Övriga krav för slutbetyg

The examination of this course is based on the quality of project specific deliverables and individual contributions. The grading process will involve the teachers and the teaching assistants. ?The students will be graded in two dimensions:
The quality of the project related deliverables described above
Individual contribution to the learning in the course, i.e., active participation during seminars and on the course-web.
The deliverables from each project team include
a team-based project presented as a written report and/or website, and an oral presentation;
an opposition on another team's project; hosting of a seminar, including preparation and summary of the seminar.
Deadline: All deliverables must be submitted no later than 15 May, 2008. Not keeping the deadlines is considered as serious in this course! If the deliverables for any reason would be posted late, the grade will be affected. You must post the report on your course project web site. Downloadable documents should be submitted in either ASCII, PostScript or PDF (MS word files will not be accepted).
Important rules for references: You must inform the reader about the source(s) of all information that you quote or refer to, and where to find it. Copying text without giving a proper reference is not acceptable and will lead to that you will fail the course and be tried for cheating. There are several ways to quote and refer properly, e.g. to add the information in footnotes at the bottom of the corresponding page, or by referring to a list of references at the end of the report. For more information about how to handle references, check these guidelines, in particular the sections concerning ''References'' and ''The best way to fail ...''!
