# Tik-79.240 Special Course on Computational Complexity

## Course grades

The grade of the course is determined by the points earned from the home
assignments and there is no final exam. Each assignment is graded with the
scale 0-2 and the grade of the course is determined according to the
following table.
Grade / Lower bound (from Max points)

1 / 26 p. (50 %)

2 / 29.5 p. (57 %)

3 / 33.5 p. (64 %)

4 / 37 p. (71 %)

5 / 40.5 p. (78 %)

where Max points are 52.

The Max points are based on 26 home assignments which was estimated to
provide a rough balance between the workload required by the course and the
credits for the course (3 cr).
This means that these regular home assignments are those for the
presentations until Nov 24: there are 28 regular assignments given by
Nov 24 and at least 26 assignments have been available for each student
(one cannot get points from an assignment related to one's own talk).

The rest of the assignments (one in the beginning and the
assignments from talks on Nov 26 and Dec 1) are BONUS assignments that
do not raise Max points but the points earned from them contribute to
your total number of points. Hence, there are 7 such bonus assignments.

In addition, 5 EXTRA BONUS assignments will be provided which do not
affect Max points but can increase your total. However, the extra bonus
assignments are graded with the scale 0-1.5.

** DEADLINE FOR ALL BONUS ASSIGNMENTS IS JAN 15, 1999. THIS IS A HARD
NON-NEGOTIABLE DEADLINE. **

Please return your assignments to the
assistant Tommi Junttila by Jan 15, 1999. The normal bonus assignments
will be graded by the corresponding speaker in one week after the
deadline and the extra bonus assignments by the teacher.
