ASSIGNMENT 2

Read this before you attempt to do your assignment!

·        You have to access your second assignment via ODTUClass. The assignment will redirect you to the IS100 assignment page. Always use ODTUClass to connect to the assignment page. Follow instructions that are given below.

·        If you have trouble with the assingment page, first check your web browser. You should use Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer and allow your pop-up settings. DO NOT USE GOOGLE CHROME OR MOZILLA FIREFOX!

·        You must do your homework only on Microsoft Office products running on Windows. Do not do your homework on Ubuntu or any other Unix platforms, otherwise, our tool may not read your homework and you may get zero points.

·        Homework files are customized for each student. (i.e. your student ID is embedded in the file that you download.) Do not share your file with others! Do not collaborate with each other! You have to do your homework by yourself. Otherwise, your submission will not be evaluated and both you and the person that you get the file from will get zero points from the assignment.

·        Do not create a new Microsoft Excel file to do your homework. After you download your homework, first UNZIP the Excel file to the desired location in your file system. Make the necessary changes within the file that you download, save the changes without changing the file name. Then upload that file with .xls or .xlsx extension.

·        Please check the file size before you try to upload the file. Ideal homework file size should not exceed 200 KB. Any submission with the file size larger than 1 MB will not be accepted by the system.

·        Deadline for Assignment 2 submission is 27.12.2020 (Sunday) 23:55. Later submissions that are sent within the next day (28.12.2020) will be evaluated as late submissions and your grade will get a penalty for that (depending on how late you submitted). Any submission that is later than 28.12.2020, 23:55 will be discarded by the system. You are responsible for submitting early so that you are not affected by last-minute system glitches. 

How to download your assignment?

1.    Before making any changes, first UNZIP the excel file to a desired location in your file system.

2.    Make the necessary changes that are requested in the assignment description, and save the file without changing its name.

3.    Make sure that you have imported the data correctly. If there is missing data, you will lose points, most probably get a zero.

4.    Make sure you start from the top left corner (A1) in every sheet. Otherwise the location for your response will be wrong and you will lose points.

5.    When you are finished making changes, do not forget to save the file! (Many students got zero points in the past, just because they forgot to save the changes they made.)

6.    Do not delete the sheet that contains the questions in it! Otherwise our tool may misread the file and you may get zero points.

7.    Please check the file size before you try to upload the file. Ideal homework file size should not exceed 200 KB. Any submission with file size larger than 1 MB will not be accepted by the system.

8.    If your file size is larger than 1 MB, you are definitely doing something wrong. So, check the excel sheet that causes the problem and try to correct it.

9.    You must upload the Microsoft Excel file that you have downloaded (do not create a new file). Because the file you downloaded is unique for your student ID and another file cannot take its place. If you upload another file, you'll get zero points.

How to upload your assignment?
