Due: Every week on Saturday from October 10th, 2015 to November 28th, 2015, by 11:59PM UTC-12 (Anywhere on Earth).
To help the mentors monitor your progress on your project, you'll submit weekly status checks. These status checks will ask four simple questions:
Each question can generally be answered in only a sentence or two unless there is a more significant answer. It is crucial that you be honest in these status checks, however. If we observe that your progress is slow early on, we can adjust expectations. However, if we discover later that your final project will differ because of a discrepancy between your plan and your progress that you did not disclose when it arose, we likely will not be as understanding.
You will submit these status checks via the Tests & Quizzes module on T-Square. Each week, one status check form will be visible. It will disappear on the due date. You can find the submission page by going to T-Square, clicking CS6460, clicking Tests & Quizzes, and then clicking the status check to fill out for that week.
To jump straight to these status checks, here are direct links. Note that these links will only work while that week's status check is open; a new check will come available each Sunday morning:
Late work is not accepted without advanced agreement except in cases of medical or family emergencies. In the case of an emergency, please contact the Dean of Students.
Your assignment will be evaluated on the extent to which it follows the directions and achieves the learning goal on a simple rubric: Does Not Meet Expectations, Meets Expectations, and Exceeds Expectations. Any assignments graded as Does Not Meet Expectations will have the opportunity to revise and resubmit once.
