Blended Course Guidelines (Link to guidelines page) – A blended course must meet a minimum percentage of time in the classroom, as specified by University and department guidelines.

Educational Philosophy:
My educational philosophy is based on real world application. The learning environment will be transformed into an environment focused on the skill sets of a System Analyst and the study the System Development Life Cycle and Methodology We will learn through guided discussions, scenarios, readings, examinations, web sites, and writings. The students will be thoroughly engaged in the learning process through critical thinking exercises and role playing.

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.


  Instructor Learning Outcomes
  1. Continue understanding the concepts and responsibilities of a System Analyst
  2. Hands on in analyzing the System Developement Life Cycle
  3. Develop database in relation to Systems Plan
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.

Link to Class Rubric

Class Assessment:

Instructor Learning Objectives will be evaluated by completing discussion questions in class and online.
 
The student will be assessed on the outcomes of the Midterm, Final examinations, individual presentations, written paper and weekly articles (current topics pertaining to weekly reading assignments).
 
The Midterm and Final examinations (both will be closed book) will be composed of either true/false, multiple choice or essay type questions. These examinations will test the student's knowledge of the material presented from the instructor.   The student will be graded utilizing a summative evaluation.
 
The individually written paper will be a topic selected by the instructor, requirements provided by instructor, personal research, written in current APA format. The student will be evaluated on proper formatting, clarity and depth of knowledge. The student must provide a paper that is clearly identified as undergraduate work.
 
The weekly articles will evaluate the student's applied knowledge of the chapter material. The student must review the articles prior to class and be ready to present the information in class.  Weekly articles that are due during online learning will be placed in the drop box.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Late work will not receive full grade credit. Work not turned by the due date, but which is turned in no more then 7 days late, will receive 1/2 the score it would have received otherwise. Homework not received within 7 days of the due date will not be scored. No work received after the last Saturday of the term will be scored.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Any classroom conduct that disrupts the learning environment in the opinion of the instructor, will not be tolerated.  
Also remember that computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive.  Students must recognize though that technology can also cause problems.  Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash.  Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology.  Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes. 

In addition the Class Room computers are to be used only upon the instructor’s discretion; this will help minimize any disruptions within the classroom.

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 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalog Page 97

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 2012-2013 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.
