Other comments on the Evaluation

Continuous assessment: The continuous assessment activities will be carried out during the teaching period and correspond to 30% of the grade.

Final Exam: counts for 70% of the course grade. The exam will be taken on the official date set by the EEI direction.

Requirements to pass the course:

It is necessary to achieve a minimum score of 40% in the final exam, that is 2.8 / 7. 

If this minimum is not reached, the course will be considered as not passed and, although the sum of the exam grade and the continuous evaluation is higher than 5, the maximum grade that will be included in the academic records will be 4.5 points.

Renouncing continuous assessment: Students that do not follow the continuous assessment activities, after receiving authorization from the EEI direction, will be evaluated through a final exam on the contents of all the course, covering both lecture and labo contents, counting for 100% of the grade. A minimum mark of 5 (50%) will be required to pass the course.

July exam (2nd Edition): In the July edition, the continuous assessment marks will be also considered (only marks obtained in the current academic year). The characteristics of the exam will be the same as the first edition, and will be taken on the official date set by the EEI direction. Further in the July edition, the student can choose to be evaluated through a final exam on the contents of all the course, covering both lecture and labo contents, counting for 100% of the grade. A minimum mark of 5 (50%) will be required to pass the course. The student must notify the teacher of their choice well in advance.

Extraordinary Call: The extraordinary call exam contents will cover the entire course, including both lecture and labo contents, counting for 100% o the grade. A minimum mark of 5 (50%) will be required to pass the course.

Ethical commitment: Students are expected to carry out their work in accordance with an appropriate ethical behaviour. If the professor detects a behaviour that constitutes academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, use of unauthorized electronic devices, for example) the student will be deemed not to meet all the criteria to pass the course, and will be informed that the final grade of this course will be FAIL (0.0). The use of any electronic device will not be allowed during the evaluation tests, unless expressly authorized. Introducing an unauthorized electronic device into the exam room will be considered reason enough for not passing the course in the present academic year, and the final grade will be: FAIL (0.0).

Attention: If there is any mismatch between the contents of the 3 language versions of this teaching guide, those included in the Spanish version will be considered valid.
