GRADING

Your final grade will be the weighted average of your grades from the two exams and the practical assignments. In particular:

Notice that grades for the essay and the presentation are group scores and will be weighted 15 and 10%, respectively. These numbers are preliminary pending the final number of students participating in this course.

  • participate in both exams and
  • turned in all practical assignments (essay, presentation, and project).

  • your final grade was at least 4.0 (before rounding)
If you failed and your averaged grade from the exams was below 5.0 or your final grade was below 5.5
  • you can participate in the retake exam. Your grade from the retake exam will replace the lower grade of the two regular exams if this improves your final grading.
If you failed and your averaged grade from the practicals was below 5.0
  • you can get a new practical assignment. The concrete topic will be decided individually by the instructors. Your grade from this new assignment will replace the lower one of your two grades of the regular practicals (part I or II) if this improves your final grading.
