|±10%||instructor's discretionary evaluation (e.g., for participation)|
Exceptions may be granted, at the instructor's discretion, only for documented medical conditions or other documented emergencies.
Penalties: late assignments will incur a penalty consisting of a reduction of the grade by one third of the value of the assignment per day. As a consequence, an assignment turned in more than two days late will be considered completely failed.
The term "material" here refers to ideas, words, code, or any other piece of intellectual work, including suggestions and corrections regarding the student's own work.
Using someone else's material in homeworks and/or exams may be appropriate -- indeed sometimes it is encouraged. For example, in creating software for a homework, a student may want to use external libraries, programs, code fragments, or other external software artifacts. In every such case, whether the external material is used verbatim or with modifications, the student must clearly identify the external material, and acknowledge its source. Failing to do so means committing plagiarism.
In any case in which external material is used by a student in homeworks and/or exams, the work will be evaluated based on the added value produced by that student.
Penalties: committing plagiarism on an assignment or an exam will result in failing that assignment or that exam. Penalties may be escalated in accordance with the regulations of the Faculty of Informatics.
