• avoid plagiarism
Assessment Task
Mahara keeps track of work each postgraduate student performs in various units. Upon graduation, a student can easily export all such assessment contents showcasing achievement work for future use.
In this assessment, you have to create an e-journal using a software tool named Mahara. You need to hit the Mahara printer image at the bottom of your Mahara webpage to obtain a PDFfile for submission and marking purposes. When printing a collection from your Mahara webpage to a PDF file, Mahara may append a very long site name together with ‘Central Queensland University’ to the collection name, please override such PDF name with ‘A1_StdID_Std Name’ when saving.
From the related weekly sections provided in the unit Moodle website, complete readings in the weekly sections Week 1 and Week 2 for tasks 1, 2, 3 and 4, and Week 3 and Week 4 for topics 5, 6 and 7. Complete the readings suggested for these 7 tasks as outlined below, before developing your journal entry in each related week into your e-journal in Mahara. In your reading, you need to analyse the issues involved. Try to jot down key points when reading through a concept. Using your learned concepts, your prior knowledge and related work experience, write down what you have found as missing or doubtful in the topic discussions, e.g. which idea discussed in a specific topic reading was not OK or is currently weak that needs improvement in your opinion. You also write why, what and how you see it needs to improve, when going through each reading.
1. The core competencies (according to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) that a business analyst should have;
2. The critical skills that organisations need a business analyst to possess in order to successfully design and develop a new technology or for technological redevelopment;
3. The models that can be used for strategy formulation analysing the external and internal environment;
4. The relationship between organisational strategy and knowledge audit plan;
5. Leadership and team building skills required by a Business Analyst;
6. Key processes involved in understanding the business context; and
7. Briefly describe the suitability and appropriateness of four of the investigation techniques in requirement elicitation.
Organisation of e-journal
Develop ONE Mahara webpage (i.e. whatever directly visible will be marked). The single webpage must contain all your answers (as different entries) for 7 different topics.
Please NEVER attempt to use ‘Tab’s or ‘Hyperlink’s (not fit for marking). Organise your ejournal in a way that for each topic heading is clearly presented and you present visible subheadings as synopsis, reflection, and critique. For each sub-heading, do as instructed below:
a. Synopsis: Here you provide a summary of each topic in a journal entry.
b. Reflection: You display your deeper understanding of each of the topics. Please link the topics as they logically follow in the business analysis process. Compare and identify the differences. Show your in-depth understanding of each topic. Use examples or cases to explain your points further. Explain as logical-thinking discussions which you may or may not refer to your examples or cases.
c. Critique: Here you critically analyse the practical application of the knowledge and understanding that you have gained in the professional practice of a Business Analyst
or yourself. Discuss what is lacking, what is not good enough, and ways to improve them. Explain why one or more topics in a reading needs to be questioned.
All Submissions Must Follow Strict Guidelines
This assessment item must strictly follow the guidelines below:
• For this assessment item, you will initially prepare an e-journal with all needed journal entries (i.e. your answer to each task item is a journal entry) using the software tool Mahara.
• Your e-journal must have the top line on your Mahara webpage indicating your student names, student ID and date last modified, e.g., John Smith, 1234567, Last modified 15 Mar 2019.
• All contents of your e-journal must be produced on a single Mahara webpage, i.e. without any use of tabs, embedded URL links and words/images with hyperlinks in all the entries. Any variations means your marker will only mark whatever he/she can see at the time of marking. Strictly follow these guidelines so you do not loose marks.
• To prepare work for submission, right click on your Mahara web page content and select Print, which will generate a PDF file for your submission. For the PDF file name, you need to re-name it into ‘A1_EJournal_YourID_YourName’ for submission.
• You need to upload this PDF file generated from your Mahara for your online submission. Ensure that this PDF file is NOT an image-only file or a corrupted file, so it can be safely checked through by Turnitin upon a submission.
• For any submission file that cannot be safely checked through Turnitin upon a submission, i.e. flagged as ‘Resubmit to Turnitin’ or shown as without a similarity report generated to help the teaching team for marking purposes, a ZERO mark will be awarded right away.
• This assignment must be submitted by strictly following all the related prescribed guidelines. Otherwise, you will receive a ZERO mark.
A submission not having carefully followed all the guidelines above will be awarded a ZERO mark outright.

