Assessment

RULES OF ASSESSMENT:

With the focus on continual assessment students collect points for their overall assessment throughout the whole semester. For a student to be assessed, he/she will have to do the following tasks:

TEST I (all the topics in British history) and TEST II (the whole of American history). In addition, points can be awarded for active class participation and a non-compulsory task/s (check Annoncements). Test I is a mid-semester test written in week 7 or 8, Test II is given after the end of the teaching period (during the exam time).

Both TEST I and TEST II are based on the lectures, weekly reading assignments and topics/videos discussed in seminars. Your study guidelines are your lecture worksheets with all the open-ended questions, dates, key events, historical figures and vocabulary.

Attendance at seminars is compulsory. Students are allowed to miss a maximum of 2 seminars. Penalty points are deducted if more than 2 unaccounted absences occur.
