Elaboration of the evaluation criteria and methods, and acquainting students with the evaluation (applies in this implementation): 

3D Animation- course has two parts:

1. The general teaching (September-February, roughly)

2. The Spring animation project (March-May, roughly)

- Student can get 6 credits from each of these.

- To get full credits from the first part a student has to, in addition to normal participation and homework, do three to four compulsory animation exercises with student's own character, which has been built during the course.

- To get full credits from the project part
a student has to create a simple one-scene animation (not a full film).
This can be from one's own subject or from a subject given by the
teacher. The project consists of writing the script, storyboarding, designing, building and animating the character and the set, lighting, rendering and editing the piece together.
