Assessment methods
Requirements for approaching the exam:
1. Processing and submission of WCTs (works corrected by tutor) with classification as passed. In the case of classification failed a student will not be admitted to the exam.
2. Successful completion (passing) of the control test. Condition (point assessment) for the successful completion (passing) of this test is not strictly defined, because the test is part of the final exam. The condition is thus set for an overall assessment of the tests, not for its components. This control test can be assessed up to 8 points. If a student can not physically complete the test (the apology will judge the teacher), he/she writes this test in the first two weeks of the examination period.
The final exam and final classification
The exam has a written form. Its components are the control test and the exam test. Condition of the minimum number of points for successful completion of an exam test is not strictly defined.
The final mark is made up of: the result of control test written on tutorial (maximum 8 points) and the result of exam test (maximum 12 points), eventually also classification of WCT (a bonus of up to 1 point).
Rating scale:
A: 92 - 100% (18,4 - 20 points),
B: 84 - 91% (16.8 - 18.3 points),
C: 76 - 83% (15.2 - 16.7 points),
D: 68 - 75% (13.6 - 15.1 points),
E: 60 - 67% (12 - 13.5 points),
F: less than 60% (less than 12 points).
Student who will have after writing the control test and the exam test less than 12 points, will repeat always only the exam test.
Warning: Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams 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 by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
