TDTS21 Advanced Networking


The course has the following examination items:



Your final grade

To pass the course you must receive a passing grade in both parts of the course (TEN1, PRA1). The final grade will primarily be based on the exam (TEN1); however, your project (PRA1) and active participation in the course can earn you bonus marks towards the exam. For a passing grade you are also expected to present research papers for the class, and participate in the discussion of these papers.

For the project (PRA1) you will be given a grade based on (i) the seminar, (ii) the final report, and (iii) to a smaller extent your feedback reports given to other groups. To pass the project you are expected to meet all deadlines and your reports should follow the specifications. When the expected standards are not satisfied, especially with regards to the final report, you may be asked to complement the report with additional work. All deadlines, including a single hard deadline for such additional improvements, are specified on the project page.

You can only obtain bonus marks towards the exam based on the status of the project at the time of the original deadline; typically not through complementing work. Such higher grade can earn you up-to 8 bonus marks for this year's original exam (June the year you do the project). Note that bonus marks are only valid for the exam this term!! (To give a reference point, a project deemed representative of a grade 3 would earn you approximately 2 bonus marks, a project deemed representative of a grade 4 will earn you approximately 4 bonus marks, and a project deemed representative of a grade 5 will earn you approximately 6-8 marks. Some intermediate bonus marks may be used to distinguish particularly strong projects from borderline projects.)

Some additional bonus marks may also be handed out to reward active class participtaion, for example. Such bonus marks typically are in the range 0-2 marks.

You cannot save bonus marks for later. Furthermore, at most 2+0 bonus marks can be used towards a grade 3 in the course, at most 4+1 bonus marks can be used towards a grade 4 in the course, and at most 8+2 bonus marks can be used towards a grade 5 in the course. (Here, in each of the above cases, the first term is based on bonus marks from the project (PRA1) and the second term is based on additional bonus marks obtained through the course.)

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.
