Educational Philosophy: Students will be exposed to lectures, readings, discussion threads and assignments that will explore the basic methodology for the analysis and design of computer systems.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
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 project which counts for 20% of the grade. The course project will be an information system plan for a system chosen by the student. Emphasis will be on developing the basic components of a system using system analysis tools and methodology. The system may be stand alone or integrated with other systems in the organization. Each week portions of the project will be developed including a system description, needs analysis, feasibility analysis, data analysis, process analysis, and financial analysis. Computer aided software engineering (CASE) tools will be used where needed in support of the weekly assignments. The final project document is due at the end of the course with all assignments integrated into one document.

If a student wishes to withdraw from this course, s/he must file the appropriate paperwork with the registrar before the appropriate deadlines. Every student is considered enrolled unless s/he is officially withdrawn.
