To pass the subject, students must obtain at least 5 out of 10 possible points. The students can choose between two models of evaluation, as described below:
- MODEL A:
1) Continuous evaluation (60%): each learning unit will be evaluated independently (20%) by means of tasks such as assignments, exams or case-studies depending on their structure, development and particular needs. Students must attend all learning units.
2) Final exam (40%) which includes all learning units. To pass the subject, students must pass this exam (at least 5 out of 10 possible points).
- MODEL B:
Final exam (100%) which includes all learning units.
In the September and December exams exclusively the model B will be applied.
Final tests characteristics:
The contents of the tests are developed during this course both in theoretical sessions and practices (described in the Content section).
In the ordinary call, the student can choose which modality to be evaluated (provided they meet the attendance requirements).
* Model A (continuous evaluation):
The students must have attended all the practice sessions.
The test represents the 40% of the mark. It will be composed of 20 multiple-choice questions with four possible answers and only one correct.
The duration of the test will be informed alive, usually will last 45 min approximately (can be modified by space requirements).
* Model B (only one test, required for those who had not attended practice sessions or had not delivered the tasks):
Any student may choose to stand for this model.
The exam represents the 100% of the mark for the course. It will consist of 20 multiple-choice questions with four possible answers and only one correct, and 3 open questions regarding the theory and practice.
The duration of the test will be informed alive, usually will last one and a half hours approximately (can be modified by space requirements).
- In the multiple-choice questions, the student must mark the correct answer, which will be unique. Every wrong answer subtracts 1/3 of one correct. Unanswered questions do not subtract points.
- In the open questions, the correctness of the answer adjusted to the information provided in the question and the content of the subject is valued. Misspellings and errors in expression measurement units will be penalized in the final mark.
- It is recommended to attend the exam with calculator.
- Students should carry an official identification (university card, identity card, driving license or passport).
- All students who need to certify their attendance to the exam, must fill in the appropriate form, and present it to the head professor at the end of the test.
