Tue May 14: Project reflection and last class

The group project is due tomorrow at 11am. Also due at 11am is your individual reflection about the project, so please don’t forget to fill that out.

Tomorrow is the last 6.031 class of the semester. We will have a brief wrap-up and summary of the course.

Tue May 14: Quiz 2 grades

Quiz 2 grades are now available on Omnivore.

You can review your graded quiz on Gradescope. You will receive an email from Gradescope with details.

Quiz 2 solutions are posted on the web site.

As with all assignments, please bring grading issues or questions to instructor office hours. Gradescope has a “regrade request” feature, but we will not be using it.

Mon Apr 29: Problem Set 4 grades

Overall ps4 grades and grade reports are now available on Omnivore.

To see your beta autograde report, go to Didit, follow the link to your psets/ps4 page, and click “beta milestone.”

Your manual grade was assigned by staff inspection of your specs, tests, implementations, thread safety docs, and your response to code reviews.

If you have questions, please see the FAQ about grading questions.

Sat Apr 27: Quiz 2 next Mon May 6

Quiz 2 will be on Monday, May 6, 11:05am-11:55am, in Walker 3rd floor gym. That’s the usual class time, but not the usual class location.

The quiz is 50 minutes long, so class will end early that day.

The quiz will cover readings 1-27, from the start of the semester through Little Languages. Any and all concepts from readings 1-27 may appear on the quiz, though you can expect more focus on topics from the second half of the class that weren’t covered by Quiz 1. Quizzes from previous semesters of 6.031 and 6.005 can be found in the quiz archive, although their content may differ from the topics we’ve discussed this semester (with greater divergence the farther back in time you go).

The quiz is on paper, so you will not need your laptop. It is closed-book, closed-notes, but you may bring a single 8.5×11″ double-sided page of notes, readable without a magnifying glass. The notes must be created by you, not anybody else, since the process of creating a crib sheet is most of the learning benefit of it.

A quiz review will be held during classtime on Fri May 3, and as always, you can visit office hours to ask quiz review questions, or post on Piazza.
