Simple task assignments can be fulfilled, and coding ability demonstrated, but at what risk, loss, or challenge? Understanding the overall use, project, purpose, and end result is more important than proving small coding elements where other solutions function better, more advanced, and offer better outputs, user experience and fulfillment.
Long term focus is better than learning to produce an immediate result; this is not the workplace – this is a learning environment that will be used later in the workplace, but not for a few years.
While more applications are required to create animations, other products offer a better user experience, takes less time, and produces far better output. Student assesses future use and applicability, finding no purpose or reason to invest in a test.
Grading the Assignment
It is requested that the grade be granted based on student’s completion of the assignment and assessment of the coding selection, being forced, rather than offered a simple compatible option that produces a commonly used result in a live workspace. Advanced Technology Masters and Doctors are not created to follow exactly what they are told to do; they are created to intellectually evaluate systems, procedures, processes, and find and evaluate alternate routes to completing tasks or achieving the same or better result where time and money is saved, as well as select and use systems that offer the best user experience, understanding differences and preferences. Tasks are not given to advanced technology professionals without background, reason, and associated product or purpose. This enables the entire project to be planned where the best software systems are selected in the beginning, subject to addition or change throughout. The more important learning of the task is to understand code organization, standardization, systems already in use, cost of changing selections, approaches, and final outputs.
