Third Trimester, School Year: 2017- 2018

I. Course Code: IT 12 – Data Communications and Networking


3 units
Lecture: two times a week – 2 hours x 18 weeks
Laboratory: three times a week – 3 hours x 18 weeks

II. Course Description:

The purpose of the course is to provide an overview of communication network functions and a good foundation for further studies
in the subject. It involves understanding and application of design principles and methods for systems development and review of the
underlying systems, and communications technologies and significant standardized systems.

The course provides instruction in data communication and computer networks through lectures, tutorials and laboratory work as
well as reading instructions and training materials for the student's own work.

V. Bases of Evaluation:

1. Course requirements that are evaluated based on the rubrics.


2. Online courses from EDX.org.
3. Prelim, midterm and final major examinations.
4. The standard grading system of the University.
5. Rubrics:
a. Rubric for Diagrams (RFD)
b. Rubric for Game Package (RFGP)
c. Rubric for Research Paper (RFRP)
d. Rubric for Presentations (RFP)

VI. Grading System:

1. Prelim Score = 33% Prelim Class Standing + 33% Prelim Laboratory + 34% Prelim Exam
2. Midterm Score = 50% Prelim Score + 50% Tentative Midterm Score
a. Tentative Midterm Score = 33% Midterm Class Standing + 33% Midterm Laboratory + 34% Midterm Exam
3. Final Score = 50% Midterm Score + 50% Tentative Final Score
a. Tentative Final Score = 33% Final Class Standing + 33% Midterm Laboratory + 34% Final Exam

Note: 1. CS is composed of the course requirements and the required online courses.
2. Scores are transmuted to an equivalent grade where a score of 50% is needed to get a passing grade of 75.
