Goals and goal fulfilment

The course syllabus states the course goals 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?

11 svarande

I have not seen/read the goals»3 27%
The goals are difficult to understand»0 0%
The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer»5 45%
The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn»3 27%

Genomsnitt: 2.72

- This is always a tricky question. Before you have took the course, the goals are hard to understand, but once you have completed it, they are easy to understand.» (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)

4. Are the goals 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.

9 svarande

No, the goals are set too low»0 0%
Yes, the goals seem reasonable»9 100%
No, the goals are set too high»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2

5. Did the examination assess whether you have reached the goals?

10 svarande

No, not at all»2 20%
To some extent»2 20%
Yes, definitely»5 50%
I don"t know/have not been examined yet»1 10%

Genomsnitt: 2.5

- The examination tested how much one can learn by heart, rather than how well you have understood the course.» (No, not at all)
- I do not really understand why you should know so manny derivations by heart. It is more interesting to show that you have captured the concepts and know how to apply them.» (To some extent)
- I miss a basic formula sheet, When deriving the equation ore explaining the conditions it is hard to remember the formula. In my opinion a basic formula sheet will be helpful if you dont have the knowledge in material mechanincs.» (Yes, definitely)

Genomsnitt: 2.54

- The lectures could be a bit clearer. Sometimes the lecture and the pre-made notes are not in the same order and that makes it a bit messy to see whats happening...» (Large extent)

7. To what extent has the course literature and other material been of help for your learning?

Genomsnitt: 3.36

- You easily miss news since it is not possible to have a feed of updates from the homepage. PingPong provides that feature. » (Rather well)
- All course material were always easy to get. Very good course page!» (Very well)

9. What is your opinion of the compendium and lecture notes?

Genomsnitt: 2.9

- The lecture notes could capture more of the theory and not only equations.» (Rather bad)
- The compendium is very good, not to extensive and writen in a very good way but the notes could be better...» (Rather good)

- 4 hours lecture with pure overhead slides is maybe not the most effective way.» (Rather bad)
- Lecture presentations was presented in a way that made it easy to understand most of the time. But sometimes it got a bit out of sync with the notes.» (Very good)

11. What is your opinion of the computer assginments?

Genomsnitt: 3.36

- The reports could have been broaden a bit by adding derivations of needed algorithms. In some cases it was a little bit too much copy-past in order to get the code up and running.» (Rather good)
- The difficulty of the assignments are just about perfect. Programing was not to hard or to easy and the results are easy to understand...» (Very good)

12. What is your opinion of dugga and written exam concept?

11 svarande

Very bad»0 0%
Rather bad»2 18%
Rather good»4 36%
Very good»5 45%
No opinion»0

Genomsnitt: 3.27

- The dugga is a very good way for examination of the theory in the course. But the exam is not. The best solution is to remove the exam and grade the assignments instead. Or consider the possibility to have written formulas for the models and have a more problem based exam where one identify errors and explain model behaviuor rather than learning questions by heart.» (Rather bad)
- See Q5.» (Rather good)
- The dugga is really good I think!» (Very good)
- Perhaps, for next time, it should be allowed to have around 3-4 self-written pages during the written exam. » (Very good)

Genomsnitt: 3.63

- Not because of this course but the other course was organized in a very bad way...» (Too high)
- My two courses summed up in 4 projects, 2 duggas and 2 exams. Deadlines where often very close to one and other leaving little time for studies apart from all different examinations.» (Too high)

Summarizing questions

16. What is your general impression of the course?

11 svarande

Poor»1 9%
Fair»1 9%
Adequate»3 27%
Good»6 54%
Excellent»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 3.27

- Decent course but i miss more realistic examples, what methods work and dont work for different cases etcetera.» (Adequate)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- assignments and the dugga are very good.»
- Computer assignments, dugga»
- The computer assignments and the course structure, the dugga helps a lot for the written exam»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Make another type of written examn.»
- The concept of free energy and dissipation could be outlined a little bit more earlier in the course since these are key stones in further derivations for all models discussed. Perhaps a template model could be discussed, what are the needed equations in order to get results such as stress response etc.»
- Introduce a basic formula sheet»
- It is a very theoric course, therefore, taking 4 consecutive lectures is hard»
