The assessment of this course is divided into two components:
- Practical Assessment, performed throughout the semester (labs)
- Conceptual Assessment, performed at the end of the semester (exam).
List of marks and grades (as of 24-Jan-2014): marks-pdf (now complete)
The Practical Assessment will be obtained as follows:
- 10 points per lab session. Total = 70 points. See below for details on how the lab sessions are graded.
If you get less than 30 out of 70 points in the practical assessment, you will get a grade of 'F' in your first examination. In this case, you will be given a second chance to improve your practical assessment score. If your score after the second try is at least 30 out of 70, you will become eligible for a retake exam (korduseksam).
The Conceptual Assessment will consist of an exam worth 30 points. Students who get less than 10 out of 30 in this exam, will get a grade of 'F', regardless of their Practical Assessment score. This same rule will apply for the resit (korduseksam).
