TDDE16 Text Mining


For each intended learning outcome, there are one or more examination modules that assess this outcome. This page presents these modules, their specific knowledge requirements, and forms of examination in detail.

Examination modules

The course has the following examination modules:

  • LAB1 Laboratory exercises, 3 credits (U, G)
  • PRA1 Project, 3 credits (U, 3, 4, 5)

In order to pass the course, you must have a passing grade on both modules (grade G on the lab module, grade 3 or higher on the project module). Your final grade is your grade on the project module (PRA1).

When do I get my grade? For each attempted module, the examiner will make a decision about your grade within 15 working days after the module’s formal examination date. Your final grade will be set as soon as you have passed all modules.

When does a module count as attempted? A module counts as attempted when you take an examination or submit an assignment that belongs to that module.

What happens if I fail to pass a module? If you attempt but do not pass a module, your grade will be Fail. For each module, you have two additional examination attempts during the year following the course; see the section on Additional examination.

LAB1 Laboratory exercises

The lab module tests to what extent you are able to apply the methods covered in the course to pre-defined problems.

Knowledge requirements

You apply the text mining techniques covered in the course to pre-defined problems. You evaluate the performance of methods and systems with given validation methods and interpret your results with simple judgements.

Form of the examination

This module is examined by a series of lab assignments or ‘labs’, which are done in pairs. This is an explicit exception to the rules on Cheating and plagiarism. Both you and your lab partner must work and be prepared to be examined on each individual lab.

Detailed information about this module

Grade requirements

For a passing grade (G), you need a Pass on all labs.

Examination date and registration

The formal examination date for this module is the last ordinary examination date for the course, 2021-01-16. Before the first lab, you and your lab partner will have to sign up in Webreg.

Feedback

To get feedback about how well you meet the knowledge requirements for this module, you can attend the tutored lab sessions, and make sure that you submit your assignments in time for the first due date. You can also get feedback from the examiner. Book an appointment with the examiner now.

PRA1 Project

The project module tests to what extent you are able to independently apply the methods covered in the course to self-defined problems.

Knowledge requirements

You apply the text mining techniques covered in the course to self-defined problems. You evaluate the performance of methods and systems with appropriate validation methods and interpret your results with well-founded judgements.

Form of the examination

This module is examined by an individual written project report. The report is assessed based the following criteria: clarity, soundness and correctness, related work, creativeness, and substance.

Detailed information about this module

Grade requirements

Detailed grading criteria for the project report are available on the Project page.

Examination date and registration

The formal examination date for this module is the last ordinary examination date for the course, 2021-01-16. You do not need to formally register for the examination in beforehand; you can simply submit your project report.

Feedback

To get feedback about how well you meet the knowledge requirements for this module, you can book individual supervision sessions with the examiner. Book an appointment with the examiner now.

Rules for hand-in assignments

When you have completed an assignment, submit the required files through Lisam. In case you are submitting on behalf of a group, make sure to specify all members of that group.

Each assignment has two due dates: The first date is stated in the instructions for the assignment. The second due date (deadline) is the final examination date for the course session, 2021-01-16.

Why should I try to meet the first due date? If you meet the first due date, you will get formative feedback on your assignment and the chance to revise it before its final assessment after the deadline.

To meet a due date, it suffices to submit the assignment before 08:00 the first working day after that date. For example, if the due date is on a Friday, it suffices to submit the assignment before 08:00 the following Monday (assuming that this is a working day).

Cheating and plagiarism

Each piece of work that you present for examination must be entirely your own. You are not allowed to receive or give aid on an assignment unless this is explicitly permitted. The use of prohibited aids is cheating.

When using external sources (such as text or code) in work that you present for examination, you must appropriately acknowledge these sources. This also applies to materials obtained from the internet. Failure to acknowledge your sources is plagiarism.

We are required to report suspected cases of cheating and plagiarism to the University Disciplinary Board. There are no exceptions to this rule, no matter how slight the potential offense. More information on disciplinary measures

Additional examination

For each module, there are two additional examination opportunities during the year following the course session:

  • during the re-exam period for HT2 (last day: 2021-03-18)
  • during the general re-exam period after the summer break (last day: 2021-08-28)

After this you can still be examined in connection with the next course session. Note however, that the next session may feature different content, different assignments, and different examination requirements.

The following specific rules apply to the different modules:

LAB1 Laboratory exercises

To take one of the additional examinations of this module, you must submit (or re-submit) all labs that you do not already have a Pass on. The submission deadline is the last day of the relevant exam period.

When submitting an assignment for one of the additional examinations, you must follow the same instructions as for the ordinary examination. Please read about the Examination of the lab module.

If you are not registered for the most recent course session, you need to contact the examiner before submitting your labs. The last day to contact the examiner is 10 days before the relevant examination date.

PRA1 Project

To take one of the additional examinations of this module, you must submit (or re-submit) your project report. The submission deadline is the last day of the relevant exam period.

When submitting an assignment for one of the additional examinations, you must follow the same instructions as for the ordinary examination. Please read about the Examination of the project module.

If you are not registered for the most recent course session, you need to contact the examiner before submitting your report. The last day to contact the examiner is 10 days before the relevant examination date.
