Performance in the course will be assessed as follows:
- Group project 45%
- Final exam 45%
- Peer review 10%
The overall grade in the course is based on group (45%) and individual (45% + 10%) performance. The project involves group assessment with the same grade being awarded to all members of a given group.
As the course has prüfungsimmanenten Charakter, attendance is compulsory throughout the semester (see also Admission and Attendance Policies on our homepage); more than three absences will automatically result in a failed grade.
Successful completion of the course requires a minimum grade of 50%. The grading system is as follows: 0 to 49% - grade 5, 50 to 59% - grade 4, 60 to 69% - grade 3, 70 to 79% - grade 2, 80 to 100% - grade 1.
Students who fail must repeat the entire course (and must register in the usual way next time the course is offered). No opportunities for make-ups will be offered.
Research projects represent an integral part of the course. They will be tackled in groups of 3-4 students and will involve group presentations. Further details will be provided in class. All material covered in the sessions/project is examinable!
The final exam will last 60 minutes and will be based on the material covered in the lectures and the literature provided.
No material other than a dictonary may be used in the final exam.
The reading list can be found on the course outline (see link above).
Additional literature might be provided later in class.
