The “Small improvements” deadline offers an opportunity to make small fixes to your essay based on the reviewing comments. These changes are optional and should be small, i.e., at most 1-2 hours of work, and should focus on obvious mistakes and oversights. The “substance” of the essays should all be in the essays at the original deadline.
Students will receive grades based on the following:
E: Team performance for each of the four essays (1-10), composed form the average of the four essays E1..E4.
C: Team performance for code contributions (1-10)
P: Team performance for video presentation (1-10)
R: Individual performance in peer reviews (-1, 0, 1): zero by default
A: Individual performance in participation (-1, 0, 1): zero by default
The team grade is the weighted average of the team activities:
T = (3*E + C + P)/5
The individual grade then is the team grade to which a bonus can be added (or subtracted) for exceptional (top/bottom X%) results.
I = T + 0.5 * (R + A)
