|20. Forms of assessment||During the semester, two partial written exams are provided (at the middle and at the end of the semester, lasting 120 minutes) and a test of laboratory exercises (after the completion of each of the exercises). The student should also prepare a project assignment and submit it before the written exam.
The final grade includes the points from the partial exams, the tests from the laboratory exercises and the project task.
In the planned exam sessions, a written exam is provided (duration 120 minutes). The final grade includes the points from the written exam, the tests from laboratory exercises and the project task.
During the exam it is allowed to use auxiliary literature (instruction set and technical parameters of the devices), which are available on the faculty portal
