What is my grade based on?

Evaluation

The evaluation of the tasks is done in the end of the course.

The Development Project part of the course is evaluated by using 360 method. This means that first students evaluate themselves and then students evaluate project team members. Client feedback is asked and based on the feedback and the reviews, the coaches give the final grades.

The evaluation is done from the viewpoint of the learning objectives of the project. 

The Academic Writing (Theory Report) is evaluated by the coaches. The evaluation is based on topic, scope, structure, referencing skills and overall quality of the work.
