Projects are assessed orally and individually. At the start of the course, specific criteria for assessing project contributions according to course goals are presented. During the oral examination, activity traces from collaboration platforms such as Gitlab or Github are used as a basis for assessment. Artifacts to be reviewed are individual code changes contributed, reviews of other team members' submissions, internal team support, time planning and review. Individual changes are reviewed based on acceptance in external projects, as well as course staff criteria, including assessment of the technical level of difficulty, adherence to good industrial practice and design.
Re-examination is conducted during exam periods.
