Original Abstract

Recently the written form of tests is given to the first years in bachelor degree programs. The reason is simple, teachers are highly outnumbered by students. It is appropriate to set both the content together with grading of the written exam if you like to obtain a quality test. The most difficult point for grading the test is how to set the grades, particularly for the recently created written exams. Teachers ought to settle on limits within each of the marks and introduce students to it in advance. These limits represent teacher's anticipation about gained knowledge, but often fail in counting the other circumstances as availability of the key study materials and sequence with the previous education. This article focuses at an experiment performed with a small group of students. The content of experiment was a test, where the limits of marks were settled not before but afterwards and will not be based on teacher's anticipations but on results of the test.
