There will be two written and two oral assignments:
In addition to these assignments, each design group must keep an organized design notebook that chronicles and archives the design process.
In order to receive a grade of at least C in this course, all of the assignments must be completed to at least a level of C work. To receive a grade higher than C, some appropriate combination of assignments must be completed to a higher level of work. There will be no D's assigned in this class. The design notebook will be inspected for completeness and organization and must meet an acceptable standard in these areas in order that a passing grade be assigned. It will not, however, be formally included in the course grade.
Allocation of assignment weights will be as follows:
Final Report (7-8)
For each assignment you will be issued a deliverables list. This serves as a checklist for the assignment so that you are aware of the requirements. Each item on the list will be assigned a grade of:
I incomplete or incorrect
In general, you can get a C on the assignment with 3 or fewer I's. To get a B, you must achieve satisfactory results for all items. An A will require at least two E's. Note that these are general guidelines. Because the numbers and difficulty of the items will vary, these guidelines may also change depending on the assignment. You will be notified of any change in the policy
You will have access to the design reports previously submitted to fulfill these mission requirements. You should not, however, assume that all information contained within them is completely correct. You must complete your own analysis to determine the validity of any information you utilize from these reports.
