- More sometimes depending on how busy we are that week» (Around 30 hours/week)

- Duggas are not the best way to assess peoples learning they require studying which we do not have time for. I would advise if there is 3 dugga there may as well just be a formal exam. Or, each group member should hand in a individual reflective report outlining what they have learned.» (No, not at all)
- we have already studied the most of the content in earlier years. this would be seen as pre-knowledge» (To some extent)
- Duggas only based on lectures, not course literature.» (To some extent)
- Hard to answer before course is over. Why is the evaluation Now and not at the end?» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)
- It was not very accurate to say that the duggas are mainly about the book but also about the lectures when they actually almost only covered the lectures.» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- Have already applied this kind of theory in project before, so there was not much new information.» (Small extent)
- The lecture pdfs are very good and easy to understand, but the U&E book isn"t that good. In a way I feel it"s kinda distanced from the lectures. » (Large extent)

- Reading instructions should be handed out earlier. Easier to plan and study in time - not only other courses may clash, but also outside activities, e.g. moving to another appartment....» (Rather badly)
- Handouts took time in the beginning, as well as information and e.g reading instructions. Dugga results very slow. Could have been good to get before the next dugga in order to know the level...» (Rather badly)
- It is nice if you always can get the ppt before class» (Rather well)
- Good pingpong page and the facebook page also makes it easier to ask questions and comment. Levandowski has been good at shortening the distance between students and course administration. » (Very well)
- Good Course Memo with a lot of useful information!» (Very well)

- It"s hard to say because half the course is left» (Adequate)
- Somewhat high due to duggas and clashes with other courses. » (Adequate)
- High pressure from the company to deliver concept long before the course milestones. » (Too high)
- It might have to do with the fact that we want to achieve something of a higher level than it was meant to be, but keeping the project going and at the same time attending lectures, studied for duggas, prepare for seminars and writing refelction report made it hard to focus on the actual project 100 %. » (Too high)

- I don"t like the idea of integrating the basic knowledge in the lectures and having tests alongside with the project. I think that it would have been better to ensure that everyone has the approriate knowledge before the project starts so that time can be dedicated to the project. The idea of having a big project in cooperation with a company is however a very educational experience by itself! » (Fair)
- The idea of the Project Development project is very good. However i had much higher expectations and i am a bit disappointed in how the course has been managed and executed.» (Fair)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The lectures»
- The course PM and its structure. »
- Hard to say before the course is over»
- Lego Mindstorm lab»
- working with a outside company, having helpful supervisors, the amount of lectures, the concept workshop, the course literature»
- The concept workshop»
- The concept gate seminar!»
- Concept gate seminar Concept workshop - but later»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Have more new knowledge instead of just repeating from earlier years.»
- more lectures»
- Regarding the duggas, if you are given 150 pages to read to study for the duggas, it would be preferable if there were at least some questions testing if you read them. This was not the case, there were only questions on the lectures.»
- some of the lectures are "too easy". »
- Hard to say before the course is over»
- You shouldn"t be more than two persons working together on the robot, three is too many»
- change the duggas to one formal exam or an individual assignment»
- The lectures should be more synchronized with the practical work that would be going on in the project. »
- Reading instructions should be handed out earlier. Easier to plan and study in time - not only other courses may clash, but also outside activities, e.g. moving to another appartment....»
- I think the Concept Seminar in January was a little too early»
- Dugga results should be given earlier so that you know what grade you need for the coming one. The reading instructions for the duggas should be given much earlier. The lectures should be on a more advanced level. The concept workshop should be held later in the study period. »
- Dugga layout. Studying the project development master should mean that you already have some knowledge in basic methodology. Spending this many hours on lectures, literature and duggas took a lot of time away from the actual project that is the main point in this course. Have some type of controlled level for supervisors, some groups have good supervisors and some are left with not so good supervisors. Concept Workshop needs to be postponed to later in the course in order to render benefits. Lectures are way to basic for master level. Depending on background sure, some might need it but for those with prior background within these areas it does not feel like a master program. If there is a specified time for presentations, make sure it is kept. Why should some groups keep there presentations short while other groups can talk for much longer periods and that is fine to, does not seem fair for those of us who try to follow the rules. Supervisors should be well aware of the course goals and have read the PM.»

16. Additional comments

- no»
- The reading directions should be handed out in the beginning of the course so that you can plan your studying, not 1,5 week ahead of the test so you are forced to read them then and can not read ahead and plan.»
- Jag kommer från Industriell ekonomi och för mig har den här första tiden varit lite förvirrande. Kursen marknadsfördes för oss som att vi "I:are" skulle ha en given plats i projektgruppen. Jag känner inte riktigt att jag har hittat min plats än. Det är mycket ny information och nya sätt att arbeta och skriva rapporter på. Det känns inte riktigt heller som att kursen är anpassad för någon som är helt ny på området. Detta gör iförsig inte så mycket det är ett kul och intressant ämne oavsätt. Hur detta skulle kunna göras bättre är svårt att svara på. Jag tror dock det hade underlättat om I:are fick vara med i projektet från början (de 3 hp innan jul)»
- Love the project, but all in all i thought i was getting a project course, "learn by doing", and i am a bit disappointed on the amount of time spent on other things than the project and the level of that knowledge.»
