BIS1003 Introduction To Programming Assignment Sample

Assessment 4 Details:

EduWra Company pointed you to develop a program to assist in predicting the customer's preferences. This company sells books online. The program would calculate the average rating for all the books in the dataset and display the highest rated books. We could better predict what a customer might like by considering the customer's actual ratings in the past and how these ratings compare to the ratings given by other customers.
The assessment has two tasks – Task 1: implement the program in Python. Task 2: write a formal report.

Task 1:

Implement the program in Python. Comment on your code as necessary to explain it clearly. Your task for this project is to write a program that takes people's book ratings and makes book recommendations to others using the average rating technique. The program will read customers data from a text file (you find the text file on Canvas site for this unit) that contains sets of three lines about each customer. The first line will have the customer's username, the second line book title, and the third line the rating that is given to the book.

Task 2:

Each group should write a formal report that includes:

- A cove page for your assignment contains the group members' names and contribution percentages (each student must state which parts of the project have been completed). If your name is not on the cover page, you will be given zero.

- Draw system flowchart/s that present the steps of the algorithm required to perform the major system tasks.

- You need to test your program for assignment help by selecting at least three sets of testing data. Provide the results of testing your program with different values and record the testing results using the testing table below.

- Copy the code to your report.

- Take screenshots of the program output.



1. Read ratings.txt file

2. Store each bookname from given books

3. Get Rating for each user and corresponding books

4. Get recommendation
