- less than 25 percent because i thought it was very hard to understand the teacher since he had a very strange accent. but he was very nice and helpfull when talking to him one to one.» (25%)

- Sorry, but it takes too much of my concentration to listen to the dodgy english at the lectures.» (50%)

- I"m quite upset about the fact that I couldn"t get a lab partner. You see, I started the course when about 2 weeks already had passed and when I asked about finding a partner for the labs, I was told that I couldn"t under no circumstances join an already existing group. So I tried my best to find a partner - with no luck. Again I asked if I couldn"t join two of my friends because I really could need someone to bounce ideas with, and still I received a "no". Perhaps he didn"t meant it like that but it was as if he insinuated that I wanted to let someone else do the work for me. This of course made me furious and I decieded to do everthing by myself, just to prove that i"m not lazy. I didn"t have any problems with the labs but what if someone "not as skilled" were put in my position? Left without any chance to get some help from a partner? That is simply not OK.» (Very poorly)
- Some in the group did less than others though» (Very well)

- Too low in comparison with the exam, but i guess that"s my own fault.» (Low)
- Before the course started I was afraid that all the mandatory exercises and hand-ins would make the course workload to high. However these exercises proved to be of such a great help in learning the course content that less time could be spent reading the book and such. So the total time spent on the course adequate.» (Adequate)
- 2 deadlines each week is way too much» (Too high)
- Exam, pair assignments and a big project... Cancel 1 of 3.» (Too high)

Genomsnitt: 3.46

- Very interesting course and i learned alot.» (Good)
- Group projects are always good training.» (Good)
- i really like the concept, i felt like i learned a lot and that i can have use of my new knowledge in other courses and in the future. altough, the assistant was out of control.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The project»
- The group assignments, and the mandatory meeting weekly meeting.»
- The taxi project!»
- The structured with both Home Assignments and Project made for a lot of practical exercises. Which I think is a good was for learning.»
- Grupp-sessionerna med handledarna var riktigt bra.»
- Håkan Burden»
- the course elements. i liked the concept.»
- Projektet»
- The lecturer made the entire course sound really interesting, and the exercises were also very good. Correcting exercises made me look at them differently, and that was also very helpful.»
- The taxi project and Rogarts energy!»
- The project»
- Project, weekly exercises»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Better feedback at the project meetings. Weekly assignments could be removed in my opinion.»
- Correcting another groups home assignments might be a good exercise however have the correcting-session supervised supervisors felt like a waste. Their time should be used for the taxi-project»
- The only complaint I have is that I felt that the course had a bit too much emphasis on this really formal, academic stuff, especially formal verification. I did not really see how that is extremely useful in real world projects. I would definitely want something about it kept in the course, but perhaps not as much.»
- Byt föreläsare, hade riktigt svårt att förstå vad ha sa på norsk-skotska. Man var tvungen att förstå både svenska norska o engelska för att pussla ihop vad han menade. Psatade med en utbytes student som inte förstod ett ord. Varför ha kursen på engelska, när man ändå måste kunna svenska för att förstå den "svengelska" som föreläsningarna var på? Tappade mycket information och instuderingstid här. Besviken»
- Rogart»
- Better and more feedback on the taxi project from tutors.»
- Projektet har kon-karaktär där man skalar bort komplexitet inför nästa planerings-nivå. Vore kanske bra att ha ett mindre ämne där man man kan arbeta genom hela projektet. Kanske till om med skriva en implementation.»
- The lecturer mentioned several other books which focused more on the theory behind modelling. I have not read them yet, but I believe a book like that might be more suitable as the course book. UML examples can be found online.»
- Rogarts pronunciation of the English languge, and tell him to stop switching back and forth between english and swedish in the middle of the lecture. (I think he even switched to norweigan once)»
- Lecturer»
- If a teacher can"t speak English he shouldn"t have the lectures in English. »
- more about patterns and coding. a bit less OCL.»
- You have to check the knowledge of the tutors! My group had a tutor, and he couldn"t give us guidance at all. » (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
- (the assistant)» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
- The assistant should be changed, his skills in the English language is fair but most of the time its really hard to understand what he says and he clearly didn"t understand some of the assignments himself.» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

16. Additional comments

- The supervision provided by Håkan was excellent. He truely engaged in our group and helped us to evolve our project. He was available outside the scheduled time, and he cared to talk with us after the exam to see what we thought and how it went. How many other teachers would do that? Simply great!»
- Rogart is a little hard to understand until you"ve mastered his lingo.»
- Intressant ämne dock»
- Credits to djeremic who was really kind and helpful.»
- If Chalmers strive to be a somewhat quality-minded school they should have at least set some requirements on the lecturers. Because this is not the first time when the lecturer has been awful. »
- "UML is a monster, kind"a thing"a!" -- Rogart Heldal»
- Send Rogerdt on an English course please, it"s VERY hard to understand whatever language he"s speaking atm. Sorry for the harsh tone, I"m sure he"s a great teacher otherwise»
