Examination and Assignments


The final course grades are calculated as the mean of the grades for the four examination assignments. Every grade has a group part that is awarded pass or fail, and an individual part that is graded U/3/4/5. The round-to-nearest with round half up rule is applied (for example, 3.5 is rounded up to 4).

In the group parts, the grades are based on the work performed by the group, but the examination is individual. This means that individual students may receive a different grade than the rest of the group if there are reasons for that. Such reasons could for example be that the group members have different ambition levels, or if there are large differences in how much work that different group members have done. Individual supplementary examination assignments can also be given by the examiner. The group members need to tell the examiner if there are reasons for different grades in a group.

The grade U (Fail) is given if the student miss a deadline. The same assignment can be submitted at a deadline for re-submission. There are four deadlines for re-submissions, since this is the last time this course is offered. Normal is one or two such additional deadlines. Students can also try for higher grade by handing in material at the deadline for re-submissions. No assignments are graded between deadlines.

Required Attendance: Presentations are part of the examination and participation have mandatory attendance.


The following set of rules applies to the assignments in this course. It is a slightly modified version of IDA's general rules for labs.

Rules for examination:

  • The assignments are in a group or individually, according to the instructions given for the course. However, examination is always individual.
  • It is not allowed to hand in solutions copied from other students, or from elsewhere, even though modifications have been made. If unauthorized copying or other forms of cheating is suspected, the teacher is required to make a report to the University Disciplinary Board. For more information, see the LiU webpage for Disciplinary Measures.
  • You should be able to explain the details of the assignment. It is also possible that you may have to explain why you have chosen a specific solution. This applies to everyone in a group.
  • If you anticipate that you can not meet a deadline, contact your teacher. You may get some support and possibly a deadline at a later date. It is always better to discuss problems than to cheat.
  • If you do not follow the university and a course examination rules, and try to cheat, by for example plagiarizing or using unauthorized assistance, then it may result in a complaint to the University Disciplinary Board. The consequences of cheating can be a warning or suspension from studies.
  • Policy for presentation. A definite end date, deadline, generally apply to the submission of assignments in the course. This deadline may be during the course or at the end. If presentation is not done in time, you may have to do a new set of assignments the next time the course is offered.
