Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
Written exam (40%), protocol+presentation (20+20%), active cooperation (20%)The marking of all partial requirements is based assignment of points. The maximum number of points is 100 for the entire course.
In order to get a positive evaluation of the course, all partial requirements have to be assigned as ‘sufficient’.
The following key for marking is used:Written exam (40 points max.)
>=36 points: excellent
31-35 points: good
27-31 points: satisfying
23-27 points: sufficient
< 23 points: insufficientActive cooperation
20 points: excellent (active and constructive participation)
15 points: good (active participation)
10 points: satisfying (regular participation)
5 points: sufficient (less than three times absent)
0 points: insufficient (more than two times absent)Presentation/protocol (20 points max. each):
>=18 points: excellent
15-17 points: good
13-15 points: satisfying
10-13 points: sufficient
< 10 points: insufficient
