This course uses continuous examination. Instead of one big final exam, there will be
- minor exams (duggor)
- for some blocks. These are 1-hour exams covering 2-3 chapters of the book.
- group exercises
- for some blocks. These are done in groups of 3 students, and of course all three should participate actively in the work. Hand-ins should be either on paper using a signed cover page, or (preferrably) using signed email using a trusted key/cert. The deadlines for handins are strict. Handins give score, not G/U: thus no "komplettering"/"completions". Handins, like the minor exam, represent part of what would have been the big final exam.
Each examination (dugga or exercise) will have a maximum score related to the amount of time you should have spent studying. The sum of your score will give your grade: 50/75% for G/VG.
Basic block and extension block
The course is split in two parts (exam codes):
- A basic block, 2 course credits, where "your score"/"max score" will give your grade.
- An extension block, 3 course credits, which consists of approximately 9 subjects, where the student can choose which subjects to study. Here x*"your score"/"max score" will give your grade, where x>1.
One item in the extension block is to write a report (2-3 pages) on a chosen subject, and make an oral presentation on October 14. Details about format, subjects etc will be announced. This item is mandatory to get a top grade (5/VG).
If you fail a block, you will get additional exercises/assignments on the relevant subjects during the winter. Hand-out and hand-in dates will be announced later.
