Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

Students will take a minimum of one midterm examination. In addition to midterms, they will be assigned projects and homeworks whose deadlines will be specified at the beginning of the semester. At the end of each semester, the students are required to take a final examination. The course content, the requirements (midterm, project, assignment and final examination) and their contribution to the final grade is specified on the website. Student regulations and the final examination dates are determined by the university and final examinations take place as announced. The students are graded according to their midterm, project, assignment and final examination results.

The passing grade at Namık Kemal University is 60 out of 100. However, the grade of the final examination or the retake should be a minimum of 50. Exams are evaluated on a scale of 100. The final grade of a course is the sum total of %30 of the midterm grade and %70 of the final or the retake examination grades. However, the calculation of the final grade of a course can be determined and announced at the beginning of the semester by the Faculty/College Council as the sum total of ranging between %30 – %50 of the midterm examination and %50 – %70 of the final examination as long as the addition equals to a scale of 100. As a result of the calculation, if the value after the decimal is less than five, the grade is finalized by lowering it to the decimal value; if more than five, upgrading it to the next decimal value.

The regulations can be found on http://oidb.nku.edu.tr/yonetmenlik/2011eos.pdf.

Final and retake grades are submitted to the Student Affairs along with the evaluation criteria. The grades are announced on the student information system.
