Teaching methods
The course takes the form of both lectures and seminars.

There are explained basic thesis of main valuation methods and topical problems of public projects and public procurement valuation, which are further discussed and aplicated during seminars.
Assessment methods
The course is concluded with an oral exam.

Students are eligible to take the oral exam provided that they fulfill given conditions: they have to collect at least 60% points from the continuous evaluation within seminars.

The continuous evaluation is based on two written tests (30+30 points) and the elaboration and presentation of a seminar paper on a given topic (40 points). The teacher can award students with “bonus” points if they work actively during seminars.

Not gaining the required minimum of points is considered as a failure to prepare continuously. It does not mean that students can re-take “failed” tests or the seminar paper either. Students are graded with an F in such a case.
