Structure and organization of the written exam

The exam is a closed-book sit-in exam written on campus, by each student individually, where "closed-book" means that no aids are allowed.

The exam consists of a total of eight questions that are grouped into two groups as follows:

  • Group of practical topics
      Question 1: Data modeling with an EER Diagram
      Question 2: EER diagram and Relational Schema
      Question 3: SQL
  • Group of theoretical topics
      Question 4: Functional Dependencies and Normalization
      Question 5: Data Structures
      Question 6: Transactions and Concurrency Control
      Question 7: Database Recovery
      Question 8: Query Processing

For each of the two groups of questions, you can get a maximum of 15 points (i.e., 30 points max for the complete exam). To pass the exam you need at least 7.5 points for the first group (Questions 1-3) and, additionally, at least 7.5 points for the second group (Questions 4-8).

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.
