Критерії оцінювання результатів навчання: Students' knowledge of the discipline is assessed by the following types of controls: 1) assessment of students' knowledge in practical classes; 2) Examination control. Assessment of students' knowledge during practical classes is carried out in the following forms: • survey of theoretical material; • assessment of performance of situational exercises and tasks during class; • evaluation of participation in discussions, summaries of the issues discussed in the practical session. For practical classes, the maximum number of points is assigned according to the following criteria: • survey - for a complete and thorough answer to a given question on the subject of the lesson; • performance of situational exercises and tasks - for the proposed correct algorithm (sequence) of solving the task; for knowledge of the theoretical foundations of the problem posed in the task; for mastering the formulas and mathematical methods necessary to solve the task; for the correct result obtained. • participation in discussions, summarizing the issues under consideration - for knowledge of the theoretical foundations of the problem, the ability to argue one's point of view, the ability to conduct a discussion correctly.
Порядок та критерії виставляння балів та оцінок: 100–88 points – (“excellent”); 87–71 points – (“good”); 70 - 50 points - ("satisfactory") ; 49-26 points - ("not certified" with the possibility of retaking the semester control) is awarded for ignorance of a significant part of the educational material of the component, significant errors in answering questions, inability to apply theoretical provisions when solving practical problems; 25-00 points - ("unsatisfactory" with mandatory re-study) is awarded for ignorance of a significant part of the educational material of the component, significant errors in answering questions, inability to navigate when solving practical problems, ignorance of the main fundamental provisions.
