Summary of grading criteria:
Final letter grades will be based on the relative distribution of total scores and not on any preset numerical grade.
Several in-class quizzes will be given throughout the semester to help you apply the course material to short exercises and discuss the work with your instructor and GTA. All quizzes will be discussed in class. The quizzes will be individual or team-based depending on the topic being covered in the quiz. Make up quizzes will not be given unless there was an emergency situation or university related travel. Documentation will be needed in such cases.
Students will work in teams of 3 to design and implement a working system. Deliverables include requirements documents, test plans, design documents, and code. There will be two iterations during the semester. Topics include software engineering tools and information systems. Topics must be selected from the list provided by the instructor.
There are two exams (midterm and final). The midterm will be held in class during the regular class period. The final will be held during the final exam time slot.
