Homework Submission and Grading Policies
You can submit your homework on 3.5" floppy, CD, or by email to email@example.com. Email is probably easiest. Floppys and CDs can be given to me in class or during my office hours any day on or before the due date. I also accept printed homework, though not all assignments will be printable.
When you turn in your assignment by email, I do not reply by default. If you would like to receive a reply verifying that I got your submission, just add a line to that effect to your message--something like "Let me know when you get this" or "Please verify my assignment submission."
Early and Late Submission
Assignments are due at 11:59pm, uhunix time, on the date due.
You can turn in your assignments early for extra credit. You will get +5% of your grade for each full 24 hours early that you submit your assignment. The maximum bonus per assignment is +10%, or two full days early. (Example: An assignment is due at 11:59pm on the 5th. If you turn it in at 10:18pm on the 4th, you will get +5%. If you only get a grade of 50% on your assignment, your final grade will be 52.5%, since 5% of 50 is 2.5.)
Because I am chronically late myself, I will accept late assignments for up to one week after the due date. There will be the following deductions:
Unlike bonuses for early submission, deductions for lateness are of the total possible score, not your score. (Example: An assignment is due at 11:59pm on the 5th. If you turn it in at 3:03am on the 6th, it is one day late: -10%. If you only get a grade of 50% on your assignment, your final grade will be 40%, since 50 minus 10 is 40.)
You can resubmit an assignment at any time before the final cut off date. Be warned that I will only look at the last version you submit though. You may want to consider whether the increased quality of the work will outweigh the penalty of turning in it late.
Bonus points in excess of 100% on one assignment will help make up for deficiencies on other assignments. However, greater than a 100% overall homework grade will equal 100%.
