Educational Philosophy: All classes will combine lecture with group discussion. In addition, the instructor will facilitate classroom exercises for students to apply processes and methodologies in modeling techniques. Additional handouts will be provided periodically. Outside research for class discussion is encouraged. Students will be encourage to "think outside the box" when applying textbook knowledge when it comes to designing the database schema and graphical user interfaces, (input and output screens).
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a final exam which counts for 20% of the grade. Questions on the final exam will be developed to test at least eight of the ten course core objectives.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
a. Read all assignments from the text prior to class and participate in class discussion.
b. Take all tests (mid-term and final).
c. Draw a fully attributed data model using a self-selected form, normalize the data captured on it, and identify the metadata associated with the form data. Students will use Visio to draw their project's model. Those students unfamiliar with Visio will be given instruction on it's use.
Mid-term Exam 35% 100 pts.
Final Exam 35% 100 pts.
Modeling Project 15% 50 pts.
Presentation 10% 10 pts.
Class Participation 5%
Late Submission of Course Materials: If course material is late due to military deployment or other acceptable reasons and the student pre-coordinates with the instructor, the instructor will work with the student to meet their obligations. Additional/replacement work may include providing written responses to instructor identified end-of-chapter questions. May also include problems/exercises.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Class participation is expected and will be considered for part of the final grade. Students are expected to be on time, attend all classes, and remain in class for the entire class session. Roll will be taken during each class. Classes missed for legitimate reasons, such as illness or temporary duty, are excusable. Any student finding themselves unable to make a class, please notify the instructor. Three unexcused absences are considered excessive, and could be considered grounds for a failing grade. Students performing temporary duty must provide the instructor with a copy of orders. Students are encouraged to call the instructor. This syllabus is only a guide. The instructor reserves the right to deviate from it for the betterment of the class.
