Programs

Programs

  • The Department of Computer Science offers two majors: Computer Information Systems (CIS) and Computer Science (CSC)

  • The Computer Information Systems (CIS) major and the Advanced Computing (AC) Track of the Computer Science (CSC) major are accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

  • Will discuss only CIS assessment today


Cis student learning outcomes

CIS Student Learning Outcomes

  • An ability to apply fundamental principles of computing, mathematics, and organizational theory as appropriate to the discipline of information systems.

  • An ability to analyze a problem and model it as an information system using appropriate methodologies, and to identify the computing requirements necessary to meet the desired needs.

  • An ability to design, implement, and evaluate an information system, and to compare alternative solutions.

  • An ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools appropriate for immediate employment in computing technology application fields.

  • An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal.

  • An ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, using accepted standards of the profession.

  • An ability to analyze the social and human context of computing as it impacts individuals, organizations, and society, including ethical, legal, security, and global policy issues.

  • An ability to work and learn independently and an appreciation of the importance of continuing education and professional growth over the course of a lifetime.


Assessment methodology

Assessment Methodology

  • Methodology: Each outcome is defined in terms of 4-6 measurable performance indicators

  • Work assessed: For each performance indicator, there is an associated curriculum mapindicating where in the curriculum the required skills, knowledge, and attitudes are acquired and where they are measured

  • Strategy: For each performance indicator, there is an associated rubric that allows a student performance relative to that indicator to be categorized in one of four levels: Beginning, Developing, Competent, or Accomplished

  • Sampling: None. All eligible studentsin the assessed courses are rated

  • Target: An outcome is considered achieved if the percentage of students rated Competent or Accomplished is 70% or higher

Evaluation of the Outcome

F. An ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing,

using accepted standards of the profession.

  • Percentage of students rated competent or accomplished: 51/60 = 85.00%

  • Status of the outcome: Achieved. (The percentage of students rated competent or accomplished is above 70%)

  • Recommendation(s): Continue to distribute grading worksheets for evaluation of writing and presentations. Continue to discuss them at some length to help students understand our expectations. Students should also be encouraged to seek help from the Student Learning Center.

  • Time frame for implementation: 2013-14

  • Percentage of students rated competent or accomplished: 49/52 = 94.23%

  • Status of the outcome: Achieved. (The percentage of students rated competent or accomplished is above 70%)

  • Recommendation(s): None.

  • Time frame for implementation: 2013-14

H. An ability to work and learn independently and an appreciation of the importance of continuing education and professional growth over the course of a lifetime.

  • Percentage of students rated competent or accomplished: 103/207 = 49.76%

  • Status of the outcome: Not Achieved. (The percentage of students rated competent or accomplished is below 70%)

  • Recommendation(s): The performance under indicators H2, H4, and H5 are slowly trending upwards. Continue to:

    • Promote Computer Science Club and Scholars Day activities vigorously and encourage student attendance.

    • Schedule a 1-credit “Problem Solving” topics course to encourage participation in student programming contests.

    • Work with Career Services to sponsor and support a Career Link event every semester.

  • Time frame for implementation: 2013-14

  • Outcome F: Continue to distribute grading worksheets for evaluation of presentations and writing. Continue to discuss them at some length to help students understand our expectations. Students should also be encouraged to seek help from the Student Learning Center.

  • Outcome G: None.

  • Outcome H: Continue to:

    • Promote Computer Science Club and Scholars Day activities vigorously and encourage student attendance.

    • Schedule a 1-credit “Problem Solving” topics course to encourage participation in student programming contests.

    • Work with Career Services to sponsor and support a Career Link event every semester.


What resources are needed to close the loop

What resources are needed to close the loop

  • Need financial and personnel support to organize Career Link events (panel discussions involving local employers and alumni discussing career options in computing) every semester.

  • Need financial and personnel support to conduct alumni and employer surveys.

  • Career Services Office needs to be staffed better so they can organize Internship and Job Fairs every semester, offer resume critiquing, mock interviewing, and other services.
