Evaluation Regulation


Education is a process that includes several activities to guarantee that the student is really learning and developing different abilities. The evaluation process is one of these activities that should have a specific regulation to avoid misunderstandings and permit the students know a priori the “game rules” before starting it.

This Evaluation Regulation pretends to announce the rules for the evaluation process.

At the beginning of the course, the teacher must inform the students about the Evaluation System that s/he will use in class:

  • How will s/he evaluate: what activities will be taken into account and its percentage on the global grade.
  • The dates of the final exams.
  • How many partial exams they will have, its dates and the percentage on the grade these will have.
  • As for the continuous evaluation tests, if they will be surprise or not, how they will be and the percentage on the continuous evaluation grade these will have.
  • As for the practice controls, how they will be carried out and how they will affect the grade.
  • The date of each kind of specific evaluation activity.
  • The results of each test will be shown on the information system exclusively for each student.
  •  …

 

All this information will be kept in the file of each subject that corresponds with the school’s intranet.

Regarding to the exams, these are supposed to be reviewed by the students after the professor grade them. They may or not take off some themes for the final exam. (This depends on what each teacher has set the first day of class, and leaving evidence of this on the subject’s file in the intranet). For the exams, it’s important to take into account::

During the exam:

  • The exam is realized the day, hour and place published on the web.
  • Written exams include a paragraph that mention the weight of each part on the final grade and the date and place for that exam review.
  • Students must leave over the table an ID with picture. (Identity card, passport, driver license, student card…) The teacher may require the identification of any student at any moment during the exam. If someone forgets the ID, s/he will have maximum 24 hours to take it to one of the teachers that have watched over the exam. If s/he doesn’t do this, the teacher reserves the right to refuse checking that student’s exam. 
  • Mobiles and electronic devices must be turned off and kept on a non visible place. (With the exception of those devices that each teacher determined that must be used on the exam).
  • During the exam, nobody is able to leave the classroom for the first 45 minutes since the beginning.
  • Nobody is able to enter to the classroom after 45 minutes from the beginning of the exam.
  • Answers must be clear. If the professor isn’t able to understand the answer, s/he reserves the right to check or not that answer.
  • During the exam, only the material authorized by the professor can be used.
  • The exam has to be solved individually. Independently of the disciplinary process against the offender, the dishonest behavior during the exam or the attempt to copy one or more of the exercises on the exam of any subject will entail:
     
COPY CERTIFICATE GRADE WHAT IS LOST?
In a checkpoint or semester exam Ordinary certificate grade: 0 Ordinary exam session
On an ordinary session Ordinary certificate grade: 0 Extraordinary session (NP)
On an extraordinary session Extraordinary certificate grade: 0
The next checkpoints or semester exam (NP)

 

 

  • Besides this regulation, it may be one specific for each subject. In this case, that regulation will be announced to all students at the beginning of the course and a written document will be uploaded on the school’s intranet, in the space reserved for each subject.
  • For oral exams, the evaluation will be done according to the established on this regulation.
  • The correcting punctuation must be clear before the exam presentation.
  • If there is a student with a physic or sensory handicap, his or her evaluation must be adapted to his/her special needs.
  • If a student needs a certificate of attendance to the exam, s/he could ask for it in Administration and it will be signed by the teacher.
     

 

After the exam:

  • The exam review will be according to some coherent points established by the subject’s professors.
  • The exam grades will be published in the school’s information system in a prefixed period of time and are also communicated by the professor.
  • Every student that has answered the exam in normal conditions has the right to review it in the specified date and time. The reviewing process supposes the exam’s correction repetition, as to receive explanation of the grade awarded. (In consequence, the student might receive a better or a worst grade.)
  • On the ordinary and extraordinary exam session, the review must be done before the evaluating session. Once the grades have passed by the evaluating session, these will be written in the certificates and will be irremovable.
  • After the exam review, the student may appeal against a grade. This appealing must be done maximum in two weeks from the grade publication. The student has the right to request from the Director, by means of a properly reasoned written document, the review of the grade of the exam. The Director will arbitrate on the procedure he considered adequate to solve the dispute.


Not attending an exam:

  • If a student can’t attend to an exam on the established date because a justified cause, s/he will have to notify the teacher (directly or indirectly) before the day of the exam. It’s important that s/he makes sure to bring as soon as possible, a certificate of attendance explaining clearly the reason of his or her absence.
  • Some of the reasons to postpone an exam are: sickness, death, big family problems or accident.
  • Reasons that can’t postpone an exam: a trip, work, exams of other ambits.


As to the control exams, these don’t have a later review and may or not take off some themes for the final exam. (This depends on what each teacher has set the first day of class, and leaving evidence of this on the subject’s file in the intranet).
