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 (May 15, 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.
The system of Continuous assessment for this course is only possible for students with a minimum of 80% attendance before mid-course and the end of course. This means that a maximum of 3 sessions (7.5 hours) may be missed in each of the two periods, with an overall maximum of 5 sessions (12.5 hours).
Students who fail the Continuous assessment will be re-evaluated in the Global Re-sit Exam (Reevaluación), which covers all the work studied from October to May (80% written exam, 20% final presentation)
Continuous Assessment students who do not have 80% attendance will be evaluated in the Global Re-sit Exam (Reevaluación), which includes all the work covered from October to May. (80% written exam, 20% final presentation).
Students who are entitled to choose the Global Evaluation are exempt from class and must sit the Global Exam in May. This exam includes all the work covered from October to May. (No evaluation mark for class participation is included.) The Global Exam consists of a written exam 80% and final presentation 20%.
The students who fail the Global Exam will be re-evaluated in the Global Re-sit Exam (Reevaluación). They are only required to re-sit the part they have failed.
NOTE: All students must obtain a minimum of 50% in the class component (continuous assessment)/written exam and the final presentation separately to pass the course. Partial grades will not be kept for the following year.
Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat»:
A student who fails to sit at least one of the evaluations mentioned above (continuous assessment activities and/or global exams) will be qualified “No presentado”.
