Assignments for this class may consist of exercises
related to the course material, or programs to be written.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all assignments
are individual assignments. Whereas I encourage you to
discuss the problems to be solved with classmates,
each student has to submit his or her own solution.
It is not acceptable to use somebody else's solution as
a "blueprint" or "inspiration", or to copy and paste
material from other students. In the case of programs,
all the code submitted must be written by yourself.
The use of code libraries is permitted, but you should
document their use.
All programming assignments for the course have to be
done in the CLIPS or Jess system, and they have to run on the configuration
of the lab machines used for the course (e.g. room 14-232).
It is your own responsibility if you use other development
tools, resulting in code that doesn't run on the lab
Distribution of Assignments
Usually paper copies of the assignment will be distributed in
class. Electronic versions are available on the Class pages;
follow the links below, or go through the
Class Schedule page.
Unless noted otherwise, assignments should be submitted
electronically. Follow this link for
Deadline and Late Submissions
The deadlines are specified on the assignment handout;
you can also see the planned deadlines for future
assignments on the
Class Schedule. Assignments submitted
late are subject to a 10% deduction per late day;
no late assignments will be accepted after
the solution has been distributed, or discussed
Grading and Return of Assignments
Usually I give points for assignments, not letter grades.
All the assignments for the course add up
to 100 points, which is then scaled to the contributing
factor with respect to the overall grade (e.g. 20%).
Alternatively, I may use 100 points per assignment,
with a weight factor for each individual assignment.
