Evaluation

- The subject lasts one semester and consists of two very different parts: the part of knowledge and the practice of the subject. The evaluation of knowledge and practice will be independent. In order to pass the subject, knowledge and practice must be approved independently. The final grade of the subject is represented in the following formula:

Note_Final = 60% · Knowledge + 40% · Practice

- The knowledge note will be evaluated based on the following related notes: the exams note (Note_Ex) and the continuous follow-up note or continuous evaluation (Note_Ac), according to the following calculation:

Knowledge = 70% · Note_Ex + 30% · Note_Ac

- This calculation will only be applied if the knowledge note exceeds the exam mark (Note_Ex).
- On the other hand, the exam grades (Note_Ex) will be calculated by weighting with the semester exam notes (Ex_Midterm) and the final exam mark (Ex_Final), according to the following calculation:

Note_Ex = 50% · Ex_Final + 50% · Ex_Midterm

- If the grade obtained in the Midterm Exam is greater than or equal to 5 (subjects 1 and 2), the subject corresponding to this exam will be released to the student for the final exam of the semester (not for the call extraordinary).
- In addition to the final exam in the ordinary session, there will be the possibility of taking a final examination of recovery for those students who have not previously approved it (extraordinary call).
- With regard to the evaluation of the practice in a later section, this is detailed along with all the regulations of practices.

Evaluation Criteria

Objective 2: Abilities to put knowledge in the practice: it is evaluated using the group work tasks.
Objective 3: Writing abilities in the own language: it is evaluated using the group work tasks.
Objective 4: Group work abilitites: it is evaluated using the group work tasks.
