Class Information


CIS 120DB Course Competencies and Homework


This Class is competency based. The Faculty within the district decide the competencies and I use them to create the objectives. The assignments for the class are designed to meet the objectives and demonstrate your ability to meet the competencies.


Software instruction will usually take place in a classroom equipped with computers. You will be responsible for additional lab time outside of class to complete homework assignments and to prepare for tests.

I accept late assignments but they will be penalized so don't procrastinate. I will not grade more than 2 late assignments!

For Your Protection:

It is your responsibility to SAVE your assignments in a folder, on your computer or another removable media.  Keep these copies in a safe place until you have received your final grade.

Student Disabilities:
Students with disabilities who believe they may need accommodations are encouraged to contact the Disability Resource Center, KSC-Building -119, 602.787.7170.

Grading Information



You will receive 60% for completing the example in class. 70 to 80% for improving upon the assignment in class. 90 to 100% for a completely new demonstration of that concept.

Your homework is not late until I finish grading the class.

I accept late assignments but I won't grade it until the end of the semester. You will receive only 70% of the grade you would have received if you turned the work in on time!
