Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment tool that measures the degree to which students learn the course's learning outcomes. School policy dictates that a student's performance on the core assessment tool must count for at least 20% of the student's total course grade. For this course, the tool consists of the final exam. Therefore, the final exam must count for at least 20% of the student's total course grade (preferably, it will count for more). School policy dictates that the core assessment tool must cover at least 75% of a course's learning outcomes. To ensure compliance, all CS 321 instructors are required to give the same final exam. See the attached final exam artifact and artifact solution. To prevent cheating, students are strictly forbidden from keeping the final exam, the solutions, or copies of either.
There are four categories of questions in the final exam:
(relevant learning outcomes – 2, 6)
Given a problem description, produce a solution in the form of a short program or a method(s).
Exam questions: 25
See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.
Communication: (relevant learning outcome – 5)
Short answer questions that ask the student to explain various concepts and trace and debug code fragments and/or programs.
Exam questions: 19-25
Key discipline concepts/terminology:
(relevant learning outcomes – 1, 5, 6)
Multiple-choice and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 321 concepts.
Exam questions: 1-18
(relevant learning outcomes – 4, 6)
Exam questions: 19-24
The ICS Program Coordinator will analyze core assessment results for a sampling of all ICS courses offered. In analyzing the results, the ICS Program Coordinator will grade the exams using the (very specific) grading criteria shown on the exam solution. The final grade is in the form of a percentage where the percentages equate to the following levels of success:
Does not meet expectations
65% to 84%
No exam graded.
The ICS Program Coordinator will use the core assessment scores to compare results across all instructional modalities.
This is a narrative detailed list of ALL of the assignments and assessments that are graded. You are required to post your introduction, and complete the proctor request form in week 4, in order to pass the course. You are required to post your introduction, and complete the proctor request form by Friday of week 4. Failure to complete a proctored final exam for any reason will result in an automatic F in the course. See the Course Schedule in the Online Classroom for due dates for all of the assignments.
In this course, the discussion threads are worth 40% of your final grade. The discussion threads will include additional required - but non-graded activities including practicing creating web programs which will help you prepare for your homework projects. Participation includes weekly attendance, active involvement in course functions, contribution to threaded discussions, and support of other classmates. Your discussion grade is weighted at 50 points per week. You are expected to participate in all discussions.
The homework projects are worth 30 percent of your final grade. Because of the nature of this course and the core learning outcomes, it is important that you spend your time creating web programs. The assignments cover ASP.NET web applications, web databases, and Java Server Pages. Please print and read the assignment directions carefully each week. Each homework assignment is worth 100 points. If you have difficulty with the assignments, please post the question to the weekly Question and Answer discussion thread. For each homework assignment, the student is expected to upload the assignment to the Dropbox in a single zip file. Failure to follow directions in submitting the assignment may results in losing up to a full letter grade on the assignment. In this course the quizzes are worth 10% of your final grade. If you have difficulty with this assignment, please post the question to the Question and Answer discussion thread. The Q & A is for you to communicate with your students and instructor, like a large study group. Instructors will participate in the weekly discussion threads a minimum four days per week.
The total points possible are 1000 points.
