Textbook: JAVA An Introduction to Problem Solving & Programming by Walter Savitch -- Fourth Edition -- Prentice JavHall Publisher ISBN-0-13-149202-0
Textbooks can be purchased though the MBS bookstore
Textbooks can be purchased though the Parkville Bookstore
Course Description: This course continues the development of the programming and problem solving skills introduced in CS 151. Programming concepts will be put into practice by using Java for programming projects. Students will learn about object-oriented programming and two of its key components - inheritance and polymorphism. Additionally, students will learn about these topics: graphical user interface components, event driven programming, exception handling, files. Prerequisites: Any math course ? <a href='index.aspx?Class=MA131'>MA131</a>, a grade of ‘C' or better in <a href='index.aspx?Class=CS151'>CS151</a>. Suggested Prerequisite: <a href='index.aspx?Class=CS140'>CS140</a>. 3:0:3
Educational Philosophy: The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues and especially through programming exercises. Students will apply and reinforce knowledge gained through the preceeding by solving practical problems.
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 219 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 of questions in the final exam:
(relevant learning outcomes – 2, 5, 7)
Given a problem description, produce a solution in the form of a short program or a method(s).
Exam questions: 25-26
Total points: 17½
See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.
(relevant learning outcomes – 1, 6, 7)
Short-answer, multiple-choice, and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 219 concepts.
Exam questions: 1-20
Total points: 20
(relevant learning outcomes – 4, 7)
Short answer questions that ask the student to trace and debug code fragments and/or programs.
Exam questions: 21-24
Total points: 6½
The ICS Program Coordinator will analyze core assessment results for 20% of all ICS courses offered. In analyzing the results, the ICS Program Coordinator will use the following grading rubric and compare results across all instructional modalities.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Online activities - discussions, journals, quizzes as well as programming assignments and a proctored final exam will be userd to determine the final grade.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Students must make prior arrangement with the instructor if work is going to be turned in late.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Proper conduct is expected in all online classes. Rudeness, vulgarity or other offensive behavior in discussion areas will not be tolerated.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.

Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.

Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
