5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

Competencies for Assessment System:

  • S1 (attendance and participation): CIS1, CIS4
  • S2 (theory assessment): CIS1, CIS4
  • S3 (exercises and work): CIS1, CIS4
  • S4 (practice assessment): CIS1, CIS4

Results for Assessment System:

  • S1 (attendance and participation): 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9
  • S2 (theory assessment): 1,2,3,4,5,6,10
  • S3 (exercises and work): 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9
  • S4 (practice assessment): 1,2,5,6,7,8

Detailed description:

A global assessment of the subject will be held, covered by article 13 of the Academic System and Regulations of Student Assessment at the University of Jaen, dividing the score in the following sections:

-Theory (up to 4 points): writting test. You have to reach at least 2 points to have a chance to add other scores

- Practices (up to 3 points): practices development at computer lab. You have to reach at least 1.5 points to have a chance to add other scores

- Lectures attendance: up to 0.5 points

- Practices attendance: up to 0.5 points

- Participation on exercises solving and publication on the wiki of this course: up to 2 points. The number of exercises needed to get this maximum score will be decided by the professor during the first eight weeks of the course, depending on the number of students participating on this part of the course evaluation. Furthermore, the student that is able to solve and upload to the wiki this number of exercises, and additionally is able to solve and upload to the wiki an extra number of exercises equivalent at least to the 50% of the number of exercises needed to get the maximum score (2 points), will receive 1 extra point. The extra point reached can be used in two alternative ways: (1) It can be exchanged for 2 points in the written exam and then the student won't need to solve the exam. (2) The student decides to solve the exam and then the extra point will be added to the final score in the course (until a maximum score of 10 points). In this case, it's important to take into account that the condition of getting at least 2 points in the exam keeps active to pass the course.

In order to pass you have to reach at least 2 points at theory, 1.5 at practises and at least 5 points in the sum of the all evaluable sections.

In order to pass the extraordinary call, it is mandatory to pass the practical part during the ordinary call.

In the extraordinary call, only section Theory (written exam) will be evaluated, giving option to obtain up to 4 points. To ensure the option to obtain the maximum possible score in this call (according to the Academic System and Regulations of Student Assessment at the University of Jaen, approved by the Council of Government No. 33, of 21.11.2013), the score obtained in the remaining evaluable sections (attendance, practices and participation) during the last ordinary call will be added to the score obtained in the written exam for this extraordinary call
