Ukrainian Language and Literature Week at our partner school!

The Ukrainian Language and Literature Week turned out to very peculiar for pupils of our partner school – Comprehensive School №2 n.a. Yurii Zbanatsky (Oster). On their way to school they were revising Taras Shevchenko’s verses as it was reciting his poem that was a special permit to be let in. The flashmob “Travelling the lines of Kobzar” excited not only the pupils, but also their teachers and parents.

Тиждень української мови та літератури

Незвичайним виявився для учнів тиждень української мови та літератури, бо, ідучи до школи, вони повторювали рядочки з поезій Т.Г.Шевченка, адже символічним пропуском до школи цього дня була розповідь улюбленої поезії Т.Г.Шевченка. Флешмоб «Рядками Кобзаря» зацікавив не тільки учнів, а й учителів та батьків.

ConcordiaUA introducing computer-based testing

Moving toward an electronic format of assessment, ConcordiaUA has decided to introduce computer-based examinations starting with the spring term 2018. ConcordiaUA professors and instructors are being encouraged to make Midterm and Final exam papers via computer-based mode, although the pencil-and paper mode is still randomly in use. By the end of this term, e-exams are to be the only format of assessment.
The first e-Midterms were taken by our 4th year students in World Economics and 2nd year students in Macroeconomics. Professor Dr. of Sci. in Economics L. Zharova, Head of the International Management and International Business Department, is assisted by Senior Lecturer Cand. Sc. in Economics N.M. Protsun, Dean of the School of Management, Director of Distance Learning Center. The students were able to use calculators, pens, scratch paper, but mobile phones were not allowed in the testing room and, thus, collected by the test supervisors before the examination.
Our congratulations to the students who have passed their first e-tests!
