- The questions require interpretation and so hard to understand. In order to get the meaning of the question we had to read it a lot. Because of this, I really need at least an extra half an hour.

- The best course web page ever. Great structure, very easy to find what you are looking for and all the information you need for the course is there.» (Very well)
- Excellent course homepage! All courses should adopt similar style. It would have been nice if we did not have to run between the student portal and course homepage for the lab registeration etc ... but its only a cosmetic issue. From the functionality point of view ... no complaints.» (Very well)

11. How interested would you be in doing a scheduling-theory take-home exam in study week 7? The take-home exam would be in addition to the lab assignment, but may give bonus points on the written exam.

Not interested»3 13%
Mildly interested»6 26%
Quite interested»6 26%
Very interested»8 34%

Genomsnitt: 2.82

- Lab + written exam + take home exam ... too many things. It would have been a good option if the lab was not so demanding. An alternative could be to have more extensive coverage of scheduling theory in the lectures and then include more/difficult problems in exam. » (Not interested)
- There is enough work to learn the scheduling theory for the exam, if the take-home exam was in the form of several shorter questions to test if you have theoretical knowledge of all areas of the course (and would help you prepare for the exam in that way) it would be very interesting but if it is an in depth exam then it would not be interesting» (Mildly interested)
- The idea is definitely interesting. The problem as I can see it though, is the increased work load. During the last week you really just want to study for the exams.» (Quite interested)
- Nice idea, but perhaps if it were optional. » (Very interested)

- Risaat was always ready to help. Pity that he did not always have the time to help. It felt like he was doing the job of 2 TAs all by himself. Nevertheless, he is a good teacher. » (Rather good)
- Sometimes it was difficult to get help during the laborations, but the help was excellent.» (Rather good)

Genomsnitt: 4.26

- i dont say good or excelent because it really depends on how will they mark my exam but i would rather say it was a good course» (Adequate)
- Interesting course!» (Good)
- the lecturer is excellent and the course assistant also, and quite helpful.» (Excellent)
- Very good course. Excellent structure, great lecturer.» (Excellent)
- One of the most interesting labs I ever did. » (Excellent)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- laboratory and exercises»
- The lectures, lab»
- The lab assistant ,Risat,is so kind and responsible and full of knowledge.»
- everything»
- the "solved on the blackboard" exercises, a similar lab assignment. the lecture slides were rather good.»
- The excellent administration of the course (web page, handouts, information). »
- The overall structure of the course. Hopefully both Jan and Risat will be involved next year as well, since they both did a great job. And keep the course web page! »
- Lab. »
- The number of lectures och excercises. The assignment was good.»
- Everything was good. Not having programming questions was the best idea but having more mathematical questions requires more time. »
- Homepage layout, risats excersise hours! Trainlab was also good.»
- Risat Pathan!»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- just wrote the exam today and my hand/arm still hurts. maybe not so intensive problems on the exam?»
- The train lab was somewhat confusing at times, and even the TAs had a hard time helping us with some of the problems. There is probably a great deal of work involved in designing a new lab though. One other thing that I really don"t like is exam questions with minus points. I just keep second guessing myself and often end up not willing to take the risk of loosing points even though I am confident I do know the answer. A suggestion would be to remove the true/false part and base the points entirely on the motivation instead since there is nothing wrong with the questions themselves.»
- Maybe more indepth scheduling theory and related concepts. »
- Add some time constraints to the lab. This is just a copy of the parallel programming lab.»
- Perhaps the scheduling-theory take-home exam in study week 7 mentioned above. »
- Timing of the exam. We need more time to solve problems.»
- One big lab assignment should be removed.The lab part should be divided into 2-3 small assignments implementing different concepts. »

19. Additional comments

- During excercise sessions, use more time to solvve problems, and less lecturing»
- Thanks a lot for well-organized course. everything was clear and helpful.»
- a very interesting area of study.»
- for the GU students it did not say the limits for G and VG on front of the exam. »
- All things considered this was a very good course that I will definitely recommend to anyone interested.»
- It is a good thing that there were no questions on Ada programming in the exam because it is not interesting to write down code on paper for an exam. Both teachers are good. Risaat"s availability was sometimes a problem because he had too many students to look after. But he taught well. »
- the TA is really good and helpful person »
- Excellent Teacher and Lab Assistance»
- The scheduling part is the crux of the cpurse so it should be in the middle of the course not at the end of course.As the end of the course, things move vary fastly so it creates some problems. Also early inrtoducing of this concept will give more time to practise these calculations. »
