The following scale will be used in evaluating the quality of your work in class, grading your mid-term, end-of-term, final research papers/projects, and calculating your overall grade for the course:

A = 95 – 100% (4 points) B = 80 – 84% (3.0 points) C = 65 – 69% (2.0 points)
A - = 90 – 94% (3.67 points) B - = 75-79% (2.67 points) C - = 60-64% (1.67 points)
B+ = 85 – 89% (3.33 points) C+ = 70 – 74% (2.33 points) D + = 55-59% (1.33 points)
D = 50 – 54% (1.0 point) F = 49 – 0% (0 – Failure)

EXPLANATORY NOTES

There are two attestation periods worth 100% each. The final exam is 100% of the student’s grade. In-class assessment includes continuous work in the lectures and seminars, participation and aural quizzes. Homework is work done outside of class and includes regular assignments for seminars as well as the TSIS/SIS project. Research paper/project (TSIS/SIS) requires reading and analyzing scientific articles, compiling glossaries (PP1&2), and making presentations on the related topic (PP1&2). Midterm assessment includes reports on PP1, end-of term assessment includes project presentations of PP2 and final exam is performed by a test ?????.

ACADEMIC POLICY

Attendance: MA students are required not only to attend lectures and seminars regularly, but also to be active participants. Any absence may disqualify a student, unless it is caused by a legitimate reason duly announced to the lecturer, if possible in advance, and compensated for by additional work arranged with the lecturer. Preparation for each seminar and active participation in it is essential. Non-compliance with this may count as absence or result in a lower grade. Failure in attendance and participation will be penalized by not having their index signed, which will lead to further administrative penalties.

MA students are required:

• to follow SDU academic policy regarding I, F grades.

• to come to seminars prepared and actively participate in discussions; students who fail to participate may be marked absent at the teacher’s discretion;

• to act respectful towards the teacher and other students;

• to switch off mobile phones during lectures and seminars;

• to enter the room before the teacher starts the lecture or seminar;

• to attend all lectures and classes. The students are responsible for obtaining all assignments for any lectures and seminars missed and a zero shall be given for incomplete work.

• not to cheat. Plagiarized papers will not be graded and may be grounds for failing the course; a grade of zero will be given for no indication of sources (either in-text or after text), falsification of sources, direct and indirect plagiarism.

• to meet deadlines; all formal papers must be submitted at the beginning of the of class on the day they are due. There will be a deduction of points in case of late submission (10% per day). Please note that it is your responsibility to print assignments well in advance.
