CS414DL 2009


General Information






  • Overall:
    • Read the departmental policy on cheating, incompletes and class attendance.
    • You are responsible for any announcements made by email and on RamCT.

  • Contacting instructors:
    All queries to the instructors should be sent by email to cs414dl@cs.colostate.edu or posted only on the Main discussion group. Queries posted on any other discussion group will not be monitored.

  • Format of submissions:
    • All source code for programming assignments and all written work must be submitted electronically via RamCT. When printed, written work must fit on 8.5 by 11 paper, have at least 1 inch margins all around and be printed in 10, 11, or 12 point type. All work should be single-spaced. Diagrams may be drawn by hand and then scanned, but must be neat and legible. Computer-aided drawing tools may also be used if appropriate. All work must be neat, legible, and use good English grammar. Illegible work will receive no credit. This includes work, such as scanned figures, where the print contrast or darkness are too faint. The instructor reserves the right to define what is or is not legible.
    • More specific instructions may be given for certain assignments.

  • Late policy:
    • Late work will not be accepted without prior permission. If you cannot finish the work by the deadline, contact me as soon as possible. Extensions will be granted on a case-by-case basis and are more likely when permission is sought in advance, for reasons which are unexpected and beyond your control, and which involve only a short extension. The instructor reserve the right to assign a score penalty to the late work, depending on the circumstances and degree of lateness.
    • Late penalties for design and discussion assignments are as follows:
      • Up to 12 hours late: 10% penalty
      • 12 to 24 hours late: 25% penalty
      • 24 to 48 hours late: 50% penalty
      • More than 48 hours late: No credit
    • Quizzes may not be taken or submitted after the due date.
    • If you miss an exam, you receive a score of zero.

  • Regrading:
    The instructor will be glad to re-grade work if you feel that there was a mistake in grading. Contact him as soon as possible for a re-grade. Work will be re-graded in its entirety, and may result in an increase, decrease, or no change in the grade.

    However, once we have graded an assignment, we will not allow you to re-do and re-submit it for grading.

  • Academic dishonesty:
    Academic dishonesty will be dealt with severely. The first instance of cheating will result in negative credit. The second instance will result in a failing grade and other penalties dictated by departmental and university policies.
