# Coursework¶

## Phase Test¶

This will be an online **Moodle Quiz**.

- The phase test will be
**online only**, not on campus. - Once you start the test you will get
**2 hours to complete it**. - You do the test during the
**4-hour window 9am-1pm**on**Wednesday 27**.^{th}October, 2021

Also, to be clear, this is the only assessment that contributes to your *coursework mark*, which is worth **50% of the module mark**.

The Phase Test covers the first 5 weeks (Models of Computation: DFA, NFA, PDA, CFG), assessing learning outcomes 1 and 2.

Week | Theme | Lecture |
---|---|---|

1 | Introduction | Problems! |

2 | Models of Computation | DFAs & NFA |

3 | Models of Computation | NFA equiv. DFA & Regular Expressions |

4 | Models of Computation | Limits of the Regular Languages, Grammars |

5 | Models of Computation | Context-Free Languages (CFLs) [PDAs/CFGs] |

## Practice test¶

The Practice Phase-Test is now available.

You can attempt it multiple times, but I recommend you only attempt it every other day or so after reviewing the weak areas you discovered on your previous attempt.

Tip

Memorising answers to the practice test is of very little value.
