Homework Grading Policy
Each homework except homework #1 is assigned on Wednesday and is due
on the following Wednesday. Students can complete their assignments
either individually or in teams of two. Before the end of Wednesday,
students should meet with a tutor or a TA to "checkoff" the homework.
For this, students will meet one-on-one with a tutor or a TA and present their solution.
In case students are working in pair, they have to meet together at the
same time and demonstrate that they equally shared the work between them. Also, they
will obtain the same grade, which will be the lowest between the two.
The checkoff procedure includes explaining the problems and the implemented solution,
reviewewing and explaining the code, verify compilation, verify functionality.
Each homework will include a list of what is expected during checkoff.
The tutor or TA will file a report of this interview for each student, then TAs
and instructor will convert this into a numeric grade.
Students are also required to submit their source code to the
instructor and TAs before the "checkoff" takes place.
As students in this offering of CSE 140L, you are expected to know and abide by the UCSD Policy on Integrity of Scholarship (as described in the Student Conduct Code in the UCSD General Catalog), the Jacobs School of Engineering Student Honor Code, and the course policy described here. Please take a few moments to read and review these policies.
Homework must be completed individually or in pairs. All exams and quizzes are individual effort.
Dishonest behavior will not be tolerated during an exam.
You will be held responsible even if you plagiarize only a small
portion of someone else's work.
Furthermore, providing your work for others to copy
is also considered as academic dishonesty.
Any student violating UCSD's Academic Dishonesty or UCSD's Student Conduct policies will earn an 'F' in the course and will be reported to their college Dean for administrative processing. Committing acts that violate Student Conduct policies that result in course disruption are cause for suspension or dismissal from UCSD.
