Assessment methods
1. One of the credit requirements is attendance. Students may miss two classes during the semester. Absence from more than two classes must be compensated. 2. To successfully pass the final practical test of basketball skills. Description of the test is: Practical test from single player game activities and team-based game combinations. The students will be tested in:
Dribbling and lay up – including getting open with ball; change of hand and direction while dribbling; dribbling between cones; rebound after lay up.
Pair passing with a shot.

All the relevant rules must be followed and the game activities properly executed. Scoring is not assessed, but the shooting must be properly executed and the ball must touch the rim.
Game situation 3 on 3 – the offensive players start with only passing the ball on their half of the court and continue according to the game rules, including dribbling, on the offensive halfcourt and attempt to score. If they score the players‘ roles change - the deffensive players become offensive and start by throwing the ball in from the baseline. In case the offensive team do not score, the game continue until they score or the defensive team get the ball (e.g., in defensive rebound). In this case the roles of the teams change without a throw-in from the baseline.

The game situation must be conducted without rules violation and properly executed both offensively and defensively with the emphasis on single player game activities.
