Assessment and Evaluation

Test (in laboratory) consisting of theoretical questions, exercises to be solved by hand, and exercises to be solved using Stata.

OR

Two partial tests (in laboratory) during the course period, consisting of theoretical questions, exercises to be solved by hand, and exercises to be solved using Stata. Final mark is the average of the two test marks (if both are sufficient, i.e. mark greater or equal than 18).

Attendee students, who have regularly attended lectures and submitted on time ALL the assignments, can get a maximum of 3 extra points on the grade of the final exam based on the quality of their work.
