EXAMS

Exam description

The exam is written. The student who has passed the written test comes to the next session for an oral question and the registration of the vote.

The attending students may decide to carry out a group project work (groups of up to 6-7 people). These students will benefit from the program reductions specified in the "Texts / Bibliography" section. They will have to sustain the written test for both modules (87038 and 87039) during the winter session and, after acquiring the necessary knowledge and tools, they will independently develop the project work during the second semester and will be enabled to present it to the teachers during the summer session. For those students, the vote for each module will be given by the average of the evaluation assigned to the written test (60%) and to the project (40%). The evaluation of the project will consider the quality of the project (70%) the quality of Power Point presentation (10%) the quality of the oral presentation of each group component (20%). The overall vote for the integrated course (average of both modules 87038 and 87039) will be recorded only after the presentation of the project.

Assessment methods

The test aims to ascertain the following aspects of the student's preparation:

Knowledge about the basic concepts of the course
