Students who opt for continuous assessment should follow the classes regularly and work on the Journalism Specialization Project. This project will be developed by groups of six students (no more, no less), and it is highly recommended that the members be the same in this subject and in the second semester. The evaluation of the Project will have a weight of 70% in the final grade and the criteria to be evaluated will be the following:
- Idea, originality and innovation of the project.
- Approach to a business plan that will include SWOT analysis, study of audiences and the competence of the selected journalism specialization niche.
- Original model and layout for a printed specialized magazine (it will be used for the second semester).
- All this will be presented at the end of the semester, along with an executive summary, in an act of defense before a court, in time and form that will explain in detail the teacher.
Of that 70%, within the group itself a cooperative evaluation will be established that will represent 10%.
The remaining 30% of the evaluation will correspond to a theoretical test, based on the contents set by the teacher and worked during the classes and seminar.
The groups will work organized as newsrooms and have the obligation to attend (in full) all the meetings to follow up on the Project, as well as to defend it at the end of the semester (range of examination).
Students who opt for this modality must notify the teacher before October 11, 2018. In the presentation class of the asigntura, the teacher will promptly explain the guidelines of this evaluation and inform the virtual campus about the subject (manuals, readings and notes) that will enter the exam. In addition, a tutoring will be convened with the students who opt for the NO Continua to solve doubts about it.
