Some General Points

Assignment Submission Policies

You should submit homework via email to yucheng@hawaii.edu. The TA will not review, correct, or grade code before the submission date, but if you bring your work to the lab or the TA’s office, the TA will help you at these times.

The due date for assignments will be on Sunday by 11:59 pm, but this time is subject to change. Late assignments will receive zero points. If they are submitted, however, the TA will assess them for your benefit.

Please follow the following instructions when submitting assignments. Failure to do so may affect your grade.

  1. Top of your assignment:
     * Short description of program.
     * @author        Last Name, First Name
     * @assignment    ICS 211 Assignment X
     * @date          Today's Date
     * @link          For applets, include the link to your HTML
     *                page that displays your applet
     * @bugs          Short description of bugs in program
  2. Filename of your assignment:

    (Note: For example, SuzukiBubba1.java would be submitted for the first assignment if Bubba Suzuki were submitting it.)

  3. "To" field of e-mail:

    The TA's email address: yucheng@hawaii.edu. Do not send your assignment to the instructor.

  4. "Cc" field of e-mail:

    Your UH UNIX email address. That way, if the TA doesn't get your email for some reason, you have proof that it was sent.

  5. Subject of email:
    [211] assignment number

    For example: [211] assignment 1

  6. Body of email:

    Copy and paste the latest version of your program. That way, we have your program even if you forgot to attach it.

  7. Attachments:

    Attach your LastnameFirstnameX.java file. Do not submit the LastnameFirstnameX.class file or a zip file.

  8. After you send your email:

    Be sure to double-check your assignment submission by opening the email that you sent to the TA, downloading the attached program, and compiling and running the program to make sure it works and that it is the program that you intended to submit. You are responsible for sending the correct program. No excuses will be accepted.

  9. Multiple submissions:

    You may submit an assignment more than one time. Only the most recent assignment submitted before the deadline will be graded. If you cannot make the deadline, then turn in what you have before the deadline for partial credit.
