End of Semester Stuff

12-2-2016 @ 10:05pm,

Late Assignments

ALL Late assignments you wish to turn in to Prof Kohn must be received no later than 3pm on Dec 7.

Assignments over two weeks late will NOT be accepted. Those less than two weeks late will be penalized 1.5% per day late.

Assignments already submitted and/or graded will not be accepted (no resubmissions).

Extra Credit

Please check the Fall 2016 Extra Credit List and report any errors or omisions ASAP. (Please note - E-Day for Dr Berriso has yet to be entered on the sheet. has now been entered). Added TECH4943 Presentation grading (for all my classes EXCEPT TECH4943). Also if you are wondering, the highlighted cells are formulas (students in more than one of my classes) and the ones with crossed lines means extra credit does not apply for that class.

One hour of Extra credit time will be given to all students in a given class if 90% of the class completes the SETE for the course by the time SETE's close (see next post for instructions).

This list will be used to calculate the applicable extra credit for Prof Kohn's Classes (keeping in mind the course policy for each class).


I have started to fill in the calculations for the end of semester grades. The letter grade is MEANINGLESS until all grades are in (the formula is just to big to erase). The "ALL" row is your current grade, but keep in mind that all grades are NOT in (exam, projects etc) and is NOT out of 100. All formulas have yet to be verified and extra credit is yet to be applied.

Peer Tutoring

08-26-2016 @ 8:15pm,

Once again Herff College is offering peer tutoring for our undergraduate students.

Attached is the Fall Tutoring schedule for you (click button below). We have a couple of new things this year.

1) Every student will need to swipe their university ID for check-in and check-out at tutoring. Tutoring is still FREE, but this will allow us to see how many students are using the free tutoring and make sure we are providing the best service possible.

2) Tutoring now has a new home. ALL tutoring will take place in ET236. This means the tutors won't be kicked out of the room due to scheduling conflicts. Also, this room is open for anyone to use through out the day for students to study in groups, use computers, and printing.

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
