Method of calculating the final grade:

Grading:
Grading formula: FG= PMWFlect *w*PMGlect + PMWFsem *w*PMGsem + PMWFlexer*w*PMGlexer
Where:
• FG-final grade
• PMWFlect – Lecture part weighting factor – 0,5
• PMGlect– Grade of achieved LOs relevant to lecture part
• PMWFsem– Seminar part weighting factor – 0,25
• PMGsem– Grade of achieved LOs relevant to seminar part
• PMWFlexer– Laboratory exercises weighting factor – 0,25
• PMGlexer– Grade of achieved LOs relevant to laboratory exercises

w = 1 for the I term, w = 0.9 for the second term, w = 0.8 for third term

All LO weighting factors associated with part of the module (PM) equal

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

The knowledge dedicated to basic chemistry.

Additional information:

The overall assessment consist of two steps:
1. Assessment of fulfilling of module learning outcomes and OLOs.
2. Assessment and grading of the quality of students work.
EIT OLOs assessed in the industrial internship:
• Making value judgments and sustainability competencies (EIT OLO 1)

• Creativity skills and competencies (EIT OLO 3)

• Research skills and competencies (EIT OLO 5)
• Intellectual transforming skills and competencies (EIT OLO 6)
• Leadership skills and competencies (EIT OLO 7)
The Method of assessments indicated in point escription of learning outcomes for modulen icludes assessment of learning outcomes and OLOs
