The new academic year has started in the Training Office of the Institute for the Humanities and IT. The main reason for creating the Office is an introduction of new methods aimed at helping students with mastering their professional competence. For the last few years the Training Office has become the start position for modern pedagogical innovations oriented to practical training improvement for students of IGUMO departments.
September, 26 and 28, 2012 Prof. K. Magomedov, Deputy Rector for Academic Projects, professor of the Management and Mathematical Modeling Professorial Chair, PhD (Engineering), held lectures «Methods of Comparative Scaling» and «Methods of Statistical Analysis of Expert Information» within the frameworks of discipline «Management Decisions» for the 5-year full-time students of the IGUMO Law Department.
The task didn't puzzle the future managers and economists. The Institute for the Humanities and IT has always paid enough attention to fundamental mathematical and scientifical training.
The results of IGUMO students' Q-data about the quality of education were taken as bench-mark data. It was two years ago impersonal data collected when the respondents were the third-year students. Lecturers' surnames (test objects) were replaced by numbers and students' surnames (experts) were not initially noted.
The students in their turn were evaluated by the teaching stuff. IGUMO has set in a point rating system fixing success of each student at each lecture. The majority of students got 10 points for two solved tasks. Such practice makes it possible for students to pass their exams according to the total sum of points they got during the term.
This term the five-year students are to deal with at least six interesting and useful tasks. It is useful not only for their future practice but for diploma project which is actually on the way.
