Effective IT curricula balances tradition with innovation. One way to enhance that balance is to examine the common threads in the various knowledge areas.
This paper provides a progress report of the joint curriculum task force effort to develop a new model curriculum for undergraduate programs in Information Systems. The curriculum work is the first collaborative effort between ACM and other professional societies associated with information systems education. The paper presents a brief background… (More)
This paper describes how a process for mapping the curriculum of a four-year IS degree program (Daigle et al. 2004), using the IS2002 Model Curriculum and Guidelines for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Information Systems (Gorgone et al. 2002), is useful for analyzing the impact of a proposed curriculum change. An example, based on an actual use of IS2002… (More)
The Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP) and the Center for Computing Education Research (CCER) have formed a coalition of 40 universities and colleges to develop an outcome assessment examination reflecting the objectives and learning units espoused in the IS 2002 Model Curriculum. An early version of this examination was beta… (More)
During the past several years, software engineers have developed various programming environments to aid in the software development process. Some of these environments, serving as pedagogical tools have focused on the coding phase (Chandhok et al 1985), (Johnson and Soloway 1983) and (Shapiro et al 1981). It is a firm belief that the emphasis, especially… (More)
Using the six information systems core areas for accreditation and the IS 2002 model curriculum as a framework, this paper proposes and uses metrics for reporting the breadth and depth of coverage across content areas, using data from a sample of 18 four-year IS degree programs. The results indicate that analysis and design and role of IS in organizations… (More)
The Center for Computing Education Research (CCER), a division of the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP) Education Foundation, has developed a methodology for assessment for programs of Information Systems (2,7,8,9,10) that is general and can be applied to other computing programs. It is proposed that CCER technology be utilized… (More)
