Course Description:
 This course will present lessions on systemm design, architecture, modeling, database design, output design, prototyping, input design, user interface design, and systems contruction and implementation.  The student will perform a system analysis as a group project and use Visible Analyst as a CASE tool.

Educational Philosophy:
The instructor will present the material in a fully understandable manner and in an open unthreatening environment.  The instructor expects students to work hard to gain the most knowledge about systems analysis and design from the course.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Distinguish logical versus physical models and translate logical process and data models into physical design models using design/ CASE software.
  2. Evaluate and make architectural design decisions given a problem scenario: Client Server, Centralized versus Decentralized, Database and distribution of data, User and system interface alternatives (inputs/outputs)
  3. Explain design principles for Input/Output with regard to human interaction and user acceptability.
  4. Explain advantages and disadvantages of data storage options (i.e. Relational Database, Object Database, Conventional Files and Data Warehouse)
  5. Practice key concepts of analysis and design as well as advance techniques such as JAD, Prototyping, USE CASES and/or other OOA/OOD techniques.
  6. Evaluate strengths/weaknesses and applicable roles of several strategies/methodologies for design of information systems including Model Driven, RAD, Agile, OO development, and Prototyping.
  7. Apply Quality Assurance steps that can be taken in all phases of development to ensure a quality product and user acceptance.
  8. Communicate both orally and in writing as an individual and as a member of a team.


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 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.

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.   Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89
Any perception of cheating will be grounds for an investigation.  Cheating will mean dismissal from the class with a grade of F.

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. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  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 "W".
  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.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.

Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-90
The instructor expects you to be in class on the dates and times scheduled.  The instructor must be notified ahead of time for an absence to be excused.

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. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
