Grading and evaluating student work in class and at the final exam 
The entire examination can be applied over the two partial test of theoretical and seminar materials during the semester. Passing threshold is 60%. Each colloquium in the assessment accounts for 50%. Lectures presence of 80 to 100% is 10% marks. The examination periods there is a written, oral and written and oral examination. Passing threshold is 60%. Passing one partial test from any part (previous activity) is valid throughout the current academic year. Written exam has a share of 30% of oral and written with 60% and 10% verbal. Students who did not pass the exam by the partial tests take the exam through written, oral and writtenoral examination in the regular examination periods. Passing threshold is 60% and the examination form to participate in the assessment with 50%. Rating: 60% 69%  satisfactory, 70% 79%  a good 80% 89% very good, 90% 100%  excellent.
