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 activity of the classes is evaluated, and the student should prepare a project task and submit it at the latest before taking the written exam.
The final grade includes the points from the partial exams, the tests from the laboratory exercises, the student activity in the classes and the project task.
In the exam sessions, a written exam is taken (duration 120 minutes). The final grade includes the points from the written exam, the tests from the laboratory exercises, the student activity during the classes and the project task
