Moed B - Appeals Policy - Important!!

מדיניות ערעורים: המבחן נבדק על פי מפתח ניקוד ברור, בשאלות הפתוחות במידה ולא שייכתם את השפה למשפחת השפות הנכונה לא ניתן לקבל ניקוד וזה לא ישתנה בערעורים, "לעיתים ניתנו מספר נקודות על האינטואיציה במקרים אלו - לא יתקבלו ערעורים על מספר הנקודות במקרים אלו או על העלאת נקודות כי "יש פה "אינטואיציה שיקלו בבקשה היטב עניין זה בטרם הגשת ערעור שכן בעת הגשת ערעור הבחינה כולה נבדקת מחדש ותיתכן גם הפחתת נקודות.

ערעור חייב להיות ענייני וממוקד. הערעור יכול רק להתייחס לטעות בבדיקה או טעות בניקוד או טעות בהבנה של התשובה ("הבודק טען שהאוטומט שלי לא עושה אבל הוא כן" או "הטעון שלי נכון כי…" וכד'). מכאן שערעורים על החלק האמריקאי שאינם על טעות בבדיקה - יידחו על הסף וכדי להדגיש את הכוונה - ערעורים על החלק האמריקאי שעניינם: "השאלה לא נכונה" "לא הבנתי נכון את השאלה" "השאלה לא היתה ברורה" יידחו על הסף ולכן חבל על המאמץ. בנוסף, אין תוספות ניקוד בגלל מקרה מיוחד. סטודנט שיערער בבקשה לנקודות נוספות כדי לעבור או כי היה קשה או בגלל נסיבות אישיות וכד' ערעורו ייפסל על ..הסף. כמו כן, לא ניתן לערער על מספר הנקודות שהורדו על שגיאה מסוימת בטעון ש"זה יותר מדי". הניקוד שיורד על שגיאות נפוצות קבוע ואחיד.

לסיום, תשובות על ערעורים הינן סופיות - אין דבר כזה "ערעור על ערעור" - אם לא הוזן לכם ציון סופי נכון לאחר הערעור - פנו למייל הקורס

בהצלחה

    E-mails about Exam
    I will not answer general mails about moed B. The course has too many students for me to address such general mails that are not related to very specific personal issues. If you have a very specific issue, send mail to the course account. The exams this year were easier than in past years, and the grades are generally higher. The exams were fair, both of them, and in fact, the open questions were very easy, and the multiple choice questions were fair.

    The exam forum is now being supported again by the course staff, you're invited to use it but please note the forum rules, DO NOT ask questions that were already answered before Moed A, review the forum before asking.
