Other comments on the Evaluation
Justified absence
Students unable to attend classes in person for justified reasons (official academic exemption, illness etc.) may carry out an essay on a course topic agreed with the teacher, who will evaluate it from a rubric available on the course's website. Academic works presented by the students in the course may be incorporated into the database of a plagiarism detection tool. If this circumstance occurs, the measures included in the Norms of evaluation, revision and claim of the qualifications of bachelor's and master's degree studies may be activated.

Second Examination Call

Students who do not attend or pass the first examination call may attend the second one. In this case, students must take a written exam on 100% of the course contents. The exam will take place on the official date set in the master's calendar. It will be scored from 0 to 10 according to a rubric provided by the teacher. The exam will include a theoretical question and a hypothetical case study that the students will have to solve. The work carried out during the course will not be taken into account. The evaluation system for the second examination call will be also applied in the December call.

Students with special educational needs (SEN)

Students with special educational needs due to specific learning difficulties may be subject to an adaptation of the evaluation system. This adaptation, agreed between the teacher and the students involved, will seek to guarantee the use of all the means necessary for SEN students to demonstrate the achievement of the course objectives.

Working languages

As linguas de traballo do curso serán o galego/portugués, o castelán e o inglés. En principio, o profesor presentará o contido da materia en galego/portugués, aínda que o pode facer en castelán se unha parte significativa do alumnado así o solicitar. O alunado pódese dirixir ao profesor en calquera unha das linguas de traballo ou en calquera outra lingua que o profesor puider compreender. Na sala de aula, é preferíbel o uso do galego/portugués e o castelán.

The use of automatic translators in any learning activity of this course, as well as to communicate with the teacher, is not allowed. Repeated use of machine translation in a report or a review may lead to the suspension of its evaluation.
