Assignments are due 10:00 am Monday, unless otherwise noted.
Submit Assignments through MyLearningSpace.
You must adhere to our standards when submitting your assignments. You may use whatever tools you wish to create your assignments, but it is your responsibility to meet these standards:
.pyfiles; sample output, testing, discussion, and all other non-program files must be saved in text files:
login_a n.zip. For example, if the user
barn4520submits Assignment 1, the project name should be:
barn4520_a1. Give your .zip file the same name when exporting your project. Thus with the previous example the .zip file must be named
barn4520_a1.zip. Use only Eclipse's built-in archive capability to create these .zip files. No other format is accepted. Refer to the appropriate tutorial on how to create an archive file from Eclipse.
.txtextension on these files. Put all non-implementation (i.e. testing) answers into a single file named
testing.txt. Create these files in Eclipse.
Take the time to adhere to these standards. Don't wait until five minutes before the due date to try and make your program work on the WLU network, or to convert your text from Electric Pencil 5.2 to ASCII.
We strongly suggest you keep back up copies of your assignments on a network drive or memory stick. You are responsible for the back up of your course material.
After marking your assignments your marker posts your mark and comments on MyLearningSpace. Markers have two weeks after the assignment submission to return your marked assignment to you.
You may request a reassessment of your assignments by specifying the reasons for such request in writing. The assignment are completely reassessed and the reassessment may result in raising or lowering of your marks.
If you have problems, get help before the assignment is due.
Our markers spend a fair amount of time with students discussing assignment issues involving only one or two marks. Because the impact of the number of marks involved in these discussions is so insignificant, we would like to reduce this time. In order to do this we are adding Benefit of the Doubt (BD) Marks to assignment marks. The way these marks work is this:
When your assignment is graded, these marks are added to the final assignment grade. (For example, an assignment worth 30 marks may have 2 BD marks). If you bring your assignment back to your marker for remarking, these marks are removed from the final assignment grade. Thus, it is not worth bringing your assignment to your marker's attention for only 1 or 2 marks as the final assignment grade is unchanged (or lowered!). The only exception is simple addition errors which corrected by your marker without affecting the BD marks.
Please bring your questions to your marker's attention within one week of getting your marks back. Any later and no changes can be made.
