|Evaluation methods: (2)||Written examination with distance learning methods, provided that the integrity and reliability of the examination are ensured|
|Implementation Instructions: (3)||The final examination of the course takes place on a scheduled day, according to the examination program of the Department. It is carried out through e-class and MS teams platforms. One day before the exam, the link of the exercise in e-class appears to those who have registered for the course and have taken note and accepted the terms of distance learning.
Students who participate in the examination, firstly must connect to MS teams and show their identity, in order to be identified by the teacher. Each student has to answer 25 multiple choice questions in 20 minutes. Every correct question is scored with 0.4 and there is also a negative score. More details are given with an announcement through e-class.
