Description of the grading system and assessment at Eszterházy Károly Univeristy

Assessing knowledge can take place:
a) written or oral in-class presentations, sit-in written tests, homework assignments
(plan, progress sheet, record)
b) examination (during the exam period)
c) assignment
d) comprehensive examination
e) final examination

There is a five-scale evaluation system:
5 - jeles / Excellent
4 - jó / Good
3 - közepes / Fair
2 - elégséges / Sufficient
1 - elégtelen / Insufficient or Fail
In case of some courses when no grade is awarded we use only Pass/Fail and the three-scale evaluation system is also applied: Excellent (5), Satisfactory (3) and Fail (1).

The student can be given an end-of-term evaluation in case of:
a) seminars based on the student's performance.
b) examination mark (k) is determined on the basis of student performance in the examination or on the overall result of mid-term tests and exam performance.
c) signature (ai): certifying the completion of the requirements.
