Teaching methods
There are 3 tutorials during the semester.
Assessment methods
The students have to write POT, 2 tests in the IS 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. Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam (credit test) by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
