Assessment methods
1. Seminar paper (passed - not passed) – elaboration and presentation of a systematic literature review or, alternatively, of a quantitative/qualitative empirical study on a given topic.
2. Short tests at seminars during the semester.
3. Bonus activities – presentations and discussions at the lectures.
4. Final written exam – in case of an insufficient number of points obtained from tests during the semester and bonus activities.
Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam (credit test) by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
