THE SYSTEM OF MONITORING AND EVALUATION OF EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS OF STUDENTS

Academic achievement of students (enrolled) for all types of academic assignments and tasks is assessed according to the score–rating letter system of knowledge assessment in accordance with state educational standards for monitoring and evaluation of knowledge.

Monitoring of progress of students is carried out on each subject discipline, and includes control of knowledge in classroom and extracurricular activities. Assessing the current control (rating of admission) develops estimates of current control in the classroom and assessments of midterm control (extracurricular activities).

When the current control of academic performance the academic achievement of students is evaluated on a 100-point scale for each completed task, and the final result of current control of progress is applied to calculate the arithmetic mean value of all grades received during the academic period.

Students who do not have a positive evaluation rating of admission in disciplines that are not allowed to the final control (examination).

Control system knowledge in ATU includes a rating control (two times in semester) and final control (exams). Rating control on disciplines is carried out on 8 and 15 weeks of academic period. Admission to exams is carried out by receiving 50 points or more in each of the rating control.

In each discipline is determined by the final assessment, which consists of the results of the rating control and examination, with 60 % rating control, 40 % is the result of the exam.

Final assessment of student knowledge is evaluated on a letter system of assessment of educational achievements of students, which corresponds to a digital equivalent on four-point system.
