|Multiple choice tests
The purpose of these tests, which will be carried out in the date of the official announcement of examinations, is to assess the level of theoretical knowledge acquired by students in classroom sessions. Written tests are multiple choices, multiple responses, in which students can achieve a numerical score between 0 and 10, according to current legislation.
|Troubleshooting and / or exercises
The evaluation of the knowledge gained by students in seminars will be through a written exam, in the official announcement of examinations, in which the student must solve 4 or 5 problems related to the subject under study.
The exam will be graded according to the current legislation, with a numerical final grade between 0 and 10.
|Reports / memories of practice
After each laboratory session, the student should prepare a detailed report including aspects such as objective and theoretical foundations, procedure followed, materials used, results and interpretation.
The aspects considered in the evaluation are the content of the report, the understanding of the work done, the ability of summarising, quality of presentation, and the personal contribution.
The final score, between 0 and 10, will be the average of the marks obtained in the various reports made.
The final exam,
consisting of two different parts, a test-type quiz for theory content and a
set of exercises, will be considered for the final score weighting only when
they were rated greater than or equal to 4. Although the average score could be
equal or greater than 5, if the qualification of any of the parts of the final
exam be lower than 4, the final score will be the lowest mark obtained in the
final exam (which is the one that does not permit to calculate the average
mark). The attendance to any lab session or any seminar test means that the
student is being evaluated and therefore a qualification of “not presented” is no
The marks of continuous
evaluation (seminars test and lab experiments) and the marks of final exam higher
than 5 (test quiz or exercises) obtained in the first call will be kept for the
that obtain officially the renunciation to the continuous evaluation will be
evaluated by the final exam, to be held in the official date for the two calls.
The final qualification will consist of a 50% of exercises and a 50% of theory (test-type)
exam. A rate equal to or greater than 4 in both parts is necessary in order to
pass the exam.
The use of
electronic devices during the assessment tests will be not permitted. Introducing
an unauthorized electronic device into the examination room, will be considered
as a FAIL (0.0 points) in the current academic year.
The student is
expected to present an adequate ethical behavior. If an unethical behavior is
detected (copying, plagiarism, unauthorized use of electronic devices, and
others) it is considered that the student does not meet the requirements for
passing the subject. In this case, the final grade in the current academic
year will be FAIL (0.0 points).
