In this module the minimum required mark to pass is 5 out of 10.
The written examination of students not able to attend laboratory sessions will be graded 100% of the module mark, provided the student resigns from continuous assessment (and gets the required school approval) within the period established for that purpose. This examination will assess the subject overall competencies.
The qualification obtained in the laboratory practices in any of the two previous years (5% of the qualification) will be preserved in the current year, provided the student requests that within an established period in the beginning of the course.
The qualification obtained in the conceptual tests in any of the two previous years (15% of the qualification) will be preserved in the current year, provided the student requests that within an established period in the beginning of the course.The rating obtained only remain within the language chosen at the time in which
he studied the subject.
Comments about continuous assessment:
The handing of previous exercises (within the established period for each exercise) will modify the qualification of laboratory practices and follow-up conceptual tests as following explained:
Qualification of laboratory practices = K•(overall practice grade)/(nr of laboratory sessions)
Qualification of conceptual tests = K •(addition of tests’ grades)/(nr of tests)
K = (nr of previous exercises delivered)/(total nr of previous exercises)
The absence from a laboratory session, even justified, does not lead to the repetition of the session.
The absence from a test, even justified, does not lead to the repetition of the test.
The date and place of of examinations of all calls shall be determined by the center before the start of course
and will make them public .
Ethical commitment: it is expected an adequate 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 rating in the current academic year will be Fail (0.0).
The use of any electronic device for the assessment tests is not allowed unless explicitly authorized. The fact of introducing
unauthorized electronic device in the examination room will be considered reason for not passing the subject in the current
academic year and will hold overall rating (0.0).
