Interim Assessment

Interim Assessment

  • 2021/2022 2nd module
  • 2021/2022 3rd module
    FG=0,25*AS+0,25*D1+0,25*D2+0,25*TD AS – Assignments D1 – Research proposal presentation D2 – Research proposal defence TD – Thesis work-in-progress draft Rounding is standard. Example 7.5=8; 7.4=7; 7.6=8. The rounding is used for each assessment element. In-class assignments must be uploaded 2 hours before the start of the seminar. Late submissions of the tasks result in 1 point deduction for every 24 hours of the delay. Cameras must be on during the presentations, otherwise the individual score is reduced by 50%.
