The INF1520 exam
Past exam papers
The exam in Oct/Nov 2011
The paper consisted of 50 multiple choice questions. It was similar to the assignments and the paper from May/June 2011. In fact many of the questions were exactly the same.
The exam in Oct/Nov 2008
This paper had the same format as in 2007. The written questions covered, inter alia, the gulfs of execution and evaluation (using a rather silly scenario in which you had to boil a cup of tea), and evaluation techniques.
The exam in Oct/Nov 2007
You really had to know your stuff. It was important to remember the names of people who had contributed guidelines or heuristics. The format was 60% multiple choice and 40% paragraph type answers.
Examples of questions asked:
- Describe the Hawthorn Effect and the type of evaluation that this influences
- Discuss internationalisation and localisation, mentioning both overt and covert factors
The exam in Oct/Nov 2003
This exam was definitely not a breeze. You really had to know your work, and they didn't ask any of the obvious questions. Only 3 questions came from the assignments, so as they say in the exam tutorial letter, you won't be able to pass by studying just from the assignments. 60% of the exam was multiple-choice and the remaining questions required paragraph-type answers.
