Student Assessment
The evaluation of students (FG)(range 0-10) is based on a combination of the following marks: Final examination paper (FE), Midterm examination paper (ME), Average of 2 assignments (AA) The evaluation formula is as follows: If FE>=5 then: FG = 5 + (FE-5)*0,6 + (AA-5)*0,2 + (ME-6)*0,5 (no negative marks) If 5>FE>=4 then: FG = 4 + (AA-5)*0,2 + (ME-6)*0,5 (no negative marks) If FE<4, then: FG = FE
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Short Answer Questions (Formative, Summative)
  • Written Assignment (Summative)
