Course Description:
CS 322 Web Programming II: This course continues the development of the Web programming skills introduced in CS321. While CS321 emphasizes client-side Web programming,CS322 emphasizes server-side Web programming. Server-side concepts will be put into practice by using ASP.NET. Students will be expected to implement an applications that utilizes ASP.NET AJAX. Optionally, students will learn about Web services and/or ASP.NET MVC. Due to the particularly dynamic nature of the Web environment, course content will change as appropriate. Prerequisite: CS321 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
The instructor’s educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. The instructor will engage each learner in what is referred to as Socratic learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Evaluate and analyze basic server-side web programming concepts – scripting, web forms, post back, sessions, cookies, view state, code-behind, database connectivity, AJAX
  2. Construct web programming solutions from given problem descriptions.
  3. Analyze web programs in order to test, debug, and improve them.
  4. Appraise web programs to ensure that they use proper coding conventions. . *Formulate web programs that use: *concepts covered in CS 321 - XHTML, cascading style sheets, Dynamic HTML, Javascript, forms *C# *ASP.NET *web controls *database connectivity *ASP.NET AJAX *web services (probable) *ASP.NET MVC (possible)


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. School policy also dictates that the core assessment tool must cover at least 75% of a course's learning outcomes.

For this course, the core assessment tool is a final exam. Teachers must create their own final exam. In creating the final exam, teachers must follow the guidelines found in the CS322 Core Assessment Materials section of the password-protected ICS PirateNet faculty area, https://piratenet.park.edu/ics/Offices/ICS/Faculty.jnz.

In the final exam, there should be two broad categories of questions that we evaluate separately – concepts and problem solving:

Concepts (terminology and concepts that should be memorized): relevant learning outcomes – 1

Multiple-choice and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 322 concepts.

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

Problem solving (technical skills, critical thinking, and communication):

relevant learning outcomes – 2, 3, 4, 5

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

Recommended guideline for evaluating the core assessment final exam:

Exceeds expectations

Meets expectations

Does not meet expectations

No evidence

Concepts

≥ 85%

65% to 84%

< 65%

no exam graded

Problem solving

≥ 75%

50% to 74%

< 50%

no exam graded

Grading:
 

Student Grades will be accumulated on a point basis where four hundred points is the maximum allowed. Points shall be awarded as follows:

            100 Points = Mid Term Examination              100 Points = Projects / Quizes

100 Points = Final Examination                                  100 Points = Final Project

                                    Total Points = 400 points

            The letter grade awarded shall correspond to the points accumulated in the following manner:

           

            360 to 400 Points (90% - 100%) = ‘A’

            320 to 359 Points (80% -   89%) = ‘B’

            280 to 319 Points (70% -   79%) = ‘C’

            240 to 279 Points (60% -   69%) = ‘D’

            Below 240 Points (<60%)           = ‘F’

            Students are advised that “Incomplete” will be given only in the severest of circumstances. It is the responsibility of the student to withdraw from the class prior to the closing date for “Withdrawal” grades.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
The instructor does not accept late homework.

Course Topic/Dates/Assignments:
Classroom assignments will be issued the first class period

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 students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92

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. from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92-93

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 "F".
  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.
