The evaluation is divides in two sections. On one hand, the theoretical contents and that related to the works performed during the tutorships and seminars, will have a value of 70% of the final mark. On the other hand, the work done weekly during the practices will be corrected periodically. That will rate a 30% of the final mark.
To pass the subject the students will need a mark of, at least, 5 (up to 10 points) in each of the above-mentioned blocks.
The instrument for the evaluation will be a final exam; a written test with the two parts of evaluation.
Students will be able to add extra punctuation to their final mark answering correctly exercises raised during the theoretical classes. These extra scores will only be applied in the continuous assessment period (February) and provided that the student manages to pass the final exam.
The characteristics of the test are:
The contents of the examination are developed during the course both in theoretical sessions and practices (described in the Academic Content section). The following seminars at the first and second courses will be of particular interest and relevance to the assessment of the subject:
- The use of the video as a tool of quantitative measurement of human movement.
- Conceptual bases of the measurement in Sport Sciences.
- Mathematical Bases I:review.
- Mathematical Bases II: review of basic concepts.
- Mathematical Bases III: specific application to the Sport Sciences.
- Tools for online collaborative work: Google Drive and Office Online.
- Mathematical operations and graphical representation with Excel.
- The test is a single test that evaluates all the contents of the subject, have been addressed in theoretical sessions, practices or seminars. The exam consists of 40 multiple choice questions (with 4 options and one right) with a value of 70% and three open questions with a value of 30%.
The test will last a maximum of 1 hour 30 min.
- In multiple choice questions, the student have to mark the correct answer. Every wrong answer subtracts 1/3 of one correct. The unanswered questions do not punish.
- In the open questions the correctness of the response 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.
- To solve some questions may require the use of calculator, protractor, square and bevel, so the students must attend the examination with such material.
- Students should carry an official identification (university card, identity card, driving license or passport).
- During the exam, electronic devices with cameras or systems for transmitting or receiving information (mobile phones, intelligent watches, etc.) shall not be permitted within reach. In addition, they must remain disconnected.
- All students who need to certify their attendance to the exam, must fill in the appropriate form (downloadable from the web), and present it to the head professor at the end of the test.
