Student Assessment
students are given a couple of short Quiz. Students in two-member groups are assigned to write a report on a relevant subject, which they must also present to their fellow students who are expected to rate them. The fial grade consists of the students performance on the quiz and the oral presentation as well as the completeness of the written report. on the same subject.
