The evaluation of the subject can either follow a continuous assessment strategy (EC) or a single assessment one (EU). The students choose EC if they deliver the solution to the first challenge or autonomous work that they must attend during the course. The percentages expressed in the previous section only reflect the maximum mark obtainable in each type of test in the EC modality; and they are only indicative. The detailed evaluation form is expressed below:
For EC (first call), the final grade will be the weighted geometric mean between the autonomous work grade (TA, 40%) and the corresponding grade for the essay questions exam (E, 60%). The grade of TA will be the arithmetic mean of the marks obtained in each of the challenges / autonomous practical that students have to solve during the semester.
FINAL GRADE (EC) = (TA ^ 0.4) × (E ^ 0.6)
If the laboratory practices assessment is unfit, the grade will be the minimum between the written test score (E) and 3.
Students who choose EU must take a final exam consisting of three parts: a written test analogous to the continuous assessment test (E), a proficiency test in the laboratory and one or more practical tasks (T). The final grade, in this case, is the weighted geometric mean between the theory grade (E, 80%) and practical work (T, 20%), with the condition that the aptitude test is passed. For any student that fails the aptitude test, the final grade will be the minimum between E and 3.
FINAL GRADE (EU) = (T ^ 0.2) × (E ^ 0.8)
Finally, for the second call (June / July), students will be able to continue with the evaluation mode that they had already chosen (keeping the mark of the part -E or TA / T- that they had passed), facing only the failed part - though with possible modifications in the specifications of the practical works; or they may choose to follow EU doing just a final exam as the one just described. The aptitude test will only be necessary if they did not attend all laboratory sessions.
