|Objective questions exam
The purpose of these tests, which will be carried out in the date of the official announcement of examinations, is to assess the level of theoretical knowledge acquired by students in classroom sessions. Written tests are multiple choices, multiple responses, in which students can achieve a numerical score between 0 and 10, according to current legislation.
|Problem and/or exercise solving
The evaluation of the knowledge gained by students in seminars will be through a written exam, in the official announcement of examinations, in which the student must solve 4 or 5 problems related to the subject under study.
The exam will be graded according to the current legislation, with a numerical final grade between 0 and 10.
|Report of practices, practicum and external practices
After each laboratory session, the student should answer an oral question or prepare a detailed report including aspects such as objective and theoretical foundations, procedure followed, materials used, results and interpretation.
The aspects considered in the evaluation are the content of the report, the understanding of the work done, the ability of summarising, quality of presentation, and the personal contribution.
The final score, between 0 and 10, will be the average of the marks obtained in the various reports made and/or writing or oral test that could be done for each practice.
The final exam, consisting of two different parts, a test-type quiz for theory
content and a set of exercises, will be considered for the final score weighting
only when they were rated greater than or equal to 4. Although the average
score could be equal or greater than 5, if the qualification of any of the
parts of the final exam be lower than 4, the final score will be the lowest
mark obtained in the final exam (which is the one that does not permit to
calculate the average mark). The attendance to any lab session or any
seminar test means that the student is being evaluated and therefore a qualification
of “not presented” is no longer possible.
The marks of continuous evaluation (seminars test and lab experiments)
and the marks of final exam higher than 5 (test quiz or exercises) obtained in
the first call will be kept for the second call.
Those students that obtain officially the renunciation to the continuous
evaluation will be evaluated by the final exam, to be held in the official date
for the two calls. The final qualification will consist of a 50% of exercises
and a 50% of theory (test-type) exam. A rate equal to or greater than 4 in both
parts is necessary in order to pass the exam.
The student is expected to present an adequate ethical behavior. If an
unethical behavior is detected (copying, plagiarism, unauthorized use of
electronic devices, and others) it is considered that the student does not meet
the requirements for passing the subject. In this case, the final grade in
the current academic year will be FAIL (0.0 points).
The use of electronic devices during the assessment tests will be not permitted. Introducing an unauthorized electronic device into the examination room, will be considered as a FAIL (0.0 points) in the current academic year.
