Assignments are on a personal basis; i.e., you are expected to conduct
the assignments on your own and you will receive an individual grade
for your work. Note that you are, of course, allowed and even encouraged to help
each other learn how to program these assignments. However, the work that
you hand in must be yours; i.e.,
you as an individual are responsible for the originality and quality of the work. This means that
as a minimum, you should be able to
explain every line of code that you submit; what it does and why you
Your work will be reviewed and graded by two of your colleagues
you will review the work of two of your colleagues. The reviews will be
double-blind; i.e., you will
not know who reviewed you and you will not know who you are reviewing.
To ensure anonymity,
please 'anonymize' your code. In other words, remove from your code any
comments, variable names or other information that would allow your
reviewer to identify you. Not anonymizing your code compromises the anonymity of
In order for your code to be reviewed by others and for you to
others' code without compromising your or their code integrity, you !!!MUST!!!store your code and reviews in a predetermined folder
structure. Please take a few moments and set up the following folder structure in your
(Remember that you can map a drive to this directory with the following command
(assume the drive letter would be 'g'):
net use g: \\bus\storage\classfolders\2017_spring\ba372\<your_ONID_LOGIN>
Note that you do not need an ...\assignment_2 folder as you turn in the second homework on paper (hardcopy).
To access this storage space from outside the College of Business (COB), use SFTP
(Secure File Tranfer Protocol); i.e., work locally on your machine (outside the COB), then SFTP the files over to your
...ba372\<your_section>\<your_ONID_LOGIN> storage space. You have all been
set up with SFTP access to this space through your ONID login and password.
The only piece of software you need is a so-called 'SFTP client.' We recommend WinSCP,
which is freely available at www.winscp.net.
Where to point the SFTP client? Point it to cob-sftp.bus.oregonstate.edu.
Once logged in you will see a ...\ba372 folder.
Your personal folder is located in that ...\ba372 folder.
Use the above folders as follows:
Store your C# project in the code folder of the associated assignment.
The projects for you to review, together with the code-review spreadsheets will be automatically stored in the review_1 and review_2 folders. Review
these codes in those locations (do not confuse them up with your own codes!!).
For each review, fill out the code-review spreadsheets located
in the review_1 and review_2 folders, save them (DO NOT CHANGE THEIR NAMES OR FILE TYPES!!!) and
leave them there to be harvested by your instructor.
Upon completion of the reviews, your reviews will be copied to
your reviewee's code folder and your
colleagues' reviews of your code will be copied to your code folder.
It is your responsibility to store
materials in your ...\assignment_x\
folder in accordance with these rules. If
your code cannot be found for copying to your reviewers, or your reviews
cannot be found for copying to your reviewees, you will not receive credit
for the coding assignment.
Please note that the process laid out here depends on you complying
with the deadlines for code development and code review as stated in
the course syllabus. Therefore, we ask you
comply with these deadlines.
