Examination modalities

At the beginning of each unit, the content of the last unit will be quizzed in a short test (5 questions, 15 min). A point will be awarded for each correctly answered question. The total amount of all points throughout the semester (max. 40 points) will be used to determine a partial grade (min. 21 points - genügend, min. 26 points - befriedigend, min. 31 points - gut, min. 36 points - sehr gut). If less than 21 points are scored, the seminar will not be successfully completed. For students with minimum 21 points, the participation (during group discussions and the quality of mini-presentations) will be considered for determining the final grade (60% minitests, 40% participation).
