Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Modules 2&3: Unit tests
    Modules 2 and 3 are taken into consideration. Unit tests are administered at the end of every unit. Tutors may alternatively choose an online format. In case of absence, a student is only allowed to retake the unit test having provided a medical certificate (sick note). Online tests cannot be retaken.
  • non-blocking Modules 2&3: In-class participation and attendance
    Modules 2 and 3 are taken into consideration. Assessed in the following way. Attendance + active participation = 1. Attendance + lack of / no participation = 0,4. N/A = 0. For instance, modules 2 and 3 have 24 classes in total, which is 24 points max. If a student attends and actively participates in 14 classes, just attends 7 classes with no participation and skips 3 classes: 1) 14 * 1 + 7 * 0,4 + 3 * 0 = 16,8 points out of 24 points max; 2) 16,8 * 10 / 24 = 7 out of 10 is the "In-class participation and attendance" grade. Students who were absent can be allowed to "retake" this section if they can provide a sick note. They will have to complete an in-class task of tutor's choice. However, 0,4 points is max in this case and the deadline for submissions is set by a tutor, at least one week before the exam period.
  • non-blocking Modules 2&3: Productive
