Assessment methods
The course is completed by an oral exam. The precondition for the oral exam is to work up and hand over (by the date stated) 2 pieces of POT (paper corrected by the tutor) Any copying, keeping a record of tests or carrying the tests out, using forbidden aids including any communication devices or any other breach of objectivity of the exam is regarded as a failure to meet the obligations of the subject and as a serious breach of study regulations. As a consequence, the teacher grades the student with "F" and the dean is allowed to initiate a disciplinary action, which might lead to the termination of the studies.
