- Teaching methods
- The course has a form of a lecture and a seminar. Students can get bonus points for the exam if they take KvISes during lectures.The seminars are compulsory and the students are evaluated according their activity. Students are tested on each of the seminar.
- Assessment methods
- Credit requirements: pass progress tests for more than 60% and active participation in seminars. The course is concluded by a written exam. The 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. If a student enrolls in the course during his/her trip abroad, he/she must complete self-correction exercises during the semester, complete tests and pass an exam upon his/her return. Arrangements must be made prior to the start of the semester.
