Type of assessment
Written assignment, 1 block
Oral examination, 60 minutes
Type of assessment details
Written assignment, oral defence. Written assignment must have been handed in.

Project report may be completed individually or by groups of up to 4 students.

The project report may either be a joint report or a report stating the contribution of each student in the group.

Even if the group has prepared a report stating the contributions of the individual students, the students will be examined on the content of the entire report at the oral exam, taking into account the academic capabilities of the individual student. The assessment will be based on the individual student’s contribution to the report and the oral presentation.

The project outside the course scope is concluded with an oral defense. For single student the defense lasts max. 60 minutes incl. an oral presentation of 10-20 min followed by a discussion lasting approx. 20-30 min. For group reports the presentation can last max. 30 min followed by a discussion of approx. 20-30 minutes pr. person.

Whether the final assignment is written as group work the student may, where there is an oral defense, choose individual oral defense. The exam for group projects may take the form of a separate examination of the individual students without the attendance of other group members, if the student so wishes.

The page limit and required format of the project report are as follows:

Maximum 30 A4-pages for one student and 45 A4-pages for group report (excluding front page, table of contents, references and appendices).
