- Grading Scheme
Each grade consists of a single character representing teacher's assessment of the student's work and
knowledge. When enrolling in a course, every student selects (accepts) a certain type of completion
of the course (e.g. examination, colloquium, 'requirements fulfilled', etc.) and thus he/she can only gain the grade (evaluation) corresponding to
this type. The following grades (evaluation) are used at the University:
- Evaluation String
The evaluation form may list more than one grade (evaluation
character) per student. For instance, the string of FFB consists
of two fail grades and the B one. In this particular example, the
student failed an examination as well as his/her first re-sit
and gained B for the second one.
The evaluation string may consist of any number of fail grades and only
one grade completing the course. Besides, the grade (evaluation)
completing the course must be listed last. The grade (evaluation) that
is considered final is the last (rightmost) one.
It is advisable to enter students' grades one by one rather than as
strings since the first way of the two keeps the students constantly
informed about their performance. That is why teachers are recommended
to enter their students' grades into the evaluation form shortly after
every examination or re-sit the students take. Please proceed
diligently when entering your students' grades into the System since
the number of re-sits they have taken plays a pivotal role during the
process of checking their studies.
The application uploading grades into the System is case-insensitive.
 Evaluation form
- Date of Evaluation
The date is always recorded with the last grade (evaluation)
entered and has the format of 'day month year'. The default date is the
- What if a student does not come to an
If a student fails to come to an examination, '-' (minus
sign meaning 'absent') should be used. Although this evaluation character is
not listed above, it can be used for every type of completion.
Teacher → Attendance .. Letters of Excuse
allows you to find out for what examination dates your students have
submitted letters of excuse to the Office for Studies.
 Check students' letters of excuse
Please ensure your evaluation form has been filled in completely at the
end of each term and that all the 'absent' marks have been entered into
the students' records for their absences. That is, if the student's
absence is not properly excused, the 'absent' mark is considered to be
the fail one thereby affecting the student's grade average. The 'absent'
marks are also used in the process of checking the student's studies.
Therefore, make sure you are diligent and just in this respect, please.
- Who can see the student's grades?
The Information System keeps a record of all evaluation strings and
evaluation changes. Besides, it is the information identifying the person
who has made the evaluation change that is recorded as well. Teachers can
access the history of all the evaluation changes.
The student's grades are only accessible to the student himself/
herself, teachers of the given course, users specified as contact
persons, course guarantors, and owners of the
s_studium> right (chiefly the Office for Studies staff) as well as
the s_vyuka one.
- Evaluation-Related Notes
The Note column contains studies-related tags such as
'repeating' (meaning the student is repeating the course
as a result of not having completed it), 'again' (meaning the student has
enrolled in the course again despite completing it before), etc. There
might also be some specification strings attached to the tags (e.g.
3x) specifying how many times the concrete event has hitherto
occurred. Therefore, 'repeating 3x' says the student has failed to
complete the course three times before. Likewise, 'again 3x' means
that the student has completed the course three times before. The
specification string of '1x' is not used. 'cust. study p.'
denotes customized study plan.
The column titled 'Type of Completion' specifies the type of
completion the student selected (accepted) when enrolling in the course.
Once selected, the type of completion can only be changed by the
Office for Studies.
- Browsing Evaluation Form
The evaluation form only displays the number of lines specified at
the bottom of the page (see the field next to 'maximum number of lines
in the form'). Hence, if the number is, for instance, 100, it is the
first 100 students that are displayed on the same page. After entering
their grades (evaluation), you can either save your changes and have
another batch of students displayed using the 'Save and go to another
batch' button or you can only save the changes and stay on the same
page by clicking on 'Save'. Provided you click on 'Go to
another batch without saving, the changes you have made in the form
are not saved and another batch of students is displayed.
 Browsing evaluation form
If the form contains fewer than 100 lines, it is only the 'Save'
button that is displayed at the bottom of the page. Provided the number
of lines making up the form exceeds 100 and you want more of these to be
displayed on the same page, change the number in the field situated at
the bottom of the page (next to 'maximum number of lines in the
form'). The newly entered value will take effect after you click on
one of the aforementioned buttons.
The 'Save' button can also be used for saving the changes
repeatedly as they are made. Each time these are saved, the newly loaded
page lists them at its top.
The number of form entries (students in the form) can also be changed by
applying one of the filters available. To activate a filter, click on
'change filter' situated at the top of the page.
- Two or More Teachers Entering Grades
Simultaneously - Interference
When entering grades into the same evaluation form simultaneously,
teachers may overwrite each other's changes. When the System detects a
change in the contents of the form made by someone else after you opened
it, it informs you of the fact and asks you whether you really want the
changes made by the other user to be overwritten with yours. Since this
warning tends to be overlooked, its is advisable to enter the grades
(evaluation) when no one else is doing so or use the application for
entering grades in the one-by-one way. To do the latter, use the
Teacher → Evaluation .. Enter a student's grade
The application allows teachers to enter grades (evaluation) for
individual students separately, i.e. it does not display the form listing

- What is the purpose of the text fields placed
in the evaluation form containing abbreviated surnames?
The application contains a module keeping track of how many
students individual teachers have examined. Provided a teacher has
examined a student several times, the student is included in the total
number as many times as he/she has been examined by him/her. The column
titled 'Entered by' lists three drop-down menus containing the
names of teachers listed under the course as 'lecturers', 'seminar
tutors', and 'alternate examiners'. The first menu is used to select the
examiner who has entered the first grade, the second one to select the
examiner who has entered the second grade, etc. If it is the examiner
himself/herself that is entering a grade (evaluation), his/her name is
selected by default and he/she need not make any selection. Provided it
is someone else that is entering grades for the examiner, the person
doing so should select the examiner's name. The examiners with no grade
(evaluation) entered are ignored.
