  • 5. 5Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU Outcome 1 Ability to Analyze a Problem Performance Criteria 5 3 1 a Able to identify all valid inputs and outputs to a problem All valid inputs & outputs identified Some missing or misinterpreted inputs/outputs Most inputs/outputs incorrect or missing b Able to identify all constraints to a problem All constraints identified Some constraints missing or incorrect No constraints identified c Able to determine the processes needed to convert inputs to outputs Complete process determined Some portions of process missing or determined incorrectly Unable to determine any of the processes needed d Able to produce clearly written specifications related to the problem Clear documentation provided Documentation is incomplete or some portions are inaccurate Little to no accurate documentation provided Notes for using this rubric: Scoring: For each performance criteria, assign a value between 1 and 5 according to the rubric above. Values such as 3. 8 are acceptable. Unanswered Questions: When a student does not even attempt to answer the question, a zero(0) should be given for all criteria. For programming courses: Department recommends not using a programming question to evaluate student work. If it is used, evaluation should focuson approach (pseudo code) not on actual implementation. Constraints: relates to constraints on data (data types, ranges), design (memory restriction, gate types), process (??),etc.
  • 6. 6Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU Appendix B: Alumni Survey June 2, 2009 Dear Computer Science Graduate: We need your feedback!! As part of our continuing effort to evaluate the effectiveness of our programs, we regularly ask for input from our Computer Science students and our graduates. This process allows us to examine student responses and make changes to our programs as needed. As fairly recent graduates of our program, your participation in this effort is critical!! Please take just 10 minutes of your time to complete the SCSU Computer Science Alumni Survey available at the following link: http://snaponline.snapsurveys.com/surveylogin.asp?k=124386541883 If you received an email with this same request and have already completed the survey, thank you very much. If you haven’t yet completed the survey, please visit the link above. The survey will be available until July 1st, 2009. Thank you for your time and commitment and, as always, please call, email or stop by campus and let us know how you are doing!! Sincerely,

The Process CS faculty identified a variety of computer science courses contributing to LO1. These courses vary in nature from introductory programming to hardware oriented courses. In developing an assessment measure for LO1, the department strived for a rubric which could be applied to a wide range of computer science courses of different focus within the program. After much deliberation, a rubric was developed with the following performance criteria: 1. Able to identify all valid inputs and outputs to a problem 2. Able to identify all constraints to a problem 3. Able to determine the processes needed to convert inputs to outputs 4. Able to produce clearly written specifications related to the problem As a pilot study, this rubric was applied to two required courses of very different nature in the program: CSC152 Computer Programming I and CSC207 Digital Systems. The process included faculty group review of final exam student answers and blind review of specific exam questions. For details on the developed rubric, its performance criteria and scoring scale, please refer to Appendix C. Lessons Learned Despite the tremendous amount of time spent in developing a rubric for measuring the ability to analyze a computer based solution, the assessment process showed that typical examination questions do not adequately separate analyses from implementation. In reviewing a student’s response to an exam question (which is naturally an end result of BOTH analyses and implementation), it is therefore rather difficult to conclude whether a missed answer was due to a lack of analytical skill or implementation skill. Action Plan In order to separate the assessment of analytical ability from implementation skills, CS faculty will need to reconstruct exam questions to draw out students’ conceptual response to be evaluated independently from students’
  • 54. 54Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU ability to implement the solution. One example of such approach in an introductory programming course such as CSC152 is to include questions which ask students to identify inputs and outputs, constraints to a problem, and describe the processes needed in the form of pseudo-code instead of a formal programming language. LO1 from a programmatic perspective: Feedback from Alumni When our alumni were asked to assess their level of knowledge and confidence in the ability to analyze a computer based solution prior to the program and after completion of the program, the response clearly indicated that within the program there is a net gain in this learning outcome, which partially but positively contribute to our program objective 1 and ABET criteria (a), (b), (c), (j) and (k). 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 StudentResponseCount Level of Knowledge and Confidence Ability to analyze a computer based solution Pre-program Post-program

The application of census-related geoautomata to models which can forecast the spread and behavior of disease epidemics. In this research the concept of cellular automata is applied to real-world census entities (blocks and tracts) with well-established models (the SIR model) describing the interaction between those entities and the behavior recorded. Such modeling will be especially applicable when the 2010 U.S.Census becomes available and can be used in cities/urban areas across the country. 2. The application of statistical techniques and/or programming to large national clinical trials as conducted by the Veterans Administration in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health. These are large highly-controlled multi-year multi- site studies looking at such conditions as alcoholism, shingles, renal dialysis, herpes zoster.

