Assessment methods
The course takes the form of both lectures and seminars. The course is concluded with an oral exam. Students are eligible to take the oral exam provided that they fulfill given conditions: they have to collect at least 60% points from the continuous evaluation within seminars. The continuous evaluation is based on two written tests and the elaboration and presentation of a seminar paper on a given topic. The teacher can award students with “bonus” points if they work actively during seminars. Not gaining the required minimum of points is considered as a failure to prepare continuously. It does not mean that students can re-take “failed” tests or the seminar paper either. Students are graded with an F in such a case.
If students commit a prohibited act, such as using various forbidden tools, cribbing, taking out any part of the exam or any other cheating, the teacher is allowed to interrupt an exam and to grade a student with F, FF or FFF according to the seriousness of the offence. The mentioned procedure relates to all the activities that are included in the final evaluation of the course (seminar work, essays, tests etc.).
