[04/24/19]   Q:
A would like to try examination questions. What is an enrolment key to AAV0060?

Enrolment key is AAV0060. After self-enrolment, wait please for the teacher to approve your entrance, and then launch TRY.

[03/14/19]   Q:
It’d be nice if the slides could also serve as a study form.

I guess the final assessment has to open your real knowledge and understanding. It might not be based on the lecture slides only – the list of textbooks is published on the Moodle page and in the first lecture presentation. The slides recall only what is telling about in your lecture notes.

There won’t be an exam? The only way to get a grade in your half (Supply Converters) is by doing the quiz?

Different forms of exams exist. It does not necessary involve writing or oral explanations of studied topics. In the present case, you are invited to answer 10 questions. The full list of questions is published in Moodle from the beginning of the semester and clarified at lectures. The consultations continue until the semester end of course.

The final course grade will be an average of your half (Supply Converters) and the half (Control of Machines), which is independent from yours?

The final grade will depend on the results from both parts. It may be fifty-fifty or forty-sixty, we did not decide jet. As well, we look forward to hearing your views. The second part of the course is not separated from the first one. It is based on the first part, because supply converters are required to control machines.

How many times can I take the quiz? I really want a 5 from your class.

You may take this exam every 10 days, until the semester end. Therefore, you can achieve your goal if you really want.

During the quiz/exam, will we be able to use our materials? Or will it be without any materials (computer, notes, etc)?

Without any materials (copies, notes, computer, phone, internet, etc.). The grade depends on your knowledge only (memory, numeracy, thinking ability).


[03/13/19]   Q:
What is my grade in Supply Converters?

1. Please, summarise the scores of all your quizzes and bonuses and round up this sum.
2. If you are not satisfied, learn more from textbooks and lecture slides and try your knowledge in Moodle (AAV0060 Quizzes/TRY).
3. Once you will feel your readiness, write me to decide the date of your demonstration on the laboratory PC. The new value will replace your current grade. If you are not satisfied again, return to item 2.

All the best ;)
