Core Assessment:



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 paper, which counts for 20% of the grade. The final paper requires that an artifact be developed to test at least seven of the eight course core objectives.


1. Recognize the major historical implications of information technology.


2. Assess some of the basic concepts of a global society influenced by
Information Technology. (Singapore
social system, English trading system, Privacy issues.)*


3. Compare some of the effects of technology upon the cultures of different
ethnic and racial groups in the United
States
and other countries. (Literacy and
Artistic Expression in all types of media.)*

to emerging technologies and recognize, analyze and evaluate their possible
effects upon the social, cultural, economic, and ethical values of the United States
and the world. Knowledge of the history of Information Technology is necessary.


5.  Work as a member of a group in exchanging knowledge and ideas about technology and
its role in the world.


6. Collaborate with a group applying the literacies listed above in a
mini-term paper format at least 15 to 18 pages (double-spaced) in length. This
will provide practice in a group setting before writing the individual term
paper.


7. Maintain an individual electronic journal of all readings and reference
sources in a word-processed journal to be handed in bi-weekly.


8. Write a term paper using a modified format similar to that found in

  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
