Grading and evaluating student work in class and at the final exam

Grading and evaluating student work in class and at the final exam:
A student can pass a part or the entire exam by taking two partial tests during the semester. Students who do not pass the partial exams have to take an exam in the regular examination term. During the examination terms students take written and oral exam.
Scoring: <55% insufficient;55-66% sufficient (2); 67-79% good (3); 80-92% very good (4); 93-100% excellent (5)

Quality assurance methods that ensure the acquisition of exit competences

Quality assurance methods that ensure the acquisition of exit competences:
Quality of the teaching and learning, monitored at the level of the
(1) teachers, accepting suggestions of students and colleagues, and
(2) faculty, conducting surveys of students on teaching quality.
