The final grades for the retake are available here.
The "raw" grades for the retake :
Mid term only
End term only
Combined
If received some questions about the retake on January 2nd. There are three ways to do it: mid term only, end term only, combined. If you choose for mid term only, your obtained grade for the end term will remain and vice versa.
If you have to repair a lab exercise: just redo the job, taking criticism and increased insight into account. Deadline is on Friday January 5th. The submit entry will be open much earlier, but correction will be done after the deadline.
The final results are here.
NVD = niet voldaan; ND = niet deelgenomen; AANV = aanvullende opdracht;
We noticed that many people do not understand the "raadkanscorrectie" that has been applied for correction of the exams. You can find an explanation here.
The following timeslots are chosen to inspect your final exam: Thursday November 23, 13-14 and 14-15. Please send an email with subject "MSO inzage" to H.Philippi@uu.nl, with you student number, name and preferred timeslot (i.e. 13-14 or 14-15). If you do not have the possibility to pass by at the given timeslot, propose some alternatives. Place: BBG 563.
The results of the final examination (pure: without bonus and other results) are here.
More than 82% had a score of 5,5 or higher. With respect to the question about the required symbol before the Reusable pool data structure: both '-' and '#' were regarded to be correct. We will announce a procedure for inspection of your work.
Someone attended me that there is an inconsistency in the rules for determining the final grade. It concerns the bonus/malus for the labs. The reference on the course info page mentions the final project. The slides (series 1) mention the final examination. Because it was my fault, I have decided to apply the rule in an optimal way for you. The bonus will be added to the final exam (weight = 50%). The malus will be added to the final project (weight = 30%).
The decision about the minimum score of 4 for all three examination parts will be based on the pure grades, without bonus/malus.
Please come to Educ-Gamma for the final exam. We will use Ruppert-A only if necessary.
Students claiming extra time should act according to the standard procedure.
Due to some administrative issues, we cannot do the final exam digitally. So the exam will be on paper, but the structure of the exam will be exactly conform a digital examination: only closed questions, multiple choice.
Because the questions are MC and closed, we will cover much more topics than the example examination of 2016 does. You may expect questions about (almost) every lecture. Also questions related to the first six lectures may be present.
About recursion.
Some answers for the previous final exam.
Please note that the rules for examination require that you do not leave the examination room earlier than 30 minutes after the beginning of the exam.
Give an answer to every question. Ignore the remarks made by Remindo about scores. The final score is determined outside the Remindo system.
The final exam of last year. Please note that you can expect the same kind of questions, but the format will be different, i.e. digital. Open questions are not likely to appear.
The first group for inspection of the mid term results is invited to come to BBG 563 on Tuesday 24 October, 13:15. This concerns all students who requested inspection before today, 16:00, and who do not have an individual appointment.
A new version of lab 4 has been uploaded. There was a minor error in the previous one.
If you want to take a look at your mid term results, send an email to Hans with the subject "MSO inzage" (literally please), your student number and your name. You will receive an invitation for a date/time/place. I will create time slots for groups of about ten students.
Suppose your mid term score was below 4.0. What to do?
You can continue attending the course. In November, your final overall score will be calculated. If this score is at least 4 (or AANV), then you may do the retake. This retake is offered in three versions: mid term only, final only or combined.
About the mid term: as always with MC exams, there is a risk of interpretation issues.
I have decided that for the six requirements questions, you needed five correct ones for a full score.
Besides that, the standard rules for guess correction were applied.
I grilled some guinea pigs on the four questions concerning the Bridge pattern. There was no need
for guess correction here, but three binary questions instead of
one multiple answer question would have suited better. Two correct ones were enough for the 12 points.
In case of better scores, small bonuses were given.
For some very odd reason, Remindo does not require your student number on
the paper version of the answer sheet.
I expect that you will be able to identify yourself on the bottom of the list.
Instructions concerning "inzage" will appear soon.
The grades.
54,5% scored at least 5,5; 73% scored at least 5.0.
Mid term: data entry and first calculations are done, but ... I still have to add the submissions on paper, and I want to do a per question analysis before determining the final grades. Grades are expected to be published tomorrow.
Reminder: no classes, no labs on Thursday October 5.
No cheat sheet allowed during the exams (neither mid term nor final)
My standard rule for using your laptop during classroom sessions has not yet been implemented for this course. The rule was "if you want to use your laptop, then take place in the last eight rows in the classroom". Changing the rules during the course is not very sympathetic, but I would highly appreciate if you keep this rule, primarily for your fellow students.
Although the classes and labs are formally qualified as mandatory, you do not have to inform me/us if you are missing one for some good reason.
The first lab sessions (practicum) will be on Thursday September 14.
The first lecture will be on Monday September 11.
When there are issues with "inschrijving", do not email the teachers. They cannot help you with that. Please contact the student desk.
Always, always, always mention your student number when emailing.
