Assessment methods
The exam is written. The students have to write POT and fill self-correcting exercises in the IS during the semester. The exam takes place in the exam period. The exam has a written form. It is necessary to have more than 60 % to pass the exam. The final written test is to be taken during the exam period. If the student is caught during the examination performing any form of forbidden activity (for example: cribbing, allowing cribbing, using non-permitted materials and devices, exchanging tests, creating copies of tests, or substituting for other student), the teacher will stop the exam and according to the seriousness of the offence the student will be graded F, or FF or even FFF.
