Statement of Accomplishment

Dear networking students,


Here are the news many of you have been eagerly waiting for. After considering all your submissions, we have decided that to be eligible for a Statement of Accomplishment, you must have an aggregate score of 500 points on the two Problem Sets (this is approximately a 50% score). After considering how challenging the problem sets were, reading the message boards, and examining our goal of having the certificate represent a student has learned a great deal about networking, we believe 500 points is a good threshold. If you're above this threshold, congratulations! If not, don't worry, we will be offering the course again next year and look forward to seeing you again. Even if you didn't receive 500 points, you have a much deeper understanding of networks and the Internet, knowledge that you can use in the future.


We're currently in the process of preparing the Statements of Accomplishment. We are planning on sending them at the beginning of January.
