Abstract: The paper discusses some approaches we have applied in our department to overcome some current problems identified in our higher education system. During the last few years, we have developed a detailed study manual which guides students during their preparation for seminars. The study process is supported by formative tests and assignments for self-preparation. Two summative knowledge term tests and a comprehensive term assignment are also presented. Moreover, the summative and formative knowledge tests are targeted at higher levels of taxonomies of educational objectives in the cognitive domain. The majority of activities are supported by LMS Moodle and custom system for evaluation of term assignments. All course activities are tied together by a complex scoring system. We believe that the identified problems are common to the majority of higher educational institutions in our region, and our solutions can serve as inspiration for other academics.
