Being a special subject, all of the contents and skills acquired throughout the degree are measured transversely. Modality The evaluation is divided into three sections: work process, written report, and oral presentation.
Prior to the defense, the student must ask for his/her tutor approval electronically. Deadlines for each call for these procedures are included in the TFG’s academic guide.
The students must comply with the requirements indicated by their tutor in terms of the number of face-to-face tutoring, tasks, etc. You must also present on the date specified in the guide, the TFG memory following the requirements indicated in the same work guide. In case the tutor considers that both the process carried out and the report are adequate, the student may present his work before a court. The TFG guide specifies the characteristics of the poster, exhibition time, evaluation rubric, etc.
The final mark will be the sum of the following sections:
- Process 30%
- Written report 30%
- Presentation and poster 40%
A score of at least 5 out of 10 for each section is necessary to pass the subject.
In the TFG’s academic guide you can see the details of the evaluation of each section, delivery procedures as well as the formal requirements of the presentation.
Consequence of the exceptional situation caused by COVID-19, and given the need to adapt the Spanish university system to non-attendance, the development of teaching activity corresponding to the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic year will be subject to the following changes in the teaching guide that are specified as an addendum to the previously approved for the subject.
System and evaluation criteria of the subject:
The Final Degree Project will undergo a series of modifications due to the impossibility of making a face-to-face defense of it. The modifications will be the following:
1. The defense will be carried out preferably using the Google Meet tool from the virtual campus (Universite). This will imply that all students will be distributed by courts, with a different “meet” room corresponding to each court. Students will be distributed in the act of defense through a schedule, which will indicate the time they should be connected, the start time and the end time.
2. The times for the defense of the work will remain unchanged, but the defense of the poster will be replaced by a presentation in PowerPoint format, the screen of which will be shared with the court. The characteristics and contents of the defense document in PowerPoint will be:
a. The defense document should be made up of 4-6 slides.
b. The contents, depending on the type of TFG, must consist of the following sections (distributed between compulsory and optional) to respect the idiosyncrasy previously mentioned:
1. Introduction, conceptualization.
2. Objective (s)
5. Approach of future intervention
3. The following recommendations are made to students for a smooth and correct presentation of the TFG defense document:
a. Do not use embedded videos on the slides.
b. Do not use photos with an excessive level of definition.
c. Use graphics and photos with free use license. Otherwise, the authors must be asked for permission.
d. Do not use photos of people without having requested the relevant permissions for their use.
4. The fact that the defense is “on-line” will make some items of the evaluation rubric disappear from it. Specifically, those that refer to communication skills in the presentation:
a. Number 15 (the volume and tone of voice is appropriate), as it can be affected by the quality of the connection.
b. The number 18 (maintains correct posture and eye contact), since it does not exist.
The scores by sections will be maintained, without counting the commented items.
5. The administrative process (time and form) and the subject guide will remain unchanged in terms of the mandatory deadlines for students who want to defend in the June call.
The correction criteria will continue to be the same as in the original approach:
• Process 30%
• Memory 30%
• Defending. Here the format changes as we have indicated above, becoming an online defense using a PPT document. Defense percentage remains the same (40%).
