Grading Policy

Your learning outcomes in the mobile robots course will be evaluated based on:

  • Major Exam (20%)
  • Projects (20%)
  • Programming Assignments (20%)
  • Final exam (40%), covering the entire course. The final exam will account for 40% of your final grade.

Project/Assignment Evaluation Policy

To earn Grade you must present a demonstration of your work (project or assignment) in front of the instructor. It is important to note that each student will have an individual grade and not necessarily all group members will have the same grade. The grade will depend on the student contribution and work in the project. The instructor will ask each student individually on the project and the grade will be based on his responses and performance.

Grade Distribution will be as follows:

  • A+: Exceptional program: All requirements are well satisfied, excellent design. The program is fully working fine with no flaws.
  • A  : Very good program. Only minor issue from excellence. The program is fully working fine with no flaws.
  • B+: The minimum requirements of the project are satisfied with some added values (e.g. new features, …)
  • B : The minimum requirements of the project are satisfied with no major flaws (program is fully working).
  • C+  :The minimum requirements of the project are satisfied but there are minor some flaws (medium quality design, missing features, some functions do not work properly).
  • C  :The minimum requirements of the project are satisfied but there are several flaws to be fixed (bad design, program does not work in several cases, …).
  • D+ : The minimum requirements of the project are not satisfied, but some parts of the project are correctly implemented.
  • D  : The minimum requirements of the project are not satisfied, but some parts of the project are correctly implemented.
  • F  : Project not submitted, cheating, very poor implementation with major flaws.

Cheating Policy

Reference: extracted and modified from http://www.cse.sc.edu/~jokane/teaching/574/syl.pdf

  • Cheating (short version): Don’t.
  • Cheating (long version): Academic dishonesty undermines the educational mission of the course and reflects disrespect to your classmates and to your instructor. Therefore, you are expected to practice

the highest possible standards of academic integrity. The minimum penalty for cheating is a 0% score on the assignment. Additional, more severe penalties may be levied for repeated or egregious violations. This policy includes improper citation of sources, using another student’s work, and any other form of academic misrepresentation.
In the absence of instructions to the contrary, it is permissible to consult Internet resources to complete the assignments in this class, provided that you give adequate citations of every resource you consult. However, it is not permissible to copy code or anything else directly from the web. Representing the work of others as your own is never permissible. When in doubt, ask first.
