Smaller project assignments are often assigned in the early years of the degree programme. They make up roughly one-third to half of the study time per quarter: between 5 and 7 credits. The assignments are defined, the most important specifications are set, the underlying knowledge is mainly prescribed and the approach is also roughly defined. The assessment is mainly focused on the realisation of the results within the designated frameworks and with correct use being made of the underlying knowledge. Process assessment is conducted, but as the students' autonomy is limited, this is generally not too detailed.
Large project assignments - which are mainly given to advanced students – take up between half and three-quarters of the study time per quarter: 8 to 12 credits. They address a complex professional problem, demanding an autonomous, investigative and systematic solution from the student group. To a substantial degree, the group must determine the specifications that the end result must comply with and the underlying knowledge itself. The supervision is mainly process-oriented. The assessment ties in with these factors, focusing on three aspects: (1) the quality of the end product, (2), the knowledge each student possesses, and (3) the manner in which you and your fellow students cooperate in order to bring this project to a successful conclusion.
The project assignment assesses whether you:
Naturally, your client's assessment of the relevance and applicability of the end product is also important.
The assessment takes place at various moments:
During the project:
The product assessment documents the students' professionalisation. The process assessment ascertains whether every student has made a relevant contribution. The knowledge assessment tests whether all students have learned enough. The process assessment and knowledge test also ensure that the 'freeloaders' (who piggy-back on other people's efforts) and 'duckers' (who participate very little, if at all) are identified.
