Assessment methods
To pass the course successfully, students have to meet the following requirements:
1) To play an e-learning game and to achieve the goal set by the instructor (dr. Petr Smutný). Result in the game makes up 15% of the final grade.
2) To take a practical exam in Witness and to achieve the goal set by the instructor (dr. Ondřej Částek). Result in the practical exam makes up 15% of the final grade.
3) Obtaining at least 60% points from the mid term (35% of the final grade) and final exam (35% of the final grade). Who does not achieve the limit of 60% has to re-take the exam. The date of re-take is given in course schedule, the date of second re-take will be agreed individually with each student. Who fails to achieve 60% even in the re-take exam is allowed to re-take it once more; however, this is the last chance.

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.
