The intent of the paper is to assess the students understanding of the core learning, outcomes so it is necessary that the student "cover" the outcomes as described above. You'll need to define the JSF system, at what point in the design process is the JSF (CLO 1). Has the website addressed the cost effectiveness of the system (CLO 2) and how do they appear to have analyzed the costs (CLO 3)? What factors of operational feasibility have been addressed (CLO 5)?
