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.
For the Final Project:
Please ask if you have any questions about the collaboration policy.
- 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.
- Two "48-hours late submission" bonuses are available; that is, you can use a bonus to submit your HW late after at most 48 hours.
- After you use all your bonuses, you must adhere to the standard late submission policy. In this case, 25% will be deducted per day late, with zero credit if more than two days late.
- No "late submission bonus" is allowed when submitting your final project report or your project progress report.
- 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 reevaluate 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 the instructor or the head CA.
- 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).
Class participation for students will be gauged through in-class participation, Piazza participation, and interaction with the course staff during office hours. Another way to contribute to your participation grades is to actively help develop the course notes found on Github
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.)
