Response to 2014/15 survey feedback.
Here is a general comments on question 6:
- course lecture too fast: thank you for the feedback, I will definitively slow down the rhythm for this upcoming semester
- challenging coursework: yes the coursework is challenging and definitively requires to be confident with Java programming skills. This year the coursework will count for 100% of the final mark and there will be no exam.
- coursework specification very bare: the coursework has been revamped this year with a new more detailed specification
- coursework marking and feedback: the grade obtained for the coursework is a simple function of the number of programs that can be compiled correctly by the compiler. Students were all invited to come to my office to receive direct feedback (only one student took the offer last year).
