Assessment methods (in Czech)
Povinná účast na seminářích vyplývá ze studijního řádu. Tolerují se maximálně dvě řádně omluvené absence; nejlépe je neúčast nahradit v nejbližším vhodném termínu.
Výuka je ukončena zkouškou (Zk), která probíhá převážně ústní formou, avšak zahrnuje i kratší písemnou část v podobě překladu klinických a recepturních termínů z češtiny do latiny. Obsahem ústní odpovědi je mluvnický rozbor vybraných latinských anatomických a klinických termínů, určování a obměňování základních gramatických kategorií a výklad odborně relevantního gramatického jevu; následují konkrétní úkoly ze slovotvorby a prověřování lexikálních znalostí. Doplňkovou součást zkoušky tvoří otázky z teorie terminologie (historické aspekty, současný stav vývoje, charakteristické znaky apod.).
