Previous studies / activities The delivery of these exercises will modify the obtained qualification of the continuous assessment (laboratory
practices and conceptual tests) as explained in the section of "Other comments and second call" in this guide.
It shall be deemed completed when a previous activity fully

Laboratory practises Attendance and active participation in the complete laboratory lessons and practice reports will be assessed.
They will be graded from 0 to 10, provided that the student gets a minimum mark in the
written examination (minimum mark: 4.5/10).
The qualification will be modified by the coefficient introduced in the "Other comments and second call" section in this guide.

Practical tests, real task execution and / or simulated. Short exercises and conceptual tests will be taken during the course (within lecture or laboratory hours; grading from 0 to 10). The mark will be added to the exam mark, provided that the student gets a minimum mark in the written examination (minimum mark: 4.0/10).

Other comments on the Evaluation

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 the course 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 (5% of
the qualification) will be preserved in 2017/2018, provided the student requests that within an established period in the
beginning of the course.


The qualification obtained in the conceptual tests in the course 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 (15% of the qualification)
will be preserved in 2017/2018, 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) 


Additional comments:



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).
