Assessment 3 is an individual assessment. Assessment 3 is based on the attached case study.
In Assessment 3 - Modelling, you are required to complete tasks below which assess your general course knowledge, particularly your course knowledge on modelling diagrams from weeks 6-10 about different facets of systems development.
Please note that ALL submissions are passed through a computerized copy detection system and it is extremely easy for teaching staff to identify copied or otherwise plagiarised work.
Copying (plagiarism) can incur penalties ranging from deduction of marks to failing the course or even exclusion from the University.

The explanation of your assumptions can help the readers to understand what you have considered differently but as important criteria in producing your model.
Task 1 Data Flow Diagram – Context Diagram and Level 0 Diagram (20 marks):
You are assigned a role to develop a new system based on the project case study. Draw a context diagram and a level-0 DFD for it.
Task 2 Use Case Diagram (10 marks):
Draw a use case diagram by using the Level-0 DFD that you provided in Task 1.
Note: Your use case diagram directly relates to the information in Level-0 diagram, but it will also relate to the same system presented as in the context diagram.
