O'Neil, Sharon Lund; Everett, Donna R.
This course is the third of seven in the Information Systems curriculum. The purpose of the course is to familiarize students with database management concepts and standard database management software. Databases and their roles, advantages, and limitations are explained. An overview of the course sets forth the condition and performance standard for each of the five task areas in the course. These components are provided for each task area: behavioral objective, suggested teaching strategies, content, and summary. Topics covered include database management terms, concepts, vocabulary, and principles; hands-on operational knowledge of database management software; factors to consider in comparison and evaluation, selection, modification, and utilization of database management software; gathering information to design, create, set up, utilize, and integrate a database in an automated environment; and implementation of a database management system and written documentation. A glossary of database management management terminology follows task area 1. Appendixes include visuals (transparencies and other teacher materials), student materials (student handouts, work sheets, and exercise materials), evaluation (end-of-task and end-of-unit questions, test items, etc.), and references (including an eight-page bibliography, articles, and resources).
