Assessment methods
COLLOQUIUM INFORMATION:

1.   To sit for colloquium, it will be required to successfully complete the prerequisite subjects.

2.   Each student must register in the Information System (IS) in one of the offered examination terms. The examination has fixed examination terms / dates - (Only during the examination period, except the examination pre-term). No extra-terms will be given.

3.   Students registered to an examination term will fail the term if:
  a-) arrive late the examination day.
  b-) they are not present and previously did not cancel the term in the stipulated periods (see IS).

4.   In case of failure, EACH STUDENT CAN RETAKE THE COLLOQUIUM TWO MORE TIMES, only in given terms (according to Masaryk University study rules).

5.   In case of failure during the third term (second resit), the student must repeat the course in the following school year.

6.   All colloquium questions are based on ALL REQUIRED LITERATURE, seminars and lectures.


Colloquium → Written examination → 20 multiple choice question test, with only one correct answer - (to pass the test, it is required a minimum of 14 correct answers / points).


SCORE:

  Passed → 14 and more correct answers / points.
  Failed → 13,99 or less correct answers / points.


In order to omit / avoid guessing while answering the MCQ test / examination, the following system will be used:
  Correct answer = 1 point.
  No answer = 0 point.
  Wrong answer = -0,5 point.

  Test scoring will be according to the next formula:
  Final score = Number of correct answers - (Number of wrong answers / two).

  For example:
  15 correct answers (15 x 1 point = 15 points) - Passed.
  5 wrong answers (5 x -0,5 = -2,5 points).
  15 - 2,5 = 12,5. The final score of the test will be 12,5 answers / points.
  Final result = Failed.


  ** For that reason, only answer the question when you are sure of the answer.



ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT, PLAGIARISM DETECTION AND ETHICAL ISSUES:

1.   Any attempts of ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT, such as cheating or assisting someone else to cheat during the colloquium, will result in disciplinary actions, such as:
  a-) You will be required to hand over your examination paper and asked to leave the examination room. This means, you failed the examination (examination term), with the respective score F / 4, on your academic records in the information system.
  b-) Opening disciplinary proceedings.
  c-) Failing the subject / course.
  d-) Expulsion from university.

2.   During the colloquium, it is forbidden to use items such as:
  a-) Smart phones / Tablets.
  b-) Laptops.
  c-) To wear earphones or headphones (if not medical prescribed).
  d-) To talk.
