STUDY ASSESSMENTS

We designed a special assessment system for students of NIPAI. It allows students to feel free from conventional examinations. Instead of a common grading system we established a score system. After each completed task the  student receives points, after certain number of collected points, the student moves to the next level and is allowed to proceed to next semester.
This system is specifically designed to avoid subjective assessments by lecturers.
