Project Wrap-Up |
Posted 8 Dec 2002 by herman
It's time to think about wrapping up
your project, which includes demonstrating
it and documenting it.
I've created a web page (which will be updated
if necessary) of what you should do:
In projappt.html is a list
of the students and their appointment times.
If there is some mistake about your appointment
time, please email to correct it. Also, if
your name isn't yet on the list, request a time
so that it can be added. The file will be
updated to reflect changes.
I've just compiled a somewhat organized
list of all the projects: projlist.html.
If you spot any errors, please send me corrections.
So far, scores have only been assigned
for the diary component of the project -
which is just 15 percent of the total.
The scores are posted in projscores.txt.
The mean diary score is 10 with a standard deviation
of 3.5. The scores are based on the following
- Did the entries show steady progress during
the semester? (Harder to know this in cases where the
number of diary entries was three or four.)
- Did the entries show some technical depth, such
as discussing protocol issues, trade-offs, detailed
design considerations, and the like?
- Was there some indication of research? Some
entries had URLs to relevant documents or resources;
some pointed to sections of the textbook.
- Did the narratives discuss technical problems
encountered during the project and how they were
Now I've got scores on all the projects (plus grading
of three paper-only projects). Next, I need to double
check these numbers before computing the cumulative
scores. Again, updated scores are in