Current major academic research interest is in the application of cellular automata to census-based models with particular emphasis on the spread of disease in urban areas, but research areas here can be applied to many areas. My expectation is that the arrival of the impending 2010 U.S. Census will provide some new and very interesting applications to this area of research. Current major practical research interest is in the application of advanced computer techniques, in both the areas of biostatistics and data management, to the conduct of large-scale multi-year multi-site clinical trials as undertaken by the Cooperative Studies Program of the Veterans Administration. In either of these cases, my attempt is to bring those research concepts back to the classroom, either by strengthening courses such as CSC200 (Information Management and Productivity Software – we use MS Office 2007) with special projects or by enhancing courses such as CSC370 (Computer Implementation of Statistical Methods – we use SAS), or by offering innovative CSC499, CSC600 (Independent Study) courses to advanced students.

About Advisement - like the departmental advisement (“all prof can help you”) - timely communication (email questions) - visit and email. - (PIN retrieval: prefer electronic/phone advisement.) - Would be ok without PIN (PIN dependency might cause delay in registration) - Incorrect advisement (selecting non relevant courses)(not necessarily CS dept) - CAPP might be “messed up”. (problem change of curriculum). - Calendar reminders 2.) About their ability to design, analyze, implement and evaluate computer based solutions - “feel good about everything except programming”. - “skill improvement over semesters” - “like more networking than coding” 3.) About Resources - More IT classes (certifications) - Tutor for class assignments (TA) - Computer related classes should be in a computer lab. - More comfy seats 4.) About Quality of Teaching - Appreciate instructor’s Enthusiasm and knowledge (CS) - “prof are helpful” : Office hours departmental sharing - like “open door policy” help. (anytime help from instructors) - request extra office hours if needed. - Less major classes (more relevant classes, more electives)

About Advisement - During summer months email preferred. - In person better (if feasible) - Ability to request pin from any CS professor. - Taking unnecessary classes due to missing placement. - Course waivers for work professional experience (in the major) 6.) About their ability to design, analyze, implement and evaluate computer based solutions - Improvement in programming skill - Better understanding Grasp of the Object-oriented approach 7.) About Resources - Books are expensive. - More comfy chairs - Too many passwords too frequent changes (password rules should be easer). (provide ‘hints’ capability) 8.) About Quality of Teaching - Prefer studying within a Group - More one-on-one in-class time - More hands-on - Class participation should be optional (for some students)

  • 149. 149Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU  To find a job that allows me to support my family.  Project manager for a computer science firm. My most significant or memorable learning experiences in this program have been:  Internet programming, programming 1&2, system administration, & networking courses because I continue to use these course skills regularly. Database (335) was a big help too!  Klaus's clauses.  CSL 465 with Dr. Elahi. Networking is my interest, that was a great course. Took over summer.  Human computer interactions (HCI) opened my eyes to alternate development principles that are applicable to C.S. but to other R+D as well.  Ethics, security.  Operating systems (CSC 305), Algorithms (CSC 321), Software Design and Development (CSC 330), E Commerce (CSC 463), Data Structures (CSC 212).  Most significant learning experience would be the calculus classes as well as the algorithm and data structure classes. Difficulty plays a large part in classes being memorable. Many classes were too easy to really be memorable or to recommend taking.  I think the most significant experiences were in basic computer programming course. I learned a lot there.  Learning stuff.  The CSC course where I worked in a group simulating a real project and got introduced to the project management aspect of development.  Hands on step by step learning how to program and seeing actual results from the procedures.  I enjoyed computer systems, Java, HCI, and all the professors that have been so enthusiastic about teaching.  Networking, software design and engineering.  Independent study where I had a chance to learn something very interesting and enjoyable.  Any class I was unknowledgeable in was memorable through dedication to learn.  Doing the CSC 330 project and working with a group on programming. Also, I love the programming classes.  Making my first program.  Doing things other than programming. Hands on learning is much better than sitting there in a chair. So I guess networking and digital design stood out.  Studying of algorithms and applying to programming.  CSC 453 (SQL Injection Research Project), CSC 463 (Recommend summer courses app), CSC 330 (Project in general).  Programming freedom, being able to add my own touch to programs. CSC 212.  1st: Competing in the ACM programming contest was an excellent feeling/experience. I enjoyed using my problem solving skills in a competitive atmosphere. 2nd: CSC 321- Algorithms. This class taught me that almost any problem can be reduced to a certain type, and that there is an approach.  Data basing, Java, user central system design software design, computer systems.  My most memorable learning experiences in this program was the hands-on projects and group projects. These help put into focus how the real-world works and helped me become more involved with people in my field.  Working with other students in groups for class assignments outside of class time.
