Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: B
Evaluation Methodology: T/TP components: 3 written quizzes without support materials and without calculator on the first quiz. It is possible to take the Lab (P component) test up to 2 times (the second is optional).

The T/TP component is worth 2/3 of the final grade and the P component is worth 1/3.

In the appeal period it is possible to repeat up to 2 out of the 3 quizzes. Only the best grades from each quiz will be taken into account for the final evaluation.
