Assessment methods (Instruments, criteria and percentages)

Ordinary assessment session

The scoring system will be discussed and agreed with the students in the beginning of the course. Main aspects to discuss: 

 

EXAMS: There might be partial exams and final exams. Partial exams include the content studied up to the day before the exam. These exams include questions about practical and theory.  

 

CLASS ATTENDANCE: It is not mandatory, but it will be frequently registered and it is included in the final scoring.

 

GROUP WORK:  Group of 4 persons max. The group will work on a specific topic, submit a written text about it and lead an oral presentation.

 

CLASS TASKS: Class tasks will be done during the theory and practical lectures. Groups will design and deliver practical lessons.

 

SCORING

Criteria to pass the Module:

  • Exams: Score: 40 to 50%. This will be agreed with students at the beginning of the academic year. The average of the 3 partial exams will be used and a minimum of 5 out of 10 points is required to avoid the final exam.
  • Class attendance and participation in class tasks suggested: Score: 30 to 40%. This will be agreed with students at the beginning of the academic year taking into account the exam´s weight.
  • Group work: Score: 20%

Extraordinary assessment session

For all students, the Extraordinary evaluation will consist of one single exam.

Single final assessment

According to the current regulations, if a student wants to choose the Final Single Exam option, he/she will have to formally apply for this evaluation option during the first 2 weeks from the beginning of the subject, submitting an application to the Director of the Department explaining in detail the reasons why the person cannot attend the subject continuously during the course of the subject. In case the application is approved, the Director will communicate this decision to the teachers of the subject, and the student will have the right to do one single exam at the end of the subject (i.e. official day of the exam published in the Faculty website) which will cover all the topics, theoretical and practical, of the subject.
