly the software engineering solution that is proposed to identify phishing websites during ecommerce transactions. Software engineering approaches should also be highlighted throughout the project.


AC 3.2, 3.3

Based on the scenario, the learners will create a software solution using software engineering principles and practices to solve the problem. They will need to keep evidence throughout the process and a reflective log supported with screen shots or video clips showing the development process. The evidence needs to show the different software engineering approaches which have been employed. An observation report or witness testimony could also be produced to comment on the learner’s performance throughout the process. The evidence will need to clearly demonstrate the software engineering methods that have been used.

The student could produce a written reflection or add voice over to their video screen shots which explains the different validation and verification techniques that have been used throughout the software development. They should outline the importance and role of these tools in software development.
