20.  Forms of assessment During the semester, there are two mid/end-term partial exams (120 min each). Besides these exams, any student must complete and submit the required homework/project assignments, according to the schedule published at the course web site. For the students that will not be successful at the partial exams there is additional opportunity to do final exam (180 min.).
The final mark is determined from the weighted average of scores from the exams and homework/project assignments.
During the exams, it is allowed to use literature in printed form. Calculators are allowed, but not mobile phones, tablets or similar electronic devices
