They will be designed to help you understand course concepts and prepare you for the in-class quizzes and tests. Some of the tests and quizzes may involve writing short programs based on the concepts covered in lectures and in the programming assignments.
CSC 515 students will be required to research a topic related to Web Application Development, write a 10 page paper, and make a presentation to the class no later than week 10.
Attendance at Graduate Presentations
Attendance at graduate presentations is required: a percentage point will be deducted from the average used to compute your grade for each un-excused absence.
All assignments and projects must be submitted via email using your College email account.
and must have a subject that begins with
All assignments and projects should be turned in by midnight on the day due. A 10% penalty will be assessed on projects turned in late, but in general this penalty will not be levied if the assignment is turned in before I have completed grading the batch of assignments to which it belongs. No assignment/project turned in after the due date for the next assignment/project will be graded. I will make an exception to this rule for students who have been coming to see me for help, where I judge that the student is reasonably close to getting the assignment or project done.
Policy on Missed Quizzes and TestsIn-class tests and quizzes missed without a legitimate excuse cannot be made up. If you have to miss quiz or test (for some legitimate reason) please let me know at least a week before and I will make arrangements for a make up. In the event some unexpected reason beyond your control prevents you from being in class on the day of a test, contact me as soon as possible by phone or email to arrange a make up.
Ethics Policy / Academic Dishonesty.
No student should turn in for grading work that has been done by someone else, or work on which they have received help but which they do not understand. Any work turned in by a student will be considered to have been plagiarized if the student can not explain it when requested to do so by the instructor. It will also be considered to have been plagiarized if there is clear evidence that the work has been copied from another source, even if the student can explain it.
