2.3  Evaluate the considerations to be taken into account in dynamic routing

2.4  Evaluate the considerations to be taken into account in a single and multi-area OSPF

2.5  Set up and configure a single area OSPF to agreed standards

2.6  Configure a multi area OSPF to agreed standards

2.7  Configure a multi area EIGRP to agreed standards


  1. For each of the criteria listed in the first column, circle one box in the corresponding column to the right which best reflects the student’s work on this particular assessment activity (e.g., project, presentation, essay).
  2. Provide specific feedback to a student about each of the criteria scores he/she earned by writing comments and suggestions for improvement in the last row titled “Instructor’s comments.”
