5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

DETAILED INFORMATION

At the end of the semester, the student has to choose between two methods of evaluation: CONTINUOUS EVALUATION or FINAL EXAM.

 

CONTINUOUS EVALUATION

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

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, but with the condition of obtaining a mark higher or equal to 4.0 in each of the evaluated parts (S2, S3, S4).

The students can renounce to the Overall Evaluation at any time, but they cannot choose it again. Thus, they will be evaluated only by the FINALEXAM 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 in the 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%.

 

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

In order to pass the subject, the student must have marks higher or equal to5.0 out of 10 at each part of the final exam.

Students who have already fulfill the requirements of aspect S4 (Laboratory or computer practical work) through the CONTINUOUS EVALUATION, by obtaining a mark 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 passing during that academic year.

 

 The CONTINIOUS EVALUATION modality consists of the following activities:

Attendance and Active participation: 10%. The level of attendance will be computed considering practical (reduced groups) and theoretical/problems sessions (lectures with theory groups). The level of active participation will be evaluated via the students' participation and autonomous work in various proposed activities within lectures and lab sessions. The following competences will be evaluated with this method:  CB6, CB7, CB8, CB9, CB10, CG1, CG2, CG3, CG4, CG5, CG6, CG7, CG9, CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4, CT6, CT7. A positive evaluation assessed with this method will mean that the students have achieved the following learning outcomes: 02, 06, 07, 08.

 

Theoretical concepts: 30%. During the semester there will be some tests or activities to assess with a continuous evaluation the theoretical questions developed during lectures. In addition, the questions proposed as autonomous work or through ILIAS (LMS) will be included as part of this evaluation. The following competences will be evaluated with this method: CB9, CB10, CG2, CG3, CG4, CT1, CT2, CE15, CE16. A positive evaluation assessed with this method will mean that the students have achieved the following learning outcomes:  06, 07, 08.

 

Exercises and case studies: 30%. During the semester there will be questions/tests or activities about the problems and practical cases studied in the lectures. In addition, the development and presentation of the material related to activities proposed through the LMS will be also considered as part of the continuous evaluation. The following competences will be evaluated with this method: CB6, CB7, CB8, CB9, CB10, CG1, CG2, CG3, CG4, CG5, CG6, CG7, CG9, CG10, CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4, CT5, CT6, CT7, CE4, CE6, CE7, CE15, CE16 A positive evaluation assessed through this method will mean that the students have achieved the following learning outcomes: 02, 06, 07, 08.

 

Lab/computer practical sessions: 30%. This item takes into account the development of the design practices and the documentation requested. The following competences will be evaluated with this method: CB6, CB7, CB8, CB9, CB10, CG1, CG2, CG3, CG4, CG5, CG6, CG7, CG9, CG10, CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4, CT5, CT6, CT7, CE15, CE16. A positive evaluation assessed with this method will mean that the students have achieved the following learning results:  02, 06, 07, 08.
