Each student has to submit a report or give a talk on each of five topics, based on the practices in each class. Your overall course grade will be determined as the average grade for the five reports or talks. More precisely, Small Report and Presentation at Each Class (60%), Active Engagement of Class Discussion 40% Reports will be evaluated in terms of the level of understanding of each class. The level of understanding of class 1 (e.g., Documentation 1) will be evaluated in the conversation question in each of class 2 (e.g., Documentation 2), too. To acquire the credits, the students should submit all the reports, give all the presentations and be scored more than 60 points out of 100 points in total.
