Policy on freeriding
Our principle is that each group makes sure that all group members contribute to the group work process and outcomes. If there is a problem with lack of contribution, please consult Jouni Juntunen. In case all other group members agree, it is possible for us to give a particular group member a lower grade than the others, or fail him/her altogether. Please make use of this possibility, it has been done before.
