6. Policies and assessment process of the academic discipline

Assessment methods and rating system of learning results assessment

Current control consists of assessment of theoretical knowledge - two modules (25 points maximum each) and performance and defense of laboratory work (25 points maximum).
Examination control is determined by the answers to theoretical questions and is estimated at 25 points maximum.

Table of assessment scores:

Assessment scale
(100 points)
