If you want to do the optional homework 9, which will replace your lowest scoring homework, then you’ll need to complete an online training called CITI Training for Human Research with the Learner Group set as “Students – Class Projects.” This should take roughly 30 minutes. Send your completion report to ccb@cis.upenn.edu. Chris will send you a data agreement to sign and date.

Optional Homework 9 is due on the last day of classes, but you can use up to 4 free bonus late days, and turn it in anytime before Sunday at 11:59pm.

The deadline for submitting your final report / code has been extended. It is now due on the last day of classes, but you can use up to 4 free bonus late days, and turn it in anytime before Monday.

Speech and Language Processing (3rd edition draft) by Dan Jurafsky and James H. Martin
The course will have weekly required readings.
Grading
The grading for the course will consist of:
  • 60% for weekly homework assignments
  • 15% for quizzes about the readings
  • 25% for the final project
Collaboration Policy
Unless otherwise noted, you are allowed to work in pairs on the homework assignment. Both partners will receive the same grade. The final projects will have larger groups.
Late Day Policy
Each student has five free “late days”. Homeworks can be submitted at most two days late. If you are out of late days, then you will not be able to get credit for subsequent late assignments. One “day” is defined as anytime between 1 second and 24 hours after the homework deadline. The intent of the late day policy it to allow you to take extra time due to unforseen circumstances like illnesses or family emergencies, and for forseeable interruptions like on campus interviewing and religious holidays. You do not need to ask permission to use your late days. No additional late days are granted.
