Students may wish to purchase the current Reference Summary from IBM. This reference is not currently available from the
Metro bookstores. It may be obtained from IBM on-line at
http://www.elink.ibmlink.ibm.com/public/applications/publications/cgibin/pbi.cgi and search on “z/Architecture” or publication no. SA22-7871-00. An early version of the Reference Summary is available as a class handout. A Reference Summary
may be used during closed-book exams.
Another useful IBM manual is Principles of Operation, which contains the most complete description of the IBM mainframe
hardware and every individual machine language instruction. Latest versions may be found at the above URL, again searching
under “z/Architecture” or publication no. SA22-7832-00. Some editions are available for a free download.
SECTION III: STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES
METHODS OF LEARNING:
The student will have specific assignments to read and master. These assignments are indicated in the course schedule and/or outlined
by the instructor. The student should have read the material prior to class meeting date.
This course requires students to work an average of 1.5 hours per week in hands-on, lab activity. Students are responsible for completing all lab work outside of the classroom. While you may choose to do this lab work someplace other than the College, Metro provides
computer labs for students who do not have the required resources or facilities available to them. The software for this course will be
available at the South Omaha Campus only. A downloadable MS-DOS version of the software used in this class has been located on
the Web, but its functionality has not been fully determined (http://www.simtel.net/pub/pd/45216.html). We also anticipate exploring
an on-line IBM z-series mainframe server provided through IBM’s University Program. This service will be available to any PC having web access and a standard web browser.
RETAINING COPIES OF SUBMITTED WORK:
On very rare occasion, the instructor has been unable to find any record of work that a student claims to have submitted. There may be
several reasons this has occurred, including loss or theft of the work before it gets to the instructor, or oversight on the part of the student or instructor. The student should understand that grades are based upon achievement of learning objectives and successful completion of assignments. If work is missing, for whatever reason, it becomes impossible for the instructor to evaluate it and assign a
grade. It is highly recommended that students keep backup copies of all work submitted toward the unlikely event that it might need to
be resubmitted.
ATTENDANCE STATEMENT:
The course will be covered partially by assigned portions of the text and may be presented in a sequence different from the text. Material will also be covered that is not in the text. Attendance is necessary to understand the course material. Each student is expected to
recognize the importance of class attendance and promptness. CHRONIC TARDINESS AND ABSENCES MAY RESULT IN A
REDUCTION IN THE FINAL GRADE BY 10%.
Excessive absences or unsatisfactory progress will subject the student to administrative withdrawal from the course. If a student should
miss a class for any reason, he/she is expected to cover the material he/she missed on his/her own. All work must be made up to the
satisfaction of the instructor.
STUDENT WITHDRAWAL:
If you cannot attend and complete this course, you should officially withdraw by calling Central Registration, 457-5231. Failure to
officially withdraw will result in either an instructor withdraw (IW) or failing (F) grade. The last date to withdraw is identified on the
second page of this syllabus handout.
ACADEMIC HONESTY STATEMENT:
Students are reminded that materials they may use as sources for this course may be subject to copyright protection. Additional information about copyright is provided on the library webpage at http://www.mccneb.edu/library, by your instructor, or by the College's
Copyright Officer.
In response to incidents of student dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.), the College imposes specific actions that may include receiving a failing grade on a test, failure in the course, suspension from the College, or dismissal from the College. The disciplinary procedures are available in the Counseling/Advising Centers and at
http://www.mccneb.edu/procedures/V-4_Student_Conduct_and_Discipline.htm.
Please note: ANY sharing or transfer of assigned work or test contents or answers between a student and any other person or
party; in part or in whole; whether by disk exchange, E-mail, manual transcription, codevelopment of an assignment, or any
Metropolitan Community College

