Due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, 4 December.
For this final lab, you are requested to fill out two separate surveys. There is no programming required for this lab, and it should not take too long. We are very interested in student feedback, and are hoping that everybody fills out the surveys. However, we are not forcing you to do so. This lab is intended to be done from any computer.
The grade for this lab will be based on the submission of the one file, described below. Whether you fill out the surveys or not, you will get full credit on this lab if you submit the file. There is no need to edit the file.
The first survey is through the toolkit (here for CS 101 students, and here for CS 101-E students). The questions for this survey have been chosen by the University and by the Engineering school, as well as additional questions by us. We will receive the list of all the responses for this survey, as well as the list of those who submitted it. However, these lists will be separate, so we will not know who submitted which answers, which makes this survey completely anonymous. If you have already filled out the course survey via Toolkit, there is no need to do it again.
Please read this entire section through before you start filling out the survey.
As with the Toolkit survey, we are not requiring that you complete most of this survey. However, there are a few questions that you must fill out for the file to be accepted (these questions are to prevent them from being accidentally forgotten by some students, which would invalidate those answers). These questions are the names of your grad TAs, whether you ever used the online glossary, and your sex (which, incidentally, is not necessarily the same thing as your gender).
This survey consists mostly of a number of questions that we have chosen to help us evaluate the teaching assistants. In order to do this survey, you need to go through the normal submission process for this lab -- the questions on that page are the survey questions (there are a lot more of them this time, though).
In order to fill out this survey, you will need to know who your teaching assistants are. The list of teaching assistants for each section is as follows. The last person listed is the undergraduate teaching assistant. Pictures of each teaching assistant can be found here. You may want to right-click on that link, and select "open in new window".
Lastly, the all-important demotivator question! I (Prof. Bloomfield) will select the top two favorite ones and put them in my office so that I can properly demotivate my students next semester. And I'll present the top 20 or so favorite ones on the last day of class. Please select your top three favorite demotivators, the full list of which can be found here. You may want to right-click on that link, and select "open in new window".
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you fill out the survey, and it doesn't accept the submission the first time (you left out your password, etc.), it should now retain your answers (I just added this feature a few weeks ago), but if not, you can hit the back button -- this will have all your previously entered responses there, and you can change what was causing the submission problems, then re-submit the file.
To fill out the survey, you will need to submit one file: SwanSong.java. As with the previous lab files, you will have to save it (right click on the link and select "save as") before you submit it. You do not need to make any modifications to the file.
