EXAMINATIONS

The success of students in achieving the expected leaning outcomes of the each course unit within the curriculum of DENTISTRY programme is evaluated via assessments of in-term activities and final examination which takes place at the end of each semester.

 

Assessment of in-term activities includes a minimum number of a mid-term examination, a homework and a short-exam (quiz) as compulsory assessment methods for all the course units (excluding workplacement) within all degree programmes defined by the Regulations. The programmes are encouraged to define more assessment methods for the in-term activities depending on their needs for measuring the achievements of the outcomes at the programme and course unit levels in order to ensure the educational aims and objectives. The nature and number of the assessment methods used for each course unit together with their contribution the final grades are given under the title of “Assessment and Grading” in the sections of course descriptions. These arrangements are announced in advance, at the beginning of each semester and published in the sections of the course descriptions on this web site.

 

Mid-term and final examinations are conducted in dates, places and times determined and announced by the University. The students’ final semester grade is given by their instructors based on mid-term examination, homework evaluation, short-examinations, final examination and, if there is any, other assessment results taking into account the students’ compliance with attendance to the course activities.

 

The contribution of assessment grades of the in-term activities to the final grade is 40% and that of the final exam is 60% for all for all the course units (excluding workplacement) within all degree programmes defined by the Regulations.

 

Course units, which do not require a mid-term, homework, short-exam and/or a final exam, such as work placement, are determined by the administration of the related departments and specific assessment and grading methods for these courses are also announced through the same channels described above. Evaluation of such activities is made through the procedures defined by the Senate and assessed by Pass (P) or Fail (F) grades.

GRADES

The success of a student for each assessment (in-term and final) defined for each course unit is evaluated by the instructor. Evaluations are made over a scale of 100 points and converted to the letter grades at the end of the semester taking into account the standard deviation of grades and grade point average of the class and using the relative evaluation method, principles of which have been set by the Senate.

Letter grades and their equivalents out of 100- and 4.00-point scales together with the conversion of these to ECTS Credits are shown below:

Students have to receive a grade by completing their missing works in fifteen days following the date announced for entrance of the grades into the student information system in the academic calendar. Otherwise; (I) shall be turned into (FF) for the credit courses; and (F) grade for the non-credit courses. However; in the event that duration of an excuse of a student gets longer because of force majeure; the relevant faculty committee can extend this deadline upon application of the relevant lecturer by the day before enrolment in the courses for the following semester starts. The grade of (I) given through the abovementioned procedures should be converted to a letter grade by the day before enrolment in the courses for the following semester starts; otherwise this grade shall be transformed into (FF); and this transformation shall be made by AYSIS system automatically.

b) (NA): For absence from the course shall be given to the students who cannot fulfil the requirements for attendance in the course or practice. Student given (NA) from a course cannot attend the final exam of that course and this grade is deemed as (FF) in calculation of the grade point average.

c) (P): Passed grade is assigned to the successful students in non-(local) credit courses.

d) (F): Failed grade is assigned to the unsuccessful students in non-(local) credit courses.

e) (M): Exemption grade is assigned to the courses that students are exempt from because they have successfully passed the exemption exam.

f) (T): Transfer grade is given to the courses that the students transferred from another university took in their previous university and that are recognized equivalent.

g) (W): Withdrawal grade is assigned for the courses that students withdraw in due of time. This grade is given in the event that student voluntarily withdraws from a course she/he takes within the scope of the program in seven weeks following the end of add and drop period upon approval of the lecturer responsible from that course. Students cannot withdraw from the courses in their first year (first and second semester) in university and from the courses which they have to repeat because they failed that course with (FD), (FF), (F) and (NA) previously. This rule is applied to all courses regardless of their compulsory or elective status. Students are not allowed to withdraw from the courses above 1/3 of the total workload. Provided not to exceed one course per semester, students can be allowed to withdraw from two courses in associate programs; and six courses in undergraduate programs throughout their period of study upon approvals of lecturer of the relevant course and their advisor teacher.

h) (E): Not-entered grade is given for the courses which haven’t been evaluated and of which grades haven’t been entered into the system yet. When students are registered to courses, grades of these courses are automatically entered as (E) and until the lecturer enters the real grade for the course, this grade remains in the system. This grade is replaced with the final grade of the student by the lecturer, if this grade is not replaced by any other grades it will be deemed as (FF).

EBS : İstanbul Aydın Üniversitesi Eğitim Öğretim Bilgi Sistemi İstanbul Aydın Üniversitesi AKTS Bilgi Paketi AKTS Bilgi Paketi ECTS Information Package Avrupa Kredi Transfer Sistemi (AKTS/ECTS), Avrupa Yükseköğretim Alanı (Bologna Süreci) hedeflerini destekleyen iş yükü ve öğrenme çıktılarına dayalı öğrenci/öğrenme merkezli öğretme ve öğrenme yaklaşımı çerçevesinde yükseköğretimde uluslarası saydamlığı arttırmak ve öğrenci hareketliliği ile öğrencilerin yurtdışında gördükleri öğrenimleri kendi ülkelerinde tanınmasını kolaylaştırmak amacıyla Avrupa Komisyonu tarafından 1989 yılında Erasmus Programı (günümüzde Yaşam Boyu Öğrenme Programı) kapsamında geliştirilmiş ve Avrupa ülkeleri tarafından yaygın olarak kabul görmüş bir kredi sistemidir. AKTS, aynı zamanda, yükseköğretim kurumlarına, öğretim programları ve ders içeriklerinin iş yüküne bağlı olarak kolay anlaşılabilir bir yapıda tasarlanması, uygulanması, gözden geçirilmesi, iyileştirilmesi ve bu sayede yükseköğretim programlarının kalitesinin geliştirilmesine ve kalite güvencesine önemli katkı sağlayan bir sistematik yaklaşım sunmaktadır. ETIS : İstanbul Aydın University Education & Training System Istanbul Aydin University ECTS Information Package ECTS Information Package European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) which was introduced by the European Council in 1989, within the framework of Erasmus, now part of the Life Long Learning Programme, is a student-centered credit system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme specified in terms of learning outcomes and competences to be acquired. The implementation of ECTS has, since its introduction, has been found wide acceptance in the higher education systems across the European Countries and become a credit system and an indispensable tool supporting major aims of the Bologna Process and, thus, of European Higher Education Area as it makes teaching and learning in higher education more transparent across Europe and facilitates the recognition of all studies. The system allows for the transfer of learning experiences between different institutions, greater student mobility and more flexible routes to gain degrees. It also offers a systematic approach to curriculum design as well as quality assessment and improvement and, thus, quality assurance.
