It covers the concepts, techniques, and tools necessary to develop a working software application. There are introductory discussions on relational database management system (DBMS) and system analysis and design. Major portion of the course material will also introduce the strategies related to information systems. The course involves exams, and group projects. You will demonstrate your mastery of the material by applying what you learn. Some projectrelated assignments will be well specified; others may be purposely less specific or less structured because an objective of these assignments is for you to not only solve the problem posed, but also to learn how to be creative in using information systems. Class sessions will vary in terms of pedagogy/methodology. We will use a variety of lectures, demonstrations, and other classroom experiences. You are a critical element in class sessions, which will usually be interactive, and you are encouraged to ask questions to clarify and expand the covered material. Each class will have important information. It is your responsibility to get this information if you are unable to attend a class. Class materials and discussions will often supplement the textbook and other readings. The exams will cover all these materials. The instructor assumes that you have read the appropriate reading assignment(s) prior to each class. Reading assignments, if any, as well as class lectures, will be posted on the course website. You should note that this course covers some technical material. Typically, you may not understand the material without reading – and rereading – it carefully. Course Objectives The overall course objective is to provide you with the concepts and skills you need to analyze information systems. The course covers most of the databaseoriented activities, the systems development processes and strategies to extract value from information systems. Upon successful completion of the course, you should be able to do the following: 2 Understand and interpret some of the key terminologies in the information technology field. Analyze the business needs and recommend technologybased solutions. Be familiar with basic conceptual data design and system development processes. Understand information systems strategies pursued by different companies. How technology can be put to effective use. Grade Composition You will be evaluated based on the following grading scheme (see course schedule for the dates): 2 Exams (27.5% each) 55% o Midterm Exam o Final Exam Projects (Team Activities) 30% Website Building (10%) – See schedule for date Database (10%) – See schedule for date Emerging Technology MiniPresentation (10%) – See schedule for date Note: A peer evaluation component will be used to add or deduct points as needed and based upon teammates’ evaluation of your work. Additions or deductions on the overall project grade (i.e., the 30% number) will be assigned for exceptional or substandard contributions (respectively), as reported by teammates. Please see Other Important Information Team Management (below) for more information about the peer evaluation. Class Participation 10% Presentation Participation (questions and comments to presenters during pr5%entations) Note: Team presentations will be held during the last two regular class periods of the semester. To receive full presentation participation, students are required to be present and on time for ALL days of team presentations. Students with a Cumulative Exam Average ≥ 70% Cumulative Final Course Grade Overall Course Average Exam Average A+ ≥ 97% ≥ 70% A ≥ 92% A ≥ 90% B+ ≥ 87% B ≥ 82% B ≥ 80% C+ ≥ 77% C ≥ 72% 3 C ≥ 70% D+ ≥ 67% D ≥ 62% D ≥ 60% F < 60% Students with a Cumulative Exam Average < 70% Cumulative Overall Course Final Course Exam Average Average Grade ≥ 70% C or grade associated with overall course average, whichever is lower ≥ 60% and < 70% ≥ 60% and < 70% Grade associated with overall course average < 60% F ≥ 60% D or grade associated with overall ≥ 50% and < 60% course average, whichever is lower < 60% F < 50% N/A F Your letter grade for the course will be determined on the basis of the overall weighted score computed using the percentage breakdown outlined above. The final grade will also depend on the weighted average of the exams as shown in the table above. A. Exams Two exams will be administered during the semester. If an exam will be missed because of a Universityexcused absence, you must notify the instructor BEFORE the final. When a final exam is missed due to a Universityexcused absence (and prior notice is provided), the final will be rescheduled by the instructor based on his discretion. The format of the makeup exam may vary from the formats of regularly scheduled exams. The instructor has the sole right to make determinations concerning the potential for makeup exams Exams will be closed books and closed notes. The use of handheld/laptop/desktop computing devices (including cell phones and communication devices) is prohibited, except in special circumstances previously approved by the instructor. B. Projects 4 You will be assigned to a team to work on the project. The project will have three parts. The objective of the first two parts will be to give you handson experience. In the last part, you will analyze the strategy undertaken by a given company. Each part of the project must be submitted at the beginning of the class in which it is due. A late penalty of 20% per 24hour period will be imposed for projects turned in after the submission time. Saturday and Sunday count as one 24 hour period. Toward the end of the Maymester, you will grade on a 10 point scale your team members’ contributions to all the projects. We will scale your team project scores by your peer evaluation scores to determine your individual project scores. For example, if your average score from your peers is 9, your project score toward the final grade will be computed by multiplying your team’s score by 0.9. C. Class Contributions This involves attendance and class participation. The instructor may call on individual students during the class, and their inability to respond with a reasonable answer will adversely affect their class participation grade. On occasions, class individual assignments will be counted toward the class participation score also. When such individual assignments are due, the instructor will notify the students at least one class prior to the due date. For each class, students will be graded on a 02 scale: 0 for absence, 1 for presence without constructive participation, and 2 for constructive participation. The ratio of your total daily participation scores to the maximum possible score will be curved to determine your class contribution. If you are absent for 5 class periods, you will automatically fail the course. Other Information A. Group Selection and Management Each group will consist of up to five students. Students will be assigned to teams by the instructor. Once a group is formed, it must self organize. Peer evaluation forms will be given out towards the end of the course to assess the performance and contributions of members to the team performance. B. General Course Policies and Expectations Any student in this course who has a disability that may prevent him or her from fully demonstrating his or her abilities should contact the instructor personally, as soon as possible, so accommodations necessary to ensure full participation and facilitate your educational opportunities can be discussed. Students who are having problems with test taking (or any activities) in this class are highly encouraged to contact their instructor for help as soon as they recognize that there is a problem to obtain the necessary guidance. Any type of collaboration among students in quizzes and exams is strictly prohibited, and will be dealt with harshly at the discretion of the instructor. More information concerning the Purdue Code of Conduct (including academic conduct) may be found here: 5 http://www.purdue.edu/univregs/pages/stu_conduct/code_of_honor.html . This website is meant to be a guide and not an allinclusive list of academic misconduct activities. The spirit of the law, in addition to the letter of the law, will always be used. On the other hand, students are strongly encouraged to collaborate with their group members while working on the project. In fact, the capability to work in groups and learn from one another is an important objective of the project. As mentioned before, students are expected to take every exam and quiz at the scheduled time and location. In a case where serious emergency prevents a student from doing so, the instructor must be notified immediately. All emergencies and absences must be documented by the appropriate authority (e.g., the healthcare provider concerned in the case of a medical emergency). All students in the course are expected to have (and frequently check) an email account. Students are responsible for updating Blackboard to reflect their current email address and phone contact information prior to the third class period. No deadline extension or extra credit will be granted for any aspect of the course. Quizzes, exams, and project submissions will be considered for regrading only if turned in to the instructor, along with a written explanation, within five business days of their being returned by the instructor. The instructor reserves the right, in such cases, to regrade the entire quiz, exam, or project submission. Students are expected to respect the rights of their classmates by exhibiting courteous and professional behavior that is conducive (or not disruptive) to the learning environment of the classroom. Cell phones should be turned off or put on silent ring or vibrate. Phone calls should not be made or taken during the class period (this includes text messaging or instant messaging). If there is an emergency situation that prevents you from adhering to this policy, please see your instructor to discuss it as soon as possible. In the event of a major campus emergency, course requirements, deadlines and grading percentages are subject to changes that may be necessitated by a revised semester calendar or other circumstances. Here are ways to get information about changes in this course. Blackboard: http://mycourses.purdue.edu/, email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org and office phone number: 4961488. 6
