Information Systems

This course can be used as a study resource, for professional development, or to earn college credit by passing a CLEP™ exam (multiple-choice examination).  Each college sets its own credit-granting policies for the exam, so check with your college admissions office, test center, or academic adviser before taking the test.  

The Information Systems course covers material that is usually taught in an introductory one-semester college course in the subject. Information systems’ basic terminology and concepts will be tested as well as how to apply that knowledge.  In-depth details of hardware design or programming techniques which are language-specific is not emphasized.  Knowledge of specific products used in applications such as word processing or spreadsheets is not required.  Approaches and techniques which apply to different products and application scenarios will be the exam’s focus.  A first-year high school level knowledge of algebra is expected.

Information Systems textbooks differ on the precise definition of the systems development process or life cycle. To avoid ambiguity, CLEP™ defines the systems development process as consisting of the following discrete phases or stages:

1. Planning
2. Analysis
3. Design
4. Implementation
5. Maintenance

Information Systems

An information system (IS) is a formal, sociotechnical, organizational system designed to collect, process, store, and distribute information. In a sociotechnical perspective, information systems are composed by four components: task, people, structure (or roles), and technology.*

Gain Confidence

Our flashcard system requires you to really learn the answers. If you have learned an answer to a question so you can type it in, then you will be able to choose it from a multiple-choice list. You don’t need to know the answers to the flashcard questions when you start using DSSTPrep…because our system will teach you the answers! After you type an answer to a question, the correct answer will appear, along with an explanation and sometimes a video. Read the answer and an explanation. You will encounter every question in your subject many times. With repeated study sessions, you will learn the correct answers.

Flexibility

DSSTPrep courses are completely self-paced. The average student has their subscription for three months. How long it will take you to earn 90% or more on your progress bar will depend on how often you study and how quickly you are able to learn your subject. As you go through your course, you will move more quickly through the material as you learn the answers. Some people hunker down and study hard over a few days or a week to complete their course and take their exams. It really will depend on your goals for completing your DSSTPrep course and how soon you want to take your DSST® exam.

The Information Systems exam contains approximately 100 questions to be answered in 90 minutes. Some of these are pretest questions that will not be scored.