  • 150. 150Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU  Learning the meaning of coding and why it is important in the structure of computer software.  Several courses have involved projects that require teamwork and substantial effort to accomplish. These projects promote the development of strong communication skills, something I haven't experienced in other departments. This program makes me feel prepared to enter the working world not only with the technical skills I expected to learn, but also the professional skills I know I'll need to succeed.  CSC 212 with Podnar was an interesting class as the programming topics we covered were difficult but enlightening.  Doing hands on work with the computer itself/learning how the computer works.  Research classes where I interact with other faculty.  In web developing; I think it was CSC 204 with professor workman.  The most significant learning experience has been all the extra time and effort doctor DaPonte put in to help me during office hours during CSC 153.  Is when I am able to program and complete a program.  Meeting my advisor and becoming good friends, has certainly made my educational journey at least tolerable, if not memorable.  First learning how to code in the first CS class I took.  The software package provided is great!  ??  I am not in the program. I am not a student here. The strengths of the program are:  Sys. Administration was one of the more interesting courses. At the time I entered C++ was very helpful. Professors were always available and helpful.  Chances for group and individual work, good preparation for real world.  Software development/coding  There is broad coverage of the general C.S. field.  Knowledgeable and professional faculty.  ease of conduct with professors, availability of resource.  Learn lots of important background theory. Lots of programming education.  Good labs to work in. Teachers are approachable with any questions. A cornucopia of topics that are detailed.  Background theory. We learn about the whole computer system whether it is programming or hardware, etc.  The classes each build up from previous courses.  The broad spectrum of what this program offers. Instead of focusing on something specific, the background covering many things.  Several teachers who understand the material well and communicate their knowledge well.  The tight-knit sense of community. Communication is very good and a lot of the people in my classes are in others as well. Also I feel free to contact any professor on a friendly basis. Also free software!  We get introduced to almost every aspect of computer science. From programming, to network management, to hardware design, to interfaces.  Prepares me to take certification exam.  Strength in the program would have to be the constant update to the curriculum based on current technology.  The classes that deal with working with teams and classes that work with programming.  The professors.
  • 151. 151Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU  Learning programming, group and individual work, advisement.  Diversity of technological teaching. Many different languages and aspects.  Well rounded course selection  Well rounded understanding of all aspects of computers, due to range of classes.  The faculty is super flexible and wants to see every student succeed. In addition, the program seems to be centered towards giving people the skills they'll need in most work environments.  Free software..  The diversity of courses..  Encouraging students to work well in groups.  Interesting and challenging.  Courses in the program generally make me want to learn more about their subjects. Rather than being taught particular skills and not how to apply them, I am being given the tools I need to learn on my own, which is something that is very necessary in the world of computers. Most courses in the program exceed my expectations and fill me with the sense that I can easily compete with students from tech schools, a sentiment which many faculty repeatedly reinforce.  Many of the topics are interesting, I always see classes listed that I am looking forward to taking. Professors are fantastic and understanding which is very helpful when I feel overwhelmed.  Challenging.  Understanding computer hardware.  Good teachers, good hands on experience.  Math programming.  The staff.  Lots of information to help an undecided student go where they want to go.  the professors are extremely helpful, and approachable. The chair of the CS dept. is the best 2nd extremely helpful.  Lots of programming course.  The professors.  Its challenging.  The teacher are all enthusiastic and intelligent, if a bit stodgy in their ways.  Focused on self-learners, after-hours help if needed, realistic way of teaching whre neither too little nor too much is expected (mostly).  The teachers.  It is very challenging and allows students to apply previous knowledge.  N/A What I would most like to see improved is:  More programming courses, or braking courses nto more detailed protion instead of such a rush. Stepping into the real world made me aware of a lot of material that was never covered. I'm aware that this is not a tech school, but that type of attitude would have been more helpful.  Advisors (some of them) need to be more helpful.  Networking. More real world applications why so much Java? Why can't I come out of SCSU with a few certificates?  The C.S. (programming) does not seem to be systematic. Different instructors stress different items (low level) as the most important. I did not feel as if the program was coherent.
