  • True
  • False


Question 11
3 / 3 pts
Which of the following statements is/are correct?

  • A. In SQL, a primary key/surrogate key must have an INT data type
  • B. In SQL, if your dimension table is including natural keys, a natural key must have an INT data type
  • C. In SQL, a fact must have an INT data type

  • A and C are correct
  • B and C are correct
  • A, B, and C are correct

So your SQL would look like:
CREATE TABLE SHIPMENT_FACT (
SHIPMENT_ID CHAR(15) NOT NULL,
PRODUCT_KEY INT NOT NULL,
CUSTOMER_KEY INT NOT NULL,
{{{... rest of your columns...}}}
PRIMARY KEY (SHIPMENT_ID),
FOREIGN KEY PRODUCT_KEY REFERENCES PRODUCT_DIM (PRODUCT_KEY),
...

(Solved): CIS 355 Assignment 4 ...


Using the same subject area as you did for Assignment #3 (unless directed by your instructor to choose another subject area), you will create a star schema SQL Server model, with tables pasted as in Assignment 3, containing both types of factless fact tables, as discussed in the course lecture:

Case 1: business activity ("something happened”), but nothing to measure

Case 2: “conditions, coverage, or eligibility” – a “state of being” – but nothing to measure

If you had any points deducted for your dimension tables in Assignment #3, you will need to "fix" any issues for Assignment #4.

You will remove your transaction-grained fact tables from your model and replace them with factless fact tables, as described above.

You also may need to add a DATE/TIME-related dimension table if you didn't have one in Assignment #3; if you do, you can EITHER delete one of your Assignment 3 dimension tables and replace with DATE/TIME, or just add the new DATE/TIME one to the existing 3; your choice based on what makes sense for your model.

You will upload your PPTX (or PDF) deliverable that contains your model to this link before the due date/time.

GRADING RUBRIC:

25 points total: 9 points for dimension tables, 8 points for each of your faceless fact tables

  • Dimension tables: 3 points for each one (including DATE/TIME dimension; if you have 4 total, all 4 will factor into this portion of the grading), "all or nothing" correctness: 
    • surrogate key as primary key with correct data type and NOT NULL clause
    • correct PRIMARY KEY clause
    • no FOREIGN KEY clause or other syntax violations
  • Fact tables: 8 points for each, based on:
    • SQL syntax: 4 points, "all or nothing" including PRIMARY and FOREIGN KEY clauses/constraints; correct primary key designation; no facts/measurements, only keys; other syntax
    • Correct fact table usage: 4 points
      • For both fact tables: your dimensions are correctly and fully related to the business subject area that you selected - (example: if you were to do "SEASON TICKETS" then you must have one or more appropriate dimensions related to SEASON TICKETS  - in other words, you need to have more than just syntactically correct PK and FK columns, your model needs to "make sense")
      • "Business event with nothing to measure" must be correct and related to health care/hospital
      • "Coverage/eligiblity/'state of being'" must be correct and related to ASU ATHLETICS - make sure that your relation(s) to your date/time dimensions are syntactically and semantically correct

Chapter 12 Practice Test

Attempt 20 out of 20 points  

 

QUESTION 1

Can a state (such as Iowa or Michigan) pass legislation that contradicts ERISA law?          2 points  

  • Yes. Insurance and pensions are largely regulated by state laws.  ERISA is a federal law that supplements - not replaces - state laws.  Regardless if a state law is deemed to be "reasonable" and "fair" then a state may pass legislation that contradicts ERISA regulations.        
  • No. ERISA regulations may not be contradicted by state laws. ERISA preempts or supersedes any state law that attempts to contradict those plans covered by ERISA.

 

QUESTION 2

Which of the following is a qualifying event necessitating an offer of COBRA continuation coverage?     2 points          

  • an employee is reprimanded        
  • an employee leaves on vacation        
  • an employee adopts a child        
  • an employee quits his job

 

QUESTION 3

About ERISA, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, it is correct to say that:        2 points        

  • the law governs only pension plans        
  • the law only applies to "welfare" plans         
  • the law governs benefit plans broadly, not just pension plans 

  

QUESTION 4

An employee whose wife suffered from breast cancer was terminated after a change of ownership of the company. He asked whether their health insurance would continue, and was told verbally that it would. Nine months later when his wife sought treatment, she was advised the policy had been terminated. He and his wife sued for a violation of COBRA. The court should rule: ?        2 points          

  • ?for the employer, since the employee never requested in writing that their insurance be continued        
  • ?for the employee, since he was not given notice of his COBRA rights in writing        
  • ?for the employee’s wife, because she was also an insured, but was given no notice of her COBRA rights        
  • ?for the employer, since it was a new owner, and not the employer of the employee.

 

QUESTION 5

The Affordable Care Act ("ObamaCare") was written so that the basic strategy for expanding health care coverage was to increase enrollment in        

  • Medicare.        
  • Medicaid.        
  • Social Security        
  • All the above are correct answers.

