InfoVis Exercises SS 2018

The grade for the course is determined by a series of exercises, involving both individual work (Ex1 and the oral exam) and group work (Ex2 and Ex3). For the group work parts, each member of the group is usually given the same number of points.

To pass the course, you must achieve 50% or more of the total points for the course and also achieve at least 50% of the points in the oral exam. I do not fix an exact points-to-grade mapping until I have finished marking everything.

I will give you one opportunity to repeat the oral exam, if necessary. The results of the most recent exam replace those of an earlier exam.

The practical materials are here:

The number of points may change slightly here or there, but the rough proportions will stay the same.
