Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is based on the concept of applied learning. It is believed that to fully benefit from an education, students must aggressively read and study course material on a routine basis, continually applying and building upon their newfound knowledge. Students are to be well prepared to discuss the text examples and assignments provided in each chapter. Discussion of these examples and assignments will be part of the basis of the class participation grade. Students should expect to invest at a minimum of ten hours of focused time outside of class time studying, practicing, and preparing the Java programming assignments.
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. 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 and pattern it after the CS219 example exam found in the password-protected my.park ICS faculty area, https://my.park.edu/ICS/Offices/Information_and_Computer_Science/. To avoid collaboration between students in different sections, teachers should not use the example exam's questions verbatim. But teachers are required to cover its same content, and they are strongly encouraged to follow its format closely.
In the final exam, there are 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, 6
Multiple-choice and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 219 concepts.
Problem solving (technical skills, critical thinking, and communication):
relevant learning outcomes – 2, 4, 5, 7
Recommended guideline for evaluating the core assessment final exam:
Does not meet expectations
65% to 84%
no exam graded
50% to 74%
Please let me know if you will be absent as this will affect your participation points.
If you don't show for class, and I don't hear from you until after the absence, no participation points will be awarded.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Homework must be turned in at the beginning of class on the day it is due. The due date of homework will be annotated at the bottom of each assignment. Late homework will not be accepted and will receive an automatic zero for a grade. The instructor may modify the due dates and it is the students responsibility to adjust the assignment turn-in accordingly.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
