The ordinary evaluation system is Continuous Evaluation for all students. Global Evaluation (no class attendance required) is limited to students from previous courses and, in some very special cases, students who are explicitly authorized by the Academic Board of Directors to undergo global evaluation in this subject.
For Continuous Evaluation, a minimum of 80 % class attendance is required, regardless of any justification for non-attendance. Only those absences which are reported by the Academic Board of Directors will not be counted as non-attendance. Students who do not meet the attendance requirement will lose the benefits and partial grades of Continuous Evaluation and must sit a global evaluation, without any further re-sit.
The final marks of Continuous Evaluation will be communicated before the end of the teaching period (January 17, 2020), and in any case before the Global Evaluation period begins.
Both in Continuous Evaluation and in Global Evaluation there is an option of re-evaluation (re-sit) if the passing grade is not reached; the conditions are detailed below.
According to the current regulations of the school, the minimum class attendance required is 80%; this means that a maximum of 3 sessions (9 hours) may be missed. If the required attendance is not reached, the student loses the right to continuous assessment and must do the re-evaluation exam.
The continuous evaluation will also assess attitude, participation and group work dynamics. The student is expected to be proactive and relevant to the subject and case studies.
Global Evaluation and re-sit assessment:
Students will be evaluated based on the following tasks and assessments to pass the subject:
Individual written exam based on the relevant syllabus.
Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat»:
A student who fails to sit at least one of the assessments mentioned above (continuous / global / re-sit) will be qualified “No presentat”.
