Part of teaching is organized around group work, where students are assigned tasks of exploring and describing different technologies.
Assessment is based on two components: a group work (1/3 of the final grade) and an individual (4 hours) written examination (2/3 of the final grade). A passing grade for each of the components is required for a total passing grade.
For the group works, the topics, groups, deadlines, and nature of group deliverables are decided during the first four weeks of the teaching. Examples of possible deliverables are website definitions, text, software code, or videos. Each group will give a short presentation of their work in class, but only the deliverable is subject to grading. The deliverable is accompanied by a declaration of the individual contribution of each student, which students may be required to verify personally and orally. A passing grade on the group work is required in order for students to be allowed to take the written exam.
The written examination is held on premises. It consists of questions about the course curriculum and one or more programing tasks. Restricted use of computers is permitted and recommended.
- Reading documents locally on personal computer,
- accessing official course information on Learnit,
- desktop calculator or equivalent, and
- accessing a dictionary, e.g., English to Danish.
- Everything else. In particluar:
- searching or freely browsing the internet, and
- communicating with anybody over the network.
On re-examination (for students who fail to pass the regular exam), each student will be required to submit a deliverable (software code and text), and in oral examination defend their contents, show comprehension of the deliverable, and answer questions about any parts of the course curriculum. The requirements for the deliverable is specified one week before examination, and is decided with consideration of the student's assigned group work subject. Basis for grading is the combination of deliverable and examination. The time for examination is 30 minutes.The re-exam is with two examiners.
