Qualificació

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.


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.

Students following continuous assessment must obtain a minimum mark of 50% in the class component which represents 80% of the final mark and separately a minimum mark of 50% in the final presentation which represents 20% of the final mark. Students are only required to re-sit the part they have failed.

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).
Students sitting the Global Re-sit Exam (Reevaluacion), must obtain a minimum mark of 50% in the exam which represents 80% of the final mark and separately a minimum mark of 50% in the final presentation which represents 20% of the final mark. Students are only required to re-sit the part they have failed.

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).
They must obtain a minimum mark of 50% in the exam which represents 80% of the final mark and separately a minimum mark of 50% in the final presentation which represents 20% of the final mark.
There is no further re-sit for students who fail this evaluation.


Students who are entitled to go directly to 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 this Global Exam will be re-evaluated in the Global Re-sit Exam (Reevaluación).
Students sitting the Global Re-sit Exam (Reevaluacion), must obtain a minimum mark of 50% in the exam which represents 80% of the final mark and separately a minimum mark of 50% in the final presentation which represents 20% of the final mark.

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.

Observacions

It is assumed that students will have a sufficient level of English to meet the requirements of the course.

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.
