Handing In Projects, Assignments & Quizzes

Projects & assignments will be handed-in by uploading to Laulima under the ASSIGNMENT by the deadline indicated for the assignment.

Every project will have milestones with due dates for them.

Late projects and assignments accepted up to a week late but a 50% penalty will be imposed.

Only exception is the last milestone of the last project.No late work is accepted. Any late work gets zero points.

A lab assignment is considered late if the submission time is registered by Laulima as 1 minute past due date and time. No Exceptions.

Any lab subsequent RESUBMISSION of the assignment past the due date is considered a late submission even if the original submission was submitted on time.

Missed quizzes cannot be retaken.

To upload your project

Go to your project folder and zip everything up into a single Zip file. Make sure all sound files and images are included as well as a copy of and all other java files you wrote.

Turn in this zip file in Laulima under the Assignments folder (the same place where you downloaded the assignment in the first place).

As for the video URL, go to the Resources Folder on Laulima. You will find a subfolder for this project in which you can add your URL.

The Labs

Installing and setting up Java and Eclipse

Bring your laptop to every class and every lab

Tues: Graded Lab mini-assignment (turn in at beginning of lab for points)

Thurs: Quiz, the review of Quiz answers, then help on projects.

See "How to Compute Your Grade".

What if I Miss a Lab or Quiz?

See "How to Compute Your Grade"

How to Compute Your Grade

You will notice the points add up to 110.

Your grade maxes out at 100 points. The 10 points are free extra credit points that is given to all of you at the beginning of class that make up for missed quizzes or labs or any other random acts of life. If your final grade is on the edge of a letter grade do not ask for any extra credit work. None will be given as you already have 10 free extra points.

On Laulima if you get 100 points it is computed as 90.9% (100/110 = 90.9%) which is considered an A+. See below for full grade scale.

A+ = 100/110 = 90.9%

A = 95/110 = 86.4%

A- = 90/110 = 81.8%

B+ = 87/110 =79%

B = 83/110 = 75%

B- = 80/110 = 72.7%

C+ = 77/110 = 70%

C = 73/110 = 66.4%

C- = 70/110 = 63.6%

D+ = 67/110 = 60.9%

D = 63/110 = 57.2%

D- = 60/110 = 54.5%

F = Anything below a D-
