Study groups are allowed but we expect students to understand and complete their own assignments and to hand in one assignment per student unless otherwise specified.
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 two to three people are expected. In rare circumstances we may accept single person groups-- check with us in this situation.
- 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.
- You can use 6 late days
- A late day extends the deadline by 24 hours.
- You are allowed up to 2 late days per assignment. If you hand an assignment in after 48 hours, it will be worth at most 50%. No credit will be given to assignments handed in after 72 hours-- contact us if you think you have an extremely rare circumstance for which we should make an exception. This policy is to ensure that feedback can be given in a timely manner.
- You can use up to 2 late days on the project final report. No late days are allowed for the project poster presentations. Additional late days on the project writeup will decrease the potential score on the project by 25%.
- 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 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 participating in the class in a credit/no credit manner, you will be graded on work as usual, per standard Stanford rules. The only distinction with those taking the class for a grade is that if you obtain a C- grade or higher in the class, it will be marked as CR.
