INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM HOMEWORK POLICY

    Grading Criteria

    Homework will be graded on a 100 point scale. You must follow the class form and programming standards on

    every homework. A project that works properly will NOT receive an A, if you fail to follow the instructions

    carefully. Small details matter on all your homework. Refer to the software standards document for all

    assignments. A general checklist for each program is as follows

    ; The program should complete each function specified in the program description

    ; Option Strict must be turned ON

    ; Your name must be shown on the VB form, on a label

    ; The program header should include, programmer name, assignment number & name, due date, and

    program description

    ; Variable names should be descriptive

    ; Comments are stated in clear plain English, not VB

    ; The entire folder with your VB project must be named Lastname_Firstname_HW#, where # is the

    homework number. Your zipped folder should be a zip file with the same naming convention with .zip.

    You will lose 5 points for each incorrect name.

    Submission

    Turn in your VB.Net homework code into BlackBoard’s Assignment Manager. See the class website for

    instructions. Note that in the past many students have “thought” they turned in their homework, but didn’t

    actually submit, or they turned in the wrong version, or they turned it in, and later decided they wanted to

    turn in another version. Please be CAREFUL when submitting your homework on blackboard. Any errors in

    submission will cause you to get a ZERO!

    Late Policy

    All homework is due at the start of the class period. No homework will be accepted later than that. Late

    submission due to any mistakes will result in a zero.

    Regrades

    If you have found any grading mistakes on the homework or exam that requires a regrade, you MUST request

    the regrade within one week after the assignment is returned.

    Team Homework

    Each team will consist of 2 members. If you fail to collaborate and contribute in your team, you will receive a

    zero for the homework.

EXAM POLICY

    General

    All exams are scheduled in advance. You must take the exam with the class you are registered in, unless you

    receive approval from your instructor. No exams will be dropped.

    Missed Exams

    There are no make-up exams. If you miss an exam, you will receive a zero, period. If you are ill, or have other

    extreme emergencies for missing an exam, you must speak with the instructor BEFORE the exam. If you

    contact the instructor after the exam has started, you are considered missing an exam.

CLASSROOM POLICY

    You are expected to participate in the class discussions by answering questions, raising issues, and making

    observations. You are also expected to turn off devices that may cause disruptions such as cell phones,

    beepers, mp3 players, etc.

COLLABORATION AND DISHONESTY

    Students are encouraged to discuss the assignments with one another and to seek help from the instructors

    and lab proctors. However, each student must complete his or her own individual homework

    . Copying another person's program (with or without their permission), or assignments independently

    collaboration with other students to the extent that the result is in fact multiple submissions of one program

    rather than independent work is subject to the University dishonest policy. By teaching this course, I have

    agreed to observe all of the faculty responsibilities described in that document. By enrolling in this class, you

    have agreed to observe the entire student responsibilities described in that document. You should refer to the

    Student Judicial Services website at http://deanofstudents.utexas.edu/sjs/.

DISABILITIES

    The University of Texas at Austin provides upon request appropriate academic accommodations for qualified

    students with disabilities. If you are entitled to special accommodations because of a disability, let me know

    immediately so arrangements will be made.

PRIVACY REGARDING TO THE USE OF BLACKBOARD

    Password-protected class site on Blackboard is available for this course. Syllabi, handouts, assignments and

    other resources are types of information that may be available within this site. Site activities may include

    exchanging e-mail, engaging in class discussions and chats, and exchanging files. In addition, class e-mail

    rosters will be a component of the sites. Students who do not want their names included in these electronic

    class rosters must restrict their directory information in the Office of the Registrar, Main Building, Room 1. For

    information on restricting directory information see: http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/catalogs/gi03-
