Examinationsformer och fordringar för godkänd kurs

The course examination will be made through oral presentation of two group

assignments:



1. the participants will present a study design in the field of animal motion using digital techniques. They will be asked to present an overview of possible techniques that can be used for their scientific question, discuss pros and cons and explain a suggestion for data analysis.



2. the participants will review and discuss another groups study design, choice of measuring methods and data analysis method.
