Task 1

Answer the following questions.

1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a small number of sectors per disk cluster? (Hint: You may want to think about retrieval time and the required lifetime of the archives.)

2. Discuss the following questions relative to compilers:
a. Which phase of a compiler would give you a syntax error?
b. Which phase complains about undefined variables?
c. If you try to add an integer to a character string, which compiler phase would emit the error message?

3. Describe in your own words the difference between the role of a system analyst and the role of a program analyst.

4. Describe the process management and memory management activities performed by the Operating System.

5. You have been asked to advise a small business of their network requirements. The business utilises 3 offices in each of two building separated by a roadway approximately 15 metres wide. The offices are used by 10 employees, 6 in one building and 4 in the other. The equipment required includes desktop computers, notebooks, printers, shared storage and an internet connection. Each building has separate telephone connections. Investigate alternatives.

Using the key terms from this topic, plan the network you would suggest and justify your choice of wired or wireless. Include in your discussion the components and type of network topology. Make sure you identify any assumptions in your design.

You need to submit

  • A one-page schematic diagram of the network plan. You may use any drawing package such as Microsoft Visio or, under Linux, Skencil.
  • A list of all equipment needed.
  • A one- page report justifying your choices.

Task 2

For this task you are required to produce a web site using HTML. It is required that you will create the pages for your site using only a simple editor like Notepad. Your web site is to be about you, (for example your interests or hobbies, the area you live in etc.). You will upload the files for your web site to a web server, publishing your web site on the WWW. You will also describe some aspects of your web site in your word-processed submission.

Web site content and construction
Your site should identify you to others and portray a topic that is an interest you may have. Your word-processed submission must identify the intent of your web-site.

Your web site will be published. If you have privacy concerns then make up the information about who you are. You should certainly avoid using information like addresses and telephone numbers.

  • You need to consider design, layout, navigation and appropriateness of material for your site.
  • You must create the pages for your site using a simple editing tool such as Notepad (not a Web page generator like FrontPage, Dreamweaver, etc.). If you use a web page generator you will receive no marks for your HTML.
  • Your site should be at least three (3) and no more than four (4) pages.
  • It should contain links to other sites related to its intent. These links should be used within a context in which they are relevant. Do not just have a page of 'my favourite links'.
  • The internal links between the pages and resources that you provide must be relative links so that you web site will work properly when you transfer it to the server. You must not use any relative links that use access above your web site's top directory. Any absolute links used must be to public sites.
  • It should load quickly - do not go overboard with graphics (read the relevant sections of the study resources for appropriate use of graphics). Ideally the total size for all the files for each page should beless than 300KB

Required HTML features

It is expected that you will include examples of the following:

  • different fonts
  • tables
  • lists
  • a variety of hypertext links
  • should also include graphics
  • meta tags
  • comment tags


You must acknowledge your use of resources (images, background wallpapers or patterns etc.) by listing the URLs, either at the bottom of your home page, or on a separate page linked from your home page. Your references must also include any books or online resources used in learning HTML and creating your site.

Material to submit
The following material must be submitted for this task:

  • Transfer the files of your web site to the web server, placing them in your public_html directory. After you have done this check your web site with your browser to ensure that the links and graphics still work.
  • In the word-processed document of your assignment submission, describe the intent of your web site and its structure, including the URL of your web site and a list of the names of the directories and files used.


This assignment has been designed to allow students to test and demonstrate their ability to:

  • identify and describe telecommunication components;
  • describe the characteristics of operating systems and compare different operating systems;
  • use a hypertext mark-up language to produce basic Web documents;
  • discuss the general trends in technologies including examples of leading edge developments;
  • compare the roles of different sectors of the information technology industry.

Marking criteria

These criteria will be used to evaluate Assignment 2:

  • The tasks are performed as specified and the assignment is submitted as required
  • Appropriate understanding of the subject area is demonstrated, including correct use of appropriate techniques
  • Explanations and discussions are cogent and use clear and correct English expression
  • Appropriate referencing is used


For this assignment you need to submit, to Turnitin, a word-processed document as described under the Presentation heading in the Assessment Information section of this subject outline.


To complete this assignment you might need to have covered materials from topic 6 to topic 10.
