You can find your grades for the final exam on front desk. The min,max,mean,median scores (out of 139 points) were, 59, 124, 96, and 98 points, respectively. Your final grades for the course will be uploaded on Thursday, and released shortly thereafter. Have a nice break!

The extra credit scores for Chess have been updated on frontdesk. These scores will be released shortly later today.
Also, chess grades for the non-extra credit part should have been also updated along with all the rest of your scores for the course. Because some people did not follow the exact protocol (making groups or submitted from their partner's account) it is possible that the TAs may have misallocated points between members. If this is the case or the case of any other misgrade please let your respective TA know right away. Additionally, now would be a good time to check with your TAs if you might have missing grades for the recent assignments.
Good luck in preparing for the finals!

Since I wasn't able to hold office hours Tuesday due to a final of my own, I will be holding extra office hours on Sunday 12/18 at 2:00-4:00PM and Monday 12/19 at 6:00-8:00PM in preparation for the final on Tuesday. Those of you in my section can get your graded Chess Theory assignments, as well as any other graded items then.

The Chess Tournament pool has begun, and we suggest that you try to place your bot into the extra-credit tournament pool today. The extra-credit tournament is opt-in only and it is not compulsory that your team plays in it, but we strongly suggest your team does. Good luck!

Sorry there was some miscommunication among the course staff; the chess tournament will actually begin at midnight between Saturday and Sunday, rather than tonight, as stated in the post below. This is so that everyone who is using two late days can use both late days to prepare their bots for the tournament.

As you are busy finishing your bots,
The schedule for final handins and the competition is as follows:
In addition to your frontdesk tested version:
Submit your bot version in the new ChessBotHandin assignment at the same due date as the unittested version. The due dates for your handins remain as they were. Like always, you can use up to two late days for this assignment, if you have late days remaining. We will look for cheating. We will collect your scores at the midnight of the date you submit. You can view your current scores as well as the field of results at this page:
For the competition pool:
The competition pool will reset along with your rank at the midnight (barring unforeseen conflict with the server) between Friday and Saturday, and you will have two days to compete(you must opt in to the competition) for extra credit. At the end of the two days, if you competed, you must submit your competition bot to a new assignment which we will create(this will be the third thing you submit, although it may be the same content as your ChessBotHandin). Remember that the standard cheating policy applies and that we will check your chess bots.
