Project Late Submission
This policy applies to all projects assigned in the class.
There is no late homework policy - no late homework will be accepted.
The penalty for late submission is 10%
the total grade for each 24H
period your asignment is late, to a maximum of 50%. Here is how
this policy will be enforced.
Suppose an assignment is due on Friday at 12 noon. All submissions will
have a grace period of 10 min to account for delays in trasnmission,
clock differences, mistyping information etc. If your submission
timestamp is after 12:10pm but before 12 noon Saturday, your maximum
points for the assignment will be reduced to 90%. (Note that there is
no grace period during the time your assignment is late) If your
assignment timestamp is between 12:01pm Saturday and 12 noon Sunday,
your maximum points will be reduced to 80%, and so on. By Wednesday
noon, your maximum points will be reduced to 50%, and this is is the
final deadline to receive your late submission.
Note that if you lose points in your assignment, those will NOT be
scaled. In other words, suppose you submit your late assignment on
Saturday before noon, meaning you are in the 90% period. Suppose we
grade your assignment and you lose 15 points. Your final grade for the
assignment will be 75 and not 76.5. (It would be 76.5 if we calculated
your grade as follows: 90 - 0.9*15 = 76.5)
This means that your final grade may be negative! If for example, you
submit on Wednesday when your max is 50% but you lose more than 50% of
the points in the assignment. In that case we will count your grade as
zero. So think carefully before investing a lot of time on a late
assignment - it may not be worth it.
Illness, Hardship and Other Unforeseen Circumstances
If you run into any situations beyond your control and cannot submit an
assignment or you need to submit late, you must let me know before the
assignment deadline. I will deal with this on a case-by-case
basis. I will not consider excuses after the deadline, and absolutely
not after your receive your grade. Note that in case of an illness you must bring a
doctor's note. For other cases I may also ask you for documentation.
(Of course I will try to be reasonable. If you get injured during an
X-games competition and spend the night in the emergency room, I will
waive the early notification requirement)
