Assessment methods (in Czech)
Laboratorní cvičení probíhá každý týden. Připravenost každého posluchače na příslušnou úlohu laboratorního cvičení je kontrolována před zahájením cvičení krátkým písemným testem nebo ústním přezkoušením. Všechny výpočty pro danou úlohu musí mít posluchači připraveny v laboratorním deníku před zahájením cvičení. Zameškaná cvičení musí být řádně omluvena a pro získání klasifikovaného zápočtu je nutno je nahradit do konce semestru.
