The course assessment is based on five assignments and a voluntary written
exam. The assignments will account for max 85 points and the written
exam for 15 points. This means that you need to dedicate a considerable amount
of time to assignments (outside the lectures) during the course -- the expected
workload of the course is 135 hours. The assignments have been designed so that
they develop different skills Earth observation experts need: writing skills,
data analysis skills, modeling skills, presenting skills, … A minimum of 50
points is required to pass the course.
There is a possibility to earn up to 15 bonus points from small extra assignments.
If you hand in an assignment late, five points per day will be deducted from the points you would have obtained had you handed in the assignment on time.
