Assessment methods and criteria

The result of the semester work is the summary project. The extent of the submitted summary work is assigned at the beginning of the semester. Fulfillment of the work volume from the size viewpoint is a fundamental item in assessing the student. If the entire volume is not developed, meaning the artistic and techical parts, the project is graded as very insufficient. The quality of the developed work is an item which influences the grading level. The activity of the student during the semester is a supplementary element to grading. During the semester the student completes several parts whose fulfillment is an inseparable part of the student assessment.
