Assessment methods
The course has a form of a lecture. The lecture (4 hours) is not divided.
Completion of the course is formed by score from a written POT and from a final written test. These enter into the evaluation as follows:
- POT: 50 pts, 30 pts must be reached to accept the POT
- test: 50 pts, to pass the test it is necessary to reach 30 pts
The final mark is then made up of the sum of points obtained:
100 pts - 92 pts: A
91 pts - 84 pts: B
83 pts - 76 pts: C
75 pts - 68 pts: D
67 pts - 60 pts: E
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.
