- Good to keep up a high standard, but the correcting of the hand ins weren"t reasonable. It was more important to find out what Hamid wanted you to write than to think for yourself. When 95% failes on the 4th hand in and 100% on the 5th, there is something wrong with the excercise and not with the students. The questions was very fuzzy written while Hamid had a very strict image of what answer he wanted, and I think that caused a lot of troubles.» (Bad)
- but very time- consuming.so they were enough to be evaluated on a 5point scale rather than 3.» (Good)
- We learned a lot, but they were really hard considering you had to visit Hamid to pretty much get a lecture on the subject before starting with it. They should also be graded.» (Good)
- More information about what was actually supposed to be handed in could have avoided alot of the returns.» (Good)
- They where good but due to the fact that most got returns every time it feels like the instructions wasent clear enough from the beginning» (Good)
- It felt like it was really hard to know on which level the hand-ins should be. You never really knew what you were supposed to do. I would have liked to see the short "lectures" Hamid held on his room in the lectures for everyone to get a better understanding on what to do. However, you really learned the things you wrote about.» (Good)
- The excercises where good cause you learned a lot doing them, but the could have been more clearly written.» (Very good)
- Some times the goals seemed a bit vague, but still good exercises.» (Very good)

- Group projects is never » (Bad - it gave nothing)
- Very good, but far too time consuming to not be a part of the grade, and also, all together the total time of study of the cours was far beyond a normal 25% speed cours the second period. ( I spent more time on this cours than on image analysis)» (Very good - I learned a lot of interest)

- I haven"t taken yet but it was be too much work for exercises so they were enough for 5 grade scaling.» (?)
- I would have prefered a regular exam.» (Bad)
- It was not very hard. I dont think that the home exam should be the only basis for grading. Assignments during the course should be graded. This exam was a very little part of the course.» (OK)
- Good but would have been god if computer written text were allowed since there take a lot of time writing by hand.» (Good)
- Its really hard to know what the teachers want since it feels like the teachers already has very clear definitions on which answers they want» (Good)
- Good, but with a the different parts of the cours, it shouldn"t be the only thing affaecting the grade.» (Good)
- Yet again it was difficult to know on which level you should write. And totally meaningless to write it by hand, since I and all people I"ve talked to wrote it on a computer first. Use urkund instead, if you want to catch cheaters. » (Good)

- The workload in this course is high but it is a really interessting course.» (High)
- Like a normal 50%-speed cours over a whole semester» (Too high)
- I don"t think you should decrease the workload. Expand the course to 15 hp instead and through in some more field trips and laboratory exercises.» (Too high)

Genomsnitt: 4.25

- over workload... » (Good)
- Its a great course but it should give 15 points due to the time it takes» (Good)
- Excellent, very intresting cours, but there are room for improvements» (Good)
- This course is very relevant. I would like to see a 15hp course in biomedical instrumentation! (add some more content)» (Excellent)

26. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Sabina :)»
- The teachers and structure»
- lecturer»
- The guest speakers from Sahlgrenska, together with the followup tour to the hospital to see.»
- I really like the course but the workload is to much»
- Sabine (might be hard to do though...) The overall structure is good, but needs a little more time for each subject.»

27. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- the credit of the course should change from 7.5 to 15.»
- More labs»
- Grade exercises and project.»
- workload to students»
- More information on the hand-ins would probably save a return in alot of cases.»
- Double the points»
- The work load is too high for a 25% speed cours. The return of the home excercises are totally unneccessary when you are doing a good job. The question should be more precise written if it is only one answer that is accepted and thinking for yourself is not valued. »
- As said before: make this course 15 hp, because it is so very interesting and totally worth missing a selectional course for.»

28. Is something missing in the course that should be added?

- Not that I can think of right now»
- If you make it a 15hp course - add more study tours, go deeper into everything!»
- More field trips!»

29. Additional comments

- Keep up the good work people»
- The course could have been bigger, more points, more study tours. It is a really intressting course and I think that it would have been nice if it was bigger and that the credit for the course where higher.»
