Homeworks for 17-770/46-863: Introduction to Human Computer Interaction for Technology Executives

Homework summary

(see also the Full Class Schedule)

Grading and Late Policy

No cheating:

Late Policy: Assignments are due before the beginning of class (10:30am) on the specified day. A penalty of 10 points out of 100 (one letter grade) will be immediately applied after the start time of class. An additional 10 points will be subtracted for each additional class period late.

For the Homework 4, there cannot be any late assignments--everyone must be ready to have someone else evaluate their implementation.

If you need to take the final exam early or late, arrangements should be made with the instructor at least a week in advance.

Submitting Homeworks

We prefer all homeworks (except for #0) submitted in electronic format. Please e-mail homeworks to the TA if they are less than 3 MB, otherwise, please put your files onto a CD and turn them in during class. We don't care about formats; we are fine if you use the tools you are good at and spend your time on the actual homework rather than spending time converting things.

We will try to return your graded homeworks within one week of submission.
