Student Assessment
Description
Students are evaluated with a written exam, covering the spectrum of the course field. The critical thinking, as well as the level of understanding the course are examined by theoretical questions, multiple choice and exercises in a percentile proportion of approx. 30, 30, 40%, respectively.
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Multiple Choice Questions (Formative, Summative)
  • Written Exam with Short Answer Questions (Formative, Summative)
  • Written Exam with Problem Solving (Formative, Summative)
