In this course we use something we call grace days.
A grace day allows you to submit an assignment up to 24h late without any penalty.
Every further 24h you submit late consumes another grace day.
Since this class has individual assignments and a group project, there are two different types of grace days:
- Each student gets a total of 2 assignment-grace-days for assignments A1 through A3
- Each group gets a total of 3 milestone-grace-days for milestones M1 through M4
Grace days for assignments and milestones are separate and can not be mixed.
Other than that, you can distribute your grace days however you like.
You can either use all your respective grace days for one assignment/milestone or you can use one grace day for one assignment/milestone and another grace day for another one.
Please note that you can not use grace days to postpone presentations.
Grace days can only be used for either assignments or milestones, but not for presentations!
Once you have used up all your grace days you have to submit before the deadline,
as further late submissions will not be accepted → NO points will be awarded.
Grace days you don't use are lost (i.e. no bonus points, no rolling over of unused assignment-grace-days).
