- I can not answer this question because I do not know the considered goals.» (?)
- It was of course hard to test everything in the exam, but I think the exam was a good selection of course topics. One thing: it is important that all students know, before the course starts, how the examination works and how important different parts are (i.e. written exam, project). After the projects were presented Alessandro awarded bonus points to some students by extending the maximum to 13 pts for the project. I understand that this was meant as extra praise for the presentations, but it should have been stated at the beginning of the course. As a student, time is limited and some might have chosen to not do a great project and instead focus on the exam because the project was not so many points. If they had known from the beginning that it would be 13 pts, then they might chosen differently.» (To some extent)
- The course covers a lot of topics, so it is hard to evaluate the students knowledge about them all.» (To some extent)
- The questions in the exam clearly was a well chosen subset of what we were supposed to learn. However, it depends on how harch it is corrected as well.» (Yes, definitely)
- But the exams from the previous three years seem to assess this very well.» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- The great teaching and help we got from Alessandro.»
- Alessandro. If more people had Alessandro"s attitude towards life and learning, the world would be a better place.»
- Alessandro»
- Studio exercises »
- all topics were interesting»
- Wavelets and everything which have with compression to do.»
- The projects»
- The great italian style of the lecture»
- All the contents of the course»
- The project was very good.»
- Teaching»
- The lecturer"s enthusiastic style of teaching should definitely be preserved! Also, the project work and Matlab exercises tried in class should be preserved as it helps to students to get along and understand better.»
- Wavelets »
- at least the teacher!»
- The atmosphere at the lecture that was very pleasant and makes students relax and willing to learn, should be preserved.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The lecture notes could be better. If you missed a lecture or wnat to study for the exam, it"s hard to know from the notes what you should know. »
- If there is a less talkative book that would be great. The notes should really be updated and polished.»
- Can improve on the lecture notes. Include more details and content in them.»
- Nothing comes to mind.»
- Include bonus points for project presentations from the beginning of the course.»
- I think maybe the lecture notes could get a little update.»
- ---»
- Dunno, maybe it would be nice to some more projects and not just one... but well, lets see how mine turned out first :)»
- Tougher exam»
- nothing»
- Maybe the compendium for the lessons»
- Maybe some addition to the "slides", they could have been more fleshed out.»
- exam question»
- Probably more guidance towards Matlab exercises for students who have weak background.»
- Some practical(Matlab) exercises using Wavelets would be very useful. »
- in my opinion, nothing: everything was adequate»
- Maybe it would be better that the professor use whiteboard much more, for me myself it was usually a little hard to follow all things that Alessandro was just speaking about and not writing or illustrating on the board because when teacher"s speaking lasts for a long time without stop for example for writing something on the board, I lose my concentration after a while.»
- Maybe some more material can be added, the lectures seemed a bit slow.»
- Nothin"»

16. Additional comments

- Grazie e arrivederci»
- Alessandro is a very fun and loving lecturer! »
- Suggestion: The deadline for the project reports should be friday the week before the oral presentations. Then the reports (at least those from the groups that will do the oral presentations) should be shared with all the other students so that they can read them before the presentations and get a basic understanding of the different projects. This would make it much easier to follow the presentations and participate in the following discussions.»
- I hope Alessandro will continue teaching his courses for many years to come.»
- Great course!»
- If you have taken courses in linear algebra, Fourier analysis and probability theory then this course is very easy.»
- Can"t blame Alessandro for going to Italy on holiday but his replacement was not great. Other than that a fantastic course with a fantastically committed examiner. Hard to beat. Thanks Alessandro! »
- ---»
- Thanks!»
- Very good teaching from Alessandro.»
- The professor spent a lot of time for helping out the student in each way and that was very appreciable. »
- NIL»
- Bravissimo»
- Thanks for your commitment with our learning »
- the course is supposed to be attended at least for the teacher: very good, the best i had till now»
