Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

P, F

Examination

  • EXA1 - Examination, 7.5 credits, grading scale: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

The examination form will vary according to course content and student interest. Possible forms include for example a short research project, or a written overview of the literature in a specific area of multisensory perception and cross-modal interaction. Oral presentation is always part of the examination.

Other requirements for final grade

The student must give a 1-hour public seminar, and hand in a written report.

The seminar should:

  • give an overview of current trends in multisensory perception and cross-modal interaction
  • focus on methods and technology for the analysis and/or design of multisensory perception and cross-modal interaction
  • discuss advantages of and examples when leveraging multisensory perception and cross-modal interaction
