4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

A1.- Lectures in complete group of students

The methodology to be followed in the lectures will be composed of theory, problems and general examples in the classroom designated for the subject by the center.

A2.- Lectures in groups of practices

The work in these classes will be based on practical activities in the laboratory. The student's work will focus on the development of projects or learning tasks designated by the teacher, culminating in the achievement of the objectives set for the practice.

A3.- Collective tutorials

The collective tutorials will be used in the resolution of doubts and supervision of the works and exercises as well as attendance and participation in different seminars, talks, conferences, workshops and / or conferences, designated by the teacher.

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY (MANDATORY SUBJECTS): OVERALL EVALUATION

This assessment method is organised according to the activities described in the previous table.

The evaluation process consists of:

- The evaluation of the tasks defined in the Teaching Guide during the Teaching period.

- A final Written Exam during the Examination period. The assessment aspects evaluated in both parts and their contribution to the final mark are summarized in the following table:

 Marks obtained during the Teaching period (as a record of the continuous evaluation process) will be kept until the end of the academic year.

The students have to make a written exam that assesses the theoretical and operating aspects of the subject (S2 and S3) at the end of the semester (at the date established in the examination period).This final evaluation is made to assess the extent to which the studentshaveacquired all the competences and learning outcomes established for those aspects. The weight of this exam is the 50% of each of the evaluated aspects(S2 and S3).

Any books, notes, documentation, or equipment allowed for this Final Exam have to be approved by the lecturer

Final assessment

The students will pass the subject through this evaluation method by getting a mark higher or equal than 5.0 out of 10 in the overall result (continuous evaluation and written exam), but with the condition of obtaining a mark higher or equal to 4.0 in the Written Exam and in S4. The students can renounce to the Overall Evaluation at any time, but they cannot choose it again. Thus, theywill be evaluated only by the FINAL EXAM method.

FINAL EXAM EVALUATION

This kind of evaluation is based in only one written exam that evaluates all the aspects of the subject, by assessing the students acquisition of all the competences and learning outcomes established inthe subject. This exam will take place during the examination period on a date established by the centre.

The final exam is weighted in the following way: - Attendance and participation (S1), Theoretical concepts (S2) and Exercises, problems and study cases (S3): 70%. - Laboratory and computer practical work (S4): 30%.

In order to pass the subject, the student must have marks higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 at each part of the final exam.

The students who have already fulfil the requirements of aspect S4 (Laboratory or computer practical work) through the OVERALL EVALUATION, by obtaining amark higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 do not have to make this part in the FINAL EXAM evaluation. Those aspects successfully completed with a mark higher or equal to 5.0 will be considered passingduring t hat academic year.

CB2R competence and CTI4R and CTI6R learning results will be evaluated by means of assessment systems S2, S3 and S4.
