Coquitlam College Lab Assignments Policy

Every week there are lab assignments. The assignments will become available during your scheduled class time (if you attend classes in the college) or at the start of the week, if you're completing the course online.

The lab assignments are based on the Python 3 topic for the current week. You should do all the reading shown on the course schedule (see C4 or go to for the schedule), study the example programs in the current week on C4 AND watch the videos in the current week on C4 BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE ASSIGNMENT. Post questions on (see Week 1 on C4), and if you need help in person - see the instructor during office hours. The Computer Science Instructors' office is opposite Room 1. Office hours are posted on C4, on the course schedule at and on the notice board outside the office.

YOU ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEMPT ALL ASSIGNMENTS. Complete as much as you can and upload whatever you manage to complete before the deadline. You will not lose any points if your program does not run. You will lose Participation points if you fail to upload your assignments.


On this course you are eligible to earn up to three bonus points. These points will be added to your overall final grade at the end of the course - after completion of the final exam. This means that in theory it is possible to score 103% on the course. Bonus Point Assignments are announced in the assignment instructions. The first student to successfully complete the assignment (exactly according to the instructions) will receive one bonus point.


Frequently monitor your course page on C4 for new resources and assignments.

Pay careful attention to all the information shown when you click on the lab assignment link. The lab assignment page will tell you when the lab will be available and will tell you the due date deadline. You may need to scroll down the assignment page to see all the information and the Submission button. If you miss the lab assignment deadline, you will not be able to submit your assignment. Late assignments are not accepted by email.
