There are two evaluation systems to which students can welcome. CONTINUOUS EVALUATION (recommended), consisting of two parts: 1. Practice (70%): This option is based on the continuous execution of 5 mandatory practices that students must deliver throughout the course. At the beginning of the semester, the students will have an explanatory dossier of the whole subject, which will include a work schedule with the stipulated delivery dates. In this way, the student can organize their tasks and will know from the beginning the days of mandatory delivery of jobs. The qualification of these written exercises equals 60% of the mark in the subject. Each of these works is valued differently according to their importance in relation to the competencies of the subject. The present dossier contains the rules and specific objectives of each practice and its value in the note. 2. Attendance and active participation in the classes (30%). It is indispensable to attend 80% of the practical and theoretical classes. In the continuous assessment, the participation, debate and involvement of the student begins. Therefore, in the continuous evaluation, the delivery of all the practices and attendance to class are fundamental to overcome the subject. In the event that a student suspends the subject, the September and extraordinary call will be presented in the mode of NO CONTINUOUS EVALUATION.
