This page contains instructions on setting up your class account, submitting assignments, and checking scores.
Here because you don't have a
partners.txt file? Jump to these instructions.
If you are using a named account for the class (e.g. bbrown), here are
extra steps you need to follow (for the class 'cs188', for example):
1. edit your .cshrc file to include the following three lines:
setenv MASTERDIR /home/ff/cs188
set path=(/share/b/grading/bin $path)
alias glookup /share/b/grading/bin/glookup
If you are using your named account for more than one class that uses the
grading utilities, you will have to issue the setenv and alias commands
at the command line (setenv MASTERDIR /home/ff/classname; alias glookup
/home/ff/classname/bin/arch/`uname -m`/glookup) to point the grading
utilities to the correct class master account.
Each assignment has a name in the grading system (like
p1, etc.). To submit an assignment, change to the directory containing the assignment (using cd) and type
submit <ASSIGNMENT-NAME>. For example:
A submission should consist of:
partners.txt. This file should contain a list of all participants in the submission, including the submitter. Each line should take the form:
cs188-ir,firstname.lastname@example.org,John Q. McTest
The email address given should be one that you check frequently. The grading system will communicate with you (and your partners, if any) via the emails provided, so please give an email which you will check frequently. Submit this file, even when you do an assignment alone, or the autograder will complain. Why? If we do not have an email address for you, the grading system cannot inform you if anything has gone wrong.
Upon submission, the grading system will perform a few sanity checks to ensure that your submission succeeded. We will check the following conditions:
partners.txtfile is present
If all of the above hold, you (and all others listed in
partners.txt) will receive a confirmation email within 15 minutes. If you do not receive an email, first check that your
partners.txt file is well-formed and has been submitted. If you still receive no confirmation email, then please contact us.
If the grading system encounters an error, you will receive an email explaining what went wrong. If you cannot discern the source of the problem from the error message, please contact us.
Please be careful when submitting projects. Your last submission will be the one graded. If you have a partner, the last submission from either partner's account will be graded.
submit will only grab
partners.txt and whatever file(s) we tell you to submit. However, you can submit other files if you wish.
To do this, you must say
submit gives you this prompt:
The files you have submitted are:
Is this correct? [yes/no]
submit will then ask you to name additional files.
To look up your grades run the following program from the command line:
