EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists of the following parts: (i) a written test for admission to the oral examination and (ii) an oral examination during which students will discuss their assignments/project.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The written test, which serves as the admission to the assignments discussion, consists of some closed and open-ended questions related to the topics covered in class. The test allows the evaluation of the student's theoretical knowledge acquired during the course. Once the written test is completed, the schedule for the oral examinations is agreed upon. The written test and the assignments/project discussion take place in the same session.