  • 152. 152Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU  Structure, concise development, re-organized courses layout.  Remove PHY 355 (Electricity and Electronics) as a CSC requirement.  The usability of Banner web and the organization of the course material. I procrastinated assignments because of the frustrating task of finding the template online.  Source control (git, subversion), less Java- I wish the intro classes were in ctt of c, less dependency on using IDE's- compiling should be done through the command line for smaller projects, make files.  I think that more hands on technology (hardware) experience should be incorporated. I'm graduating soon and still know very little about meder hardware of PC's/meres/chix.  More real world scenarios. Less tedious projects. Hate data entry and menial tasks.  Programming skills. Learn how to program directly from the teacher. Program in class to give us more knowledge on how to use different and efficient coding. Networking and al hardware course need more advanced equipment. Everything is old.  Showing how CS is applied in outside jobs and not leaving it so general. Scheduling classes is also difficult because of the times they are offered, and space limitations.  Less science based requirements.  Better continuity between the lower level programming classes, ex. CSC 152 to 153 to 212. Increased ability of certain teachers, to convey their message in class.  Office hours +availability a lot of its at night and at weird hours. Also its difficult to complete a degree on time because of the large number of requirements and too many prerequisites.  A class that focus on videogame design.  Better organizations of classes offered; more sections to popular classes.  More classes with programming with more diverse languages. I would love to see an improvement on the Artificial Intelligence course.  More room for electives.  More classes being available as in having more electives to choose from.  I see the value of having students find out many things for themselves. Perhaps notifying them of all software needed and how to access it before the semester starts would help.  Web app development: a more advanced approach.  More time for computer courses/electives, less time on math.  I feel that the program has not necessarily given me the background I need to get into graduate school.  desks! Options for elective classes.  The technology and communications. For being the high-tech program, I feel our labs should be more up to date, with more program tool options. We as a CS department should have the latest computers and better classrooms. Communication seem disorganized as all professors have a different way to communicate with students. Vista, WebCT, Google, blog, collab. sites, all make things more confusing. There should be a standardized way to communicate. blog, build, create projects- more group projects.  Courses where the only grades are exams should, in my opinion, give students an opportunity to be graded on other assignments as well.  To incorporate the use of computers in all programming classes because not using a computer while learning things like Java makes it very difficult transitioning from traditional styled teaching to then having to learn Java is difficult.  The differences between the CS and CIS programs seem minimal. Though I am in the CIS program, I am being encouraged to take courses that seem more CS-oriented, and I am learning skills I feel are not related to my future career path. If there is a specific reason for this structure, it would help my confidence to have a clear explanation why.  Cheaper books would be nice.
  • 153. 153Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU  Classes offered more often, more freedom with electives.  Textbooks that are written with the NEW, INEXPERIENCED student in mind. Many textbooks are not student friendly.  Too many passwords and usernames: email, active directory, bannerweb….should be consolidated into a single login/password. Chairs very uncomfortable in some classrooms.  Not a 4 1/2 hour class..  Math networking.  Multiple major courses. There are 1-2 sections for courses and there should be more  Open up the computer science majors beyond CS and CSI. Let the student choose whether they want to do programming or some other path.  Do not force computer science majors to do programming. A lot of students want a computer science degree, but do not want to do programming, so offer a more variety of computer fields.  I would like to see more courses offered.  Not sure.  Java is already an old, tired language. I believe it may be time to move on. If an employer required me to use it, I don't think I could continue to work there.  A willingness to slow down and review if the instructor feels the class has fallen behind or is not fully comprehending the material.  Connectedness between different courses and different teacher is a must! Ex. 152 to 153 to 212- Time Management is consideration to similarity between semesters- finish everything?  Use of computers. This is a programming class and we don't get to do any programming in class. The teacher shows powerpoint slides and writes pieces of code on the board. (not learning!!!)  N/A. Please feel free to provide any additional comments about your experiences in this department. Also, what additional question(s) should we have asked about your experiences in this department? [Please feel free to continue on a separate sheet of paper.]  Many library products are out of date. Computer systems in the library do not maintain the same software versions of [????] applications to perform coursework.  Prof. [ ] is too old/boring to teach effectively.  Maybe have more classes other languages. Maybe have a gaming language classes because its very popular.  A more proactive approach to students getting job opportunities with professors help.  I feel confidence at being in the department.  More CSC classes, for graphics, repair, trouble shooting are needed.  Questions regarding my feelings of preparedness for a career in my field should have been asked. The IT field is drastically different from other fields, so I don't think it is completely fair to judge this department using the same standards as other departments at SCSU.  I love the department and the professors in it, I just don't like that there are no other
  • 154. 154Undergraduate Program Review 2010 - General Computer Science Program Computer Science Department, SCSU alternatives except programming. School of network security or web development would be nice.  I have found the professors that I have encountered in this department go above and beyond to help students. Professors are knowledgeable, courteous, and take an interest in students as individuals.  Library do very well at SCSU! (and its faculty).  I was a computer science major but lack of help (usually office hours were the problem) made these classes next to impossible for me. This is why I unfortunately had to switch my major!
