BTI420 Assignment – Grading information

This document describes the grading procedure for the BTI420 assignment. It also includes a link to a downloadable marking guide for the “public release” final deliverable.

Grading, Winter 2011

For the Winter 2011 version of the BTI420 programming assignment, you will earn grades for two components:

  1. Progress report
  2. Public release

.

Progress report – worth 5 marks

The “progress report”, due (for the Winter 2011 semester) on Monday, March 28, 2011, at 3:20pm ET, is worth 5 marks.

It must be a printed report, as detailed in the “specifications” document.

You will earn marks for the following:

  • Description of the app’s structural design – about 1.5 marks
  • Peer review – about 1.5 marks
  • Completion plan – about 1 mark
  • Overall feature presence – about 1 mark

.

Obviously, your work must be available on the warp web server by the due date and time.

Grades will be recorded on MySeneca, with comments/feedback where appropriate.

.

Public release – worth 25 marks

The “public release”, due on Thursday, April 7, 2011, at 4:00pm ET, is worth 25 marks.

Your work must be available on the warp web server by the due date and time.

A brief printed report must be submitted by the due date and time:

  • If you are not normally on campus on Thursdays, then you can submit a digital version of the document to your professor by email, before the due date and time.
  • Then, you can bring the printed version of the report on Friday, April 8, during the time slot for the demonstration to your professor.

Finally, on Friday, April 8, you must briefly demonstrate your work to your professor, in his office, during a 10-minute time slot. This is an opportunity to briefly show your web site’s features, including anything that you want to highlight or call out. A sign-up sheet will be available from your professor; please visit him in his office as soon as possible to reserve a time slot.

Grading procedure for your programming work

After the Friday demonstration, your professor will grade your work.

Here is a link to the document that your professor will use to record your grade for your programming assignment:

BTI420 Winter 2011 Assignment Marking Guide – Final Deliverable

.

Grading procedure for your printed report

By itself, the printed report is not worth any marks.

However, if you do not submit a report, five (5) marks will be deducted from your assignment grade. In contrast, if a report is submitted, but is poorly done, three (3) marks will be deducted from your assignment grade.

As you would expect, the report contents must be composed in a nicely-formatted word processing document. See the “marking guide” linked above for the report’s expectations.

.

Grading procedure for your demonstration to your professor

By itself, the demonstration is not worth any marks.

However, if you do not demonstrate your work, five (5) marks will be deducted from your assignment grade. In contrast, if a demonstration is held, but is poorly done, three (3) marks will be deducted from your assignment grade.

.

Reminder about the “late” policy

See the professor’s Policies to remind yourself about what happens if your work is late.

To summarize:

  • If the “progress report” is not submitted by the due date and time, it will be graded as zero (0).
  • For the “public release”, each late day will result in an ever-increasing deduction. For example, if it is one day late (i.e. by Friday, April 8, 2011, at 4:00pm ET), then it will result in a 10% deduction. If it is submitted by Monday, April 11, 2011, at 4:00pm ET, it is four days late, and will result in a 40% deduction.
  • If you do not submit a “final release”, it will be graded as zero (0). Your professor does not assign interim grades of “INC” (incomplete) in BTI420.
