Human-Computer Interaction

course description & grading

Overview

The main objectives of the Human-Computer Interaction course are to provide a comprehensible vision of the user interface design aspects and the user-computer interaction types.

The enrolled students (second semester, Master studies at FII, UAIC) will be able to design ergonomic and attractive user interfaces for specific types of audiences, applications, platforms, and devices, including Web and mobile ones – consult the main HCI topics.

Evaluation

The assessment procedure consists of a mandatory HCI project and a set of tests:

The D and P components will be evaluated from 0 to 10 points for each team member, according to the amount of maximum points allocated for a HCI project proposal. Each Ti, i ∈ [1, 5], will be assessed with maximum 2 points.

Grading formula is T * 0.2 + D * 0.3 + P * 0.5, where T = sum(Ti : i ∈ [1, 5]).

In order to pass, an enrolled student must obtain:

  • minimum 6 points for D component;

  • minimum 5 points for P component.

Additional Information

Failed D or P components could be reevaluated with a 2 point penalty on 19 June, 17:00.
Nota bene : No re-assessment for Ti tests.

The partial grades of failed students from previous years are not taken into consideration.
