Mykolas Romeris University uses a criterial ten-point grading scale for assessment of the learning outcomes and a cumulative nature of assessment is applied in order to ensure active work of students during the students. Cumulative assessment shall assess learning outcomes by means of interim evaluations. The final grade is made of the grades of interim evaluations and grades of the examination. Usually, the assessment of the examination makes 40-50 percent of the final grade, whereas that of interim evaluations – 50-60 percent.
