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

Continuous evaluation:
The entire test can be applied over the two exams during the semester. Pass rate threshold is 60%. Each colloquium in assessing participates with 45%. The presence of trainers mechanism in 80-100% amount is 10% of the grade.
Final evaluation:
Students who have passed one colloquium, it is recognized as part of the exam (45% score). The remaining part is laid in the regular examination periods.
Students who did not pass any colloquim, written exam in the regular examination periods laid the whole subject matter. Pass rate threshold is 60%.
Rating: sufficient (60-70%), good (71-80%), very good (81-90%), excellent (91-100%).

Quality assurance methods that ensure the acquisition of exit competences

Monitoring of quality assurance will be performed at three levels:
(1) University; (2) Faculty Level by Quality Control Committee of teaching; (3) Teacher level.
