Course Description:
This course continues the development of the Web programming skills introduced in CS 321. While CS 321 emphasizes client-side Web programming, CS 322 emphasizes server-side Web programming. Server-side concepts will be put into practice by using an HTML-embedded language such as JSP and/or ASP.NET. Students will be expected to implement applications that utilize database back-ends. Students may be introduced to Server-Side Includes, servlets, and/or XML. Due to the particularly dynamic nature of the Web environment, course content will change as appropriate. PREREQUISITE: CS 321. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

My philosophy is to utilize homework, quizzes, examinations, and hands on lab assignments to emphasize the lecture given in class. I also believe students should participate in the class discussion in order to get the most out of the learning experience.  In this course all exercises started in class must be completed before the next meeting.
 
 

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Explain basic server-side Web programming concepts - servlets, JSP, ASP, database connectivity
  2. Demonstrate creativity and problem-solving skills.
  3. Upload Web programs to a Web server.
  4. Debug and test Web programs.
  5. Write Web pages and Web programs that use proper style.
  6. Write Web pages and Web programs that use: -concepts covered in CS 321 - XHTML, cascading style sheets, Dynamic HTML, Javascript, forms -JSP -ASP.NET -database connectivity -Server Side Includes (optional)


Core Assessment:

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 321 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 four categories of questions in the final exam: 

Critical thinking:

(relevant learning outcomes – 2, 6)

Given a problem description, produce a solution in the form of a short program or a method(s).

Exam questions: 25

See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.

Communication: (relevant learning outcome – 5)

Given a problem description, produce a solution in the form of a short program or a method(s).

Short answer questions that ask the student to explain various concepts and trace and debug code fragments and/or programs.

Exam questions: 19-25

See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.

Key discipline concepts/terminology:

(relevant learning outcomes – 1, 5, 6)

Multiple-choice and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 321 concepts.

Exam questions: 1-18

See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.

Technical skills:

(relevant learning outcomes – 4, 6)

Short answer questions that ask the student to explain various concepts and trace and debug code fragments and/or programs.

Exam questions: 19-24

See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.

 The ICS Program Coordinator will analyze core assessment results for a sampling of all ICS courses offered. In analyzing the results, the ICS Program Coordinator will grade the exams using the (very specific) grading criteria shown on the exam solution. The final grade is in the form of a percentage where the percentages equate to the following levels of success:

 

Exceeds expectations

Meets expectations

Does not meet expectations

No evidence

≥ 85%

65% to 84%

< 65%

No exam graded.

 

The ICS Program Coordinator will use the core assessment scores to compare results across all instructional modalities.

Class Assessment:

Class Assessment:

Percentages Letter Grade
90 – 100 A
80 - 89 B
70 – 79 C
60 – 69 D
< 60 F

Grading:

Grading:
Assignment Quantity Points Each Weight
Lab Every Meeting 100 40%
Project 1 Group Project 100 40%
Quizzes             5 20 20%
 

 

Late Submission of Course Materials:

Homework assignments are due at the end of class on the due date.   Quizzes and lab assignments are given to enhance the student's learning experience, and are normally required to be done in class. 
 
Unless arrangements are made in advance (such as deployment or other duty commitments), the following deductions will be made in the event work is turned in late: 
 
1 week late: 10%  
2 weeks late: 20% 
3 weeks late: 30%

Assignments will not normally be accepted more than 3 weeks late. If there are any extenuating circumstances, please email me. You can submit assignments early.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

You will responsible for following the rules provided by the Education Office and to keep the classroom clean.  The computers are the property of Park University, so do not install software on them.  During class sessions, you are expected to participate in the classroom discussion and complete in class labs and assignments. Do not engage in activities not class related, such as:

  • Play games

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

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.
