German term or phrase: Prüfungsleistung
The term was translated as "examination", but I'm not happy with that. It's taken from the "Examination Regulations" of a university:Prüfungsleistungen zum Erwerb von Leistungszertifikaten (Kategorie A und B) und zum Abschluss der Masterprüfung sind

1. die mündlichen Prüfungen (§ 8),
2. die Klausurarbeiten und sonstigen schriftlichen Arbeiten (§ 9),
3. die Masterthesis und Kolloquium (§ 10)

Thank you for answering. "Examination requirements" does seem like the best translation for the excerpt I gave. However I also used "assessments" because it was referring to things like homework and papers which counted towards a grade, but had nothing to do with an examination. Thank you though.
