LING 575 - Spoken Dialog
Homework should be submitted through the Ling 575 CollectIt.
Deadlines and Late Homework
- Credit for partial work will be given. Late assignments will be scored, but will lose 10% for each 24 period after the due date, pro-rated. No homework will be accepted more than 48 hours late, except under extraordinary circumstances.
- Incompletes can only be requested if all work has been successfully
completed up to 2 weeks before the end of the term. For additional detail,
please see the University's policy page.
- Scores for each homework assignment will be assigned on a 100 point scale.
- Scores for each critical reading assignment will be assigned on a 10 point scale.
- Grades will only be adjusted in the case of grader error, not simply to boost a low score.
- Overall course grades will be assigned using a relative grading method.
Students may work together on the homework assignments, but all of the material which is turned in for grading must be produced individually. For example, students may form study groups and work out solutions together on a whiteboard, but it would not be permissible for one student to create a computer file containing the answers and then for other students to copy that file and submit it as their own work. The goal of this policy is to encourage the use of homework as a learning aid. Credit should be given for help on the homework by identifying one's collaborators on the first page of the submitted homework assignment. Use of
a software library to complete a subcomponent of a programming assignment is
acceptable, but must be identified and credited in comments in the code.
Collaboration is expected on joint projects and writeups should include
information about the structure of the collaboration (i.e. who did what).
Copying code from the web or from classmates is plagiarism. Using other
people's code for the main algorithm in an assignment will consistute
cheating. For additional detail, please see the University's policy page.
