In the last 25 years, the Hungarian higher education went through an enormous change. In the process the trend of education has changed from an elite training to the so called “mass production” of people with bachelor degree. Every corporation demands some kind of degree from their applicants, because of this most of the young adults study in higher education. While in the nineties students tended to have intrinsic motivation, nowadays they only have external motivation. Previous researches among the students of Keleti Faculty of Business and Management at Óbuda University showed that more than half of the them don’t know what they want to achieve in their life or after their graduation. Unfortunately, most of them don’t know how to deal with their “freedom” and have to learn the hole curriculum at the end of the semester. The purpose of this research is to prove how the frequency of assessment – changing from two a semester to a weekly regularity - influences those “wandering” students’ performance based on data gathered over the years among hundreds of students.
