STANDARD 3. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENT-CENTERED LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT OF ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Criterion 3.1. Using regular feedback from students to evaluate and adjust pedagogical methods, educational forms, and technologies
To ensure regular feedback from students in order to evaluate and adjust pedagogical methods, educational forms and technologies, an online anonymous survey is conducted at AIU after each semester (Sample questionnaire "Student Satisfaction Questionnaire").
The analysis of questionnaires shows that students are generally satisfied with the pedagogical methods, educational forms and technologies used (Report on the results of the survey "Student Satisfaction Questionnaire").
The results of the survey are discussed at the interdepartmental meeting, the QMS and the Academic Council, and as a result, proposals are made for making changes to the work programs for individual disciplines (Minutes of the Academic Council meeting).
Subsequently, the Department of Quality Management is provided with a report of departments on the work carried out to eliminate comments (report on the results of monitoring on the elimination of comments on the "Student Satisfaction Questionnaire"). You can also see whether comments and suggestions were taken into account when conducting a survey after the next semester.
The survey allows you to see the level of student satisfaction with studying atAIUand the quality of teaching. The purpose of the survey procedure is fully justified, as it was possible to establish the level of student satisfaction and the level of quality of educational activities.
Success and Failure Analysis: Analyze which training methods and technologies are working well, and where improvements are needed. Some training forms may not achieve the desired results and need to be changed or replaced.
The AIU conducts a thorough analysis of the success and failure of the educational process. This allows you to determine which teaching methods and technologies work effectively and lead to good results for students, as well as identify those aspects where improvements are required.
The Quality Management Department carefully analyzes student feedback and feedback received during the survey to understand which elements of the educational process are most valuable and effective for students. This analysis helps you identify the most successful training methods and technologies, as well as identify those that need to be improved or replaced.
Criterion 3.2. Proficiency of evaluators (examiners) in methods of testing students ' knowledge and continuous professional development in this area
In the objectives of the AIU strategic development plan, a huge role is assigned to the formation of a stable, highly professional team with continuous improvement of their skills. Professional development plans for teaching staff take into account the needs of each teacher and provide a free choice of the professional development cycle.
The ability of evaluators to test students 'knowledge is evaluated by reviewing academic programs, discussing assessment methods at cathedral meetings, mutual visits to teachers' classes, control visits to classes by department heads, the quality management department, and the vice-rector for educational work.
The AIU uses a modular-point-rating system for monitoring students ' knowledge. The assessment procedures are defined by the AIU IBRS Regulation (link:).
The main methods of knowledge verification are:
- oral exam,
- written exam
Specific forms and procedures for current, mid-term, intermediate and final control of knowledge in each discipline are developed by the teacher and reflected in the curriculum and syllabuses, brought to the attention of students within(specify the number of days)
Intermediate and final knowledge testing is carried out according to the approved schedule of the AIU educational process. The final assessment of the student's learning outcomes in the discipline for the semester consists of the average of all types of control, with translation into the rating plan of the discipline. After that, the average student rating for the semester is displayed.
The results of student attestations are brought to the attention of each student through an electronic journal posted on the portal. (link:)
AIU's teaching staff is constantly working to improve their teaching skills and professional qualifications. AIU has formed a reserve of personnel in all disciplines for all semesters, which allows us to ensure the continuity and stability of training.

The distribution of rating points between control types is set in the following ratio according to the module-point-rating rating system table:(specify the table)
Criterion 3.4. Ensuring the objectivity and transparency of the evaluation procedure, including mitigating circumstances and providing for a formal procedure for appealing the evaluation results
The official procedure for appealing the results of assessment and final control to the AIU is carried out in accordance with the Regulations on the Appeals Commission.

Video recordings from exams are used as an additional confirmation of this process.
During the existence of the AIU, there have been no complaints from students that raise doubts about the objectivity and transparency of the knowledge assessment procedure.
To ensure transparency and objectivity of the student assessment procedure, AIU has implemented the use of GoogleForms. All information about the movement of the student body, assessment criteria, control forms and exam sheets are entered into the Google information system. Each student can log in and get information about their rating. This allows students to individually track their learning progress, and teachers to objectively calculate student scores.
Deadlines for the elimination of academic debts by students are set by the UME AIU in agreement with the departments and brought to the attention of students. Students who do not show up for the exam due to illness, disrespectful reasons, or who received an "unsatisfactory" grade at the exam are allowed to retake the exam no more than three times. The schedule of retakes is drawn up by the UME AIU in agreement with the departments and is brought to the attention of students. Retake is carried out as part of the examination session, but only after students have completed all scheduled exams.
The statement with the results of the retake is submitted by the department to the dean's office on the day of the repeated exam or no later than 12 o'clock the next day. Failure of a student to retake the exam without a valid reason is equated to an unsatisfactory rating. If the discipline is rated "unsatisfactory", the student has the right to take all subsequent exams during the examination session. Students who were unable to pass tests and exams within the established time frame for a documented good reason, the order of the Dean's office sets individual deadlines for passing tests and exams.

The application for appeal is submitted by the student to the Vice-rector for Educational Work on the day of the exam. The appeal filed is considered by the commission established for this purpose within three working days. The appeal commission consists of representatives of the department and the dean's office. The composition of the commission consisting of at least three people is approved by the dean of the faculty on the recommendation of the head of the department. The appeal commission meets in the presence of the student. If a student fails to attend a meeting of the appeal commission without a documented valid reason, the application is rejected. The final decision on the assessment of knowledge is drawn up by the commission in the form of a protocol, which is signed by the chairman of the appeal commission and filed with the exam sheet.