other means; unless authorized by the instructor in advance in accordance with the guidelines in the following paragraph; will
be considered academic misconduct and be sanctioned with disciplinary action in accordance with the above paragraph. Both
originating and receiving parties will be liable to such sanction.
Sharing of class notes and handouts is authorized. Obtaining assistance from others (including tutors or lab techs) for specific programming issues or debugging is authorized. However, no further collaboration is authorized for any standard assignment. Students
wishing to collaborate further must contact the instructor for special assignments. Such special assignments must clearly identify in
advance which portions are the responsibility of each individual student wishing to collaborate. The learning objectives, level of difficulty, and typical work involved for each portion must be comparable to that for a single student working alone on the corresponding
standard assignment. Each portion will be graded individually. Each portion must clearly represent the competency of the individual
responsible for it, and only that individual. The instructor reserves the right to refuse any request for special assignments.
Indications of unauthorized collaboration and/or intent to defraud include, but are not restricted to, assignments, submitted by students
(not necessarily from the same section) individually under each of their respective names; but which are essentially identical; are essentially identical except for mechanical changes such as differing variable or module names; are essentially identical except for differing
comments; or exhibit essentially identical idiosyncratic features such as errors in syntax, style, logic, output formatting, or spelling.
The same criteria apply to submissions, by one or more students, where those submissions bear indications of copying from any other
unauthorized source. Authorized sources are the student textbook for the class, lecture notes, class handouts, and compiler/interpreter
documentation and help materials.
In summary, if you want a grade attached to your name and only your name (the only way I know MCC records grades), the work you
submit must be your work and only your work.
USE OF STUDENT WORK
The ownership of student works submitted in fulfillment of classroom requirements shall remain with the student(s): By enrolling in
classes offered by Metropolitan Community College, the student gives the College license to mark on, modify, and retain the work as
may be required by the process of instruction, as described in the course syllabus. The institution shall not have the right to use the
work in any other manner without the written consent of the student(s).
Please note: Nothing in the preceding paragraph overrides the restrictions on sharing or distribution of solutions to assignments and tests or any other policy or procedure discussed above under the Academic Honesty Statement.
ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT LEARNING PROGRAM
Metropolitan Community College is committed to continuous improvement of teaching and learning. You may be asked to help us to
accomplish this objective. For example, you may be asked to respond to surveys or questionnaires. In other cases, tests or assignments
you are required to do for this course may be shared with faculty and used for assessment purposes. This will be done in accordance
with FERPA guidelines.
TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES:
As you pursue your educational objectives, you may be required to use computer information technology resources at Metropolitan
Community College. Use of these resources is a privilege and carries with it a responsibility to respect the rights and privacy of others,
the integrity of facilities, and to follow Student Conduct Guidelines and College Policies.
By using the information technology systems at MCC (including the computer systems and phones) you acknowledge and consent to
the conditions of use as set forth in the Metropolitan Community College Procedures Memorandum on Acceptable Use of Information
Technology and Resources. It is your responsibility as a student to be familiar with these procedures. The full text of the Procedures
Memorandum may be found at the following website: http://www.mccneb.edu/itprocedures.htm
USE OF COLLEGE COMPUTERS
When you use computers in College computer labs, learning centers, libraries and many classrooms, you will need to login using your
student username and password. Your username is the same as your WebAdvisor username and your initial password is your student
ID with leading zeros to make it seven digits. If you need assistance, please contact staff at any of the computer labs, learning centers
and libraries; your instructor may also be able to help.
It is recommended that students save their files to removable media often as they work. The College reserves the right to take steps
necessary to maintain the confidentiality of student identity information through the use of automatic logouts and screensavers.

SECTION IV: INSTRUCTOR RESPONSIBILITIES
METHODS OF INSTRUCTION:
In each lecture during this course, the instructor will cover material the student needs to learn and accomplish. In addition, written
handouts will be provided from time to time. These will be used to supplement the text material and expand the course.
Instruction will consist mainly of lecture material presented by the instructor. In some classes, group discussion and demonstration will
be utilized. In all meetings, discussion opportunities will be provided and the student is encouraged to ask questions and clarify information as the instructor is lecturing and/or presenting material.
METHODS OF ASSESSING STUDENT PROGRESS:
Student progress is assessed through the completion of assigned projects and tests. A summary of programming assignments and tests
may be found at the end of the syllabus under the heading PROJECTED SCHEDULE OF ASSIGNMENTS. Attendance and class participation may also be taken into consideration.
The majority of programming assignments require the student to take a basic set of program requirements and, based on knowledge
gained from reading and class, develop a program using the typical program development process. Work will be evaluated on the adequacy of program planning; correctness of coding generated; usage of comments to describe and clarify program logic, identifier/symbol usage, and input/output requirements; adequacy of program testing procedures; and adequacy of program documentation. Of
course, the program should also run correctly. Full points are awarded for the inclusion of the specified item(s), with points being deducted for notable problems. Typical point assignments for these various aspects of programming for a 60 point program is as follows:
Planning & external documentation:
3 input layout(s)
3 printer/output layout(s)
2 hierarchy diagram
6 flowchart or pseudocode
Usage of comments in program:
2 general description
2 misc. input/output requirements
2 identifier/symbol usage
5 program logic
5 coding style, etc.
5 methodology
10 correct assembly
15 correct run
--------60 total
Exams consist mostly of fill-in-the-blank questions and short programming segments.
CRITERIA FOR DETERMINING FINAL COURSE GRADE:
A percentage grade will be obtained by dividing the total points a student earns by the total possible points for the course. The points
for each assignment and test may be found in the PROJECTED SCHEDULE OF ASSIGNMENTS found at the end of the syllabus.
The percentage grade will then determine the letter grade for the course, according to the following table:

MAKE-UP TEST PROCEDURES:
Students MUST be present on the day of an announced test. If the instructor is informed BEFORE THE TEST concerning a valid
absence, other arrangements MAY be made. There will be no retakes of tests. Test dates are not firm and are therefore subject to
change.
LATE ASSIGNMENTS:
Assignments turned in late may lose 10% per class day for up to a week and will then receive a grade of 0. Instructor reserves the right
not to accept assignments after the test has been given. Also, see “Attendance” above.

MAINTENANCE OF STUDENT RECORDS:
Test will be returned after grading for review in class and then recollected and retained for record keeping purposes. All other work is
graded and returned as soon as possible, usually by the following week. All grades are kept by the instructor in a grade book and on
computer, which students may see at any time by asking the instructor.
