Two afternoon classes are held per week, consisting of a mixture of reading group discussion, formal lectures and practical workstation work. DJ Greaves will provide personal assistance on the assessed coursework during the workstation sessions.
The coursework for this ACS module is assessed with a number of short exercises worth 5 or 10 marks each and the Easter Vacation Essay and MiniProject that counts for fifty percent of the credit.
All coursework must be submitted both in corner-stapled hardcopy and by zip file email by given deadlines. The email will contain source code and a brief report in pdf format. This form of cover sheet must be used on the top of all submissions and a member of Student Admin staff must sign and date each hardcopy submission as it is received.
It is expected that most candidates will be awarded full credit for their tickable work on first submission, but everything except for the tickable work can be resubmitted later in the term for re-assessment as desired.
