Assessment methods and criteria: Assessment methods: 1. Current control of lectures (without scoring) as a frontal or selective individual oral examination of students in the previously presented material, especially in the sections of the course that are necessary to understand the topic of the lecture being read, or to establish the degree of mastering the material of the lecture delivered. 2. Current control of laboratory work in the form of an individual survey. 3. Written review. 4. Oral examination in the form of an interview. 5. Test verification. Distribution of semester control points: 8 laboratory works of 5 points each make 40 points of current control; the 60 semester semester control consists of a written (30 points) and an oral (30 points) component.
