Type of Assessment for UE in Q1

  • Oral examination
  • Written examination

Q1 UE Assessment Comments

This assessment test in Q1 (written examination) concerns the content of the learning activity "Descriptive statistics" (the score is denoted SD1 below). Evaluation is based on a written examination (100%).
Only in situations where a student has to take two exams at the same time, an oral examination could be envisaged.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q2

  • Oral Examination
  • Written examination

Q2 UE Assessment Comments

- If SD1 is equal to or greater than 10/20, SD1 can be kept and this assessment test in Q2 (written examination) only concerns the content of the learning activity "Probability theory"  (the obtained score is denoted CP1 below). The global score for the programme component is calculated as follows : global score = 0.5 * SD1 + 0.5 * CP1.

- If SD1 is lower than 10/20, this assessment test in Q2 (written examination) concerns the WHOLE content of the programme component "Statistics 1", that is to say the two learning activities "Descriptive statistics" (the score obtained for the learning activity "Descriptive statistics" is denoted SD2 below) and "Probability theory" (the score obtained for the learning activity "Probability theory" is denoted CP1 below). The global score for the programme component is calculated as follows: global score = 0.5 * SD2 + 0.5 * CP1.

- If SD1 is equal to or greater than 10/20 and that the student does not wish to keep it, this assessment test in Q2 (written examination) concerns the WHOLE content of the programme component "Statistics 1", that is to say the two learning activities "Descriptive statistics" (the score obtained for the learning activity "Descriptive statistics" is denoted SD2 below) and "Probability theory" (the score obtained for the learning activity "Probability theory" is denoted CP1 below). The global score for the programme component is calculated as follows : global score = 0.5 * SD2 + 0.5 * CP1.

Evaluation is based on a written examination (100%).
Only in situations where a student has to take two exams at the same time, an oral examination could be envisaged.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q3

  • Oral examination
  • Written examination

Q3 UE Assessment Comments

This assessment test in Q3 (written examination) concerns the WHOLE content of the programme component "Statistics 1", that is to say the two learning activities "Descriptive statistics" (the score obtained for the learning activity "Descriptive statistics" is denoted SD3 below) and "Probability theory" (the score obtained for the learning activity "Probability theory" is denoted CP2 below). The global score for the programme component is calculated as follows : global score = 0.5 * SD3 + 0.5 * CP2.

If the student has obtained a score equal to or greater than 10/20 for the learning activitiy "Descriptive statistics" or "Probability theory" at the assessment tests in Q1 or Q2, this score can be kept and be taken into account in the above computation of the global score (the student in that case does not present anymore the learning activity for which he has obtained the score equal to or greater than 10/20).  
 
Evaluation is based on a written examination (100%).
Only in situations where a student has to take two exams at the same time, an oral examination could be envisaged.
