Task Summary
In response to the issues raised in the ‘online university enrolment system’ case study provided,
identify the functional and non-functional requirement for an online enrolment system and build and
document a set of use cases for that system.
Context
Requirement analysis techniques and skills are of fundamental importance to a Business Analyst, who
is often required to help business users in terms of identifying what they really need in their new
systems. This assessment allows you to enhance your requirement analysis techniques and skills by
capturing the business requirement of a system, identify “what” the proposed system will do, “how”
the system will perform those tasks, and communicate the identified requirement through a set of
use case diagrams and their associated documentations.

Instructions
1. Please read the attached MIS605_ Assessment 1_Case Study. Note that every piece of
information provided in the following case serves a purpose.
2. Once you have completed reading the case study. Please answer the following questions:
Question 1.
(a) Who are the stakeholders in this project? Please list at least four stakeholders. (2 marks)
(b) Who are the Actors in this System? Please list at least four actors (4 mark)
Question 2.
Identify and list at least TEN (10) major functional requirements for the System. (20 marks)
Question 3.
Using your own experience with similar online student enrolment systems and the information
provided in the case study, identify and list at least FIVE (5) non-functional requirements for the
System. Explain and justify each non-functional requirement. (20 marks)
Question 4.
Using your own experience with similar online student enrolment systems and the information
provided in the case study, build a comprehensive set of use case diagrams for the System using MS
Visio. (30 marks)
Please note that the case study has not and does not intend to provide a comprehensive description
of requirements for the System. This means that you are required to use your own experience with
information systems in general and online student enrolment systems in particular to develop this set
of use case diagrams. For example, would Student Enrolment Officers be required to log into the
System before performing any tasks?
Question 5.
Based on the use case diagrams you built in Question 4, develop and document two elaborated use
cases. For each of the two use cases, please document the following:
 Use Case Name (1 mark each)
 ID (1 mark each)
 Priority (1 mark each)
 Actor (1 mark each)
 Description (1 mark each)
 Trigger (1 mark each)
MIS605_Assessment 1_Brief_Written Assessment Page 3 of 7
 Precondition (1 mark each)
 Normal Course (2 marks each)
 Alternative courses (1 mark each)
 Postconditions (1 mark each)
 Exceptions (1 mark each)
(24 marks)
3. Please note that your answers must relate to the case study provided.
Word Count and Layout
 The total word count for the written assessment should be no more than 2000 words.
 Please provide all your answers in a MS word document.
 Please note that you are NOT required to copy the questions over to the MS Word document.
Use the question number to indicate which question your answer relates to.
 The recommended font size is 12 with 1.5 spacing.
