Upon admission, student’s performance still has to be assessed in every semester. As explained in 2.3 and shownin the Table 8, student’s performance affects the allowable credit load for the next semester. At the beginning of the semester, each student has to submit “study load registration card” or KRS signed by his or her academic supervisor. In doing so, each student is required to show the “grade report card” or KHS, which contains the obtained grade at the previous semesters. Study load registration card and grade report card can be downloaded from the academic portal (https://akademika.ugm.ac.id), by using student’s personal account.
In general, the student’s performance in a particular course is assessed based on whether he or she can achieve the learning outcomes at the end of the course. In each course, there is a set of learning outcomes that consist of cognitive aspect, affective aspect, and psychomotoric aspect. The evaluation of learning outcomes achievement can be conducted in form of assignment, level of participation in class, mid-term examination, and final examination. Each form of evaluation is given a particular weight that made up for the final grade. Due to specific requirements for each course (represented by different learning outcomes), there is a difference in the weighting for grading a course. One course could give more weight on exercises while another course gives more weight on student activity in the class. This weighting shall be informed to the students at the beginning of the course and agreed upon the learning activities.
