Form(s) of Assessment
Written exam, 5 hours
Evaluation of Project(s)
Form(s) of Assessment (additional text)
Written exam, 5 hours, counts 70%.
Evaluation of project(s), counts 30%, evaluated by lecturer(s).
Each part must be individually approved, and the projects/mandatory exercises must be passed/approved before taking the exam.
Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)
Evaluated by internal lecturer. External examiner shall be used periodically.
Ordinary re-sit examination.
The mandatory projects/exercises are valid for one year after they have been accepted.
Exact number will be given at the beginning of the semester.
The plan is to have 2 projects with marks and 3 mandatory exercises.
