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 workshops and presentations: There are a few valid reasons for missing a workshop or presentation. If you realise you cannot attend your scheduled workshop or presentation, you must notify the teacher in advance, informing them why you cannot attend. Deadlines for re-submissions apply for the following tasks for missed mandatory sessions:

For workshops, you must still hand in you preparations (summary of readings). You will also have to do the same workshop work as the rest of the group, and also include a note on how you contribution can be integrated with what the group did at the workshop.

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 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.