develop a conceptual data model diagram

Objectives
• To develop a conceptual data model diagram
• To perform logical design (optional)
Assignment Specification
In this assignment, you need to perform the following tasks for the given case study:
• Draw an Entity Relationship (ER) diagram
• Perform logical design (optional)
• Create 3NF Relations (optional)
Please note that the above mentioned optional components, logical design and 3NF relations, will not be marked, however those tasks are expected to enrich your skills in the creation of database in future.
Case Study
CQParcels (CQPS) is well known for its parcel handling business in Australia. It collects the parcels from its customers and then transports and delivers them to the respective specified delivery addresses in Australia.
When a new customer (sender of the parcels) requests for parcel deliveries, CQPS collects many details that are related to them. Among the many information that is required to be collected at that time, the contact phone and email details of the customer are considered to be vital.
Whenever a customer requests a parcel delivery, the parcel-delivery information such as the delivery address and receiver details are collected. Subsequently, one of CQPS employees collects the parcel from the sender, verifies whether the address for delivery is mentioned on the parcel, and then creates an invoice for the charges related to its delivery.
For each parcel-delivery, CQPS also maintains the details of the employee involved, the date and time of collection/pick up and delivery. Though most of the parcels are delivered to the specified addressees, some of them occasionally are not deliverable due to incorrect/incomplete delivery address. Such parcels are returned to the senders.
When an undelivered parcel is not returned to the sender/customer within a month of collection, then the customer can lodge a compensation claim to CQPS. The compensation claims are verified and settled by CQPS based on their records.
Note:
The attributes of the possible entities have not been mentioned clearly. Hence, you need to assume at least two relevant attributes for each of the entities that you will identify for your ER diagram.
The delivery charge for a parcel need not be assumed as calculated value (i.e., it can be assumed to be a stored attribute).
Assignment Requirements
In this assignment, you need to create an Entity Relationship (ER) diagram relevant to the above case study and optionally perform logical design to produce appropriate 3NF Relations.
The attributes for various entities have not been purposely described in the case study so that the students are encouraged to further research and list the pertinent attributes in addition to the required identifier for each and every entity in their ERD.
1 Draw an appropriate ER diagram
Use the symbols as prescribed in your unit-textbook to draw the ER diagram (ERD) for the above case study.
Your ERD must
• show all necessary entities, attributes and relationships
• show identifiers/identifying attributes as necessary
• show multi-valued attributes, if any
• show participation and cardinality
• show associative entities, if appropriate
• show weak entities, if any
• use the notation described in the set text
• use consistent and appropriate naming for entities and attributes as specified in the unit text book
Some business rules or other aspects of the case study may not be clear to you when you read the case study. If this is the case, then you should either approach your lecturer or tutor for clarification, or you may simply make an assumption and then develop your ERD accordingly. For example, the case study might not mention all relevant participation information (also called minimum cardinalities). If so, you may make an assumption about what the minimum cardinalities might reasonably be, and then show them in your ERD accordingly. You should justify each assumption in terms of the business, for example: it is assumed that each customer must have at least one order because it is assumed that the business does not record customer details until the customer makes an order with them. To get yourself started, ask yourself, ‘If I were running this business, what things I need to keep a list of?’ Write those things down. For each thing, what information would you need to record about it? How can it be identified? The answers to these questions will help you to develop your ERD.
2 Assumptions and Business rules
Provide assumptions and business rules relevant to your ERD.
3 Create Logical Design (Optional):
If you would like to perform this optional component of this assignment, you can map your Entity Relationship diagram (ERD) into relations and make sure that all the relations are in 3NF. Provide all the relations in the following format:
Customer (CustomerId, CustomerName, Street, Suburb, State, PostCode, Email)
Invoice (InvoiceNumber, InvoiceDate, Total, CustomerId)
foreign key (CustomerId) references Customer(CustomerId)
How and what to submit:
You must make an electronic submission for this assignment using the appropriate assignment submission link in the unit web site.
You should submit a Microsoft Word document containing:
• A copy of your ERD.
• A list of business rules and assumptions including their justifications.
• 3NF Relations – optional
Your document should contain appropriate identifying information (your student number, name, unit number, etc.) and should contain appropriate headings for each section.
Important points
• You must work individually on this assignment.
• The model solution to this assignment will be released approximately TWO (2) weeks after the due date.
• Assignments that are submitted after the release of the model solution will receive zero marks.
• You must state in your assignment (at the end under the heading Acknowledgements is a good place) all materials and sources you used. This may be as simple as ‘This assignment was completed using only the COIT20247 unit materials’ to mention that you have used only the items provided by the unit COIT20247.
• Before submitting your assignment, review the marking criteria that are available in the assignment specification. Ensure that all the criteria are addressed in your submission.
• After submitting your assignment, please verify that your submission was successful, i.e. download your submitted files to ensure that they are correct.
• Penalty related to late submission and plagiarism is handled as per the university policies.
Marking Criteria:
Item Maximum Marks

