Further on evaluation

Portfolio assessment is the basis for the grade in the course. The portfolio includes exercises (20%) and a final written test (80%). The written test is only in English. The exercises will partly be done as teamwork. The results for the parts are given in %-scores, while the result for the portfolio as a whole is given as a letter grade.
If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may change from written to oral.
In the case that the student receives an F/Fail as a final grade after both ordinary and re-sit exam, then the student must retake the course in its entirety. Submitted work that counts towards the final grade will also have to be retaken.

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
