This is a general page about the Activity Individual Assignments that’s part of the CS6440 course. Students will have a total of 16 required activity assignments that are hosted on the INGInious Server. There are 5 additional optional activities that students can complete for additional credit that is calculated with their individual assignment score. These optional activities are also hosted on the INGInious platform.
There are 2 types of required activities – Independent and Bundled. The Independent activities are not directly connected with other activities. The Bundled activities, on the other hand, are directly connected to the other activities to which they are bundled with.
The advantage to having bundled activities, is that you don’t have to complete them all at once. In fact, you are given 2 weeks to complete the Data Standards Activities Bundle and 3 weeks to complete the FHIR Activities Bundle. You can complete those activities anytime during those time frames, but they MUST be completed before the activities in each respective bundle closes or is due.
|HealthVault||Independent||HealthVault Activity (1pt)|
|Open mHealth||Independent||Open mHealth Activity (1pt)|
|i2b2||Independent||i2b2 Activity (1pt)|
The 16 required activities are hosted on the INGInious platform. They are intended to help students inhance their individual “hands-on” skill that comes with practicing the use of the healthcare systems and tools.
Students are required to do the 16 activities and can complete the additional 5 activities by choice for extra points. The point value of each of the activities vary. You can find the value of each activity in parenthesis above.
You will be allowed a maximum 20 attempts for each activity, so use them wisely. We will capture and use your best attempt/score.
There is only 1 type of optional activities – Bundled. These activities are not required be can be completed as extra practice for extra points. These extra points will be added to the overall individual assignment grade, once successfully completed.
The advantage to having bundled activities, is that you don’t have to complete them all at once. In fact, you are given 1 week to complete the first set of optional practice activities and 5 weeks to complete the second set of optional activities. You can complete those activities anytime during those time frames, but they MUST be completed before the activities in each respective bundle closes or is due.

You will be allowed a maximum 20 attempts for each activity, so use them wisely. We will capture and use your best attempt/score. The goal is not to penalize you when you get a question wrong (at the first try), but to allow you the opportunity to think through the questions and respond appropriately. Additionally, this relieves a bit of anxiety that some may have when it comes to coding.

A Note to Students
These activities, both required and optional, are to completed individually and independent of any type of outside sources (other than the lectures). You are not allowed to collaborate with other students or people outside the class on assignments – even if you are in a study group or thinking of working with your teammates. We take this very seriously and will run a plagiarism detector on all assignments. It is dishonorable for anyone found contributing to academic misconduct, so please avoid collaborating beyond what is allowed by the Georgia Tech Academic Honor Code. Even more specifically, you must not copy solutions verbatim from online resources (e.g., from students from any semester or course).
Additionally, if you happen to get stuck on an activity reach out to the instructors via private message in Piazza. The teaching team would be more than happy to help guide you.
