MidTerm as a form of assessment of knowledge, skills and abilities of students

From November 23rd, the first MidTerm exams for the 2020/2021 academic year have begun for students of the “Silk Road” International University of Tourism. The exams continue until November 27th (incl.).

It is advisable to choose a certain form of testing the knowledge, skills and abilities of students for systematic control over the achievement of mandatory learning outcomes during the educational process. Mandatory learning outcomes are the minimum required for further education, meeting the program requirements for the level of training of students.

Therefore, when checking and giving marks for a teacher, it is fundamentally important to get a definite answer: whether or not the student has mastered the knowledge and skills that are being formed at the mandatory level. The goal of each teacher is to ensure that each student has mastered the most important knowledge and skills for further successful study. If a student does not receive a MidTerm grade, it is necessary to organize the revision of the material and its re-examination.
