TDDD63 Perspectives in Computer Science and Computer Engineering


The course has the following examination items:



Requirements for HT1:

There are 14 seminars (“föreläsningar”) in the 1st period of the TDDD63 course. You are expected to read the course material in the textbook before each seminar. This will be useful to you when doing quizzes associated with each seminar.

During each seminar (except the 1st and 4th), a quiz will be given sometime during the seminar. The time the quiz is given is randomly chosen for each seminar.The quiz questions will cover topics given in the current seminar and/or in the course material in the textbook. You may have your textbooks with you and use them to answer questions along with copies of the course slides which are online.

The time to answer the quiz questions will be between a minimum 5 minutes and a maximum 10 minutes. Quizzes can only be done during this time period and must be handed in directly in order to receive course credit. Each quiz must be signed with your signature and include a “personnummer”. Please also write your name in print, and clearly.

Each quiz will state what is required to pass that particular quiz. Quizzes may not be done at a later date nor handed in at a later date. To complete the quiz part of the course, you are required to pass 8 out of the 12 quizzes distributed.

If you do not pass the quiz part of the course, you will be expected to write an “original” report on one of the topics related to the course contents that we will provide for you towards the end of the first period.

The report must be a minimum of 10 pages using 11 point font with 2.5 centimeter margins. This report will be evaluated and given a pass or fail grade. If a fail grade is given, you will have to revise and submit again for a passing grade. Final deadline for the report is the end of the first exam period for the course.

The basic default is that no one should need to write a report. The quizzes are moderately easy and should not be problematic to pass for any student if one attends seminars, reads the course material and listens attentively.

WebReg is used to keep track of your grades and report them to LADOK. You must:

  1. Register for the course through the central registration system
  2. Also register yourself in the appropriate WebReg group (U1, D1A, D1B, or D1C), in order to get course credits for the quizzes!

Requirements for HT2:

This section will be updated for the Fall 2016 course.

The software project requirements are specified on the project web pages.

Rules for examination of computer lab assignments at IDA

You are expected to do lab assignments in group or individually, as instructed for a course. However, examination is always based on individual performance.

It is not allowed to hand in solutions copied from other students, or from elsewhere, even if you make changes to the solutions. If there is suspicion of such, or any other form of cheating, teachers are obliged to report it to the University Disciplinary Board.

Be prepared to answer questions about detailes in specific code and its connection to theory. You may also be asked to explain why you have chosen a specific solution. This applies to all group members.

If you foresee problems meeting a deadline, contact your teacher. You can then get some help and maybe the deadline can be set to a later date. It is always better to discuss problems, instead of, e.g., to cheat.

Any kind of academic dishonesty, such as cheating, e.g. plagiarism or use of unauthorized assistance, and failure to comply with university examination rules, may result in the filing of a complaint to the University Disciplinary Board. The potential penalties include suspension, warning.

Policy for handing in computer lab assignments at IDA

For all IDA courses having computer lab assignments there will be one deadline during or at the end of the course. If you fail to make the deadline, you must retake the, possibly new, lab course the next time the course is given.

If a course deviates from this policy, information will be given on the course web pages.
