The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, special projects and writings. The facilitator will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions. The objective of this course is to help students begin the "creativity and problem-solving skills" necessary to become a proficient programmer regardless of the programming language.
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 CS151 example exam found in the password-protected my.park 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 151 concepts.
Problem solving (technical skills, critical thinking, and communication):
relevant learning outcomes – 2, 4, 5, 7, 8
Recommended guideline for evaluating the core assessment final exam:
Does not meet expectations
65% to 84%
no exam graded
50% to 74%
Laboratory participation, one mid term examination, one final exam, 6 quizzes, home work programming assignments, special projects and class room participapion.
Mid Term Exam 20%, Final Exam,30%. Homework/quizzes 25%, Laboratory Work 20%, and Class Participation 05%.
100 - 90 = A(4.0 honor points) 89 - 80 = B(3.0 honor points) 79 - 70 = C(2.0 honor points) 69 -60 = D(1.0 honor point) Below 60 = F(no honor points)
Your overall score is determined as follows:
(your_total_hw-quizz_pts/max_hw-quizz_pts)*25 + (your_total_labwork_pts/max_lab_pts)*20 +
(your_total_mid-term exam_pts/max_mid-term exam_pts)*20 +
(your_total_final exam_pts/max_final exam_pts)*30
Late Submission of Course Materials: Homework must be turned in at the beginning of class on the day it is due. The due date will be annotated at the bottom of each assignment. Late homework will be accepted up to the start of the next class meeting but will incur a 7 point (out of 100) reduction in score each day it is late. Late homework will not be accepted after the start of the next class meeting and will receive an automatic zero for a grade.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
STUDENTS MUST READ ALL CHAPTERS PRIOR TO EACH SCHEDULED CLASS MEETING. Students are expected to be well-prepared to discuss examples and assignments provided at the end of each chapter or handed out by the instructor. Discussion of these examples and assignments will be part of the basis of the class participation grade. Students will also complete three programming assignments outside of class.
Homework(study questions Laboratory Assignments
Int to Computers & Programming
Algorithms and Design
Turn in all lab assignments and special projects
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 95-96Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.
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 95Students who are uncertain about such documentation of source should consult their instructor. If you engage in such activity you are putting your entire academic at risk.
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.
