Assessment methods:
For the award of credit is required at least 75% attendance at seminars and submitted individual exercise protocols.

The course is completed by exam which has two parts. The first part is written in the form of the test (40 % of the mark). After student passes the test (minimum 70 %), oral examination continues. Followed by a debate with the examiner about specific topics, which were discussed during the semester (60 % of the mark). Upon successful completion of the oral examination (minimum 70%) is a final mark entered into the index / UIS.
