HTMLII is graded on a CR/NC (credit/no-credit) basis. For a passing grade, students are required to:
Note: Final Projects should only include HTML code that is appropriate for them; it is not necessary to use everything that we learn in class. Projects MUST be coded, by hand, from scratch; NO WYSIWYG EDITORS, no cut-and-paste, no BBEdit or HomeSite tools. Remember that the final project is an exercise, and that the only way to learn HTML is by typing it ALL out for YOURSELF.
Final projects are graded on: 1) clarity and ease of navigation, and 2) clarity of code. They should download quickly, and not be cluttered with unnecessary animation or multimedia elements. Projects are NOT graded on graphical content, design, or depth of content; prototype sites with filler content are acceptable. WARNING: Students caught recycling Michael's code examples in their final project will NOT receive a passing grade.
Note: Michael is highly entertained by humorous sites, and encourages your most amusing efforts! Personal, serious, corporate, or business websites are also acceptable.
