Semester Grades out of 60
Kindly review the Embedded Systems Lab totals out of 60. Please check your grades and make sure they are correct for the quiz and the mid-term exam. The project totals include the bonus for those of you who submitted one. The “F” grade is for totals lower than 45 out of 100.
Most of you have lost project marks on the report; the majority of you don’t know the basic skills of writing a technical report. Most of you did not adhere to the report requirements as laid down in the grading sheet.
I shall be in my office at 12:00 P.M on Monday, August 5th, 2019 before the final exam for those of you who would like to check their project reports or revise their grades.

Reserve your project discussion slot
The Embedded Systems Lab final project discussions will take place on Wednesday, the 31st July 2019. Each discussion will take no more than 30 minutes. You should reserve your discussion slot using the following link ” Project Discussion Reservation Sheet”. You should be there on time! Your H/W circuit must be ready by the time you present your project. You MUST submit your codes and your project report by 3:00 P.M. on the same day of discussion. You must send your codes and reports by email to Dr. Suyyagh. Late submissions after 3:00 P.M. will automatically get a zero.
Project Discussion Grading Sheets
These are the draft versions of the project and project report grading sheets. There are two versions, one for groups that have two or more students, and one for students doing the project by themselves. Make sure you check the correct grading sheet for your case.
