The grade that you will obtain at the end of this class is based on your performance in the programming assignments. Your answers to the in-video quizzes are not taken into account for the final grade.
You can re-submit every assignment up to five times. The first five attempts will have no re-submission penalty, however the sixth and later submission attempts will earn zero credit. Only the best of your submissions will be considered: the grade of each assignment is the grade of your best submission for that assignment.
For every assignment there is a soft deadline and a hard deadline.
You can only achieve the maximal score if you submit before the soft deadline. After that, a penalty of 20% will be applied for each day that has passed since the soft deadline. For instance, if you submit two days after the soft deadline, you can only achieve 60% of the maximal score. If you are 5 days late you will not obtain any points.
The hard deadline is defined to be 5 days after the soft deadline: no more submissions are accepted once the hard deadline has passed.
Please be careful about time zones: make sure you don't miss a deadline by forgetting to convert the time of the deadline to your local time zone. If you set your local time zone in your Coursera profile, all deadlines will be shown in your local time zone.
