### ASSESSMENT METHODS

Module MATHEMATICS

During the course, two interim tests will be conducted to ensure learning, they may replace a part of the written exam. The exam consists of a written test followed by an oral exam. On the written exam there will be some exercises related to the topics discussed in the course, not only the result will be evaluated, but also the performance and analysis of the result. At the oral examination, any mistakes made in the written test will be discussed and it will be ensured that adequate mastery of the concepts and methodologies outlined in the course has been acquired.

Module INFORMATICS

Written examination and oral exam on the topics discussed.