   

QUESTION 6

Defined benefit pension plans:                2 points  

  • promise a specific pension benefit upon retirement        
  • are not insured through the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC)        
  • are less regulated pension plans        
  • require a specific contribution each pay period

 

QUESTION 7

Under ObamaCare (Affordable Care Act)        

  • health care plans are required to cover dependent children up to age 26 years.        
  • pre-existing conditions exclusions in health plans are prohibited.        
  • health care plans may not place a lifetime dollar benefit payable to a person.        
  • All the other answers are correct.

 

QUESTION 8

In Chapter 12 of the Walsh book (at the very end of the chapter) the author discusses wellness programs. These programs are often used as a way to keep group health insurance costs lower by improving employee health.  Which of the below statements is a correct overview of the author's views about such programs?          2 points          

  • He is a strong advocate of such programs and calls them a win-win situation.  He especially likes the fact that such wellness programs are pretty much free of any possible government laws or requirements as they are most always voluntary on the part of employees.  In short, the author sees no problems with such programs since better health can only lead to better results for everyone.        
  • The author appears to take a cautious approach to wellness programs.  He states such programs can violate HIPAA and PPACA nondiscrimination requirements since employees may be charged more for their health insurance coverage based on their health factors.  He points out that such programs, while certainly well intended, need to be carefully implemented by employers.

 

QUESTION 9

An employee would likely prefer this kind of pension plan:         

  • a hybrid plan

QUESTION 

Wells Fargo lost the case of Harrison v Wells Fargo Bank (4th Cir 2014) (Pages 465-468 Walsh text). What was the main reason the employer lost this case?        

  • Wells Fargo did not meet the "full and fair review" requirements imposed by ERISA.  In other words, Wells Fargo did not engage in proper review of Nancy Harrison's case or properly obtain the necessary medical records to have a full understanding of her situation / case.        
  • It was proven that Wells Fargo had a systematic plan to automatically deny any person's claim for benefits until at least the second appeal level.  Once a case reached a second appeal then Wells Fargo would come up with a technical reason to deny the claim of most any claimant.  Nancy Harrison was just one of many, many employees Wells Fargo had treated this way.        
  • The U.S. Department of Justice got involved in this case - which it called a scheme - and prosecuted the employer for violating federal ERISA law.  The employer was ordered to make full restitution to all the victims of this scheme (including Nancy Harrison).        
  • All the other answers are correct.

Assignment 02 – Due on 02/16/22, 11.59pm

ii) SQL Practice

Import the My Guitar Shop database into MySQL workbench using attached create_my_guitar_shop.sql file for answering these questions. The expected output file is also attached (HWK2 – Expected Output.pdf). Write the following queries in a single sql file. You must submit the .sql file named hwk02-part-ii-lastname.sql (Example hwk02-part-ii-kumar.sql) for this section.
All answers must be formatted for easy comprehension. MySQL Workbench has a format command (Edit -> Format -> Beautify Query).


1. Write a SELECT statement that returns four columns from the Products table: product_code, product_name, list_price, and discount_percent. Then, run this statement to make sure it works correctly.

Add an ORDER BY clause to this statement that sorts the result set by list price in descending sequence. Then, run this statement again to make sure it works correctly. This is a good way to build and test a statement, one clause at a time.

Only submit the final query including the ORDER BY clause.


2. Write a SELECT statement that returns one column from the Customers table named full_name that joins the last_name and first_name columns.

Format this column with the last name, a comma, a space, and the first

name like this: Doe, John

Sort the result set by last name in ascending sequence.

Return only the customers whose last name begins with letters from M to Z.

NOTE: When comparing strings of characters, ‘M’ comes before any string of characters that begins with ‘M’. For example, ‘M’ comes before ‘Murach’.


3. Write a SELECT statement that returns these columns from the Products table:

product_name       The product_name column
list_price               The list_price column
date_added           The date_added column

Return only the rows with a list price that’s greater than 500 and less than 2000.

Sort the result set in descending sequence by the date_added column.


4. Write a SELECT statement that returns these columns from the Orders table:

order_id         The order_id column
order_date     The order_date column
ship_date       The ship_date column

Return only the rows where the ship_date column contains a null value. (Hint: use IS NULL)


5. Write a SELECT statement that joins the Categories table to the Products table and returns these columns: category_name, product_name, list_price.

Sort the result set by category_name and then by product_name in ascending sequence.


6. Write a SELECT statement that joins the Customers table to the Addresses table and returns these columns: first_name, last_name, line1, city, state, zip_code.

Return one row for each customer, but only return addresses that are the shipping address for a customer.


7. Write a SELECT statement that joins the Customers, Orders, Order_Items, and Products tables. This statement should return these columns: last_name, first_name, order_date, product_name, item_price, discount_amount, and quantity.

Must use aliases for the tables to get full credit. Sort the final result set by last_name, order_date, and product_name.
