Problem modules

Reflection and self-assessment

The reflection is done in a second submission of each module, after the follow-up lecture. Please follow the I, II, III structure in your answer!


a) Did you have your checkpoint meeting for this module?

b) Did both of you attend the compulsory follow-up lecture? If you already talked to us about this, please explain.

c) If you were asked to talk to a supervisor about the main submission, who did you talk to?


Reflect on your experiences from working with the module and try to make the most out of them. You are also encouraged to discuss your experiences with other groups.

If you reflect around individual problems (which is good), try to also draw general conclusions that may be helpful for you going forward in this course and long-term.

(Time spent in the reflection is time well spent, as it maximizes the learning from the significant effort you already made when working with the problems.)

As the answer, give some well motivated points summarizing your reflections.

For DIT856 we expect a careful and well-reasoned reflection, in two parts:

a) Write brief comments on what you learned from each problem. This can be about the specific problem, about mathematical thinking (reasoning, modelling, problem solving), how to explain or work, or any or other aspect.

b) What are your main general learnings of this module, that you can bring with you long after this course has ended?


Give a single assessment for the whole module and motivate with a sentence or two. This is for your own practice.

Use the scale "insufficient/sufficient/good/very good", or a combination such as "between good and very good" or "good or very good". Use the grading criteria we have suggested, or clearly motivate your own.

(We as teachers will then set the grade for this module. We think it is better if you are able to make a fair assessment rather than an inflated one.)

(SELF-CHECK) Do the self-check also for the reflection!

To submit the reflection, just append to the end of your main submission and submit the whole document again! Update the total hours to also include the reflection.
