Appeals must be submitted through the appeals system, not the cours mailbox (excluding grade calculation errors - in which case, see the announcement below). Appeals must be submitted within 72 hours of test publication, late appeals will not be considered.
Enjoy your summer vacation!
The components of your grade are listed under the "grader note" field in the submission system. If an error has occured in your grade calculation, please contact the course mailbox before midnight 17.08.2013. Be sure to read the grade calculation policy thoroughly before you do so (as listed on the main page). Appeals received after the 17th will not be accepted.
If the combined grade of your exam+midterm is greater or equal to 55.5 (as opposed to 56), your assignments will be taken into account while calculating your final grade. Otherwise your exam+midterm grade will be your final grade.
Final grades are rounded to the nearest integer and students with a final grade of 55 are "bumped up" to a passing grade of 56. Therefore the minimum requirement for a passing grade is a combined exam+midterm component of at least 54.5+epsilon.
The "Grader note" field in the submission system has been updated to reflect the components used in your grade calculation (exam+midterm vs. exam, assignments and midterm).
Best of luck to those attending Moed B!
Additionally, due to technical issues with the new appeal system, appeal notes on Q2a and Q3b may be incomplete, if you require clarification for the appeal decision regarding these questions, please e-mail the course mailbox with a subject line reading "Q2/Q3 Appeal clarification" and be sure to include your personal details.
Therefore you should not expect the option of the "best of both grades" while attending moed B.

Grades were calculated using the best 5 out of 6 assignments. If you were authorized an exemption from an assignment ("Ptor"), your grade will be calculated by the best 4 out of 5. If you were authorized two exemptions, your grade will be calculated by the best 3 out of 4 etc.
All assignment grades appear in the grade notes for your final assignments grade, exemptions are listed as "PTOR".

Additionally, the exams page has been updated with the exam handout, good luck.
Your final assignments grade will be published by the exam date, please make sure your grades appear correctly in the submission system. If you have received written confirmation of a "ptor", you may still have a 0 grade in the submission system, this is normal, please do not send any additional emails regarding this, as it makes our server-hamsters cry.

להבדיל משנים קודמות, החומר הזה אינו חומר רשות והוא נכלל בחומר הקורס. הבחינה עשויה לכלול שאלה בנושא זה, כמו על כל נושא אחר בקורס.
2. תרגול ההשלמה הינו גם חלק מהקורס. סטודנטים שלא ביקרו באחד מתרגולי ההשלמה בשבוע שעבר מוזמנים לתרגול ביום שני בשעה שש בניין 34 חדר 116
Your graded work is now available at the pick up area.
The graded assignments have been placed in the pick-up area at building 37.
You should attend this session only after you have attended your regular session next week (16-20/06), as it will build upon the material shown there.
Please note that this extra session covers fundamental course material, all students are expected to attend. Among other things, the topics covered by this PS are essential to solving HW assignment 6.
Please note that due to this long delay we will be very strict in enforcing the deadline.
Additional delay requests due to personal issues/academic stress will be ignored, late submissions will receive a zero grade.
Please contact the course mailbox if you have any trouble.
Note that in class I said that all capacities are 1, which simplified the example. This one is a bit more complex.
להבא, תזכרו בבקשה שברירת המחדל היא הגשה בשתים עשרה בצהריים
- Assignment submission to the course mailbox is mandatory.
- Excluding extraordinary circumstances (medical emergencies, Miluim etc.) extensions will not be granted once once the submission deadline has passed. "I was out of town"\I didn't notice the deadline" is not considered an "extraordinary circumstance".
- Late submissions will not be accepted, period. The grade for a late submission is 0.
- Digital submission to the submission system is used in case of appeals and/or lost assignments. If, due to technical difficulties, your submission to the SS is a few minutes late - we will usually accept the submission in case of appeal - though this will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
- "Digital Only" submissions (i.e. to the SS only, not the course mailbox) will not be accepted without prior authorization before the assignment deadline.
- As long as your assignment has been submitted on time in printed form - it will be graded. If your submission to the SS was unsuccessful - you may lose the right to appeal.
- No, you may not have an extension of just a few more hours/days for assignment 4 since the original deadline was already postponed by 4 days.
- If you are unable to submit an assignment due to time constraints/course workload/tests etc. please remember that you may submit 5 out of 6 homework assignments without penalty.
E-mails sent to the course mailbox/TA's covered by the above answers will not be replied to individually.
Please note that while the course staff make every effort to reply to e-mails in a timely manner, we cannot guarantee our availability outside regular working hours (i.e. 0800-1800 from Sunday to Thursday). If you require assistance from the course staff/want to receive a deadline extension - please be sure to do so a reasonable amount of time before the deadline.
Please note that assignment 5 will be published on the 29th as planned, and its submission date will not be postponed and delay requests for assignment 5 due to its proximity to assignment 4's deadline will be ignored.
Students are reminded that the HW component of the course grade is computed using the 5 best assignment grades out of 6, so you may skip the submission of an assignment without affecting your grade.
As I finished my part in the course my office hours are canceled until the end of the semester.
My e-mail availability during June will be very limited.
I'll let you know on updated office hours before your exam.
I wish you much luck in the rest of the course
Average grade (among those who took the test) was ~71.
