ICAA5054A Validate quality and completeness of design
Project 1 Stage 6:Validate quality for website
This unit is similar in nature to ICAT5083A (Develop and conduct client acceptance test) and the following recommendations are suggested for implementation:
ICAA5054A should focus on auditing the processes which result in quality and completeness of design, and on attainment of technical requirements.
ICAT5083A should focus on gaining client acceptance through testing, and on human computer interaction and attainment of functional requirements.
In order to achieve the required focus for assessment (project), the facilitator should select appropriate audit criteria in ICAA5054A, and appropriate acceptance criteria in ICAT5083A.
Since both units have been developed as a stand-alone resource, learners and facilitators may find a degree of overlap.
Learners are introduced to the concept of IT auditing, which involves objectively evaluating evidence gathered, making judgements, and reaching logical conclusions from the evidence. The first stage in the audit involves developing an audit plan. This may be risk based, or it may be focused on a specific area(s). The second stage in the audit involves the implementation of the audit. The last stage in the audit involves reporting to management, in the form of an Audit Finding Report and an Audit Report.
Purpose or Underpinning Ideas
Learners use the audit approach to validate the quality and completeness of their or another learner’s design. This resource naturally fits at the end of a development project. In order for learners to complete this competency they need to have a selection of documents to determine if a product was developed correctly.
It is recommended that learners have the following documents:
Initial design specifications
Learners may review their own work or may audit another learner’s work.
This resource uses online materials from recognised industry bodies. The resource also refers to tools that are available over the Internet that enable testing of websites and other computer applications. Learners should have access to the Internet in order to maximise the learning experience.
Possible alternative assessment
Possible alternative assessment or learner activity options for this competency could involve:
The RTO provides examples of a web-based product that the learner reviews. These should clearly compromise accepted web-based standards, with compromises including:
Code imbedded in a page that returns a result, and the result is clearly wrong
Code that forms part of the page, or is embedded in the page, and doesn’t work
Excessive amounts of code in a page; the code doesn’t cause the page to crash or return the wrong result, but does nothing for the page
Poorly structured code
Pages missing header content
