Extra Credit

Current Extra Credit Policy

Individual Cases
As an individual write up something useful for future students in the course. Did you find a great way to use Store for code sharing? Did you figure out a cool way to use a Notebook widget or to draw on a graphics screen? Share these tidbits with future 2340 students. Write up a nice tutorial on some aspect of the course (usually programming help). Explain how to use Hotdraw!

Team Cases
As a team analyze your project by Milestone (4-9). What worked and what did not? What would you have done different? Should be broken down by milestone and include example turn-ins for each milestone annotated with comments that would help other teams. Look at the old case pages for ideas.

Fall 2006 Extra Credit

Class/Lecture Analysis
Which lectures were useful under the new format class and which were not? Which went too fast or too slow? Which cried out for a practical exercise?

Individual Cases
As an individual write up something useful for future students in the course. This is the first time we have used Visualworks, so the topics are wide open. Did you find a great way to use Store for code sharing? Did you figure out a cool way to use a Notebook widget or to draw on a graphics screen? Share these tidbits with future 2340 students. Write up a nice tutorial on some aspect of the course (usually programming help).

Old Extra Credit Rules (Ignore for Fall 2006)

The amount of extra credit you can do is limited by your program assignment grade (see Grading Policy).

Extra credit will be accepted up until the day of the final (until the beginning of the final). From 1 to 6 points will be available toward the final grade, that is, after everything has been calculated and your quarter's grade is computed out of 100. Typically, the difference between a high B and a low A is about 0.50 point, so a point or two can be significant toward your final grade. The quality of the project will determine how many points are given, but no serious effort will earn less than a single point. "Serious" means that at least all the material that was turned in is posted AND some commentary from you (on how it went, on what you'd do differently, on what you recommend to future students). If you have ideas for other extra credit projects, feel free to make the instructor a proposal. You can ask questions about Extra Credit below.

Please don't link your extra credit here! Put them on Cases so that they're useful to others!

Potential Writing Projects
To submit a writing project, send the instructor email before the due date with the name and URL of the page(s) that you created on the Cases page.
