I have received many questions regarding how to use the group assignment case in the exam. Here are the main questions asked and the answers:

Q1: When we are using examples from our own project should we use the names of the systems that we were investigating or should we use generic names? Up until now I've personally only used "In our project ..." and not used any system names or even the name of the organization since I'm afraid that it could break anonymity of the exam. 

Q2: How specific can/should we be when referring to our projects this semester in the exam? Will the exam have different reviewers, so that we can refer to details in our case without worrying about that identifying us?

A3: You should prioritise the examples from the course material (lectures, pensum, seminar).


Q4: When you say that we don't have to define t...

Dear students,

considering the situation and the difficulty of getting access to interviews the requirements for the assignment 2 and 3 have changed. I have uploaded a new assignment description. The changes are the following:

The deadline for assignment 2 is postponed to 24th of April. Assignment 2 and 3 are now combined in a 'new' assignment 2.

The 'new' assignment 2 does not require an additional interview (not obligatory). 

The deadline for the final assignment has not changed: 08.05.
