The test is randomly generated (10 questions) covering issues of Statistics A and is limited by time of 20 minutes. A maximum of 20 points can be obtained from the test, required minimum is 10 points. The test can be repeated and the highest number of points (best attempt) is counted for the final evaluation of the course. b) Final (comprehensive) self-test This test checks students theoretical knowledge of the subject. The test is randomly generated (10 questions) covering the whole issue of the subject and is limited by time of 20 minutes.
