Assesment methods:
During the semester three exams in written form will be realised. Each exam has the total of 20 point that can be achieved. To achieve an A grade at least 55 points have to be reached, for B grade at least 50 points have to be gathered, for C grade at least 45 points have to be achieved, for grade D the loves limit is 39 points and for the E grade the limit is 34 points.
The course ends with an oral exam by which overall 30 points can be gained. To achieve an A grade at least 28 points have to be reached, for B grade at least 25 points have to be gathered, for C grade at least 23 points have to be achieved, for grade D the loves limit is 20 points and for the E grade the limit is 17 points.
The final grade will be calculated from both the written and oral exam. Note that the point achieved from the three written exams are multiplied by a coefficient of 0,5 and after this multiplication the resulting value is added to the point (unaltered) gained from the oral exam. To achieve an A grade at least 55 points have to be reached, for B grade at least 50 points have to be gathered, for C grade at least 45 points have to be achieved, for grade D the loves limit is 39 points and for the E grade the limit is 34 points. Credits (index points) won’t be given to the those students who have achieved less than 25 points from the written exams.

 
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Completing the subject the student acquires knowledge of general metrology and testing. He/she becomes familiar with the general concepts in these areas. He/she becomes familiar with the layout and organization of metrology in Slovakia and abroad (EU and worldwide), with organizations and their mission in the field of metrology and testing and also with legal metrology and testing. He/she acquires a general knowledge of measuring instruments, their characteristics, principles of treatment and evaluation of measurements. He/she will be able to manage procedure for determining the uncertainties in measurements and measurement results. He/she will be able to formulate and solve complex problems of determining the uncertainties in measuring and ensuring follow-up instruments. He/she will be able to analyze and synthesize issues of consistency and accuracy of measurements.

Get knowledge from basic metrology. Get knowledge from legal issues of metrology in the EU and Slovakia. Control procedures for determining the uncertainties in the measurement and determination of the measurement result. Being able to analyze and synthesize issues of ensuring uniformity and accuracy of measurements. Being able to formulate and solve complex problems in determining the of measurements uncertainty and in the design of regulation and control circuits.