critical essay on behaviorism about how it views child development.

have to write a critical essay on behaviorism about how it views child development.Then compare contrast with othe rlearning others justifying that every theory is important for child development not jut one.
Critical Essay on Lenses on Child Development
The goal of this task is to support students to develop critical thinking in relation to child development theories by analysing how different theories can be used in understanding children. Students are asked to explore one particular theory and counter-argue concepts using lenses from alternative theoretical perspectives. Students will justify how they will use multiple theories to analyse child development in order to plan effectively for children. It is recommended that students consider 1 —3 alternative theories that have been discussed so far in the unit.
This assignment requires you to:
1) select ONE of the following statements for your critical analysis.
1. Behaviourism: Childrens development is shaped by others through the form of reinforcement or stimulus. Children are therefore always passive recipients and dependent upon others in order to develop.
2. Developmentally Appropriate Practice/Maturational Theories: Childrens development is sequential and they generally follow the same pattern of development in various developmental domains (e.g. social, emotional, language, cognitive & physical development).
3. Psychoanalytical Theories: Childrens social and emotional competence develops as they enter a crisis mode in their life. How others respond to them and support them through this crisis determines how they will develop social and emotional competence in the future.
4. Humanism: In order for children and humans to understand and accept their self, acknowledge what they can do and make good decisions for themselves, various levels of needs must be met first. These needs include nurturing their physiological and safety needs, experiencing a sense of belonging and love, and feeling motivated to achieve.
2) Provide a description of the focus theory from your chosen statement and include how the key concepts view the development of the child. Using critical analysis, discuss the chosen statement by bringing in other theories that challenge some of the claims this statement makes (e.g. if you have chosen statement 2, you might use behaviourism to challenge that development and learning is sequential). In your discussion, also argue the possible problems that might arise from considering development through only one lens and discuss benefits of incorporating multiple theoretical underpinnings. You must draw upon current (published within the last 10 years) peer-reviewed literature to support your arguments.
1. Introduction
Provide a brief statement about the focus topic you have chosen and other theoretical
perspectives you will discuss. (100 words)
2. Main Arguments
This section can have 3 – 4 sub-headings outlining the key themes that you will be
discussing. (1600 words)
3. Conclusion
From the arguments, draw your conclusions. Highlight at least 2 implications that your
arguments have for analysing childrens development. (300 words)
4. References
Your reference list must be in accordance with APA 6- Edition referencing conventions and
must include at least 9 peer-reviewed articles or texts.
2000 words ± 10%
50%
Assignments should not exceed the word limit by more than 10% and therefore may only range between 1800 – 2200 words, not including the reference list. You must use black font only in Arial (size 11) or Times New Roman (size 12) with headings bold or italics, ensuring you are consistent with each level (e.g. Heading Level 1 – Bold, Heading Level 2 – Italics, etc). Ensure your line spacing is at least 1.5 and separate paragraphs are indented or double-spaced.

Short Answer Question 1:
A business agreement was drawn up between the parties, containing a clause which specifically stated there was no intention to create a legally binding agreement and that it was merely a record of the express thoughts of the parties concerned. In summary, the written understanding between them was not entered into as a legal agreement but was merely an honourable pledge based on mutual loyalty and friendly co-operation. One of the parties then used the agreement as the basis for a breach of contract action.

-Can offer latest Speedy Rice Cookers at $100 each.-
