  • Project. This can be done alone or in group. There are several alternatives:

    OR
This should be included in your talk and report:
- introduction - describe the area/problem, motivate why is this interesting, what kind of solutions have been used before
- background - any background knowledge that is needed to read the report/undertand the talk (e.g. domain of the application)
- algorithms - describe the algorithms that were used (why were these chosen?)
- test: describe the test data and the test set-up
- test results: describe the results
- discussion: analyze the results, compare with what was done before
- future: ideas for how to improve? other things that could be done?

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 details 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.
