Grades will be determined by a combination of HW assignments, class design participation, a visualization design project, and an exam.

Summary of weight for course assignments:

Component   Weight
Class attendance/participation 5%
Pod Discussions 9%
HW Assignments 36%
Design project 30%
Summary exam 20%

Class Participation
It is expected that students will attend class live via videoconferencing, be prepared by doing the readings, and will pay attention and participate in discussions. We will have a number of interactive exercises during classes where students will turn in their work.

Homework Assignments
HW 1 - Course Survey (1%)
HW 2 - Analytic Tasks & Queries (4%)
HW 3 - Visualization Tools (7%)
HW 4 - Multivariate Data Visual Design (7%)
HW 5 - Tableau (10%)
HW 6 - Network Vis (7%)

Each HW will be graded out of 10 points. Weights toward the final grade are listed above. For each calendar day late, 10% of the total grade (i.e., one point) will be deducted from an assignment's score. A HW can be turned in up to a week late unless otherwise notified. All the HW assignment details can be found in Canvas.

Academic Integrity
All students in class are expected to follow Georgia Tech's principles of academic honor and integrity. Details about GT's policies can be found at the OSI web pages and more about our class policies on the class home page. Unless otherwise noted, all work should be strictly your own. If you have any questions about these policies, just ask your instructor.
