Computational Argumentation 2021/2022 |
This is the course page of the master course Computational Argumentation 2021/2022. This course was formerly known as Commonsense reasoning and argumentation (INFOCR). You can only do one of these courses. The information below will be continuously updated during period 1.
The final grade of the course is determined as follows. The midterm exam counts for 30%, the final exam for 50%, while the homework assignment counts for 20%. The grades of the two exams and the homework assignment are expressed with one decimal but the final grade is rounded up to whole numbers (so without decimals). An additional requirement for passing is that both the average unrounded grade of the midterm and final exam and the grade for the homework assignment must be at least a 4.0. If this requirement is not met while yet the final grade before rounding up is 5.5 or higher, then the final grade is a 5.
To qualify for the second-chance exam:
