Student Assessment
Description
Students are divided in teams, each consisting of three members. Each team has to design and carry a small-scaled experiment using a minimum of three laboratory tools and analyse the results and writes a final report in manuscript format to be submitted by the end of the semester and presents the study at the end of the semester Assessment includes a)Written paper (70%) b)Final presentation (30%)
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Assignment (Formative, Summative)
  • Performance / Staging (Formative, Summative)
  • Labortatory Assignment (Formative, Summative)
