Other comments on the Evaluation

A) FIRST EDITION OF THE RECORDS:

Students can choose continuous evaluation (A.1) or final evaluation (A.2). Students have to tell the lecturer which of the two systems they prefer. In the first two weeks of the classes, those who decide to choose continuous evaluation have to hand in a card (ficha) with their name and surname and a photograph. The teacher will understand that students have chosen final evaluation if they do not hand in that card, or if they do not tell the teacher they have chosen continuous evaluation or if they do not participate in the continuous evaluation tests.

Continuous evaluation is recommended, as it is the most adequate system to learn English.

During exams, students are not allowed to use dictionaries, laptops, mobile phones or other electronic devices.

Total or partial plagiarism in any type of test or exam means the student will be given an automatic fail mark in the subject. Claiming ignorance of what plagiarism entails will not exempt students from their responsibility in this regard.

A.1) Continuous evaluation

In order to follow continuous evaluation, students must take these tests:

- Speaking 20%: Two tests (10%+10%) that will take place on the dates indicated in the course schedule (cronograma).

- Writing (20%): Two tests: (10%+10%) that will take place on the dates indicated in the course schedule (cronograma).

- Listening (10%): one test that will take place on the date indicated in the course schedule (cronograma).

- Reading (10%): one test that will take place on thedate indicated in the course schedule (cronograma).

- Use of English (40%): one test that will take place onthe date indicated in the course schedule (cronograma).

The date of all the continuous evaluation tests will be announced in the course schedule (“cronograma”) published on the Faculty website and also on Moovi.

To pass the subject it will be necessary to:

1) Get a minimum mark of 5 as a result of the arithmetic mean of the written tests (Use of English (40%), Writing (10%+10%), Listening (10%) and Reading (10%).

2) Get a minimum mark of 5 as a result of the arithmetic mean of the two speaking tests (10%+10%).

Continuous evaluation tests or exams not taken will count as a 0 when calculating continuous evaluation final marks. The marks of those parts passed will be kept for the second edition of the records (July 2022):

a) written part of the subject (including Use of English, writing, reading and listening)

b) oral part of the subject (speaking)

A.2) Final evaluation

Students who do not attend classes regularly and who do not take any continuous evaluation tests can follow the final evaluation in the first edition of the records. This will be a final exam (100% of the final mark).

The final written exam will have the following percentages: Use of English (40%), Writing (20%), Reading (10%), Listening (10%).

The final oral exam (only for final evaluation students) will take place on the same day as the final written exam and it will be 20% of the final mark.

In order to pass the subject a minimum mark of 5 will be required both in the written and oral exams.

Final evaluation exams not taken will count as a 0 when calculating final marks.

The date of this final evaluation exam of the first edition of the records will be set by the Faculty and published on its website. The marks of those parts passed (a. oral exam or b. written exam –including use of English, writing, reading y listening–) will be kept for the second edition of the records (July 2022).

B) SECOND EDITION OF RECORDS (July):

Students who fail or do not take the first edition of the records exams will be assessed in the second edition of the records in July, with a final exam similar to that of the first edition of the records:

- The written exam will have the following percentages: Use of English (40%), Writing (20%), Reading (10%), Listening (10%).

- The oral exam will take place on the same day as the written exam and it will be 20% of the final mark.

In order to pass the subject a minimum mark of 5 will be required in both the written and oral exams.

Second edition of the records exams not taken will count as a 0 when calculating final marks.

The date of this July exam will be set by the Faculty and published on the University Web page.

Students who do not pass the subject in July 2022 will have to resit the subject in the following academic years and the parts of the exams passed during this academic course will not be valid for the following academic years.
