4.4.1 Thesis assessment criteria

Thesis assessment criteria

A written thesis is evaluated on the scale of 0–5, based on Jamk’s common assessment criteria. Thesis assessment is based on both the process and the output. The assessment targets include the topic, knowledge base, implementation, results and discussion, and reporting.
