About This Quiz & Worksheet

Test your ability to understand information about the system development life cycle. Quiz questions assess your knowledge of what RAD stands for and a simple incomplete version of the software being developed that meets some of the very basic requirements but lacks details.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments you'll be tested on the following:

  • Model that is intended for large and complicated projects
  • Software development with linear sequence from initiation and conception to maintenance
  • Model that demonstrates the relationship between each early phase of development
  • Simple, incomplete version of software with basic requirements
  • What RAD stands for

Skills Practiced

This worksheet and quiz let you practice the following skills:

  • Reading comprehension- ensure that you draw the most important information from the related systems development lesson
  • Information recall- access the knowledge you've gained regarding information about what RAD stands for
  • Knowledge application- use your knowledge to answer questions about a model that is intended for large and complicated projects

Additional Learning

To review concepts related to systems development, read through the brief lesson on Systems Development Life Cycles. This lesson will help you:

  • Identify the importance of system development and the phases that must occur such as software design, software coding, testing and debugging, installation and maintenance
  • Understand what the waterfall model is and how it works well for projects that are simple
  • Recall the v-model and how it is an extension of the waterfall model
  • Review what the iterative and incremental model is and how it uses a cyclical approach
  • Learn about the software prototyping model
  • Comprehend what the spiral model is and how it is best for large and complicated projects
  • Determine what a prototype is and how it relies on feedback from users
  • Study information about the rapid application development
