Grading and Assignments.

Grading will be based on two things:

Homework assignments and labs. These will be short homework assignments and longer lab exercises which are designed to give you experience with various aspects of text mining and text mining applications.

Project. This will involve choosing a topic of interest in this area, completing a project, and giving a 45-minute presentation on it to the class.

Teams. If you prefer you may work in pairs for all assignments. If you work as a team on a project I expect the project to be substnatially more complex, and each team member should make a separate 45-minute presentation.

Submitting Assignments:   Assignments should be submitted by emailing them to Paula.Matuszek@villanova.edu.  Text assignments can be submitted as ASCII, RTF or Word 97 documents.  If you use a more recent version of Word it's probably safest to save your file as RTF or Word 97 format, to ensure that you haven't used a feature that isn't supported by Word 97.  Assignments which include screenshots or other graphics can be sent as jpegs, gifs,  or Word 97 documents.   If for some reason you need to use some other format, check with me first to be sure I can read it.

Please be sure that your assignment has your name somewhere within the assignment, not just in the email header.  If you include attachments please be sure that each one has your name on it somewhere.

Assignment Due Dates:  Assignments are due by 4PM on the due date listed, which will normally be a class night.
