Assessments


Assessments is a way of gathering information from various sources so that we can develop a strong understanding of what students actually know, what they require, how they can use their knowledge and what are their past experiences of academic career.

KYIV MEDICAL UNIVERSITY OF UAFM has strong assessment techniques to improve the quality of learning capability of students. Assessment of students helps a lot in tracking their performance in their academic career. The consequences of assessments acts as a guide for the university that how the students are learning and progressing in their academic session. We have two assessment techniques for checking the progress of students Formative assessments and Summative assessments. Our formative assessments act as a feedback sources for teaching and learning while in summative assessments we have conclusion on what a student learned during a set of learning activities. On this basis we have following specification on assessments:-

+ Regular monitoring of practical, seminars and classes. The university ensures for the successful implementation of practical skills for the current class topic and practical laboratory works.
+ Regular monitoring of practical, seminars and classes. The university ensures for the successful implementation of practical skills for the current class topic and practical laboratory works.
+ The maximum amount of scores a student can obtain for each module is 200 in which 120 scores are from regular test set and 80 scores from final module control. The final module control will be considered passed only if the student has obtained a minimum of 50 scores.
+ The final marks on disciplines are awarded only to those students who have successfully passed in all module controls.
+ The amount of aggregate scores, which a student receives on a particular discipline, is determined as the arithmetic mean of scores for all module controls on that particular discipline (the sum of scores for all modules is divided by amount of modules on discipline).

After learning the academic discipline all students in a course, who have been studying under one specialty – “General Medicine”, “Pediatrics”, “Medical Preventive care”, are ranked at dean’s offices according to ECTS scale, awarding the final grade “A”, “B”, « C » , « D » , « E » . Only those students, who successfully finish studying a discipline, are ranked.

The students, who received FX and X, are not included into the list of students, being ranked, even after passing through the module for the second time. Such students automatically receive E mark after passing through the module for the second time.

FX and F marks on a discipline are put to the students, who fail to pass through even one module on that discipline even after completion of the curriculum.

FX mark is given to the students, who obtain the minimum amount of scores for current academic activity but have failed to pass the final module control. This category of students is entitled to pass the final module control for the second time according to a department approved schedule during winter or summer holidays (two weeks after finish of the semester or academic year). Not more than 2 repeat attempts are allowed to pass a final module control after failing the first attempt.

F mark is put to the students, who attended all class hours in the module but fail to obtain minimum amount of scores for current academic activity and are not admitted to final module control. This category of students is required to repeat that particular module.

With the permission from pro-rector of scientific and academic work, a student may improve his/her mark on that discipline by passing the final module control for the second time (not more than three times for the whole period of study).
