The subject can be approved through two evaluation models, but the student will have to communicate by mail to the teacher during the first month of the course the option he chooses:
The continuous evaluation is subdivided into two parts:
The theory (40%) will be evaluated through two tests:
An exam on reading one of the three books with large sports reports included in the "mandatory bibliography".
An examination of all the content and material taught and recommended in class, detailed in the "content" section, and the book "Manual sports journalism".
The practice (60%). The practical part of the subject revolves around the development of a journalistic project: a means of niche sports journalism (sport, focus, format and / or geographic location). The launching of this journalistic initiative is divided into two phases: the proposal and definition of the project and the subsequent elaboration of the contents. Each project will be materialized in a common publication on the Medium digital platform and on the three main social networks (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). There, all the practices of the subject will be housed and disseminated, which in some cases will require the use of programs or tools that will be explained in class.
This part will consist of the following exercises:
Practice 1: Value proposal (6%)
Practice 2: Journalistic project (9%)
Practice 3: News (6%)
Practice 4: Interview (9%)
Practice 5: Chronicle (12%)
Practice 6: Report (18%)
It is essential to pass both parts separately, in at least 50%, to pass the subject. Either of the two approved parts is retained for the September convocation.
The participation, the debate and the involvement of the student in the classes, especially in the talks, may suppose an extra point for each student.
Those students who are not going to follow the continuous evaluation must obtain the material and the topics offered and exposed in class and the manuals of the subject that are indicated in the program. The student will undergo a theoretical exam (40% of the total of the final grade) and a practical one (60% of the final grade), different from the students who take the continuous assessment.
The theoretical exam will consist of two parts: a test and one or two questions to be developed on any of the contents seen in class or included at the teacher's suggestion during the semester. To overcome the theoretical part, the student must at least overcome, at least 50%, each of the two questions that comprise the theoretical exam. In no case, will they retain in June any of the parts approved for September if they suspend the other.
