Continuous assessment (denoted EC) will have a
weight of 30% in the final mark, and will include the lab mark (20%, denoted ECL) and the class mark (10%, denoted ECA).
mark ECA will be evaluated by means of tests on the topics covered in the
mark ECL will be evaluated by the lab reports and tests on the topics covered
in the laboratory sessions. It is mandatory the attendance to 10 out of 12 lab sessions to
obtain the mark ECL.
students unable to attend the continuous assessment and who have been granted
with the waiver of the continuous assessment have the possibility of taking a
final test to obtain a REC mark with a weight of 30% of the final mark. This test will include the
contents of the lab sessions (weight of 20%, denoted RECL) and the topics
covered in the lectures (weight of 10%, denoted RECA).
remaining 70% of the final mark will be obtained by taking a final exam. This will consist of two
parts: a theoretical part (denoted T) with a weight of 30% of the final mark,
and another part on problem solving (denoted P) with a weight of 40% of the
final mark. The theoretical part will consist of: (1) a qualifying test
(denoted TT) on fundamental theoretical concepts, and (2) a test with
questions of development (denoted TC). The qualifying test TT will have a
weight of 10% in the final mark, and it is required a minimum score of 50% in
it. The test TC will have a weight of 20% in the final mark. Those students not
attending the final exam will obtain a mark of non-presented.
the “fin de carrera” exam and any other ones held on dates and/or times
different from those officially set by the School of Industrial Engineering
(E.E.I.), could have an exam format different from the one previously described
(EC o REC, T and P), although each part of the exam will hold its value in the
mark G for the continuous assessment modality:
G = ECL + ECA +
TT + TC + P, where TC and P are only considered if the test TT is passed.
Final mark G for
the assessment at the end of the course and July (RECL and RECA only for those
students granted with the waiver of the continuous assessment):
G = ECL (or RECL)
+ ECA (or RECA) + TT + TC + P, where TC an P are only considered if the test TT
