Systems Development Project
A Sacramento-area client has hired your project team to develop a web based Information System which will automate one or more business functions. You will conduct all activities and prepare all deliverable products associated with the development process. At the conclusion of your study, you will prepare a comprehensive, high-quality project report containing your results. You will also design and program a working prototype model of your system using the programming language of your choice.
Course Grading: I will give two in-class examinations. Exams consist of 4 essay questions each worth 25 points. I will provide you with paper for the essay answers. Examination material will be drawn from the textbook reading, any other assigned readings, and class lectures and discussion. Emphasis will be placed on the conceptual understanding of the material and NOT on memory alone. Understanding the application of the concepts will greatly enhance your grade.
No make-up examination will be given without the prior approval of the instructor. If you fail to take the exam, without valid documentation, I will prepare a different exam which you will take at 75% of its grade value.
Final grades will be assigned according to the total points you have obtained through exams and homework assignments relative to the total possible number of points.
Your grade is also affected by the number of unexcused absences. You are allowed to have 5 unexcused absences. For each absence after your allowance, 25 points will be deducted. Note that absences are only excused for a valid reasons (health problems, jury duty etc.) and MUST be accompanied with documentation (i.e., health center note).
Pluses and minuses will be awarded along the extremities (i.e., greater than 3% below the upper limit and less than 3% of the lower limit, respectively).
Based on the total points, your grades will be assigned as follows:
Any queries or appeals for a graded component (such as an assignment or an exam) must be directed to the instructor in person within 2 weeks after the graded component is returned. No adjustment will be made for the scores of graded components after the two-week period. Students are responsible for keeping track of their graded components. Uncollected graded components will be kept in the instructorís office until the end of the current semester.
Grading system may change for compelling reasons.

o Copying, in part or in whole, from anotherís test or other evaluation instrument.
o Using crib notes, "cheat sheets," or any other device, including electronic devices not permitted by the instructor as an aid in writing an examination.
o Submitting work previously graded in another course unless doing so has been approved by the course instructor or by department policy.
o Submitting work simultaneously presented in more than one course, unless doing so has been approved by the respective course instructors or by the department policies of the respective departments.
o Altering or interfering with grading or grading instructions.
o Sitting for an examination by a surrogate, or as a surrogate.
o Any other act committed by a student in the course of his or her academic work that defrauds or misrepresents, including aiding or abetting in any of the actions defined above.
Plagiarism. Plagiarism, as a form of cheating, is the use of distinctive ideas or works belonging to another person without providing adequate acknowledgement of that personís contribution. Regardless of the means of appropriation, incorporation of anotherís work into oneís own requires adequate identification and acknowledgement. Plagiarism is doubly unethical because it deprives the author of rightful credit and gives credit to someone who has not earned it. Acknowledgement is not necessary when the material used is common knowledge. Plagiarism at Sacramento State includes but is not limited to:
o The act of incorporating into oneís own work the ideas, words, sentences, paragraphs, or parts thereof, or the specific substance of anotherís work without giving appropriate credit thereby representing the product as entirely one's own. Examples include not only word-for-word copying, but also the "mosaic" (i.e., interspersing a few of oneís own words while, in essence, copying anotherís work), the paraphrase (i.e., rewriting anotherís work while still using the otherís fundamental idea or theory); fabrication (i.e., inventing or counterfeiting sources), ghost-writing (i.e., submitting anotherís work as oneís own) and failure to include quotation marks on material that is otherwise acknowledged; and
o Representing as oneís own anotherís artistic or scholarly works such as musical compositions, computer programs, photographs, paintings, drawing, sculptures, or similar works.

Late and Make-up Policy: The general policy for this course is to require completion of assignments as specified in the class schedule. All assignments are due at the beginning of the class period. If the assignment is submitted after the beginning of the class, there will be a 5% deduction. If the assignment is submitted on the same day, but after class, there will be a 10% penalty. If the assignment is submitted within a week, there will be a 20% penalty. No late assignments will be accepter after 1 week. All assignments should be printed and stapled together with the cover letter statement (click for sample) on the top. If you have an emergency or other extenuating circumstances that will affect your ability to turn in an assignment or complete an exam, please contact me as soon as possible to discuss.
Incomplete: An incomplete grade (I) will only be issued in accordance to College of Business Administration policy. Among the conditions imposed by the instructor that must be met are: (1) a current passing grade (70 percent or better), (2) the successful completion of all prior assignments and exams, and (3) an unforeseen and unusual event beyond your control which prevents you from completing the semester, and can be documented and verified (employment-related events do not qualify). (4) An incomplete will only be considered after it has been determined that a withdrawal (W) cannot be issued. If you do not meet (1) through (4), you do not qualify for an incomplete. As stipulated by the University, an incomplete cannot be assigned when it is necessary for the student to attend additional class meetings to complete the course requirements.
Unauthorized Withdrawal (WU) indicates that a student did not officially withdraw from the course but failed to complete it. Among the conditions imposed by the instructor that must be met are: (1) a passing grade (70 percent or better) at the time that the student stopped attending classes, (2) attendance stopped before the 11th week of the semester. If you do not meet (1) and (2), you do not qualify for an unauthorized withdrawal (WU) grade and as a result you will be assigned a failing (F) grade.
Laptop and cell phone regulation: No photographing, recording or text messaging is allowed without permission of the instructor.
A disruptive student is a student who engages in classroom behavior that interferes with the process of teaching and learning. If a student is disruptive to my class, I will follow the Procedures for dealing with incidents of disruptive behavior described in the DEALING WITH INCIDENTS OF DISRUPTIVE STUDENT BEHAVIOR IN THE CLASSROOM document http://www.csus.edu/umanual/student/STU-0112.htm.
