Further on evaluation

The course has two alternative assessment forms for the students to choose from: 'assignment/written examination' and 'assignment'. See 'teaching methods and activities' for different required activities related to the two assessment forms.

Assessment 'assignment/written examination': the assessment is based on an essay written with supervision, which makes up 50% of the final grade, and a six-hour written exam (no materials), which makes up 50% of the final grade. The written exam aims to a greater extent to test breadth of knowledge. The individual parts will not be graded, evaluation by an overall grade. In order for the students to pass, both exam parts must be considered to have a level that would have been equivalent to a passing grade. In case of retakes, students must redo both exams.

Assessment form 'assignment': the assessment is based on an essay written with supervision
