The final certification exams for the full-time BA and MA programs have kicked-off as of 25 May.
Around 2334 full-time and distant-learning students are taking their examinations on the Google Classroom electronic platform. The students of the University of the former years, who submitted applications to re-take the exams, are also participating.
“According to the order of the Rector of the Pedagogical University Rouben Mirzakhanyan, the full-time students are taking final certification examinations only for their professional subjects, added by their pedagogical or professional internship score obtained during the winter exam-session”, the ASPU Vice-Rector for Academic Processes mentioned during his remote interview to the www.aspu.am.
Speaking about the process of the examinations, the Vice -Rector assured that the use of the Google classroom, which had started already four years before, gave them the opportunity to easily hold the final certification exams.
“This is the best option in the current situation. Nine auditoriums have been fully equipped with the relevant equipment and necessary software to hold the examinations; however, it is not at all mandatory for all 7-8 members of the committee to be present at the examination room”, said the Vice-Rector and added that, for example, on that day all members of the Committee followed the exams and assessed remotely.
In addition, the Vice-Rector noted that the University had started preparing for the final examinations already in February, the questionnaires had been posted on the official website of the University, the Faculties had made timetables for consultations and had provided the students therewith. Speaking about the transparency of the examination processes and the objectiveness, the Vice-Rector highlighted that according to the final certification procedures, the process of the examination is recorded.
“If in the past, the recording of and the protocol on the examination process was preserved for 24 hours, now it is maintained for 6 months. I should also mention that during these days we have received two appeals, which have been reviewed”, added Vice-Rector Melik-Bakhshyan.
