Form(s) of Assessment
Form(s) of Assessment (additional text)
An overall assessment based on two electronic exams and two practical skill tests, each of 50 points. The third part is a group work, designing and describing a complete network environment including security measures and management principles. Conversion from 300 point scale to A-F scale according to recommended conversion table. Each single part must be passed.
In specific circumstances, emneansvarlig can slightly adjust the limits in the conversion table to enforce compatibility with the qualitative descriptions on the A-F scale.
Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)
Electronic exams evaluated externally through Cisco Networking Academy
Skill tests developed and evaluated internally.
Whole course must be taken over again.
