Examinations, which are conducted by BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL, consist of course examinations and a thesis (or final project) examination.
The examination for the majority of courses consists of a mid-semester exam and a final exam. Both mid-semester exam and final exam are conducted once each semester. There are several courses in some programs that do not require students to sit in a mid-semester and/or a final examination.
Other than a mid-semester exam and a final exam, students will also be assessed using other measurements in accordance with the published assessment policy, which is defined in each syllabus of the courses.
A course syllabus will be published and a copy made available for each student no later than the second week of a teaching period. The syllabus will contain a notification of assessment requirements for the course as follows:
- Statements of all assessment items, including due dates;
- Procedures to be used in determining the final grade including, where appropriate, a statement of any item/s for which a pass is required in order to gain an overall pass in the course.
Thesis (Final Project)
Upon submitting the thesis report, students will be required to attend a thesis defense examination (viva voce), where students must conduct a presentation and/or demo in front of the examiner board. Normally, this defense exam will take one hour to complete.
The board of examiners consists of three members, and includes the students’ supervisor and two independent examiners. The grade that will be assigned to the students will be the weighted average of the grades assigned by each examiner. Students will be assessed in the areas of effort, content, writing quality and delivery of the thesis presentation. The detailed policy and procedure regarding the thesis defense examination is contained in the Thesis Guidelines provided later.
