- To get 80 in lab 6 you should successfully run the grading script and implement one challenge. |
Especially, pay attention to Exercise 11---you should use interrupts to transmit or to receive packets, ideally to do both.
- To get 90 you need to implement another challenge.
- To get 100 you need to propose your own challenge (or extend an existing challenge) and implement it.
- Exceptional projects can get up to 105 points

How we grade the course
The final grade will be composed of:|
30% of quiz grade
35% of labs1-5 grade
35% of final project grade
Please note that to get 100 points for the project, you must go beyond the elementary requirement stated in the lab, and this includes all possible projects, and not only the NIC driver.
For example, in the project that implements swap support. You need to go beyond a simple implementation. For instance, implement more than one swapping algorithm and show the differences between the two algorithms to get 100 points.
