Policy on late assignments
I do not accept late work assigned during the lecture. If an emergency arises, contact me as soon as possible to arrange for makeup work. There is a 15% late penalty for up to 1 week after the due date with a valid excuse. ONE makeup is allowed per semester, no exceptions. If you miss an exam, for any reason, you are allowed one and only one makeup test. It is cumulative and will be given the week before final exams. Assignments are graded on completeness (ALL of the stipulated requirements), quality and effort.
Policy on attendance
- Attendance in both lecture and lab is required!
- As per USC policy, "Absence from more than 10 percent of the scheduled class sessions, whether excused or unexcused, is excessive and the instructor may choose to exact a grade penalty for such absences." (http://www.sc.edu/bulletin/ugrad/acadregs.html)
- Attendance in labs is required. You cannot sign the attendance sheet and leave before class time is over. If you do, you will be marked absent. Signing the attendance sheet and leaving early and/or signing someone else's name are both violations of the honor code.
Policy for lab work
- Late lab work is accepted up to 1 week after the posted due date and time. Late assignments will receive a 15% grade penalty.
- Using the lab when another class is in session is prohibited. You may use the lab ONLY during your scheduled lab time and during open lab hours (posted on lab doors, and on the class webpage.) A lab monitor may be available to answer questions.
- If you experience problems completing a lab assignment, seek help! Every instructor in Sumwalt 340 can (and will) help if you ask. Don't be shy.
- Lab assignments are to be saved in the designated "101Submit" folder on the X: before the deadline.
- Instructors have READ ONLY permission for information on your X: and cannot edit any of your files.
- Only assignments saved on the X: will be graded.
- You must pass the lab in order to pass the course. You cannot pass the course if you fail the lab, no matter what your grade is for everything else.
How to do well in this course
- Attend lectures and labs. Much of the material that you will be expected to know is not directly from the textbook. Topics in the textbook will be supplemented with information from other sources.
- Complete homework assignments. Quiz and test questions will be similar to or identical to homework problems.
- Seek help if needed. If you don't understand something taught in class or assigned, see me after class, or during my office hours. Don't wait until you have several chapters of material that you don't understand before coming to see me.
- Read the academic responsibility and "what every student should know" document. It can be found here: http://www.cse.sc.edu/~cmatthew/acad_response.htm
Policy for Cheating
The University of South Carolina and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering take a strong stand against cheating. Anyone caught cheating in this course will receive a grade of F and the incident will be reported, which may result in further disciplinary action. You are allowed to ask for help in the labs and on certain parts of projects and homework; but do your own work. Don't let anyone do it for you. Do not turn in someone else's work as your own or give work to another student. It could be be turned in as their work. The student that gives the work is as guilty as the student that takes the work. The University of South Carolina's Rule of Academic Responsibility states:
It is the responsibility of every student at the University of South Carolina Columbia to adhere steadfastly to truthfulness and to avoid dishonesty, fraud, or deceit of any type in connection with any academic program. Any student who violates this rule or who knowingly assists another to violate this rule shall be subject to discipline...
