The grading criteria is based on:

- the realization of 6 practical works developed throughout the course.
- two exams by means of written test.
- the participation in the classes and the realization of informal exercises.

The final grade of the course is formed by two mid-term exams, the exams will have to have a median grade higher or equal to 4 in order to include the practical work.

Work will be rejected after the agreed upon due date and time.
The papers not submitted will be graded 0, since the final activity has to be averaged with the remaining exercises.

The overall grade for the course is computed on a total grade of 10 points.
The informal exercises influence the evaluation of the attitudinal section. These exercises are related to the attitudes of attention and evolution of learning in the teaching sessions.

The exam questions refer to relevant and basic issues related to the learning of the subject. They are concrete questions, which require theoretical knowledge of the subject. The degree of precision and synthesis of the answer is valued.

Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat»:
Students who do not have a grade for the presentation of the work will not be able to take the final exam and therefore will be graded as Not Presented.

The student will be considered as Not Present of the course if the sum of the total percentages of the tests or exams to which he/she has presented is less than 25%.

The absence to the teaching sessions of more than 60% will be recorded as a Not Presented.

Avaluació única:
Due to the complexity of the deliverables, the face-to-face activity is a requirement, which makes it counterproductive to contemplate the single evaluation option.
In the teaching activity, simulation practices are carried out in order to know the specific indicators for the development of the exercises.

Requisits mínims per aprovar:
A minimum grade of 5.0 is required to pass the course.


Students who cannot achieve the minimum competency levels in the subject "theory and analysis of the image", who failed the learning results, will not be able to enroll in the subject "Multimedia Script" of the third year.

Those students who have failed the course, and who have an academic record with a median grade of 7, will be able to take the "Multimedia Script" course upon request.

General Observations
The study of the communicative dimensions of visual and audiovisual discourses is proposed. The module proposes the application in the study and analysis of images as a vehicle of meaning.
Consequently, learning to read images contributes to give life to the interpretation and vision of the cultural codes that we acquire.

In order to favor the connection between the theoretical contents, complementary reinforcement material, articles in pdf, images and videographic documents will be provided.
In the theoretical sessions of the course, the expository lesson will be used to review the theoretical contents and to give indications about their importance and the corresponding practical application.
The practical application of certain contents will be reinforced by means of exercises or works that will be proposed for each subject and that will be approached individually or by group according to the case.
Given the characteristics of the students, we consider important to involve them in the development of different communicative actions through public presentations. This will enrich the development of the subject, will allow to clarify or comment on different aspects of the content and will also serve, for the teachers, as an evaluation of the strategy that is being followed.
