Izrada i prezentacija seminarskog rada (S) pokazano razumijevanje znanstvenog rada čini 70%, a prezentacija 30% ocjene seminarskog rada
Test znanja 1 Studentu je omogućena provjera znanja tijekom održavanja nastave kroz dva testa znanja. Test znanja 1 obuhvaća anatomska građa vegetativnih i generativnih organa te složene mehanizme regulacije rasta i razvoja vinove loze i njihove ovisnosti o okolišnim čimbenicima. Pitanja su otvorenog tipa i ispituju poznavanje činjenica i sposobnost njihovog povezivanja. 7. tjedan nastave Studenti koji polože Test znanja 2 mogu pristupiti ispravku Testa znanja 1 prvi tjedan po završetku nastave
Test znanja 2 Test znanja 2 obuhvaća utjecaj okoliša na uzgoj vinove loze na razini marko-, mikro- i mezoklime, značenje pojma „terroir“, različite klimatske indekse pri procjeni prikladnosti nekog područja za uzgoj vinove loze. Pitanja su otvorenog tipa i ispituju poznavanje činjenica i sposobnost njihovog povezivanja. Test sadrži i zadatke vezane uz izračun klimatskih indeksa. Na temelju ocjena iz testova znanja i seminarskog rada studentima se određuje završna ocjena ispita prema formuli Sx20+T1x40+T2x40/100 15. tjedan Studenti koji polože Test znanja 1 mogu pristupiti ispravku Testa znanja 2 prvi tjedan po završetku nastave
Završni ispit Student koji ne položi testove znanja tijekom semestra pristupa polaganju cjelovitog usmenog završnog ispita u previđenim ispitnim rokovima. Na ispitu se studentu u pravilu postavljaju tri pitanja iz različitih dijelova programskog sadržaja. Završna ocjena iz predmeta dobiva se prema formuli Sx20+ZIx80/100 ispitni rokovi
