How you will be graded:
Game Project - 30%
This includes all phases, including your reviews of other games and your critiques of other designs.
Technical Assignments - 40%
This includes the initial programming assignment, as well as a set of assignments/mini-projects in the second half of the course.
Participation and Class Material - 30%
This includes participating in class (which means attending class and
contributing to it), keeping a good reading/class summary log, other "written" assignments (that are not part of projects), etc. Much of this is a subjective evaluation.
Note: if you are uncomfortable contributing to class verbally, you can still make contributions electronically. You can email questions about the readings that you'd like to have discussed in class, write ideas you've had or summaries of classes in your wiki page, ...
Note: there are no exams planned, so that it is your responsibility to demonstrate to the instructor and TA that you are learning the material through participation in class discussion and exercises, reading summaries, and other writings on your class Wiki.
