1. CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT
Students will be continuously assessed by Suggested Classroom Activities (SCA), Midterm Exam and Final Exam, thereby receiving a weighted average of the continuous assessment: 25% for Suggested Classrom Activities, 15% for Midterm Exam and 60% for Final Exam.
1.1. Suggested Classroom Activities (SCA):
-This evaluation activity represents a 25% of the final mark of the course.
-They are in-class activities carried out through the Moodle page of the course and must be submitted during the class.
-Students must be present in class to do the SCAs. Not being in class will result in a zero for the corresponding SCA.
-There will be a total of 10 SCAs during the course that will be held during regular class hours (in-class activities).
-The activities consist of a list of questions and problems related to the lecture contents of the previous week.
-Out of the 10 SCAs, the 8 best scores for each student will be selected. The missed activities will count as a zero. Non-excused absences will also be counted as a zero.
-The overall score of the SCA will be the average of the submitted activities (mean of the 8 best scores).
-Students must attend and do a minimun of 80% of the SCAs in order to calculate the weighted average of the continuous assessment. If attendance is less than 80%, the continuous assessment will not be calculated and the student must go directly to the Basic Competence Exam (Final Exam is not be permitted in this case).
-The overall score of the activities held during the course will be uploaded before the Final Exam.
1.2. Midterm Exam
-This evaluation activity represents a 15% of the final mark of the course.
-The contents covered in the Midterm Exam will be tested again in the Final Exam.
-The Midterm Exam is carried out through the Moodle page of the course and consists of two parts:
->Part 1 - Multiple choice: 20 multiple choice questions about concepts and short solving problems (similar to those of the Final Exam). Each question will have five possible answers, only one of which is correct. A penalty of 20% of the value of the question will be deducted for each wrong answer. There is no deduction for unanswered questions.
->Part 2 - Problem solving: Problems similar to those done in the in-class activities (at roughly the same level). There is no penalty for wrong answers in this part of the exam.
-The Midterm Exam will last for 90 minutes.
-The use of programmable calculators and/or formula sheets are not permitted.
-Students must ensure they have the appropriate equipment and devices to carry out the Midterm Exam.
1.3. Final Exam:
-This evaluation activity represents a 60% of the final mark of the course.
-A minimum mark of 4 is required to calculate the weighted average (which includes SCAs, Midterm Exam and Final Exam). This average will be the overall score of the subject.
-If the student scores less than 4 in the Final Exam, he/she will not be able to count the continuous assessment (SCAs, Midterm Exam and Final Exam) as part of the final mark. In this case, the student will have to sit the Basic Competences Exam (BCE).
-The Final Exam includes 40 multiple choice questions about concepts and short solving problems.
-Each question will have five possible answers, only one of which is correct.
-A penalty of 20% of the value of the question will be deducted for each wrong answer.
-There is no deduction for unanswered questions.
-The Final Exam will last for 90 minutes.
-The use of programmable calculators and/or formula sheets are not permitted.
2. NON-CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT
-Students can skip all continuous assessment activities (SCAs and Midterm Exam), and only sit the Final Exam. In this case, they will not be continuously assessed, therefore, 100% of their mark will correspond to the Final Exam.
-A minimum mark of 5 in the Final Exam is required to pass the subject.
-If the overall score of the subject is less than 5, the student will fail the subject.
3. BASIC COMPETENCES EXAM (BCE):
-Students who fail the subject will have the opportunity to sit the Basic Competences Exam (BCE) regardless of the evaluation method chosen.
-It will have a similar format to that of the Final Exam and a minimum score of 5 is required to pass it.
-In this case, the scores of the continuous assessment will be cancelled.
-As it is a Basic Competences Exam, students who pass it will have a 5 as the final mark of the subject.
-If a student does not reach the minimum mark of 5 in the BCE, the final mark of the subject will equal that of the BCE.
Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat»:
Students not attending to either the continuous assessment and/or the final assessment will be marked with a 'not seated' for the corresponding evaluation.
The evaluation system in EUSES - UdG is based, in general, on continuous assessment. If the student wishes to take part in the unique pathway (Non-Continuous Assessment), he/she will need to request it in writing to the professors of the subject and the degree coordinator during the first two weeks of the semester.
If the student opts for the Non-Continuous Assessment:
-The student will not do any of the Continuous Assessment activities scheduled during the course (neither Suggested Classroom Activities Studies nor Midterm Exam).
-The student will be assessed through a single exam, that is the Final Exam, which corresponds to 100 % of the overall mark of the subject.
-A minimum mark of 5 is required to pass the subject. If the mark is less than 5, the student fails the subject and he/she will have the opportunity of taking the Basic Competences Exam (BCE) to pass the subject.
Requisits mínims per aprovar:
-Suggested Classroom Activities (SCA) attendance must be more than or equal to 80%.
-A minimum mark of 4 in the Final Exam is required in order to calculate the weighted average to pass the subject.
-A minimum mark of 5 in the Continuous Assessment (SCAs, Midterm Exam and Final Exam) is required to pass the subject.
-A minimum score of 5 in the Final Exam is required in order to pass the subject.
If the student fails the subject, he/she will have the opportunity to take the Basic Competences Exam (BCE) to pass the subject regardless of the evaluation assessment chosen. A minimum mark of 5 in the BCE is required to pass the subject.
