Exercise Part

Mandatory registration until Mar 09.

Entry test

The mandatory TUWEL entry test will be available only from Fri Mar 10 to Sun Mar 12 (00:00-23:55, three submissions possible, last submission counts). Everybody who takes the entry test will receive a certificate (i.e., it is not possible to unregister after the entry test). If you stop participating after taking the entry test, you will receive a negative certificate.

Checkmark lists and solution discussion

  • Mode: Checkmark lists and upload of the exercise solutions in TUWEL as well as an online solution discussion of 1 hour in groups of 3 students (students must be able to present and explain their solutions and background); details and specific times are announced via TUWEL
  • Evaluation: exercise discussions are evaluated with 0-15 points; this is weighted with the percentage of checked examples and rounded to the next integer.

3 exercise sheets

  • Sheet 1: Search
  • Sheet 2: Learning and Neural Networks
  • Sheet 3: CSP, Planning, and Making Simple Decisions


Vorlesungsteil mit Frontalvortrag; Übungsteil mit selbständiger Erarbeitung von Aufgaben und Präsentation der Lösungen.

Exercise part

  • The entry test is totalling 5 pts.
  • The 3 exercise sheets with the according discusion are totalling 15 pts.
  • Total pts: 20
  • Required infrastructure: stable internet connection, device with webcam and microphone.

Lecture part

  • Written closed book exam on paper in presence mode, with a possible fallback to online (in which, a scan of the solution must be uploaded to TUWEL).
  • Required infrastructure for an online exam: stable internet connection, device with webcam and microphone, either a printer or a second device to view a PDF, and a scanner or camera with software to generate a single PDF of the written exam.
  • Total pts: 80

Total sum of points for lecture and exercise part: 100

Zero tolerance for unfair practice (e.g., plagiarism, copied solutions, ...). All involved persons will be fined with 0 pts. (You may get a negative certificate).


Requirements for a positive certificate:

  • at least 3 points for the entry test; and
  • at least 40 points for the written final exam; and
  • at least 51 points in total.

The course will be graded as follows:

  • < 51 pts: N5 (Nicht Genügend)
  • >= 51 pts: G4 (Genügend)
  • >= 63 pts: B3 (Befriedigend)
  • >= 75 pts: U2 (Gut)
  • >= 88 pts: S1 (Sehr Gut)

Exercise sheets and solution discussions:

  • Due to the above criteria, points from exercise sheets are not strictly necessary for a positive grade. However, note that without exercise points it is harder the reach the required overall number of points. Moreover, working out the exercise sheets is also recommended as a preparation for the exam. Belated submission of exercises (e.g. after you have written a positive exam but did not reach the required overall number of points) is not possible.
  • NO WASTE OF SLOTS: While participation in the exercise part is optional, registrations for solution discussions are still binding. That is, it is not mandatory to register, but IF you decide to register for a solution discussion, THEN it is mandatory to show up (unless you can prove unpredictable and unavoidable obstacles such as illness). No-show after a registration without plausible excuse has consequences (see section on "Exams and Certificates").

Exams and Certificates:

  • There are no mandatory exams in front of committees. Instead, students have five regular attempts (i.e., you can get up to 5 certificates). However, for technical reasons (and to warn students) TISS does not allow students to register themselves for for fourth or fifth attempt to take the exam. Please send us a short message to register.
  • We provide 4 exam dates, you can participate in arbitrary many (unless you already collected 5 certificates in total). A certificate is issued for every attempt except for first negative one.
    (Legal background: In a VU we have to provide 2 chances to pass the exam and issue one certificate for these two chances. The 3rd and 4th attempt are a gesture of goodwill and count as fast-track repetition of the whole course.)
  • Those who waste solution discussion slots (registration and no-show without acceptable excuse) are granted only the legal minimum of 2 attempts (i.e., there is no goodwill in these cases); after the second failure they have to repeat the whole course next year.
  • By written exams an additional oral question part may be possible.

Exam reviewing:

There are no special dates for reviewing graded exams. Reviewing is possible whenever the secretariat is open (see website).
