CS 4631 Intelligent Robotics and Perception Class Policies

Grading
  • Discussing and exchanging ideas is encouraged; however, (except when specifically allowed by the instructor), copying from any outside sources (e.g. fellow students, Web, etc.) is not permitted. Typically, cheating will result in failure of the class. At a minimum, a 0 is given for the assignment or test for both the copiee and copier. Each student is responsible for securing his or her work from copying. You are responsible for reading and understanding Georgia Tech's academic conduct policy.

  • All assignments must be turned in at the very beginning of class on the due dates for full credit. Assignments turned in after they have been collected but before the end of class will receive a 20% penalty. No assignments will be accepted after class on the due date.

  • Bring any grading correction requests to the instructor's attention within 2 weeks of receiving the grade or before the end of the semester, whichever comes first. After that, your grade will not be adjusted. If you find any mistake in grading, please let the instructor know. Your grade will not be lowered.

  • If you have an excusable absence from a test, your final exam grade may be counted as your missed exam grade; otherwise, you will receive a zero for the exam. The instructor reserves the right to administer a make-up exam. Barring exceptional circumstances, you must contact the instructor to explain your absence within 24 hours of a missed exam; otherwise, the absence will be considered unexcused. By default, absences will be considered unexcused. It is completely your responsibility to demonstrate that an exam absence should be excused. Talk to the instructor now if you have any foreseeable conflicts with the given exam dates.

  • Office Visit Policy - 1) You may stop by my office any time during my office hours; however, to discourage extreme procrastination, I will not answer any questions about a programming assignment the day the program is due, 2) Do not stop by my office in the hour before class 3) You may schedule a conference via email at least 24 hours in advance, and 4) Do not call me on the phone unless it is time critical and not due to procrastination.
