Assessment of student's work - individually and/or in groups, either face-to-face or non-presential - will be carried out by the lecturer by weighting appropriatelly the different marks obtained in the activities that were proposed along this course.
Students may opt to follow this course either in the 'Continuous Evaluation' or in the 'Non-Continuous Evaluation' modalities. In both cases the grading of the course will be made according to a numerical system, using values from 0,0 to 10,0 points
according to the current laws that are applicable (R.D. 1125/2003 of 5th September, BOE Nr. 224 of
18th September). A minimum overall mark of 5,0 is required to pass this course.
First Announcement or Edition.
a) 'Continuous Evaluation' modality:
final grade for the course will be calculated by combining the individual marks awarded in the assessment of the
works proposed and elaborated in the practical classes (60% weight) along the course, with the mark awarded for the final test performed
in the date stated by the School's Ruling (40% weight).
Those marks will asess
the behaviour and the implication of the student both in class and
in the realisation of the different programmed activities, plus the
fulfillment of the deadlines for submitting the works that were proposed, and/or the presentation and defence of those works, etc.
Students not reaching the minimum value of 3,5 points out of 10.0 that are required for every section,
they will either need to perform also the assessment in the Second
Announcement date, or to elaborate additional works or practical exercises to achieve
the learning goals that were established for the concerned sections.
There is a two-week time period after the starting date of the course for the concerned students to justify with documents that it is not possible for them to follow the regular process of continuous evaluation.
In order to pass this course, students renouncing to continuous evaluation will be obligued to perform a final test covering the
whole contents of the course, both theoretical and practical, including short questions, reasoning questions, problem solving and development of practical cases. The mark awarded to the student assessment will be the final grade for the course.
A minimum mark of 5.0 points out of 10.0 possible will be required to pass the course.
Second Announcement or Edition.
Students who did not pass the course in the First Announcement,
but that could have passed some specific parts of the theory or practical blocks,
will be allowed to be assessed only regarding the failed parts, keeping the marks formerly awarded for the parts already passed, and applying the same assessment criteria to them.
Students wishing to improve their qualification, or students that failed the course on the First Announcement, will need to assist to the Second Announcement, where they will be assessed about the whole contents of
the course, both theoretical and practical, including short questions, reasoning questions, problem solving and development of practical cases. Students are required to reach a minimum mark of 5.0 points out of 10.0
possible to pass the course.
It is expected an appropriate ethical behaviour of the student. In case of
detecting unethical behaviour (copying, plagiarism, unauthorized use of
electronic devices, etc.) shall be
deemed that the student does not meet the requirements for passing the subject.
In this case, the overall grade for the course in the current academic year will be Fail
