Assessment criteria

Assessment criteria - grade 1 and 2

Adequate (1): The student is familiar with the basic knowledge and terminology but in dimensioning of basic beam structures the skills are clearly inadequate. The student can solve simple basic problems in an adequate manner.

Satisfactory (2): The student is familiar with the basic knowledge and terminology of stresses and strains but in dimensioning of basic beam structures the skills are inadequate. The student can satisfactorily solve simple basic problems.

Satisfactory (2): The student is familiar with the basic knowledge and terminology of stresses and strains but in dimensioning of basic beam structures the skills are inadequate. The student can satisfactorily solve simple basic problems.

Assessment criteria - grade 3 and 4

Good (3): The student is familiar with the knowledge of dimensioning beam structures and can apply the knowledge acquired to simple structures to solve tensions and strains. The student also understands those situations which require more precise and profound strength inspection.

Very good (4): The student masters the basic knowledge of dimensioning beam structures and can apply the knowledge acquired to basic structures to solve tensions and strains. The student also understands those situations which require more precise and profound strength inspection.

Very good (4): The student masters the basic knowledge of dimensioning beam structures and can apply the knowledge acquired to basic structures to solve tensions and strains. The student also understands those situations which require more precise and profound strength inspection.

Assessment criteria - grade 5

Excellent (5): The student masters the essential knowledge of dimensioning beam structures and can apply the knowledge in to structures to solve tensions and strains. The student also understands those situations which require more precise and profound strength inspection.
