Final Quiz (5% of semester grade)
Instructions: There are three (3) topic areas listed below that are designed to measure your knowledge level specific to your understanding and ability to analyze the professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues in the global field of computing. You must respond to all three questions by providing appropriate responses in essay form. The references for this assignment must be newer (less than 2 years old) than for the other assignments. In most cases the topic area has several components. Each must be addressed to properly satisfy requirements.
State-wide and in most professional industries, there has been a mandate that college students be more proficient in their writing. While this is not a writing class, all writing assignments will be graded for grammar, syntax and typographical correctness to help address this mandate.
Pay attention to what you are being asked to do (see Grading Rubric below). For example, to describe does not mean to list, but to tell about or illustrate in more than two or three sentences, providing appropriate arguments for your responses using theories discussed in our text. Be sure to address all parts of the topic question as most have multiple parts. A verifiable current event (less than 2 years old) relevant to each of the topics is a fundamental component of your quiz as well. You must have at least one reference for each topic and you cannot use the same reference to satisfy this requirement. You cannot use information from the text book or any book/article by the author of the text book as a current event. Make sure that your reference has a date of publication. References with no date (n.d.) are not acceptable. Each question requires a reference citation in the text of your answer and a reference at the end of the question to which the reference applies. You must include some information obtained from the reference in your answer. The references must be found on the internet and you must include a URL in your reference so that the reference can be verified.
You should type your responses directly under the appropriate question. Be sure to include your name on the quiz. Include your name in the document filename. Your completed quiz must be placed in the appropriate eCollege Dropbox, no later than 11:59pm on the due date. Do well.
2. (a) Describe at least 3 of the most significant ethical/social issues for individuals and at least 3 of the most significant ethical/social issues for businesses/organizations in the field of Computer Science. (b) Which, if any, of these issues overlap both individuals and businesses/organizations? (c) For each issue that you identified that is causing a major ethical/social problem for society, suggest a solution for this problem. Be as concise as possible in your answer and do not address the issue of security threats in this question. Please elaborate (beyond a yes or no answer)
3. The field of computer science has changed during your lifetime and will continue to change in the future. When the Computer Science department at this University was created in 1974 students were using keypunch cards to run programs on the main frame. There was no PC, no cell phone, no phone aps, no internet, no Facebook, no Twitter, no Google, no Microsoft, etc. The field of computer science has changed dramatically from then till now. Over your entire life the changes could be as dramatic as it has been since the CS Department was created. (a) How important is it to you to keep up to date with the coming changes in hardware, software and ethical issues? (b) What specific steps will you in engage in to make sure that you are up to date as a computer professional? Please elaborate (beyond a yes or no answer)
