Course Description:
IS315 Computer Systems Analysis & Design I: This course presents various philosophies, terminology, and techniques used in the analysis and implementation of the system development life cycle. The student will investigate such areas as project proposals, logical systems, flow diagrams, data modeling, dictionaries, and documentation. The student will learn how to use a CASE tool. 3:0:3 Prerequisite: IS205.

Educational Philosophy:

The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactive learning. Text, videos, lecture, readings, writings, Internet, web sites, quizzes, examinations, and classroom dialogues and debates will be employed. The instructor will engage each student and solicit ideas and feedback. It is important to note that proactive student participation significantly enhances the classroom experience.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Distinguish logical versus physical models and translate logical process and data models into physical design models using design/ CASE software.
  2. Evaluate and make architectural design decisions given a problem scenario: Client Server, Centralized versus Decentralized, Database and distribution of data, User and system interface alternatives (inputs/outputs)
  3. Explain design principles for Input/Output with regard to human interaction and user acceptability.
  4. Explain advantages and disadvantages of data storage options (i.e. Relational Database, Object Database, Conventional Files and Data Warehouse)
  5. Practice key concepts of analysis and design as well as advance techniques such as JAD, Prototyping, USE CASES and/or other OOA/OOD techniques.
  6. Evaluate strengths/weaknesses and applicable roles of several strategies/methodologies for design of information systems including Model Driven, RAD, Agile, OO development, and Prototyping.
  7. Apply Quality Assurance steps that can be taken in all phases of development to ensure a quality product and user acceptance.
  8. Communicate both orally and in writing as an individual and as a member of a team.


Core Assessment:

All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes.  The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a final exam which counts for 20% of the grade. Questions on the final exam will be developed to test at least eight of the ten course core objectives.

Class Assessment:

Assessment will be determined via examinations, quizzes, presentations, papers, and projects.

Grading:

 

Class participation - 15%

Project - 30%
 
Presentation - 15% 

Mid-term - 20%

Final exams - 20%

PROJECT: Complete an abbreviated analysis and design project.
- The analysis and design must include Scope Definition, Problem Analysis, Functional Requirements, and Logical Design.
- Context diagrams and use cases required (including use case narrative).
- Data Flow Diagrams, Entity Relation Diagrams, and UML Digrams required.
- Gantt and Pert charts that captures entire project (including critical path and resourcing) are required.

Late Submission of Course Materials:

The instructor will not accept assignments late. Assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of "zero".

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

- Faculty members are expected to dismiss from their classrooms students whose behavior is detrimental to good order in the classroom.

- As a common practice in college level academic education, the greatest range of acceptance will be given to all view points; each student will have intellectual advancement as their primary goal, respect will be given to all other students, the class as a group and the school environment.

- Cell phones must be turned off or in vibrate mode. If you receive a call, leave the classroom and go to the school lobby. Do not stand in the hallway as that disrupts other classes.

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 95-96

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 95

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.

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.
