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 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:
(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: 18-19
See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.
Communication: (relevant learning outcome – 5)
Short answer questions that ask the student to explain various concepts and trace and debug code fragments and/or programs.
Exam questions: 15-19
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: 1-14
(relevant learning outcomes – 4, 6)
Exam questions: 15-17
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 graded.
The ICS Program Coordinator will use the core assessment scores to compare results across all instructional modalities.
