CSE 260 Grading and Course Policies
Fall 2002
Scott B. Baden


Grading will be based on homework assignments, class participation, and the project. The homework assignments will be done individually, but the project may be done in teams of two or three.

Homework assignments (60%)
There will be 4 or 5 homework assignments. The assignments will vary in form: commenting on assigned readings,  working out pencil and paper designs, programming and experimentation.  Some will be more involved than others. I encourage you to discuss the  assignments with your classmates,  but be sure to think and write independently.  If you aren't sure about this, see me.  Here are some notes on technical writing .  
Project (30%)
There will be a 4 week mini research project.  You may work individually, or in a team of two or three.  I will discuss the projects around the fourth week of the quarter. If you have an idea for a research project, come see me. 
Class Participation (10%)
Class participation is an important part of your experience in the course and is also a course requirement. Be prepared to discuss in class the assigned readings and the homework assignments. You are responsible for keeping up with the assigned readings, completing the assignments on time, and checking the course web page regularly.

Academic Honesty

I expect you to do your own work. Though I don't expect there to be a problem in a graduate course, academic honesty which will be strictly enforced. Anyone found plagiarizing another's work, or making their own work available to others, will receive a 0 on the assignment in question.   You are assumed to be familiar with the Academic Honestly Policies for this course, as described in the following document: http://www.cse.ucsd.edu/~baden/Honesty.html. If you aren't sure about this policy be sure and see me.

Lateness and Grading appeals

I'll accept late assignments not later than Friday of the week the assignment is due. A penalty of 5% will be assessed for each day the assignment is late.
