Network Security(CAP-385)1 credits

Course Description
Design a secure network based on business, management, and network factors; implement user and group policies to tighten security, secure computers and plan a network for internet access; plan, deploy, manage and monitor servers; encryption and secure sites. (CAP-385) 1.00 s.h.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:


  • Explain concepts of cryptography and digital signatures.

  • Describe common network vulnerabilities, attacks and defense mechanism.

  • Describe the requirements and mechanisms for the identification of possible threats to network security and evaluate the procedures to protect against these threats.

  • Explain the steps necessary for implementing user and group policies to prevent unauthorized access.

  • Explain the procedures to plan a network that allows secure communication over the Internet.

  • Discuss the tools administrators use to monitor the activity on servers and secure the mission critical data on a network.
Link: go to https://www2.tesu.edu/plasearch.php and type in "network security" and click submit button.
In all honesty it would be too expensive to PLA a one credit course. You will have to pay for PLA-200 and then pay the portfolio fee. Unless you're planning on doing atleast 12 credits I'd look look elsewhere for a 1 credit course.

PLA is an expensive and time-consuming option. You have to take the PLA course and write a paper about why you should get credit. It's not really worth it for just one credit, IMO. Cheaper, but not as cheap as alternate sources, possible options:

Not self-paced, but University of North Dakota has several UL CS credits that might work: https://und.edu/academics/online/index.h...er-Science

$549 - UL programming credit via ACE: https://www.statistics.com/courses/custo...tics-in-r/
UL CS ACE credit: https://www.statistics.com/courses/anomaly-detection/

I wouldn't recommend a PLA done for just 1 credit, it's a waste of money and resources at the school. PLA generally is used for multiple credits, you're paying a price for up to 12 credits, why not do a PLA for 12 UL credits instead of just 1. The reason is, that's the most cost effective way to get UL from experience/experimental learning outside of the classroom. It will take at least a month to write up and get your assessment evaluated.

I asked a TESU advisor about Statistics.com for the two courses below that marked (*) or considered as UL based on ACE recommendation, but both courses can't be used for BACS:

1) SQL - Introduction to Database Queries* --> advisor answered: This will transfer in as TESU course DSI-330 (this course will not apply towards your Bachelor’s degree program)

2) Optimization - Linear Programming* --> advisor answered: This will transfer in as TESU course DSI-310 (this course will not apply towards your Bachelor’s degree program)

That's a shame, that they don't accept those for a CS degree.

Is that how the PLA works? Wow...

Btw, I am about halfway done learning the Linear Algebra. So, I guess I will just take the exam in the next two weeks or so.

For 2.67 credits instead of 3, I would request that the dean get involved and the credits be rounded up.

Yup, the best usage for PLA is for UL or hard to find courses that can't be test-out-able.

For now, basically, I would recommend leaving it as is and go on with taking the Linear Algebra course.
I would only check with the dean if and if only the Linear Algebra option doesn't work out as intended...
