Policy on Late Assignments

  1. Exams must be taken during the exam window.
  2. Quizzes have a deadline, and a hard cutoff.
  3. Workbooks may be turned in late, but late workbooks cannot earn bonus points and lateness may be penalized.

Please turn things in on time. We have strict late policies in class because:

  1. we want you to keep up with the work (if you miss something, you need to move on to the next)
  2. we want to be able to give out answers and example solutions
  3. for surveys and quizzes, we need the results to plan classes
  4. it is difficult to coordinate grading late assignments

All deadlines are for a specific day. If it’s 12:01am Tuesday, then it is not Monday.

Assignments, surveys and exams cannot be made up. If you miss it, you’ve missed it. If you have a medical or personal issue, we can make alternative arrangements.

For each exam, there will be specific instructions with the times that you may take it. In general, these are the class periods. You will not have to take exams outside of class periods. (see Exams)

Surveys are due on Fridays, however, you may turn them in “late” until the cutoff (Sunday). You will get full credit for turning in the quiz before the cutoff, however, we may consider timeliness as part of your participation score.

Late Policy for Workbooks

Workbooks are due on Monday, Madison time. If it’s 12:01 Tuesday, then it’s not Monday. Remember, that you need to push your repository to GitHub for us to get it, and that the workbook quiz must be completed to signal us that the workbook is ready for grading.

Workbooks will be collected from GitHub sometime after the Monday deadline (following the Friday). Probably early Tuesday morning. So be sure to turn things in on (or before) Monday in order to have them graded.

Workbook 12 will have a different and specific late policy because of the need to grade it before the end of the semester.

You may turn in workbooks up to one week late. Late workbooks cannot earn bonus points. If you are late on one or two workbooks, there will be no penalty. If you are late on many workbooks, we may deduct a penalty from your overall workbook grade (the one computed by averaging).

Remember that filling out the Canvas quiz that for the Workbook is part of turning it in. We will only grade assignments for which the Canvas quiz has been completed.

If the quiz is completed before the deadline, we will assume that the assignment is complete before the deadline and will clone it at the deadline. There is no opportunity to change your mind and turn the assignment in late.

For late assignments, we will use the quiz as a signal that there is an assignment to grade. Submit the quiz after you have submitted the workbook (via pushing it to the repository).

If you submit the workbook on time (which includes the quiz), you can update it up until the deadline. However, you cannot update it after the deadline.

If you are submitting the workbook late, you must do the quiz after you have pushed your work. You cannot update it after you submit the quiz.
