Assessment and permitted materials

During the practical course, three aspects are being evaluated: preparation (oral exams, Block 1 - 4 ), practical performance (preparing all required products in satisfying quality, Block 1 - 4), calculations (written exams, Block 1 - 4). There is a practical exam at the end of the course (Block 6, Abschlussrezeptur, duration: 4 hours).
In addition, the general performance of the students can be evaluated at any given point and students are expected to be able to explain what they are doing and why they are doing it during the practical work. Not responding to the teaching personnels' instructions will affect grades accordingly, as will continued late arrival for the course.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The basic requirement for a positive grade is the capability to analyse magistral formulae based on acquired knowledge, correct them if necessary, produce them in a state of the art manner, select an appropriate vessel and labelling, and calculate the price - all in a reasonable time frame.
The assessment of each student's performance is based on preparation (Platzreferat, oral exams), practical skills (preparation of all products during the course in satisfying quality) and theoretical skills (calculations, written exams). Block 1 to 4 are assigned 15 points each for the above aspects. Block 5 can be seen as an opportunity to gain (or lose) 1 - 2 points according to motivation. Block 6 is a practical test which is assigned 20 points.
Grades are given according to the achieved points with 48 - 56 Punkte: "Genügend", 57 - 64 Punkte: "Befriedigend", 65 - 72 Punkte: "Gut", 73 - 80 Punkte: "Sehr gut".

In addition, each Block of sections 1 - 4 and 6 has to be evaluated in a positive manner with no less than 8 points to obtain a positive grade.

Examination topics

Will be discussed in the lecture "Magistrale Arznemittelherstellung - M3". Knowledge of basic working procedures when producing magistral formulae (including knowldge about deployed ingredients and potential problems) is key for the oral tests. Practical performance when doing caculations relevant to the production of magistral formulae is key for the written examinations. The final exam will require all of these skills combined.
