Date: Date: Thursday, May 4 (Finals Week) Time: Time: 1:00 pm 3:00 pm Place: Place: Lab Closed book and notes Calculators not needed / not allowed (but can use Windows Calculator) Calculator) Microcontroller boards will be supplied Restrictions
Exam is closed book and notes You must use the supplied #2 pencil Book bags must be left by the entrance Watches must be placed on counter, facing UP PDAs and cell phones must be turned off and left in your book bag HandHand-held calculators are not needed and may not be used (the Windows calculator may be used, however) Earphones/earbuds Earphones/earbuds may not be worn Caps may not be worn during the exam Makeup exams can only be scheduled under extraordinary circumstances Academic Honesty
Discussing any aspect of this exam while it is in progress will be considered cheating Attempted use of any type of electronic recording, communication, photo, and/or scanning device will be considered cheating Any attempt to cheat on the exam will result in a failing grade for the course All cases of cheating will be reported to the ECE Associate Head for Instruction and the Dean of Students A professional person does not take credit for the work of someone else! Course Outcomes (Separately) Tested
A student who successfully fulfills the course requirements will have demonstrated: 1. an ability to write programs for a microcontroller in assembly language 2. an ability to interface a microcontroller to various devices 3. an ability to effectively utilize microcontroller peripherals 4. an ability to design and implement a microcontrollermicrocontrollerbased embedded system References Provided: - CPU12 Ref Guide and S12CPU Ref Manual - 9S12 Device User Guide, Bus Interfacing App Notes - CRG, ATD, SCI, SPI, TIM, and PWM Block Users Guides Learning Outcome Assessment
Students must demonstrate basic competency in all learning outcomes to receive a passing grade For Outcomes 1-3, basic competency will be assessed 1based on a specific set of exam questions, for which a minimum score of 50% will be required Two opportunities will be provided for students to demonstrate Outcomes 1-3: (1) the primary 1assessment exams and (2) the remediation final Two opportunities will be provided for students to demonstrate Outcome 4: (1) the Embedded System Design Mini-Project, for which a minimum score of Mini50% will be required to demonstrate basic competency; and (2) the remediation programming final, for which a minimum score of 50% will be required to demonstrate basic competency NOTE: The number of remediation finals a given student will be allowed to take may be limited based on the instructor's discretion 90% to 100% A-, A, A+ Grade Determination
Bonus Exercises / Class Participation Homework (3 @ 5%, 1 @ 1%) Lab Experiments (9 @ 2.5%) Lab Notebook Evaluations (3 @ 0.5%) 80% to 90% 70% to 80% 60% to 70% < 60% B-, B, B+ C-, C, C+ D-, D, D+ F % 16.0% 22.5% 1.5% 45.0% 15.0% 100+% Primary Assessments (Outcomes 1-3 @ 15%) Embedded System Design Mini-Project (Outcome 4) Grade Determination
Calculation of Raw Weighted Percentage: RWP then "curved" (mean-shifted) with respect to (meanupper percentile of class, yielding the Normalized Weighted Percentage (NWP) Windowed Standard Deviation (WSD) for class is calculated based on statistics of "middle" 90% of class Cutoff Width Factor (CWF) is then max(WSD,10), i.e., max(WSD,10), the nominal cutoffs are 90-80-70-60 for A-B-C-D, 90-80-70Arespectively Note: There are no A/B/C/D/F "quotas"! Goal: Minimize D/F grades!! Grading Visualization (CWF=10) 30% 40% 30% 30% 40% 30% 30% 40% 30% 30% 40% 30% Borderline Cases
A "borderline" is officially defined as an NWP within 0.5% of a grade cutoff Borderline cases will not be considered until AFTER the Final Assessment Before FINAL course grades are assigned, the instructor will carefully examine all such cases to determine if the next higher grade is warranted Borderline cases will be handled using an "instructor discretion" bonus that will appear as "IDPPB" on your grade report IMPORTANT NOTE: The "next higher grade" is NOT AUTOMATICALLY GUARANTEED!! Once course grades are assigned, they are FINAL and will NOT be changed Incompletes and Conditional Failures
A grade of I will be given if a student is deficient in only one learning outcome, but has otherwise earned a grade of "C" "C or better (a grade of E will be given if the student has otherwise earned a grade of D) Deficiency in more than one learning outcome will result in a failing grade for the course The grade of I or E can be improved during the student's subsequent semester of enrollment by successfully demonstrating the deficient outcome on a Remediation Exam If the grade of I or E is not improved, it will automatically improved, revert to a failing grade Otherwise, a grade of I will be given only for cases in which there are documented medical or family emergencies that prevent a student from completing required course work by the end of the semester University Regulations stipulate that a student must be PASSING in order to qualify for a grade of I or E Separate Remediation Final for Each Outcome
