TDDD75 Effects-Driven Development and Human-Centred Design of Interactive Systems


Each of the three assignments is worth 2 ECTS points (hp) and they are graded on a scale from Fail to 3, 4, and 5. Assignment 1 and 2 contain both group parts with mandatory presentations (with deadline at the presentation sessions), and optional individual parts, made for possibilities to get grade 4 or 5 (handed in at the end of the course). Assignment 3 contain mandatory seminars with written summaries of the literature (handed in at the seminar), and an optional written critical literature review, made to get grade 4 or 5 (handed in at the end of the course).

An individual group member can be given supplementary examination assignments if there is a valid reason for it. Omissions, errors or low process or product quality (ie. mandatory cover page information or reference lists in reports) will cause point reductions.

The final course grades are calculated as the mean of the grades for the three assignments. The round-to-nearest with round half up rule is applied (for example, 3.5 is rounded up to 4).

Details on examination assignments can be found in the description of them at this website.

Note on mandatory seminars and presentations: There are a few valid reasons for missing a seminar. If you realise you cannot attend your scheduled seminar or presentation, you must notify the teacher in advance, informing them why you cannot attend. For seminars, you must still hand in you preparations for the seminar (summary and questions). You will also be assigned two questions that other students prepared for the seminar. Write a discussion of those two questions in about 800 words and make sure to support it with arguments from the assigned texts, using references in Harvard style. For the presentations, the supplementary task is to write a description of what you personally did in the group work, and a reflection on lessons learned from the group work (about 800 words). The supplementary tasks should be delivered to your seminar leader or supervisor. Deadlines for re-submissions apply.

Assignments are generally not assessed and graded between deadlines. There are deadlines for re-submission, and you can try for a higher grade at those deadlines. You need to contact the examiner in advance if you wish to try for higher grade. If you miss the round-up deadline you will have to make next year's assignments instead.


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.

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 assignements the next time the course is offered.
