Subject evaluation will be as follows: - FINAL EXAM 80% (minimum score 4.5) - LABORATORY PRACTICES 10% - PROPOSED WORKS 10% The final exam will be in written form and shall consist of 3 PROBLEMS, duration about 2,5 hours, allowed materials: one-page equations formulary, tables-graphics, psychrometric chart and non-programmable calculator. Observations: (1) Students will attend the final exam properly identified by identity card, university card or any other valid official document. (2) Students will have to bring to the exam their own one-page equations formulary, the Moran-Shapiro's tables-graphics of properties, a psychrometric chart and a non-programmable calculator. The tables and graphs will be bound or stapled. (3) The final qualification of the subject is calculated in the following way, and a minimum score of 4.5 on the exam and to deliver all the proposed tasks and the laboratory report is necessary to be able to average with these parts: 80% exam, 10% laboratory practices and 10% proposed works. It is required to obtain a mark of 3/10 in each of the exam parts (related to the contents of the course). (4) It's not allowed the use and presence on the examination tables and surroundings of mobile phones, tablets or any other unauthorized electronic devices, neither backpacks or bags which will be deposited at the entrance of the classroom. (5) Students who make use of the Article 2.4 of the Student Evaluation Policy and who request in advance an overall examination of the subject must perform an additional examination, just after the final exam, consisting of 3 or 4 problems on the contents of the laboratory practices and the proposed works during the course. The score obtained at this additional examination will be their final practices-and-works score and will replace any previous qualification that students may have in this section. (6) Article 9.4 of the Student Evaluation Policy will be scrupulously applied in relation to the use of illegal or fraudulent means/devices during the examination. Its non-compliance will imply the exam cancellation and the student will score 0 (fail) in that exam. accordingly, the teacher will send a detailed report on the incident to the Degree Coordinator and to the respective Department Director.
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 experience the following changes in the teaching guide, that are specified as an addendum to the former version approved for the course.
THEORY CLASSES: Teaching is taught live or deferred (previously recorded class) in the time periods established for the course in the official schedule of the degree, with the participation of the students. It is preferably done using the Google Meet tool from the virtual campus (Universite). The sessions will be recorded and subsequently made available to students through the virtual campus.
PRACTICAL CLASSES: In the laboratory practices, the presence has been replaced by the live broadcast of them through the Google Meet tool (data collection in laboratory equipment). When this is not possible, the data necessary for its realization will be provided directly. This ensures the acquisition of the corresponding skills.
TUTORIES: They are carried out, at the request of the students, through the Google Meet tool, at a time agreed by the teacher-student. They also can be done through email, answering the questions raised.
System and evaluation criteria of the subject:
The final mark covers these three parts:
A) FINAL NON-PRESENTIAL/ORAL EXAM (70%). It will consist of a part of theoretical or theoretical-practical questions (20-40% of the exam grade) and another of problems (60-80% of the exam grade). A minimum mark of 30% is required in each of the course units evaluated in the exam, as well as a minimum grade of 4 to average with the rest of the evaluable items. The possibility of taking an oral exam as a substitute or as a complement to the written non-contact exam is considered if the teaching staff so determines.
B) LABORATORY PRACTICES (20%). Delivery of a report of the 4 practices carried out in groups of 2-3 people, answering the questions raised in the scripts. A minimum grade of 4 is required in the report to average with the rest of the evaluable items.
C) PROPOSED WORK (10%). Delivery of the 5 individual assignments assigned during the course. A minimum grade of 3 is required in each of the deliverables to average with the rest of the evaluable items.
In the case of those students who completed the laboratory sessions in previous courses and want to validate the obtained grade, the percentages will be 80-10-10% (exam, laboratory and continuous assessment). In order to be evaluated with the new percentages, they will have to attend to the laboratory sessions again and deliver the group report.
Students who make use of the Article 2.4 of the Student Evaluation Policy and who request in advance an overall examination of the subject must perform an additional examination, just after the final exam, consisting of 3 or 4 problems on the contents of the laboratory practices and the proposed works during the course. The score obtained at this additional examination will be their final practices-and-works score and will replace any previous qualification that students may have in this section.
