# FUZZY SET THEORY BASED STUDENT EVALUATION

### Zsolt Csaba Johanyák

#### Abstract

The evaluation of students’ learning achievements contains in several cases a lot of decisions that are based on the expertise and the opinion of the evaluator. Often this opinion is from nature vague and therefore this field is a good application area for fuzzy set theory based supporting methods and software implementations. In this paper, a new method called FUSBE (Fuzzy Set Theory Based Evaluation) is presented. It supports the scoring and grading of the students allowing the evaluator to express his or her judgment by the means of fuzzy sets that are later aggregated using fuzzy arithmetic. The method is transparent and easy-to-implement.
