EE308 Microcontrollers Lab


EE 308 Labs

Schedule for Spring 2006

Lab grading policy

You will be required to keep a lab book and write several formal reports.  You must leave your lab book in the lab after your lab session.  If you need your lab book before it is graded, you can get it from the TA.  However, you should not remove the lab book from the lab until graded.

You may use sample lab guidelines to prepare your lab report.  The Wednesday section lab books will be ready for pickup on Friday. The Monday section lab books will be ready for pickup on Thursday.

In preparation for the LAB, the PRELAB will be handed in at the start of the lab.

Your lab grade will be determined as follows:

  • 30% your lab book preparation
  • 50% your lab book record of your work in the lab, and ability to function in the lab.
  • 20% on the formal reports.

You are responsible for preparing for and completing the labs, including material which may not have been covered in class. This is a university environment, and you are expected to have the maturity to research and read all material you will need. If you don't understand something, ask for help. There are numerous resources available to you -- faculty, TA's, lab manager, etc. -- and we are all eager to help you succeed. However, you must take in initiative to seek help when you need it.
