Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
The seminar paper is an indispensable component of this seminar, in particular as it serves as a direct preparation for the MA thesis. Students who fail to submit a positive and complete term paper (grade 4 or better) via Moodle until 01 March 2020, 11:55 pm will fail the whole course. The numeric EcoS template for assessment of term papers applies (minimum 43 of 72 points for a positive grade). Late submission and/or formal incompleteness will result in failing the course.
Interactive discussion and student participation is integral to this seminar. Regular participation is mandatory. In case of absence, the following rule applies: The final grade remains unchanged for up to two sessions missed (à 90 minutes). Students will fail the course if absent for three sessions or more. Please note: To ensure a smooth proceeding of the seminar, be on time! Students who are late by more than 10 minutes will not be signed in on the attendance list.
For the written summaries, please upload a pdf document until November 22, 11.55 pm in Moodle.
Grading is based on a "continuous assessment of coursework" (Prüfungsimmanente Lehrveranstaltung). Repetition of individual assessment criteria, therefore, is not possible.
General Rules of Good Academic Practice apply. Non-compliance will result in legal measures according to the regulations of the University of Vienna.
All minimum requirements and assessment criteria will be discussed during the first class. Questions related to the minimum requirements and assessment criteria should be raised during the first meeting. By continuing this course, students automatically accept all minimum requirements and assessment criteria and confirm their understanding thereof. Therefore, attendance at the first class is mandatory. Absence at the first meeting will lead to automatic de-registration from this course.
