Student Assessment

Student knowledge, skills, and attitudes are assessed through a variety of summative, formative, and alternative assessment methods. These include formal examinations (written, oral, individual and group-based), reflective essays, research papers, course assignments, project and field reports, quizzes, oral or poster presentations, performance, and rubric evaluation tools allowing students to demonstrate their understanding and competencies in theory and practice and receive feedback. In Year 1 and Year 2, students are assessed based on fundamental comprehension of program ILOs. During Year 3 and Year 4, students are assessed on their application, practical use, and mastery of ILOs, and have the opportunity to further develop these skills through an internship or community service learning course and a monograph research project.

Typically, assignments and participation count for 30-40% of the students’ grades reflecting the practical nature of the program. The midterm exam counts for 20%, while the final exam counts for 40-50% of the final grade.

Course Credits

Each credit represents 45 minutes of class instruction per week for a full semester. Courses with 2 credits usually meet once per week for 90 minutes. The 3 credits courses are divided into two sessions of 75 minutes per week. The credits are distributed among ‘Required’, ‘Basic’, and ‘Core’, courses. Many of the required and basic courses are offered through other faculties at Kabul University. Students can register for between 17 and 21 credits each semester. The Bachelor of Science degree credit ranges (minimum 144 and maximum 168) are delimited by the faculty.

Course Syllabi

Course syllabi include credit hours, course description, learning outcomes, teaching methodology, main contents of the course, assessments, reference materials, and prerequisites, if any. The FEN faculty developed a course syllabus policy and format as per the MoHE guidelines for curriculum review and development. Syllabi are designed through a consultative process, inclusive of the sector needs and international standards. Essentially, the syllabi map out the knowledge, skills, processes, and testing systems for students. The syllabi support teachers’ autonomy in teaching new and current issues and use of new technology, while also providing teachers support in interpreting and developing course instruction.

Class Size and Schedule

Classes should be relatively small in size (max. 35 students) enabling an interactive style of teaching with a high degree of individual attention.

Kabul University operates on a 5-day schedule (Saturday-Wednesday). Ideally, during Year 3 and Year 4, classroom courses are arranged at a 4-day schedule allowing for one day of participation in field trips, exposure visits, workshops, seminars, and internships.
