In this page we included the
evaluation form anonymously compiled by the
participants to evaluate the quality of our course. Answers submitted with
numbers from 1 (No) to 4 (Yes) have been included in the following statistics
calculated by R. The evaluation form was compiled by 14 participants which rated
the course with an average score of 3.5 over 4.
The received positive and negative comments will be published soon.
