Programming assignment policies:
Late Policy on Homeworks:
- C, C++, Java, Perl, Python and R are the only programming languages
allowed for the homework assignments.
- No third-party libraries may be used. Only the standard library
for the chosen language may be used.
- Code must compile and run on the biostat servers (Linux).
- Homeworks with programming questions are due at midnight on the due date.
- Homeworks with written questions are due at the beginning of class on the due data.
- Each student has five free late days to use during the semester.
Once these are exhausted, late homeworks will be penalized 10 points per
- Only business days are considered late days (e.g., if the HW is
due on Wednesday and you turn it in the following Monday, it is 3 days late).
- No homeworks will be accepted more than one week late.
All examinations, programming assignments, and written homeworks must
be done individually. Cheating and
plagiarism will be dealt with in accordance with University
procedures (see the
Academic Misconduct Guide for Students).
Hence, for example, code for programming assignments must not
be developed in groups, nor should code be shared. You are
encouraged to discuss with your peers, the TAs or
the instructor ideas, approaches and techniques broadly, but not at a level
of detail where specific implementation issues are described by anyone.
If you have any questions on this, please ask the instructor before you act.
