Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this website is being retired effective March 15, 2020. All future updates will be moved to Canvas for online instruction as advised by the university.
Instead of a midterm exam, all students must complete a midterm group project. This guide describes the midterm presentation requirements.
Associated Assignments Midterm Presentation
All members of the midterm group must participate in the presentation of the project. It is up to the group to decide how to split the time between group members, but each person must speak for roughly equal time.
The group presentation should be 5 minutes per group member. Therefore, a 2 person group must present for 10 minutes and a 3 person group must present for 15 minutes.
The required content for this talk includes:
The presentation must discuss the group theme.
The presentation must include all of the primary visualizations (one per group member), but the visualizations do not have to be presented by its creator.
All visual aids must be properly sourced (e.g. attributed to the content creator).
See the Presentation Requirements guide for details on optional content.
The presentation grade depends on both the entire group performance and individual performance, and will be assigned individually (versus a single group grade).
Students that are not presenting are expected to be engaged audience members for every presentation, and provide speaker feedback. See the Audience Requirements for more information.
Each group must present their midterm project in class on week 9 (Tuesday 3/17 or Thursday 3/19). The presentation dates were randomly assigned using random.org/lists using id
usf-cs360-spring2020. The presentation schedule is as follows:
|Start||End||Tuesday 3/17||Thursday 3/19|
The presentations, assuming they end on time, have 5 minutes in between for written feedback and a short break.
