Their evaluation degree for this period is calculated from 21 August to 29 September 2022.

Evaluation tools for the first, second, and third grades include short class assessments, which have two marks. Not exceeding the two assessments, students perform a short assessment according to each subject. 8 marks were allocated for class participation, 8 marks for assignments, and two marks for the systematic activity or project. Students’ grades were monitored in National Student Information System (NSIS) in the same field designated for it and certificates are issued for the same period referred to above.

In the second half of the first semester, 20 marks are assigned to assess students’ performance. The student’s evaluation score for this period is calculated from 2 October to the end of the first semester exams on 6 November 2022. The degree distribution is done according to the approved assessment tools used. According to the policy of assessment, two marks are allocated for classroom assessments, half a mark for class participation, two marks for assignments, half a mark for curricular activity, and 15 marks for the end of the first-semester exam.

Coming to the second semester, the total assigned score will be 60 marks. The grades shall be distributed to the mid-term and end-of-term exams in accordance with the approved evaluation policy in force.

For grades four to eleven of the first semester, the total score allocated will be 40 marks. Evaluation of students in the first semester is explained as follows. In the first half of the first semester, 5 marks are allocated for assessing students’ performance.
