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. School policy dictates that the core assessment tool must cover at least 75% of a course's learning outcomes. To ensure compliance, all CS 314 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 covered in the final exam:
(relevant learning outcomes – 4, 5, 6, 10)
Given a problem description, produce a design ( a sketch) of the interface with meaningful object names.
Exam questions: Part 2: Project 2
See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.
Given a problem description, create a solution in the form of a Visual Basic.Net program that uses the proper concepts and methods studied in Chapters 1 – 7 of Beginning VB and Chapters 3, 4, 5, of Advanced VB.
Exam questions: Part 2: 1and 2
(relevant learning outcomes – 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9)
Short-answer questions that ask the student about User Interface Design concepts.
Exam questions: Part 1: 1-10
Given a problem description, choose the correct interface tools, methods and functions to produce a solution. Debug the code to get a working program.
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:
Does not meet expectations
65% to 84%
No exam submitted.
The ICS Program Coordinator will use the core assessment scores to compare results across all instructional modalities.
Programming projects will be used to assess proficiency of programming language, tools and techniques of quality design. (Weekly)
Discussion will involve both user interface design and programming projects. Participation in discussion will be centered around elements of quality design as well as the processes for ensuring quality design. (Weekly).
Group Project will be used to assess proficiency in identifying user needs, carry them to design, and implementation. It will also be used to identify student’s ability to work in a collaborative team environment. (Weekly)
Quizzes, Midterm and Final examinations will be used to assess student’s knowledge of key terminology and concepts and proficiency in programming skills.
Grading weights are as follows: Letter grades are assigned (based on your overall score) as follows:
Programming projects 20% 90 – 100 % A
Group project 25% 80 – 89 % B
Discussions 15% 70 – 79 % C
Quizzes 10% 60 - 69 % D
Midterm 10% less than 60 % F
Your Overall Score is determined as follows:
OS = (Projects %) * .20 + (Group project%) * .25+ (Discussions %) * .15 + (Quizzes %) * .10 + (Midterm %) * .10 + (Final%) * .20
Late Submission of Course Materials: Programming Projects, Group Projects and Discussions must be completed no later than Midnight (MST) on day it is due. If you must complete it later than that, then that project's score will be reduced by 10% for each day late.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Group Project: This class requires a group project. You will be assigned to a group based on your responses on the Information Form and asked to work with that group throughout the term Twenty-five percent of your grade depends on your individual contribution to the group effort.
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.
