Assessment and permitted materials

several multiple-choice exams and two written exams (probably on November 19th 2021 and January 31st 2022).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

This course is immanent to examinations. Therefore, attendance of 75% of the lecture hours is mandatory to pass the course. Furthermore, at least 50% of all possible points from multiple-choice tests and written exams must be achieved.

Examination topics

All of the course content listed above.

Reading list
