Each exam will provide 15% of the student grade, for a total of 60% of the final grade. 20% of the student grade will be determined by their participation and effective development of the online discussion topics; and the final 20% will be determined by the assigned project, which will be available around the middle of the course. To supplement the student’s grade point average, discussion topics will be provided prior to each course session. The student can earn up to 5 additional points per session (up to 60 total points) by prior research and subsequent classroom discussion of the topics provided. Students are encouraged to research new and relevant IT and IS technologies and submit them for discussion topics. The student will be provided an additional 5 points by reading, and electronically signing the Course Outline stating you have read and agree to the terms of the course. An authorization signature line is available at the end of the outline. Grade Evaluation: A 92% - 100% B 91% - 81% C 80% - 70% D 69% - 60% F 59% or below
Page 3 of 6 Evaluation criteria explained: Students are expected to be active participants in each class session. Credit for participation will be extended to students who regularly ask questions, share observations, and contribute relevant personal experiences. The assignments will consist of a number of individual in-class and study tasks. Students will be given specific guidance on the amount of collaboration permitted for each assignment. Unless otherwise specified, all assignments are individual assignments, and thus must be completely the original work of the student submitting them and include proper citations to the published work of others. As the field of Information Technology and Information Security is an ever changing dynamic endeavor, the instructor reserves the right to change or alter the class structured outline during the tenure of the class to properly address emerging or changing technologies or events within the IT and IS field. Current events which impact IT and IS technologies will be analyzed as they occur. Other Policies and Procedures: Class attendance will be required to be current with daily discussion. Daily attendance will be taken by the instructor. Should a student miss two (2) or more classes without notification of the instructor, the instructor can lower the student’s letter grade by one level.
