Final exam grades

Please do not, under any circumstances, email us asking what the curve is for the course (or the exam). We plan to submit overall grades tomorrow afternoon. The final exam grades, though, have just been released. The mean (and median) score was 79 (out of 125), with a standard deviation of 17.

Chess server grades released

The grades for your performance on the chess server are now released. Refer to the assignment documentation for the grading rubric. For computing the extra credit points, only students from this semester were considered, and only the best bot was considered from each partnership. If there is an error in the scoring, please let Jeff know by Tuesday at the very latest.

Cheat sheet policy

The cheat sheet policy for the final will be the same as the midterm (one 8.5 x 11 sheet of notes, double-sided).

Office Hour Cancelled

I have to cancelled my office hour today due to an unexpected incident. Feel free to ask any question by email. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

Office hour changes next week

I've just moved my office hours next week to Saturday, May 9, 1PM to 3PM. Expect other TAs to make similar office hour changes so that there are many office hour opportunities before the final.
