Goals and goal fulfilment

The course syllabus states the course goals (learning objectives) in terms of learning outcomes, i.e., knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired by the student during the course.

3. How understandable are the course goals (learning objectives)?

8 svarande

I have not seen/read the goals»0 0%
The goals are difficult to understand»0 0%
The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer»4 50%
The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn»4 50%

Genomsnitt: 3.5

- The depth of knowledge maybe is difficult to grasp. The wiki assignment seem to fall out of the goals.» (The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer)
- They are clearly described but do they match the course contents? I don"t think so.» (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)

4. Are the goals (learning objectives) reasonable considering your background and the number of credits?

Answer this this question and the succeeding one, only if you do know the course goals.

8 svarande

No, the goals are set too low»0 0%
Yes, the goals seem reasonable»7 87%
No, the goals are set too high»1 12%

Genomsnitt: 2.12

- The goals are not really reasonable, it seems like you need more knowledge about some topics than what have been presented in the course.» (No, the goals are set too high)

5. Did the examination, together with exercises and the lab, assess whether you have reached the goals (learning objectives)?

9 svarande

No, not at all»1 11%
To some extent»6 66%
Yes, definitely»2 22%
I don"t know/have not been examined yet»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2.11

- The lab and exercisses were over all great. Too many questions in the exam that didn’,t test the understanding of active safety and its functions but rather the students ability to memorise all information. Its ok with 1 or 2 such question just to make it hard to earn the highest grade but this was ridicules, especially compared with last year’,s exams. » (No, not at all)
- exercises and the lab was quite ok. but i think in final examination some quetions were too detail hich is not very easy to remember.» (To some extent)
- More focus should have been on the big FCW assignment, the wiki does not do much for learning about active safety, the exercises were quite good but could have been integrated into the FCW lab.» (To some extent)
- The calculation part (part 3) was good. The multi-choice questions (part 1) were not good because what was right or wrong was arguable. Part 2 should be improved so you can understand how much you are expected to write. Is 3 sentences or 5 pages sufficient?» (To some extent)

- » (Adequate) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
- Well, Marco seemed to like the course and the teaching a lot. The problems are bascially: A) We have other courses going on in parallel with this course, so unfortunately we cannot spend all our time on it. So there is no point in having mandatory stuff for no reason. If the students are interested and able to attend, they will attend. Some students may have reasons not to attend all lectures. So that should be up to each and everyone to decide. C) There were way to many tasks in the course.» (Adequate) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
- A very clear/defined course-PM must exist. It should be stated what is to be expected throughout the course, prior to the start of the course. There were way to many tasks in the course.» (Adequate) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

- I would say all the exercises where you get a better glimpse of how to use MATLAB should definitely be kept for next year.But still it is a lot of work to do.(when combined with lab assignment)» (CAN (Marco), Lidar (Jonas), Real-traffic data FOT (Marco), Kalman Filtering (Azra), 8-truck data (Marco))
- Good with small matlab excercises that only take one or a couple of hours, but even better with discussions for those subjects that permit such an excercise.» (Accident reconstruction (Mikael), CAN (Marco), Lidar (Jonas), Driver Cognition (Kip), Real-traffic data FOT (Marco))
- CAN exercise could be included in the lab.» (Lidar (Jonas), Cooperative Systems (Marco), Driver Cognition (Kip), 8-truck data (Marco))
- Combine CAN with the lab.» (Accident reconstruction (Mikael), CAN (Marco), Lidar (Jonas), Driver Cognition (Kip))
- Use the exercises as teaching sessions instead of examinations so that you actually learn something useful to be used in the FCW lab.» (CAN (Marco), Lidar (Jonas), Driver Cognition (Kip), Kalman Filtering (Azra))
- The first and most important thing is to remove the damn wiki-exercies. Those exercises were just waste of time.» (CAN (Marco), Lidar (Jonas), Kalman Filtering (Azra))

Genomsnitt: 3.55

- Basically a literature review and we have done that in the majority of all courses the last 4 years at chalmers. It’,s good that we were able to give an oral presentation of the assignment, otherwise it had been quiet useless from a learning perspective. » (Adequate)
- Shouldn"t be a wiki but a normal literature review also it took a lot of time beside the other excercises in the course.» (Adequate)
- Unfortunately i find it a bit unnecessary and time consuming. you still have to spend a lot of time even just to correct formatting issues when you publish your report on the webpage.It was ok for traffic and vehicle safety lecture, because there you share the work in group. But for this lecture, you work individually and have to handle eveything on your own. Besides, you also have to give feedback on two other students work, and then you have to present your own critisims. This whole process feels a bit odd to me.» (Poor)
- few are already done in the lecture. » (Poor)
- Useless, why write a wiki-page about something that is already presented in the course by "an expert" on the subject. It makes no sense what so ever. Its not enough to say that this assignment is useful to learn how to make a wiki-page, write a "report" and use references, give feedback and to improve presentation skills. These are, in my point of view, "skills" that one can assume the students already should possess after 4 years of university studies. Even if that"s not always the case it"s not necessary for a course like this with an already normal/high workload (according to last year"s class) to include an assignment like this.» (Poor)
- It takes unnecessarily much time and should be removed for next year. The peer review and wiki stuff was just a useless repetition of the task in VTS (which was a prerequisite for this course)» (Poor)

- I for one used it to study for the exam» (Yes, definitely)
- I don"t think everyone puts the same effort on the work so all the materials might not be content-full. But ofcourse still would be enough to provide some general information which would be fair to learn» (Maybe)
- Why not...» (Maybe)
- If they are literature reviews, they are not complete, maybe they could be available for students to keep building on to.» (No)

- I really found it teaching and felt that I was dealing with something valuable, a real life example. But still i should mention that it took a lot of time to deal with data...really» (Completely)
- More focus could be on developing a algorithm instead of 99% of the time going into data manipulation» (Completely)
- Excellent, the best thing in the whole course.» (Completely)
- Great lab, should have had a little more focus on teaching possible ways to complete the lab. Now a lot of time was wasted on searching the Matlab help for useful commands. I"m not saying the task should be solved for us but it was just time consuming which could have been spent on creating better data sets and algorithms. » (Completely)
- The lab was one of the best things with the course. If you just could remove the other unnecessary stuff (wiki and some of the other exercies) one would be able to spend more time working with the lab.» (Completely)
- I would like to see more lectures about algorithms and especially real-time algorithm implementations. » (To some extent)
- Good to be aware of "real" problems but it did take a lot of time, so maybe it was helpful in order to get a notion of a future job.» (To some extent)

22. Did the work load to complete the lab correspond to the significance it has for the final grade?

9 svarande

Completely»1 11%
To some extent»5 55%
Not at all (too much work)»3 33%

Genomsnitt: 2.22

- The workload for this lab was more or less up to the students in the lab groups to decide dependent on the level of ambition. I believe the lab covers the main topics in active safety (driver behavior modeling, data processing, algorithm design, evaluation...) and therefor it should be a greater part of the final grade.» (To some extent)
- I think you should let the lab affect the final grade a little bit more actually.» (To some extent)
- It should have bigger significance for the final grade.» (Not at all (too much work))

- Remove the wiki assignment, it has very low learning value compared with the time it takes to perform well. Most other exercises were useful and gave good and much needed matlab practise. » (Too high)
- It"s not reasonable to include so many different MANDATORY tasks in a course and at the same time cover so many different areas. Its a 7.5 credit course in active safety, not signal processing or whatever. The workload was normal or high last year, and it seems like it was even higher this year? » (Too high)
