Description of exams and course work
The listed achievements, see Intended Learning Outcomes, are evaluated by one written exam of 90 min. There will be moreover two case studies, where the students must provide the source code that generates the report of an analysis of a given dataset. The analysis of this data covers all topics stated under Intended Learning Outcomes. The first case study covers topics 1-7. The second covers the topics 8-16. The final mark is the exam mark with bonus points for the two case studies.
The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
