Two tests are taken within the semester and the average of the grade of those tests is multiplied by 0,3 and is added to the grade of the final test. The precondition for the validity of this bonus is the grade of the final test to be equal or over three. 2. Assignments are delegated to the students that are graded with ranking 0-2. The grade of this assignment is added to the final grade of the semester The precondition for the validity of this bonus is the grade of the final test to be equal or over three

Alternative ways of examining a course in emergency situations

 

Teacher (full name): Christos Karelakis
Contact details: chkarel@agro.duth.gr
Supervisors: (1) No
Evaluation methods:(2) Written examination with distance through e-class and Microsoft Teams, provided that the integrity and reliability of the examination are ensured
Implementation Instructions: (3) The examination will be carried out via multiple choice questions in e-class and Microsoft Teams on the scheduled date.

A. Microsoft Teams

The Microsoft Teams link is created on the course page on the platform and exclusively in the institutional accounts of those who have registered for the course and have learned the terms of distance education.

Students must log in to the Microsoft Teams room through their institutional account, otherwise they will NOT be able to participate. They will be identified using their institutional account.

B. e-class

At the same time, they must log in to the e-class using their institutional account and go to the course page (prerequisite to have registered for the course)

https://eclass.duth.gr/courses/OPE01138/

The exam lasts 30 minutes and each student must answer 20 multiple choice questions, without a negative grade. Each of the questions is scored with 0.5.
