Grading Policy:

Each team will be assigned a team grade for the overall accomplishments, effort and creativity of the design and implementation of the project, as judged through the weekly presentations, design review, and final report.

This grade may be adjusted up or down one notch (for example, a B+ going up one notch to an A-) based on the quality of the final report (comprehensiveness, English correctness) and based on the team aspects of public speaking (correct slide design, organization).

Additionally, each student's grade can be adjusted individually up or down one notch (or in extreme cases, two notches) from the team grade based on a combination of the mentor's individual evaluation, peer evaluation, completion of the ethics module, and the individual aspects of public speaking (clarity, pacing, eye contact, facing audience, etc.)


  • Each student is expected to spend at least 8 hours per week for the project

  • Contact the mentor during Week 1 and establish the Statement of Work (SOW)

  • Give a team presentation every other week using PowerPoint and send a copy of the presentation to the TA who will post it on the web

  • 6th week - Design Review (30-minute review for each team)

  • 10th week – Rehearsal for Final Presentation
