CS 2510 Online Homework Submission

For the whole semester we will be using online submission for the programming component of all assignments in this course. Instructions for using the homework server are below. We will leave these instructions accessible from the Assignment page, and the Lab page ofr future reference.

Installing the Submission Plugin

Download the plugin to your computer. Use the "File">"Install .plt file..." menu option to install this file. Once it completes (it may take a bit) click close and restart Dr.Scheme/Racket. If it installs correctly, you will have a CS 2510 Handin button above your definitions window.

Verifying your Account

Your username is your MyNEU account name (for instance, my account is "chadwick.b"). Use the "File">"Manage CS 2510 Handin Account" menu option and choose the "Change Info" tab to get your current account information. Enter your username and your password is "pass" (no quotes), then click "Get Current Info". Change your password to something you will remember (something you will remember!!). Then click "Set Password".

If you notice any other information missing/mistaken feel free to update it and click "Change Info" to make corrections. Note: this information is just for book-keeping, what really matters is your MyNEU user ID.

Submitting Homework

You will do a mock submission to the "test" assignment with your partner, to get a handle on the process. YOu can submit what ever you like... just make sure it's correctly formatted Scheme code.

To submit your homework, make sure it is open in the Definitions Window and saved to disk (just in case, for later assignments). Then click the "CS 2510 Handin" button. For pair submissions (most of you), enter both yours and your partner's usernames joined by "+", as in baggins.f+gamgee.s . Enter either person's password (i.e., your password, or your partner's... get it?).

Select the correct assignment name (test for testing) from the drop down list. When you are ready, click "CS 2510 Handin" within the popup window. Dr.Scheme/Racket will report on whether your submission was successful, and might give you an error message. If submission fails, CAREFULLY READ the error message and correct your submission appropriately.

Checking Grades

Log in to this page using your handin server username and password. It will take you to a page listing all of the homeworks so far. For each homework it shows whether you handed it in, a link to your latest submission, and your grade once we finish grading it. If you have any questions contact your friendly Instructor, especially if you notice some inconsistencies.

Your graded files will be annotated, highlighted, and posted on the server as soon as they are graded, so you can see what we took points off for.
