Grading - this is meant as a guideline only and may
Grading is subject to change.
If you have a concern about your grade, please bring the issue
up first with a TF. You should only contact the
instructor about a grading issue if a TF has not satisfactorily
addressed your concern.
The overall percentage for class-time exams/quizzes may be
reduced and, consequently, the percentage for assignments and
the final may be increased. Grading changes will be made clear
to the class.
All assignments are to be done on an individual basis unless
If late submissions are allowed for an assignment, there
will be 10% penalty per day for late submissions. That means
you will not be able to obtain more than 90% for one day late,
80% for two days late, etc. Example: if you got 60% of an
assignment correct but you were two days late, you would
score: 60 * .8 = 48%. However, no late assignments will be
accepted after one week from due date. You must have a valid excuse to be allowed a
late submission. All grading issues must be
resolved by the last day of classes, unless the instructor has
granted permission for any extensions. Extensions may be granted
only for religious holidays and certified medical reasons.
Discussion of issues related to assignments is encouraged, but
representing the work of another student as your own is expressly
forbidden. This includes "borrowing" or "stealing"
programs/solutions or parts of them from others. Cheating will not
be tolerated under any circumstances.
See the CAS Academic
Code, in particular
regarding plagiarism and cheating on exams. Copies of the CAS
Academic Conduct Code are also available in room CAS 105. A
student suspected of violating this code will be reported to the
Academic Conduct Committee, and if found culpable, the student
will receive a grade of "F" for the course.
