Your semester score is computed as the following weighted average:
Your score for this component is based on your responding to these questions.
You don't have to get every question right to earn a perfect participation score. However, you must show by your responses that you are prepared for class.
At the end of each studio session, you are cleared by a TA and your participation is automatically recorded.
You are allowed one unexcused studio absence without penalty. Any other absence drops your studio score to zero, which essentially lowers your final grade in the course by one letter.
Each module includes practice problems so you can prepare for the exams. Also, a review session will be conducted before each exam.
There is no comprehensive final exam for this course. However, the third exam will be given during the scheduled final exam period for this course.
We reserve the right to inspect your labs for style, and to refuse credit for labs do not meet the style standards for this course. In such cases you may resubmit the work as a late lab (see below).
Labs are due as posted on the course calendar and syllabus.
We realize that you are taking other courses, and that you may occasionally need more time to complete a lab. You are given a certain number of late-lab coupons as described in the late policy, and these are spent automatically when you demo a lab after its regular deadline and before its late deadline.
Once you are out of coupons, no other late labs will count toward your lab score.
Your lab score will be 100% if all labs are completed as described above.
For each lab that you do not complete as described above, 20% will be deducted from your lab score.
This table shows each extension and the number of points associated with its completion. Extensions are demonstrated like labs, with a TA evaluating both your code and its functionality.
Your percentage score for the extensions is simply the sum of the points you have received for completing extensions.
It is possible for you to earn more than 100% of extension points. Those extra points will be included in your extension score, and thus increase your overall score in the course according to the weight given extensions.Extensions can be submitted at any of the following times:
Extensions must be paced throughout the semester according to the following schedule:
- By Exam I, 1/3 of your extension points must be credited. If p is the number of extension points you have by Exam I, then the maximum extension points you can earn for the semester is 3p.
- By Exam II, 2/3 of your extension points must be credited. If q is the number of extension points you have earned by Exam II, the the maximum extension points you can earn for the semester is 3q/2.
- Subject to the above limitations, all other extension points are due on the last posted extension fest.
