  Description Qualification Evaluated Competencess
Laboratory practises Assessment of the laboratory sessions:

The laboratory sessions will be evaluated in a continuous way, on each session. The applied criteria are:

- A minimum attendance of 80%
- Punctuality
- Previous task preparation of the sessions
- Make the most of the session

The practical sessions will be held in groups of two students. The documents of the practices will be available prior to the sessions.
The students will fill report, that will be delivered when the session ends. This report serves to justify both the attendance and how they have done the work asked for.
Other Evaluation of Blocks of Topics: This part is intended to emphasize the self learning process and provide feedback to the students. It's main aim is to provide honest and objective information about the learning process. These individual exams will be held by electronics means, if possible. It can consists on a wide set of test questions, short answers and analytical numerical problems. 20
Other Individual Exam: It will consist on an individual written exam near the end of the semester, in the dates established by the head teachers. The exam will be a combination of any of the following types of exercises:
- Test Questions
- Short Answer Questions
- Analysis Problems
- Practical Cases
Other comments on the Evaluation


All the students will be evaluated of continuous way by means of the following procedure:

Along the semester the students will realise several partial proofs and will obtain a note by each proof. The note of partial (NP) will obtain  of the average of the notes of the proofs.

Also the long of the semester the students will do practices of laboratory and will obtain a note by each practice. The sessions without assistance will be marked with a zero. The note of laboratory (NL) will obtain  of the average of the notes of the practices, with the following exceptions:

    a) If the assistance to the sessions of practices is inferior to 80% the total note of the same (NL) will be zero.

    b) If the average of the notes obtained in the partial proofs (*NP) is inferior to 3,33, the note of laboratory (NL) will be zero.

Also along the semester partial exams will be made. Each partial exam will have a grade. The grade of these exams (NP) is the average of the grades in each one.

The qualification of continuous evaluation (CC) procedure will be calculated with this formula:

CC = 0,8 x NP + 0,2 x NL

The students can opt to that qualification CC becomes the qualification in records (CA), without need to take any additional exam, as long as they fulfil all the following requirements:

a) The average grade of the partial exams (NP) must be great or equal than 6,25 points.

b) The grade obtained in all the partial exams must be at least 3,75 points.

c) Obtain a laboratory grade (NL) great or equal to 7 points.

A final exam (EF) will be held in scheduled dates in June and July.

The grades in records (CA) for those students that do not want to or can not opt to the note of continuous qualification method will be obtained with arrangement to the following formula:

CA = 0,2 x NP + 0,2 x NL + 0,6 x EF

For the present academic year, grades NL and NP obtained in the previous two academic courses are still valid with the following exceptions:

- Those students that want to use the previous NL grade with less than 7 points can not apply for the continuous evaluation procedure, and must pass the final exam (EF)

- Those student that want to use the previous NP grade can not apply for the continuous evaluation procedure, and must pass the final exam (EF)

Those students granted with an exemption from the school direction not to take part on the continuous evaluation process, will be evaluated at the same day and time established by the school direction board, in the following way:

- A two part test

1- A written exam identical to the final examination, with a weight of
70% on the final grade and lasting a  maximum of two hours.

2- A specific laboratory test, with a weight of 30% on the final grade and lasting a maximum of two hours. This take will take place immediately after the written exam in the laboratories of the same school.

To pass the course, in any of the previous cases, it is necessary to achieve a final grade equal or higher than 5 points.


It is very important that the students keep updated the profile in the FAITIC platform. All communications related with this course will be made through this platform. All individual communications will be made through the email listed in this platform.

The students can solve doubts related with the laboratory previous activities in the personal attention hours (tutoring time), or by any other contact procedure available in FAITIC.

The students must meet the deadlines for all the activities.

All the achieved results must be justified, in any of the exams or activities. None of the achieved results will be taken for good if no explanation is given about the method used to find them. The selected method for solving a problem is considered when grading the solution.

When writing the solutions and answers in reports and tests, avoid spelling mistakes and unreadable symbols.

Exams lacking some of the sheets will not be graded.

Use of cell phones, notes or books is forbidden during exams.
