Matching Assessments to Learning Outcomes:

Forms of testing knowledge

1.1. Mid-term examination

1.2. Written examination

1.3. Oral examination

1.4. Presentation on the topic not covered in the course contents

1.1. Mid-term examination

Mid-term examination is a form of testing knowledge in which the student has to demonstrate that he or she can define basic concepts, compare and explain the differences and similarities between concepts and approaches, explain causes and consequences of poverty and exclusion for different social groups. Twq mid-term examinations which are not obligatory can be taken during the semester. Each mid-term covers 50% of the topics covered in classes. Students who are positively graded in both mid-term exams take final oral examination. Each mid-term consist of 10 questions with open answers, and 0, 1 or 2 points can be given for each answer.

Grading system is as follows:

0-10 insuffficient (1)

11-12 sufficient (2)

13-15 good (3)

16-17 very good (4)

18-20 excellent (5)

Mid-term grade is an arithemtic mean of grades achieved in both mid-term examinations.
