Student Assessment
The students have to complete their homework exercises given to them every two weeks. Subsequently they have to present a research subject related to the development of new materials. At the end of the semester there is also a quiz with multiple choice questions. The contribution coefficients to the final mark is 30% for the homework, 40% for the research subject and 305 for the multiple choice quiz
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Multiple Choice Questions (Formative, Summative)
  • Performance / Staging (Summative)
  • Labortatory Assignment (Summative)
