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 mustcount 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, al lCS 225 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 three categories ofquestions in the final exam:
(relevant learning outcomes – 4, 6, 9)
