All assignments are considered "routine" unless your instructor specifically indicates that it is a "project." All quizzes and exams must be entirely your own work. The following summarizes these policies as they apply to this course. Consult your instructor if you need further clarification.
Exams & Quizzes: All written exams and quizzes will be closed book. Practicum exams will be given during a lab period. You may only use your paper-based notes, the official class notes from the web, or your textbook for the practicum. On all exams, quizzes, and practicums you may not receive help from anyone.
Projects: All projects MUST be submitted in order to possibly pass this class. You must do your own work in designing, implementing, and testing your projects without assistance from anyone except for your instructor or, if properly documented, the other IC211 instructor for this semester. The Department Policy Concerning Programming Projects provides detailed guidance.
Labs & Homework: Collaborative conversations with regard to
syntax and strategies for accomplishing labs and "routine"
out of class programming assignments (labs & homework) other
than projects are allowed, however design and implementation
must be the work of the individual student handing in the
final product. Thus, the actual pencil-to-paper or
fingers-to-keyboard work must be your own. Copying a file or
parts of a file from anyone is prohibited.
All assistance and collaboration must be documented, and
Midshipmen must clearly state on their assignment who they collaborated
Note: Although labs are treated as "routine" in this class, so that collaboration is allowed to the same extent as for homework, other courses in the department will treat them differently! So do not assume this is standard!
Any cheating will result in, at a minimum, a zero for the assignment, quiz, or exam in question.
Mid-semester grades for the 6-Week and 12-Week marking periods will be calculated by applying the above weights to the averages for homework, projects and exams graded up to that point. So, for example, your "Final Exam" grade component at the 12-week point would be taken as the average of the 6 and 12 week exams. Any changes to the grading policy will be announced in class and be reflected by changes in this document.
