Goals and goal fulfilment

To some extent»8 61%
Yes, definitely»4 30%
I don"t know/have not been examined yet»1 7%

Genomsnitt: 2.46

- I think that in order to fully assess if a student has well understood most of the course material, there needs to be some kind of exam.» (To some extent)

Genomsnitt: 2.35

- Only some extent, but this has to do with that I tend to learn most when studying on my own.» (Some extent)

- Didn´,t buy it» (Small extent)

8. How well did the course administration, web page, handouts etc work?

14 svarande

Very badly»2 14%
Rather badly»6 42%
Rather well»4 28%
Very well»2 14%

Genomsnitt: 2.42

- Everything was to late. » (Very badly)
- A lot of trouble with the theoretical assignment... but hopefully nothing that will occur next time» (Very badly)
- The excercises should be available a couple of days prior to lab sessions so one can prepare the labs. The theory assignment didn"t show up at all. Both should have been prepared by the teacher before the couse started.» (Rather badly)
- For example, computer exercises should be uploaded before the exercise starts.» (Rather badly)
- It took too long to get notes up on the page. One part of the exsamination never came up. One week is too little time for the types of hand ins given» (Rather badly)
- Documents for the labs and the theory assignment should have been up earlier, if at all.» (Rather badly)
- It was not really clear from start how things were going to be.» (Rather badly)
- The only thing that could be improved that I can think of right now is that the texts for the exercises could be up one day before so you could read it through. It is nice if the four hours can be used in the most efficient way» (Very well)

- It was a little too concentrated towards the end of the course and the assignments didn"t show up until to late. Much of the teaching required for the home assignments didn"t happen until very late in the course.» (High)
- The home assignments (especially the first two) are very difficult. The information needed for each task is provided very late in relation to the amount of time they take to solve. » (High)
- But in a good way!» (High)

- To bad Courseadministration. Notering Wasén dont in time. » (Fair)
- Better coordination between the teachers whould help. Following a text book on the subject would also help self studying.» (Adequate)
- Could be much better though! You can clearly see the potential, both examiners clearly know what their talking about.» (Adequate)
- I"m glad I took the course , it succeeds in giving a deeper understanding of DFT.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Handins. But the rasks sound get up on the homepage much earlier. »
- Focus on computer assignments in examination.»
- Most things were great! :)»
- The structure of the course with home assignements.»
- The coding exercises, as they were very instructive. »
- Ex 1 and 2»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Ciourese administration»
- Everyone who attended has taken solid state physics and computational physics. Build upon that! More lectures early in the course, fewer towards the end. Better possibilities to prepare the lab sessions.»
- Perhaps cut out some of the theory and instead dig deeper into a few methods. Show more examples! And perhaps have one lecture on Python?»
- Move more lectures to the beginning of the course, spread the home assignments better and remove one or more so that there are not double handins every week. Take a look at Computational Physics for examples of how this COULD be done.»
- Lab-PM earlier so one can prepare.»
- I think the lectures about pseudopotentials and the PAW method should be made a bit more basic and accessible, since I remember that alot of students had trouble understanding this rather tough matter. Considering the home assignments, it seems that some (i.e. the silicon exercise) are quite tougher than others, which is unfair since all exercises have the same weight. Also, the week of the project report deadline and presentation lies before the final week of the home assignments. This means that students doing the first three assignments + one project are, in a way, only given one week for the project, whereas they should be given two.»
- Time for ex 2.»

16. Additional comments

- Too poor administration in this course. But the contents of the course are quite good. »
- DFT is still a "black box". Would have liked to know more about how it is implemented, not just a survey of the topic.»
- Great course! Would be cool with a course that continue where this end»
- A very good course but the administrative part could work better.»
