Evaluation System, Grading Principles and Achievement Conditions

Evaluation System

Each semester, students are given at least one mid-term exam (or a project, field study, etc.) and a final exam. Apart from the exams, quizzes can be held without specifying the date.

The evaluation criteria to be taken into account (mid-term exam, homework, final exam, etc.) and their ratios are indicated in the course curriculum and syllabus distributed to students and posted on the website at the beginning of the semester. Final examinations are held in the specified place and time as announced by the university. Grades given to quizzes, mid-term exam grades, final exam grades and the grades that the students take from the field studies and/or projects which they carry out during the term and their attendance are taken into account by the instructor in charge of the course and given students' term course grades. The courses that won’t hold a mid-term and/or final exam are determined by the Department Heads or School Managers. This information is shared with the Student Affairs’ Office and success in those courses is assessed according to the field studies and/or projects and other activities  that students carry out during the term.

Grading Principles and Achievement Conditions

There are two kinds of regulations in Maltepe University. The first one is for the students who registered to Maltepe University before and in 2009 (Regulation 1-Y1) and the second one is for those students who registered after and in 2010 (Regulation 2-Y2).

For the students who registered before and in 2009 (Regulation 1-Y1):

Determining the grade of a student from a course; her/his achievement level of the course during the year or the semester, the grade average of mid-terms and the grade of final exam are evaluated together. If appropriate, the instructor may evaluate homework or laboratory / field projects or the quizzes relating the course as a mid-term. Also s/he may evaluate those as an addition to the mid-term as separately. However, in order to succeed a student has to get a minimum of 50 (Grade as letter is CC) out of 100 from all mid-terms, final or re-sit exams. 40% of the mid-term grade and 60% of the final or re-sit exam make the achievement grade. Common compulsory courses such as Turkish Literature, Fine Arts, Sport, and Music are evaluated as pass or fail. Those students who get a grade lower than 50/100, are given a re-sit exam during a week after final exam period. In order to be successful, the student should receive at least 50/100 from this exam.

For the students who registered after and in 2010 (Regulation 2-Y2):

The instructors evaluate each of their students who registered for their course, using the method of relative achievement evaluation system of MUBIS-Student Affairs System (OIS), according to the provisions 31, 32 and 33 of Maltepe University Regulation of Associate Degree and Undergraduate Education and Examination.

Grades AA, BA, BB, CB and CC are passing grades, while DC and DD are passing grades under the condition of total grade point average for that term for the student being 2.00 out of 4.00. Grade F is a failing grade.

In the table below course grade for the term is given with point and coefficient equivalents.
