3. Grading policy
The following are extracts from the general CS1 studio webpage, along with information specific to this class (dates of quizzes, etc.).
With both the labs and quizzes, zero given for cheating cannot be dropped.
There are no makeups on quizzes or labs. You may dispute your grade within one week of receiving it (generally a week after the quiz or lab due).
Quizzes, 30%. There will be four 30 minute quizzes, to be held on 09/19, 10/03, 10/17, 10/31, from 8:00am to 8:30am. Out of these I will drop the lowest score and the remaing three quizzes contribute 10% each towards your total grade.
Labs, 25%. There will be weekly labs, posted Tuesday evening. Out of these ten labs, I will drop the lowest score and your lab grade will be the average of the top nine lab grades.
The lab in the x-th week is due Tuesday of the (x+1)-st week, 23:59:59. The submission system is automatic and it will stop accepting submission at precisely the stated time - don't wait until the last minute when the system might be overloaded and process submissions slowly!
Notice that pre-lab and post-lab activities are graded, prepare for your lab by reading the assignment before coming to the lab, complete post-lab activities before the deadline.
Project, 15%. You will program a game of your choice (must be approved by the instructor). We will finalize the projects around the fifth week.
Instructor's discretion, 5%.
