The instructor's philosophy is one of interaction through lectures, guided discussions, hands-on projects, and examinations. The instructor will engage each student in discussion lead learning to encourage an understanding of the basic concepts of computer programming and the design of computer programs.
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:
Course outcomes and objectives will be assessed through examinations, quizzes, and hands-on program projects.
The final grade will be determined using the following measurements:
Projects (5/100 pts) 500 points
Midterm 250 points
Final 250 points
The following will be used to assign course letter grades:
1000 – 900 A
899 – 800 B
799 – 700 C
699 – 600 D
599 – 0 F
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Extremely late submission of work will not be tolerated or accepted. 10% of project's point value will be deducted for late submission.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are required to read all assigned material prior to class and be prepared to discuss the assigned material. Students are required to complete all lab and homework projects. Students are responsible for all work assigned to be submitted by the due date. Students are responsible for all work when absent from class. The instructor reserves the right to add or take away any part of these requirements.
