Assessment:
The project report is assessed and counts for 3/4 of the final grade. If several students collaborate on a single report, it must be possible to identify their individual contributions. Every student gives a presentation, presenting either a part of a collaborative project or an individual project. The presentation is assessed and counts 1/4 of the final grade.
