Evaluation systems

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.
In the event that a non-attendance reported by the Academic Board of Directors affects an assessment activity, an alternative will be considered to the extent that the activity requires it.

In the case of students with special needs and whose situation has been communicated by the Academic Direction, an appropriate adaptation of the evaluation will be considered in order to guarantee equal opportunities.

The final marks of Continuous Evaluation will be communicated before the end of the teaching period, 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.

Continuous Evaluation:

According to the current regulations of the school, the minimum class attendance required is 80%. 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”.

Avaluació única:
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.

Tutorial meetings can be requested by sending an e-mail directly to the teacher of the subject. Tutorials may be carried out either in person or remotely through an appropriate channel.

Comunicacio i interacció amb l'estudiantat

During the class hour, all necessary instructions will be given to follow up on the subject. If necessary, an e-mail will be sent to the whole class or to the students concerned.


It is advisable to have completed some Hotel Operations subjects - F&B, Front Office - or have previous experience.

Modificació del disseny

Modificació de les activitats:
The design of the subject has been made for teaching in UdG scenario 1-Presential.
In the event that scenarios with limited or non-attendance are declared, the degree of virtual teaching will be increased accordingly, through the platform chosen by the school for this purpose. In this case, priority will be given to classroom attendance as far as is reasonably possible and permitted, and the scheduled class sessions will be respected, which will be the contact times for students/teachers to carry out the same activities.

Modificació de l'avaluació:
In the event that the evaluation activities cannot be carried out presentially, these same activities will be carried out on the same day and at the same time as planned, using non-presential channels. Two weeks before the date, the students concerned will be informed of the channel that will be used to carry out the activity.

Tutoria i comunicació:
Tutoring and communication with students will take place in all scenarios as defined in the Tutoring and Communication section.
