Study groups are allowed but we expect students to understand and complete their own assignments and to hand in one assignment per student.
If you worked in a group, please put the names of your study group on your assignment on top.
We also expect students to not look at implementations online. Just like all other classes at Stanford, we take the student Honor Code seriously.
Referencing past solutions and/or copying others' code is not permitted, and we reserve the right to run plagiarism detection tools.
For the Final Project:
Please ask if you have any questions about the collaboration policy.
- We expect students to undertake a substantial project to research
or demonstrate spoken language processing systems.
- Projects should be done in groups of three people. Two or four person teams are acceptable
only with permission from the teaching staff.
- Teams of up to three people are allowed. Larger teams are expected to do larger projects.
- Ordinarily, all team members will receive the same grade for an assignment - though we reserve the right, in case of egregiously unequal contributions, to assign different grades to different team members. You can contact us in confidence in the event of unequal collaborations
- You may use external libraries, etc. for the final project, but you must acknowledge all such usages.
- Combining course projects with another course requires approval from the teaching staff.
- You have 5 late days, with up to 3 late days per assignment. A late day extends the deadline 24 hours.
- For project deliverables each member of the team uses a late day for each day.
- Late days may not be used for the project milestone or final project paper.
- Once you have used all late days, the penalty is 10% for each additional late day.
- Each 24 hours or part thereof that a homework is late uses up one full late day.
- If you feel you deserved a better grade on an assignment, you may submit a regrade request on Gradescope within 3 days after the grades are released.
Your request should briefly summarize why you feel the original grade was unfair.
Your TA will re-evaluate your assignment as soon as possible, and then issue a decision.
If you are still not happy, you can ask for your assignment to be regraded by an instructor.
- Note that while doing a regrade we may review your entire assigment, not just the part you bring to our attention (i.e., we may find errors in your work that we missed before).
Students with Documented Disabilities
Students who may need an academic accommodation based on the impact of a disability must initiate the request with the Office of Accessible Education (OAE). Professional staff will evaluate the request with required documentation, recommend reasonable accommodations, and prepare an Accommodation Letter for faculty dated in the current quarter in which the request is being made. Students should contact the OAE as soon as possible since timely notice is needed to coordinate accommodations. The OAE is located at 563 Salvatierra Walk (650-723-1066, http://studentaffairs.stanford.edu/oae
Credit/No credit enrollment
If you're doing the class credit/no credit then there are no special changes to the workload versus people registered for a grade. You are graded on work as usual, per standard Stanford rules. The only difference is that providing you reach a C- standard in your work, it will simply be graded as CR. (So maybe you can take it a little bit easier.)
