Grading and workload
Marks from 0 to 10 will evaluate the following activities:
Semester activity (weight in final mark: 60% )
  - Labs and lectures attendance (weight:10%)
  - Lab activity+homework (weight: 20 %)
  - 2 Tests (weights: 15%+15%)
Final verification (weight in final mark: 40% )

1. Laboratory attendance
- Attending the labs is not optional: 12 lab sessions should be attended in order to have the total possible attendance points (You can miss two lab sessions without losing points)

2. Homework
- Every week a pre-lab assignment for the following week's lab will be posted on the web.
- The students are expected to work the pre-lab exercises by themselves as homework before the next lab. All homework should be completed before the lab and ready to be defended during the lab.

3. Tests
Two tests are scheduled during the semester. Test grading has an important weight in the final mark.
Note. If sincere effort was made during regular scheduled lab, in order to obtain a better final grade, one missed or poorly done test could be redone.

4. Final examination
The final examination consists of a closed-book multiple-choice test with theoretical questions and an open-book, hands-on development of a comprehensive Java program with I/O operations and inheritance relationships between classes.

A mark less than 5 at the final verification, whether other marks are, obstacles the exam passing.


Laboratory Schedule of Topics and Homework
The lab assignments will require knowledge of materials covered by the course lectures. Topic and homework assignment for the next week will be released before or during the weekend.
