Assessment methods:
Evaluation of students at the seminar in order to obtain a seminar credit is based on two written papers and on active participation in the seminar. All written papers must be attended in person by the student in the dates and rooms specified by the teacher. The first paper is rated at a maximum of 20 points (at least 4 points are required) and the second paper is rated at a maximum of 25 points (at least 5 points are required). The student can reach through active participation in the seminar a maximum of 5 points too. Therefore the student can achieve 50 points in total of both papers and active participation, and at least 25 points are required for obtaining a seminar credit.

If a student does not receive this minimum score, there is only one chance to correction. The correcting seminar paper is rated at a maximum of 50 points and the student passes it successfully by achieving at least half of the points. Upon successful completion of the correction, the student will always receive 25 points regardless of the result achieved in correcting paper and active participation.

The student can take part in the exam after acquisition of a seminar credit, the examination is in written form. The student can get a maximum of 50 points from written exam. By acqusition of less than 25 points in the exam, student does not pass the exam (F grade). The final grade is given by the sum of the seminar points and the exam as follows: A 100-91, B 90-81, C 80-71, D 70-61, E 60-50.

Student of the full-time form can enroll in the subject even when he / she is abroad, however, he / she needs to comply with the above mentioned conditions of termination of the subject with the possibility of merging of continuous seminar papers into one summary paper, which the student personally attends within the term specified by the teacher. From this paper the student can obtain a maximum of 50 points, to obtain the seminar credit a minimum point gain of 25 points is required.
