The aim of this questionnaire is to get your feedback about the current situation and the way the course is handled. It is of course totally anonymous!

Please note that in all the proposed scenarios, the bonus take home midterm exam remains (worth 5%).

Needless to say that this questionnaire is totally anonymous, like the others.
