What is the PAT?
The PAT is a software development project in which you will have an opportunity to demonstrate your programming skills and understanding of the relationship between the different areas of solution development. You will also be required to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the software development life cycle through analysis, design, coding and testing of your project. You will have to show effective use of the software design tools and techniques which you have studied. You need to provide the following outputs:
A report where you (Phase 1)
discuss the research/investigation done regarding the project provide a brief descritption of the purpose and scope of your project provide analysis of a possible solution
a document outliing the system design (Phase 2)
a working Scratch program, fully documented, that implements the planned solution (Phase 3) Note:
You will also be required to demonstrate and discuss your program during a debriefing session. Mark Allocation

Final product and impression
The PAT counts 25% of your final mark for IT, therefore it is crucial that you strive to produce work of a high standard. The PAT is a compulsory component of the final end-of-year examination for IT. You need to complete your PAT before you start the Grade 10 end-of-year examination. Not submitting your PAT or any part of the PAT, will mean that you will be awarded a zero (“0”) for the PAT component of the examination or the parts not submitted.
Educational software are programs that are designed to help people to learn about certain subjects, expand concepts, reinforce development, understand a concept, or assist them in learning specific subject content or a skill as they use the program. Considering the requirements specified in this document (see PAT Requirements, p6), choose any school subject and develop a Delphi/Java educational software program to support teaching and learning in South African schools. Ideas for educational software:
An educational game
Drilling mathematical concepts such as addition,...
