Educational Philosophy: The curriculum for CS 219 is coherently designed to achieve the required academic standards. To make the learning fun and meaningful, this course will include presentations, quizzes, lectures, group discussions, programming assignments on JAVA and group projects and presentations.
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: The course arrangement include lectures, programming assignments, quizzes, examinations and a group final project that consists of a case study and presentation. Students may utilize the campus lab facilities or computers outside the campus for completing the programming assignments.
Grading: Your semester grade for this class will be based on a combination of a midterm exam, programming assignments, quizzes, group project, and final exam as follows: Project 10%Quizzes 20% Midterm Exam 20% Programming Assignments 20% Final Exam 30% The letter grade awarded shall correspond to the percentage received in the following manner: 90%-100% = "A" 80%-89% = "B" 70%-79% = "C" 60%-69% = "D" <60% = "F"
Late Submission of Course Materials: Completed lab assignments must be submitted on or before the due date in order to receive full credit. Late assignments will receive a 10 point deduction for each day that the lab assignment is late. You may submit the assignments in class on the due date or by e-mail with a date stamp of 10:00 P.M. on the due date.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional and courteous manner and maintain academic integrity according to the Park University policies. Students may discuss programming exercises in a general way, but the solutions must be done independently. You may not transcribe or copy a solution taken from another person or webpage.
