Troubleshooting and / or exercises The student must solve problems or exercises on his/her own in a prescribed period of time and previously established conditions. This test could be face-to-face or virtual (using chat, email, forum, audio-conference, etc.) 40 CB1

Other comments on the Evaluation

1. CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT

CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT TESTS (40%)

- Mark A0 (20%) will be obtained from short answer tests on topics of Parts I and II

- Mark L0 (20%) will be obtained from a problem solving test on topics of Part III.1 (10%) and from the open lab report (or the topic report) corresponding to Part III.2 (10%). Only students that have regularly attended the lab sessions can obtain the mark L0

FINAL EXAM (60%)

- It is held in the December-January call

- Mark T1 (30%) will be obtained from a short answer test on topics of Parts I and II

- Mark P1 (30%) will be obtained from a problem solving test on topics of Parts I and II

GLOBAL MARK

- The global mark G1 is obtained as

G1 = T1 + P1 + L0 + A0

- To pass the course, a student must obtain a global mark G1 equal to or higher than 5

2. END-TERM ASSESSMENT

EXAM THAT REPLACES CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT TESTS (40%)

- It is held on the same date as the final exam in the December-January call

- Mark A1 (20%) will be obtained from a short answer test on topics of Parts I and II

- Mark L1 (20%) will be obtained from a problem solving test on topics of Part III.1

GLOBAL MARK

- In this case the global mark G1 is obtained as

G1 = T1 + P1 + L1 + A1

- To pass the course, a student must obtain a global mark G1 equal to or higher than 5

- A student that had previously obtained marks L0 or A0 (or both) would choose between:

a) answering the test corresponding to mark L1 and/or mark A1, in such a way that the new mark L1 replaces L0 and/or the new mark A1 replaces A0

b) holding mark L0 and/or mark A0 instead of answering the test corresponding to mark L1 and/or mark A1 , respectively

3. ASSESSMENT IN THE SECOND CALL (JUNE-JULY)

FINAL EXAM (60%)

- It is held in the June-July call

- Mark T2 (30%) will be obtained from a short answer test on topics of Parts I and II

- Mark P2 (30%) will be obtained from a problem solving test on topics of Parts I and II

EXAM THAT REPLACES CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT TESTS (40%)

- It is held on the same date as the final exam in the June-July call

- Mark A2 (20%) will be obtained from a short answer test on topics of Parts I and II

- Mark L2 (20%) will be obtained from a problem solving test on topics of Part III.1

GLOBAL MARK

- In this case the global mark G2 is obtained as

G2 = T2 + P2 + L2 + A2

- To pass the course, a student must obtain a global mark G2 equal to or higher than 5

- A student that had previously obtained marks L0, L1, A0 or A1 would choose between:

a) answering the test corresponding to mark L2 and/or mark A2, in such a way that the new mark L2 and/or the new mark A2 will replace the marks of the same type (L0 or L1 and/or A0 or A1, respectively)

b) holding the most recent marks of each type (L0 or L1 and/or A0 or A1) instead of answering the test corresponding to mark L2 and/or mark A2, respectively

4. NOTATION FOR MARKS

- L = the latest mark among L0, L1 and L2

- A = the latest mark among A0, A1 and A2

- T= T1 in December-January call (1st edition) or T2 in June-July call (2nd edition)

- P = P1 in December-January call (1st edition) or P2 in June-July call (2nd edition)

- G = G1 in December-January call (1st edition) or G2 in June-July call (2nd edition)

- In any of the calls, the global mark G is obtained as

G = T + P + L + A

- To pass the course, a student must obtain a global mark G equal to or higher than 5

5. SUPPLEMENTARY ASSESSMENT RULES

- Presentation of DNI or any other identification document is compulsory during tests and exams

- Resources and material that can be used in the tests and final exams:

a) In problem solving tests on topics of Parts I and II (corresponding to marks P1 and P2) it is allowed to employ notes about theory adequately bound (this includes both the Department lecture notes on the subject and the handwritten notes of the student, exclusively about theory), one textbook and one mathematics handbook (Bronshtein or similar). It is forbidden the use of any workbook or collection of worked out problems

b) In any other case, the use of any additional resources is forbidden

c) Students should not possess or use any electronic device during the tests and exams, unless specifically authorised to do so. The mere fact that a student carries an unauthorised electronic device into the examination room will result in failing the subject in the present academic year and the global mark will be "suspenso" (0.0)

- The tests and exams will be jointly defined and assessed by the teaching team of the subject

- The dates for the final exams at each call will be assigned by the board of directors of the School of Industrial Engineering (E.E.I.)

- The exams corresponding to the “fin de carrera” call, as well as any exam held on date and time other than the dates and times stated by the E.E.I. for official exams, could have a different format than the one described above. Nevertheless, each mark (T, P, L, A) will hold its value to calculate the global mark G

- The date and hours for revision of marks and tests results will be announced in advance. Revision out of this date and these hours will be possible only if a reasonable reason for non-attendance is documented

6. ETHICAL COMMITMENT

Every student is expected to follow an appropriate ethical behaviour. In the case that unethical conduct is detected (copy, plagiarism, utilisation of unauthorised electronic devices, or others), it will be considered that the student does not fulfil the necessary requirements to pass the subject. In this case, the global mark in the present academic year will be "suspenso" (0.0)
