Petition Against OAT Examinations Sufficient Grading: 5.5 EQUALS 55%, NOT 76%!
The OAT examination uses the basic principles of a True / False concept. The result of this examination stands for a high majority of the course grading for each individual student at the NHTV’s ILM program. Opposing examinations, held at NHTV, have a standard percentage of reward ratio (1:1) for (in)sufficiently answered questions within the exam. The OAT however does not share these same requirements and has adopted a different set of success requirements.
Other Examination Requirements: (All examinations excluding the OAT)
A grade is needed of 5.5 (on a 10pt. scale) or higher, to pass the exam/course. This is equivalent to 55% (33/60 questions answered correct) from the student.
OAT Examination Requirements:
A grade is needed of 5.5 (on a 10pt scale) or higher. This is NOT equivalent to 55% (33/60)!
Instead, a 5.5 on the OAT exam is equivalent to 76% (46/60 questions answered correct)!
There are many more issues regarding the OAT examination that could be discussed, such as the the multi-interpretable questions that can not simply be categorized as True or False, but this petition is solely regarding the success requirements of the OAT examination.
Sign this petition in support of changing the OAT examination requirement of 76%, to the original 55% requirement!
