Evaluation Methods and Policy 【Assessment method】
Determined based on the report (20 points) and the end-of-semester exam (80 points).
A mid-term exam may not be administered due to timetabling issues.
【Assessment criteria】
Assessment criteria and policy are drawn from "Assessment criteria and policy" in the current version of the Faculty of Agriculture Student Handbook.
Course Requirements This course is compulsory for students taking Materials for Construction/Experiments in Environmental Geotechnics.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) Students are not expected to read in advance, but you are encouraged to review the lecture by solving practice problems independently in your own time.
