Ethics Reviewer Requirements Background Initial problems The initial problem revolved around the difficulty in assessing student responses focusing on ethical dilemmas in case studies. Answers to questions such as “Would you defend a guilty man?” were not recorded and responses could not be analyzed amongst students in focus groups. Our client wished to use key theories and rules for particular situations whilst requiring the ability to use psychological markup data to see how it influences key decisions made by lawyers in the courtroom. Set of goals Based on our original discussion we created this initial list of necessary and potential goals for the application. These remained our goals for the extent of the project.
The app must be an interactive problem based learning aid for the class that discusses the Leveson Inquiry. This app must to contain a single timeline of the inquiry. Each of the relevant discussion points of the inquiry must be outlined along this timeline Each of the discussion points must bring up the video segment of that part of the inquiry. After the video finishes, the transcript and relevant rules must be shown Along with the transcript and rules there must be the relevant questions for the class to discuss. The class must also have a client version of the application, in which they could submit comments and answers to the questions/opinion polls. The comments that the students submit must appear separately, but anonymously, to the lecturer’s screen for the class to see (i.e. “a” said this, “b” said that, etc.). There should be a login, or method of securing access to the case study. There should be some way for the lecturer to group these opinions to represent an overview of the different views that people have/clickable multiple choice questions that are displayed as opinion poll graphs. The application should be web-based (Java Runtime embedded in web page?), without the need to download and install, etc. and comment data easier to send. It should be possible to use the same structure and idea to construct a similar timeline for case studies other than the Leveson inquiry. There could be a way of linking these opinions to a psychometric evaluation tool (questionnaire) that Richard Moorhead already uses to evaluate the psychometric profile of the students with each view. It could be possible in the future to develop this further to be used as a standalone self-evaluation case study for the Leveson inquiry for lawyers to use. We kept these requirements in mind when performing research. As can be seen from this previous section of the report, we evaluated various technologies that could be used to create a learning platform that online, collaborative and interactive.
MOSCOW Requirements The following requirements are expressed with regards to what we “must-have”, “should-have”, “could-have” and “would-have”.
