Assessment methods:
To get preliminary student must have a minimum of 50% of the scores from the continuous assessment, which includes:

- Active participation is required in the seminary, maximum 10 points (the student has an overview of the lectured topics and can calculate the basic exercises demonstrated at the lectures).
- continuous test, total possible 20 points

The exam is in the form of a written work and is considered successful if the gain is at least 35 points. If students are not successful in writing, they are rated F. If students successfully pass a written work, the subject assessment is given by the sum of the points obtained from the test and the written exam:
[90; 100] points - A
[83; 90) points - B
[75; 83) points - C
[68; 75) points - D
[60; 68) points - E

Students will bring writing accessories, calculator and the student card for written work. All nonempty papers are handed in, otherwise the student will be assessed by a grade F.

Any copying, recording or excerpt of tests and written works, the use of illicit devices as well as means of communication or other impairment of objectivity in the verification of knowledge will be considered gross violation of the study regulations. As a result, the course is closed in the UIS by F and teacher can initiate disciplinary proceedings, which may result in termination of studies.
