CPSC 433: Artificial Intelligence - Assessment
The University policy on grading and related matters is described in the university calendar.
The course will have a Registrar's scheduled final examination and a midterm exam. These exams together constitute the exam component of the course and there is also an assignment component. Both components have to be passed in order to pass the course.
The final grade will be calculated using the grade point equivalents of the individual grades achieved weighted by the percentages given later on this page. To get the final letter grade for the course, the weighted sum is converted back using the official University grade point equivalents. In order to deal with the grade A+ that unfortunately does not scale in the grade point equivalents, the following rule will apply: an A+ as final letter grade will be awarded to every student who has an A in both exams and in both components of the assignment component.
The assignment component
For a detailed description of what you have to do, please refer to the assignment page. The following table describes the percentage with which the individual task grades will be weighted in the final grade for the course.
So, the assignment component accounts for 50 percent of your mark. Please note that both grades above are achieved by your team!
The exam component
As already described, we follow the usual midterm-final-scheme for exams. The weighting of the grades you achieve in these two exams is as follows:
Remember, you have to pass this component to pass the course. For example, this means that a D in the midterm and an F in the final is not sufficient!
