Revised final report (Electronic File)
- Your final grade will be letter-based (A+, A, A-,
- Percentage-wise, your final grade will comprise
of 40% homework, 30% quizzes, 30% final project, and 3% in-class
participation (total = 103%)
- Four homework assignments will consist of
paper-based exercises and computer-based problems.
- Three quizzes will be given in class.
- Final project will be letter-graded, based on
combined performance of the final report (20%) and individual efforts
- Evaluation of in-class participation will be
based on your attendance and engagement in group discussion as well
as the instructor's overall impression.
- The following steps determine your final grade:
- Your 4 homework grades will be averaged. ---
- Your 3 quizzes will be averaged. ---(B)
- Your final-project grades will
also be converted to numeric grade for the sake of
weighted summation. ---(C)
- Your in-class participation will be given
according to attendance record and instructor's subjective
evaluation. --- (D)
- Then, a raw grade will be calculated based on
the percentage described in Item 2 (40%, 30%, 30%, 3%).
- The raw grades
of the entire class will be ranked.
- Your final grade will be determined according to
your rank, instead of direct numeric-to-letter
conversion. A student with a higher rank will receive a grade no
worse than that a student with a lower rank receives. The grade boundaries will be solely determined by the teaching
team after the ranking is calculated.
- [Tentative] Your final
grade will be available on
Jun. 21, contingent upon your
compliance to a tight final-project schedule from June 6 to 20.
You are free to
choose any topic related to signal processing for your final
project, although we will make a few recommendations.
All projects need to be team work. All teams should have no more than
4 members. 2 or 3 will be ideal. A bigger team
will be anticipated to accomplish more; your grade will be evaluated
proposal, a final-report
(hard copy), and a
revised final report (e-copy) will be due in the 11th, 16th, and
the 18th week respectively. Based on the manuscript, up to 10 teams
will be selected for
final presentation. Whether or not
your project is selected for presentation, you are required to
consider reviewers' comments, revise your report, and turn in its
final version by Sunday
- Final presentation competition: A final
presentation competition will be held in the format of a
mini-symposium. Up to 10
teams will be selected to give a 10-minute presentation on June
in class. All enrolling students are invited to be judges.
Four prizes will be given.
