QNO.2. Read the attached Ethics-IV.pdf which continues the discussion on how software engineers can actually live up to ethical standards and what is the end goal of an ethical life in software engineering.
Then proceed to answer the questions inside the reading:
- Questions 6.1 and 6.2
- Question 7.1
Because for many ethics questions there is no absolutely right or wrong answers as such, your responses will be graded based on completeness and thoughtfulness as opposed to rote or perfunctory ones. There are three grade levels for this assignment based on your responses to all the questions: 20 (no reasoning in responses), 35 (minimal to little reasoning), and 50 (sufficient reasoning and consideration).
Write your answers in a Word file using Times New Roman font (no smaller than 10 pt but no bigger than 12 pt), single spacing, 1″ margins on all sides.
Save your file as Ethics_4_FL where FL is your first and last name initial and Submit.
