Teaching methods
The course consists of lectures and seminars.
Assessment methods
The course is completed by an exam. The total score consists of:
- the points gained in four written tests (80%)
- the points for active participation at instructions and homework - autocorrection exercise (20%)
Any copying, recording or taking out the tests, use of unauthorized devices and means of communication or other distortions of test objectivity will be considered a failure in the course and a gross violation of study regulations. Consequently, the teacher closes the test (credit) score in IS by grade "F" and Dean initiates disciplinary proceedings.
