ICS 120 – [October 25, 2014]

We had our retake in our quiz 7 last meeting. I think most of us failed that quiz. Fortunately I passed the retake and I got a score of 42 out of 50. We held our class in laboratory A if I’m not mistaken because most of the classrooms were occupied by 4th year students having their defense. Our professor discussed new chapters to us after the retake.

After the discussion, we were given time to do our websites. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to bring my flash drive that contains our final website. So we just told our professor about that matter. Our site is about 95% complete, the only thing that needs to be fixed is the positioning of the divs. I think we can still make our website somehow more attractive to the users.

I’m hoping that we will be able to finish our website this vacation so that we will not cram for the upcoming defense. We also have our upcoming Microsoft certification exam this November 13 I think. I know that the following weeks will test our patience, skills and emotional stability maybe? Haha anyway best of luck to us students!

This was the day that we presented to our professor our website. Fortunately, we were able to include a database in it and the user can do some transactions. Although we still have some minor issues to fix such as the responsiveness of the navigation bar and validation of input. I wasn’t able to put a validation because I prefer to put the transaction part first because I think that’s what is essential in an e-commerce website.

We took our quiz 7 in laboratory. I was really not prepared for that quiz because I wasn’t able to read any single topic of chapters 9 and 10 since I’m doing our website. So yeah I failed the quiz 7. I felt bad for it because that was the first time I failed a quiz in ICS 120. Well, it’s a lesson for me to learn. I should always manage my time wisely.

After the quiz, Miss Marikit told the class that she’ll extend the checking of sites until 5:30pm. But since our website can perform transactions already and it has a database, I and my group mate were dismissed early. I’m looking forward that we’ll be able to finish our website on time. All we need is a little more effort.

As far as I can remember, I was late about 40 minutes that day. It was the day we were supposed to present our website to our professor. As I enter the room, I saw my classmates reading the last chapter our professor discussed, She wasn’t inside our classroom so I thought she was absent that time. But to my surprise, I learned from my classmate that we’re going to have our quiz 6 in laboratory.

I didn’t know that we’ll be having our quiz that day. What I did was I just skim read the coverage of the quiz. And fortunately I passed it. In the laboratory, Miss Marikit checked our initial designs of our websites. The score for our initial designs will be equivalent to our laboratory 6 activity. Luckily, we got a grade of 100.

Our professor told us to do some revisions on the design of our home page. She told us that the cart should just appear once the user clicked on the store or do some transaction. She also suggested that the order now button shouldn’t overlap the image slider. We changed our design and did what our instructor suggested.

Last meeting, the discussion was all about chapters 7 and 8. Our professor told us there will be evaluators that will visit our class, so she reminded us to come early to class. Unfortunately, I was about 30 minutes late that day. Nevertheless, I was able to catch up to what our professor was discussing. For me the topics were quite easy to understand. We had our seatwork then after the discussion. I’m glad that I passed that seatwork.

In our laboratory, Ma’am Kit announced when our defense will happen. She also announced that we need to put our works in a free hosting site. Since I already made a layout for our website, all we need to worry about is the back-end of it. We’ll make sure that we will finish our project on time.

Summing up this blog, this week is still a little bit light loaded, although I’m slightly pressured already because of the fact that finals week is creeping up on a slow but steady pace and eventually, we will face the last lap of this semester. No matter what happen, I’ll do my best so that in the end, I’ll have no regrets.
