### Weekly mini-tests 0.35

Period: 1st module 2023/2024, Study period, Offline

Grade: 1st module 2023/2024

Retake an exam: Possible

**Retake principles:**

On the first resit the cumulative course grade is taken into consideration. On the second resit there are the following rules: If the cumulative grade + 2nd resit grade >= 4, then the student receives the sum of these marks, multiplied by their coefficients. If the cumulative grade + 2nd resit grade < 4, but the 2nd resit grade > 7, then the student is given a 4. If the 2nd resit grade is <7 and the cumulative grade is <4, the student receives a failing grade.
** Criteria for evaluation:**
Mini-tests are marked according to the following correspondence scale:
10 - 96-100% 9 - 91-95% 8 - 86-90% 7 - 78-85% 6 - 71-77% 5 - 61-70% 4 - 51-60% 3 - 36-50% 2 - 21-35% 1 - 1-20% 0 - 0%
If plagiarism is detected, the assessment element will be assigned a score of “0”. If the student is suspected of preparing the task not on his own, the teacher has the right to initiate the additional verification or defence of this particular assessment element. Then such an assessment element will be graded based on the additional verification or the defence.

Is exam

Retake an exam: Possible

**Retake principles:**

On the first resit the cumulative course grade is taken into consideration. On the second resit there are the following rules: If the cumulative grade + 2nd resit grade >= 4, then the student receives the sum of these marks, multiplied by their coefficients. If the cumulative grade + 2nd resit grade < 4, but the 2nd resit grade > 7, then the student is given a 4. If the 2nd resit grade is <7 and the cumulative grade is <4, the student receives a failing grade.
** Criteria for evaluation: **
The tasks are marked by arithmetically converting the percentages of correct answers onto a 10-point scale. The base grade for the complete mastery of the course programme is evaluated with the “Excellent” grade amounting to 8 (eight) points. Higher marks, viz. 9 or 10, are justified, at the instructor’s discretion, for exceeding the course programme in relation to individual tasks or the totality of the course.

**10** The answer is detailed and comprehensive. All important terms are defined. The presentation of ideas is accurate and coherent. Analytical skills, creative and critical thinking are successfully applied in a measure exceeding what has been presented in class.

**8-9** The answer is detailed and comprehensive enough. Important terms are defined. The presentation of ideas is mainly accurate and coherent. Analytical skills and critical thinking are successfully applied. 1 or 2 minor mistakes are permissible (9 or 8 points respectively).

**6-7** The answer is detailed and comprehensive enough. Important terms are defined, though the presentation of ideas lacks coherence, OR mistakes are present. There can be a gross mistake (7 points) or a major and a minor mistake in the answer. Analytical skills and critical thinking are applied.

**4-5** The answer is not detailed and comprehensive enough. Some important terms are defined. The presentation of ideas lacks coherence, and numerous mistakes are present. (2 major mistakes make 5 points and 3 major mistakes make 4 points). There are flaws in logic and critical analysis of the material.

**2-3** The answer is not detailed or comprehensive. Few important terms are defined. The presentation of ideas lacks coherence, and numerous mistakes are present. There are flaws in logic and critical analysis of the material.

**1** The answer barely contains any information.

**0** Cheating or plagiarism detected. OR Student not present. OR The answer is not related to the topic.

If plagiarism is detected, the assessment element will be assigned a score of “0”. If the student is suspected of preparing the task not on his own, the teacher has the right to initiate the additional verification or defence of this particular assessment element. Then such an assessment element will be graded based on the additional verification or the defence.

**Examples of tasks:**

Sample question: Provide a constituent structure for the sentence “Colourless green ideas sleep furiously.”

### Interim assessment (2023/2024 1st module)

**Estimation formula: Weekly mini-tests * 0.35 + Written exam * 0.4 + Homework: Written assignment * 0.25**

**Retake principles:**

On the first resit the cumulative course grade is taken into consideration. On the second resit there are the following rules: If the cumulative grade + 2nd resit grade >= 4, then the student receives the sum of these marks, multiplied by their coefficients. If the cumulative grade + 2nd resit grade < 4, but the 2nd resit grade > 7, then the student is given a 4. If the 2nd resit grade is <7 and the cumulative grade is <4, the student receives a failing grade.

## Final grade

Estimation formula: The final grade is calculated according to the interim assessment formula 1st module 2023/2024

**Weekly mini-tests * 0.35 + Written exam * 0.4 + Homework: Written assignment * 0.25**
