Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

Students, apart from previously taken exams, or their studies, are subject to one final examination.

Each semester, the students take ​​at least one midterm 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 on the dates announced by the university in the specified place and time. Students' semester course grades, midterm exam grades, final exam grades and the grades that take the studies that the students carry out during the semester and the attendance rules into account are given by the instructor in charge of the course. 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 studies that students carry out during the semester.

The semester course grades, together with the evaluation criteria of success are delivered by our teaching staff to the Student Affairs’.

Success Grading

For students enrolled in 2009 and before (Regulation 1-Y1):

When determining a student's grade in a course, the level of success in studies during the course, grade of the year/semester, the average of the midterm grades and the course final grades are evaluated together at the end of the semester. If the related faculty member considers it appropriate, homework, laboratory and similar studies, and informed quizzes can be considered as a midterm or as a single midterm additional to the midterm, or as separate midterm exams. However, to be successful in a course, students must get a grade of at least 50 out of 100 from the semester exam, end of the academic year exam or make-up exam (for letters it is CC). The effect of midterm exam grade on the course grade is 40%, the effect of Final/ Make-up exam on the course grade is 60%.

For students enrolled in 2010 and after (Regulation 2-Y2):

The faculty members use the OIS relative success assessment methodology according to the the31st 32nd and 33rd articles of the Maltepe University Associate Degree and Bachelor Degree Teaching, Training and Testing Regulation to evaluate each student enrolled in their courses and one of the course grades are given from the table given below as the course grade of students.

AA, BA, BB, CB and CC show that students succeeded passing the course; DC and the DD show that students succeeded passing the course if the conditions of success which are based on average weighted grade specified in the regulation are met. F shows failure.

In the following table, the semester course grade points and the coefficients of the course grade letters are given for the students subject to the regulations of the Y1 and Y2.
