Student Assessment
The final grade of the course is calculated only if there are no absences in the laboratory lessons and it is the result of the individual grades in the following: 1. Exercises during laboratory lessons (20%) 2. Presentation design and delivery project with Microsoft PowerPoint (20%) 3. Final theoretical examination (30%) 4. Final practical examination (30%) Remarks (a) Each individual grade, in order to count towards the final score, should be greater than the corresponding base-score, which is set at half of the corresponding maximum score. b) All laboratory exercises are mandatory. Only two (2) very well-justified absences may be replenished during the semester, after consultation with the instructor, and at the latest within one week of the respective absence. Ensuring transparency in the assessment of student performance Students are informed on a weekly basis about their performance in the laboratory exercises they perform at each (weekly) laboratory lesson by receiving a personalized e-mail in the account provided by the University, and have the possibility -in the context of office hours- to be further informed about their errors and omissions. In the same way they are informed of their performance and their errors / omissions both in the project they deliver and in the final examinations of the theoretical and practical part of the course at the end of the semester.
