This is a general page about the Individual / Team Project that’s part of the CS6440 course. Individuals or Teams will have a total of 5 required project deliverables to be completed as a team or completed individually.
Sprint 1 will consists of deciding on a project – see Sprint 1 page for more details. If you are among the few who will be working together in a small group on an external or TA project, you are still required to submit your proposal individually. You can see additional details from the same Sprint 1 link above. In either scenario, you will be focusing on deciding and defining your project.
- Sprint 1 – Practicum Project Proposal – 5 point
- Sprint 2 – Design and Implementation Plan – 5 points
- Sprint 3 – Status Check #1 – 2 points
- Sprint 4 – Status Check #2 – 2 points
- Sprint 5 – Practicum Submission – 16 points
Deliverables 1-5 must include an updated Gantt chart that tracks the roles, tasks and progression of the project. Additionally, your submissions must include your Weekly Status Reports, unless otherwise stated by your TA mentor. Although, these task is considered a project management responsibility – teams will be penalized if it is not included in their deliverables, as each team member should be involved in it’s development and progression throughout the life of the project.
Teams are provided with a private GT Github Repository, hosted at github.gatech.edu to be used throughout the duration of the project. It is a requirement to use, therefore, do not store your project on a public GitHub account. IRB training may be required for some projects, please consult with your TA mentor after Week 6 to verify if your team does.
Team Evaluations & Individual Marks
Team Evaluations will open during Week 16, after all project deliverables have been submitted and hosted on Canvas. These evaluations give each individual student/teammate the opportunity to review their teammate performance on the team. Of course, the evaluations must be backed with evidence from the deliverables, updates to TA mentor and Gantt chart – for good or poor outcomes. It is worth 1 points of the overall 35 point project grade.
Individual Marks are the final score each individual obtains based on their individual contribution to the project. This is calculated by TA evaluation and the team evaluation (see above). This is worth 3 points of the overall 35 point project grade.
Below you can find a refined schedule that highlights the team deliverables and the team evaluation. You can find the full course calendar and all of the course deliverables here.
