Student Assessment
Description
The students need to carry out tηρεε different projects during the semester, in which they are orally examined. The final score is calculated according to: Σ (i=1...3) [16.67% *(Project i + Oral Exam i)], where the score for each project and oral exam received values in the range 0 to 10.
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Assignment (Formative, Summative)
  • Oral Exams (Formative, Summative)
  • Report (Formative, Summative)
