- I think it is ok to have home assignments that give some credits, but I think that the main focus should be on the exam, especially since the home assignments are not strictly individual. My experience from earlier courses with this form of examination (more than half of total credits from assignments) is that many more students get very high grades and that almost nobody fails the course. Of course I don"t know yet if this will be the case also for this course, but this is how it generally ends up with this form of examination. If it becomes too easy to get the highest grade, there is no meaning to have different grades and then you could equally well use just passed/failed. But to summarize, it is ok to give bonus points for assignments, but it should be handled in such a way that it does not shift the average grade upwards.» (Somewhat)
- Then you have to study during the entire study period.» (Yes definetely)
- I think it"s a great way of learning, and give confidence for the exam: we can come not to stressed. However, the report should also give credit and not just "passed", because it"s a lot of work.» (Yes definetely)
- Took the pressure of the exam for good and bad.» (Yes definetely)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The continuous examination.»
- Lecturers :)»
- Computer assignment as a form of examination»
- Everything»
- The computer home assignments. They are a very good way to get everybody to start working straight from the start of the course. But there should only be 4 of them, or start earlier since the last handins were in the exam week. »
- computer assignments»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Nothing, the work load is high but manageable. »
- Project work. Too much work for it and no points for exam. Written examination could be eliminated if computer assignments are kept. In that case, the project work could be also a part of the examination and left as it is, since it is actually one of the best things about this course.»
- Nothing»
