Knowledge Assessment:


Projects
  • There will be 5 projects.
  • The first project must be done individually.
  • The second project may be done in pairs with pair programming. One solution will be turned in for the pair.
  • Both students will receive bonus pts, if they vouch for the fact that they worked on the project together for more than 75% of the time.
  • Bonus pts will not increase the total score beyond the max score.
  • The reminaing projects must be done in a group, also with pair programming. One solution will be turned in for the group.
  • A project that does not produce the correct output from the provided input within the specification will count as zero.
  • Projects must run in the CS Labs and on Travis CI.
  • For every day that a project is late, one-fifth of the points will be lost, so that in five days it will be worth zero. Corrupt or incomplete submissions will count as one day late. You must e-mail the grader when submitting late or re-submitted projects.
  • Projects will first be graded without regard to penalties or bonuses. After that grade is determined, penalties will be subtracted and bonuses will be added, up to the max score.
  • The solution to the project will not be provided. The grader will grade, comment, return, and post the grade of the project within one week. The grade can only be disputed within the following one week. All grade disputes must be made in writing by e-mail to the grader with supporting evidence or arguments.

  • We may have more than one quiz per class.
  • Each quiz may cover the material of the previous class and/or the current class and the assigned readings.
  • There will be no make up quizzes for any reason.
  • The lowest 4 quizzes scores will be dropped.

  • There will be no final.
  • Tests will be closed book.
  • The solution to the test will not be provided. The grader will grade and post the grade of the test within one week. The grade can only be disputed within the following one week. All grade disputes must be made in writing by e-mail to the grader with supporting evidence or arguments.
  • The grader will not return the test, but will make it available for review during office hours. If you do not return the test, you will receive a zero.
