Other comments on the Evaluation

Students can, at first call, decide to be assessed according to a continuous assessment model or by an exam-only assessment. The fact of presenting to the first continuous assessment exam involves opting for this assessment model (otherwise opting for the exam-only asessment model). Once the students choose the continuous assessment model, their grade can never be "Not Submitted". For second call the students will be evaluated using the modality of "exam-only assessment" (some modifications over the original practices can be required). The scores obtained in first call are not preserved for second call.

Plagiarism and copy are not allowed.

1- CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT

To pass the course requires a minimum score of 5 points. The score will be the result to add the scores received in each one of the following parts:

  • Exam 1:
    • Dates: Before the middle of the semester
    • Individually
    • Contents: Theoretical content given until this moment
    • Type: Series of short answer questions and/or test type ones
    • Maximum score = 2 points
  • Exam 2:
    • Dates: Official calendar (coinciding with the exam-only assessment for those that opted by this modality)
    • Individually
    • Contents: Theoretical content given until this moment excepting those that already were assessed in the Exam 1.
    • Type: Series of short answer questions and/or test type ones
    • Maximum score = 4 points
  • Practices:
    • Dates: Since week 3 to week 11
    • In group:
      • Reports / memories of practice and Laboratory practice: A personalized score is asigned to each member of the group according to the following:
      • Final score of practices = (Memory + Practice) * Weighting factor
        • Memory maximum score = 0.5 points
        • Practice maximum score = 3.5 points (verification of the correct operation of the practice and of possible changes to be made in it, in group or individually).
        • Weighting factor = (Follow-up by the teacher + Peers assessment) / 20
          • Follow-up by the teacher: About the work carried out by each student observed by the teacher (0-10)
          • Peers assessment: Within each group. Each student asseses his/her partners about the work they did (0-10). Then, an arithmetic average is calculated for each student.
    • Maximum score= 4 points

2- EXAM-ONLY ASSESSMENT

To pass the course requires a minimum score of 5 points.

  • Theoretical exam:
    • Dates: Official calendar
    • Individually
    • Contents: Given in the whole theoretical part of the course.
