More precise instructions of the coursework exercise will be posted on 11.4.05, but the website for submitting the coursework will only be available on 13.4.05. The Linuxzoo website will have a submit button for each question of the exercise, but there will not be as much feedback provided during the exercise as you get with the normal tutorials. The feedback will contain a percentage score for each part of each question. You need an average score of 40% for each question to pass the coursework. For each question which you have failed, you will then have another 8 days (until 22.4.05) to write a written report explaining how the question could be solved and what might have been wrong with your attempts. The report must contain the commands which should be used and an explanation of how the commands would solve that question. This report must be submitted to the School Office by 16:00 on 22.4.05. Please, note that the marks from the written report can only be used to raise a mark for a failed question to 40% for that question.
