Grading MSc theses at IIK
Examination of the MSc thesis at IIK
Shortly after a MSc thesis is submitted an external and an internal censor are assigned by the Head of Department. The censors evaluate the work according to the guidelines given in Evaluation of MSc thesis and provide their comments in the evaluation form within three months. The grade is finally agreed upon in a censor meeting conducted by the two censors before the deadline of the evaluation. The grade must be registered in Inspera.
Documents to be used in the process:
- Procedure for quality assurance of the examination of MSc theses at IIK (PDF) Norwegian
- Evaluation form (PDF)English
- Guidelines for evaluation of MSc theses at IIK (PDF)English
- NTNUs generic description of MSc thesis grades for the NMT area
- A guideline for conversion from an evaluation in percent points for the A-F scale
Registering the grade in Inspera
Once system access is clear, both censors are given access to Inspera Assessment. From there, you will receive a link to the specific thesis you will be evaluating. From there, you can access both the thesis and additional submitted documents (if any), and the registration page.
Both censors must register the grade in Inspera, when the thesis evaluation is done. When both are done registering the grade, the censors must also verify the final grade. We recommend to conduct this registration as an interaction during the censor meeting, to avoid mistakes and save time. Note: It is important that both censors register the grade first, then verify it. Do not verify the grade before both censors have completed the registration.
