The teamwork grade is composed of two assignments. The first teamwork evaluation, administered shortly after the Design Review phase, consists of feedback questions designed to help the ECE 445 Staff better understand how each student's group is progressing towards the final demo. If all questions are answered completely and thoughtfully, the student will be awarded 5 points for completion of the assignment. No partial credit will be awarded for late submissions. The survey may be completed on Compass2g.

The second teamwork evaluation is a subjective score that will be awarded at the end of the semester according to the criteria below. Partner evaluations may be completed on Compass2g at the end of the semester to help determine this score. Responses to both surveys are confidential and will not be disclosed to the other teammates in the student's group.

Requirements and Grading

Each student in a group will be evaluated on the following criteria:

Submission and Deadlines

The teamwork evaluation forms should be completed on Compass2g by the deadlines listed on the Course Calendar. Teamwork evaluation sheets will be taken into account when teamwork grades are assigned. However, these scores will not fully determine the teamwork grade.

Growing Degree Day Monitor

Anthony De Roo, John Habegger, Jay Zhaoyu Yao

Featured Project

The purpose is to create an inexpensive growing degree day monitor that records temperature and computes growing degree days for a specific farming field during a growing season. This monitor will be placed near a farm field where it will monitor temperature conditions during the growing season. It will record both the ambient air and soil temperatures over the course of day. These temperatures will then be used to calculate the growing degree days. The cumulative number of degree days will then be displayed on either a seven-segment display or this can be downloaded to a computer. This monitor will be powered through a combination of both solar and battery power.
