The building has electricity again, but we have no network/data access. There will be a few hotspots for teacher to use to take attendance and otherwise access Illuminate, but there will be NO network or internet access for students.

Please plan accordingly - make your google drives available offline on your laptops, or at least make your project files available offline.

Snow Day Assignments

If you're working on software, the snow day shouldn't stop you if you have your software on your laptops. If you're working on hardware, then this is a great time to make all your documentation current.

Assessment Requirements for Fri 10/12

posted Oct 8, 2018, 11:49 AM by Nikhil Joshi   [ updated Oct 8, 2018, 11:50 AM ]

Every person in the class must link me to evidence of the work they have individually complete over the last 4 weeks. Evidence can be:

  • daily or weekly work logs summarizing what was completed that week. Evidence (documentation) must be presented for that completed work so I can verify it was done and assess its quality.
  • If research was done to learn new content, document that that research as a short 1-2 page paper for each topic.
  • If work items were broken down into tasks and recorded in the Gantt Chart, then every task in the Gantt chart should have at least a paragraph describing what that task encompasses or what will be documented or demonstrable when that task is completed.
  • Your work and tasks should be SMART compliant when appropriate. For example, if you'r doing background research or learning something for you project you must 
    • specify the topics that will be researched and the sources that were used
    • measure your progress by documenting what you learned in a paper or content-rich outline
    • Determine a Realistic goal for what will be accomplished
    • specify a timeline for continue work or document the timeline for tasks that are already completed, including if you were on schedule, early, or late compared to the projected schedule.

I will be assessing you against the engineering standards specified on the Syllabus page.  Submit your work on a Trello list titled "To Grade on Fri 10/12" with cards for each person that contain links or other attachments to your assessment documents and/or other evidence of work.

Here are the ideas everyone pitched on 9/12.  See if you can find commonalities, overlaps, and/or synergy between projects. With 13 students we should try to get to 3 or 4 projects for the year.
