This course uses continuous examination. Instead of one big final exam, there will be group assignments and labs.
Assignments are done in groups of 3 students, and of course all three should participate actively in the work. Hand-ins should be either on paper using a signed cover page, or (preferrably) using signed email using a trusted key/cert. The deadlines for handins are strict. Handins give score, not G/U: thus no "komplettering"/"completions". Handins represent parts of what would have been the big final exam. See detailed instructions for handins.
Labs are done in groups of 3 students, and all three should of course participate actively in the work.
Each assignment will have a maximum score related to the amount of time you should have spent studying. The sum of your score will give your grade for each block: 50/75% for G/VG, and 50/65/80% for 3/4/5.
(Note the extra requirement for 1DT632, below.)
I recommend using secure email certificates from e.g. Thawte (see also instruction (section 1.1) and FAQ). You can use other certificates (as long as they are signed by a CA which I trust), or use PGP/GPG (in which case you must manually show me your key fingerprint, and give me information on where to download your key).
The course is split in blocks, each of which must be passed to pass the course.
If you fail a block, you will get additional assignments on the relevant subjects during the summer. Hand-out and hand-in dates will be announced later.
