Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Home assignment (0,7home assignament+0,3peer2peer)
    Total Homework Weight (Homework Submission and Peer Assessment) in Course Grade: 30%. Homework score is based on assessments given by other students. The score for the submitted homework is 70% of the total assessment for the homework. You can get another 30% by assessing the homework of other students. To get the maximum assessment for reviewing other students' homework, your score should be as close as possible to those that will be given by other reviewers. If the student, for a justifiable reason, did not do the homework on time, then a retake is possible. In such a case, the student is only required to upload his homework, and the score for it will be given by the teacher. This way an assessment is 100% of the homework score.
  • non-blocking Exam
    The exam takes place during the examination period. The test is based on the first four topics of the course (including the notes at the bottom of the video) and consists of 20 questions. The maximum test duration is 40 minutes. The student has two attempts to pass the test.
