         Thank you for your participation in our little survey for the date of the midterm test. The run was close, but a slim majority has favored April 12, the Monday after the Easter break.

         The final test for this course was on May 26, a Wednesday. This date is the result of a survey among participants. Thank you for voting.

         36 participants have taken part in the final test. On May 31, there was a unit in which the correct answers for the test were discussed. Participants have been informed on their marks.
