  • non-blocking In-class online discipline written assessment
    Online discipline written test takes form of a test of 15 multiple choice questions with at least 4 answer options for each. The test is aimed at checking the student’s knowledge and understanding the material addressed in the online course. The number of correct answers (correct answer options indicated by a student) is equal to the grade for the test. The test is closed book; students could not use any materials or devices. The duration of the assessment is 20 minutes.
  • non-blocking In-class participation
    For active work in class (resolving problems, participating in discussions) and demonstrating due preparation for the classes, positively assessed by the tutor, a student can receive up to 10 points for all seminars preceding the exam in total. In case of insufficient student activity in seminars, the student accordingly receives 0 points. If a student is absent at more than 20% of classes, 0 points are awarded for in-class participation. The in-class participation grade received by the student is announced to him at the last tutorial and is taken into account in the calculation the resulting and final grade for the discipline.
  • non-blocking Written exam
    The exam consists of two components – the basic part and the specific part. The grade for the exam is calculated according to the following formula: Ge = Cb * Gsp with: Ge – grade for the exam (10 points maximum), Cb – basic assessment coefficient (determined as result of the basic part of the exam, the minimum value is 0.6, the maximum value is 1), Gsp – grade for the specific part of the exam (determined as result of the specific part of the exam, 10 points maximum). Rounding rules: from 0,1 to 0,4 – to the lesser, from 0,5 to 0,9 – to the bigger. The basic part takes form of a test of 10 multiple choice questions with at least 4 answer options for each. The test is aimed at checking the student’s knowledge and understanding of the basic provisions of public international law and ensuring the validity of the grade for the exam as a whole. If the number of correct answers (correct answer options indicated by a student) is less than 5 (i.e. 4 or more incorrect answers), the specific part of the exam is not subject to review and assessment, and 1 point is awarded for the exam as a whole. If the number of correct answers is 5 or more, they are converted into the basic assessment coefficient as follows: 10 correct answers equate to 1,0; 9 correct answers equate to 0,9; 8 correct answers equate to 0,8; 7 correct answers equate to 0,7, 6 correct answers equate to 0,6 and 5 correct answers equate to 0,5. The basic part of the exam is closed book; students could not use any materials or devices. The duration of the basic part of the exam is 15 minutes. The specific part of the exam takes form of a resolution of a practical case based on the material covered in class and during self-study. Students need to demonstrate the knowledge of public international law and jurisprudence, as well as demonstrate the skills of argumentation. The specific part of the exam is closed book; students could not use any materials or devices. The duration of the specific part of the exam is 45 minutes.
