Qualificació

Students may opt to follow a continuous assessement system or a final assessment system. If students opt for the one-off/final assessment, they should contact their teacher to justify their choice. If the final mark of the continuous assessment is below 5, students will take the final exam in the official calendar date of “convocatòria extraordinària” established by the university.

- Continuous Assessment:

a) The continuous assessment will be based on different tests during the course. Those are: skills tests (reading and listening), writing tests, oral presentations, a Cambridge speaking test, as well as two midterm exams (grammar and vocabulary) and and two exams on the official university dates in January and May/June (convocatòria ordinària). The final mark will be calculated following the percentages below:
Midterm 1 Exam: 12%
Term 1 Exam: 14%
Midterm 2 Exam: 12%
Term 2 Exam: 14%
Skills Tests: 10%
Writing Tests: 10%
Oral Presentation: 14%
Cambridge Speaking Test: 14%

b) The dates of tests and assessment activities will be announced in due time in class and will also be published in Moodle. Students will NOT get a chance to do the exam on a different date unless there is a medical or work justification, and will only be able to do so in the alternative times and dates proposed by the professor.

c) Students will NOT be able to make up for continuous assessment tests once classes are over.

d) For students to be assessed they need to take part in both the written part and oral part of the course.

Please bear in mind that:

a) In order to follow the continuous assessment, students need to attend a minimum of 80% of the sessions. In order to do that, students will sign an attendance sheet. If a student cannot attend class for work or personal reasons, they will have to follow the final assessment, but will be welcome to attend class as well.

b) Regarding speaking skills, the following items will be taken into account: use of vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and intonation, interaction, as well as cohesion and coherence.

c) In order to pass the continuous assessment, the average of the oral part of the course needs to be equal to or over 4.

d) The marking criteria for written work will take into account: the use of vocabulary, grammar, as well as discourse markers and cohesion and coherence.

e) In order to follow the continuous assessment, the average of midterm tests and Test 1 and 2 need to be equal to or over 5.


- Final (one-off) assessment:

The final exam (convocatòria ordinària/extraordinària) consists of four parts: Speaking (40%), Listening (20%), Reading (20%), and Written Exam (20%).

A minimum mark of 4 is required in the written and oral part of the final exams.

In order to pass the course, the average of all parts of the assessment needs to be at least 5.

Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat»:
Segons normativa de la Universitat de Girona: La qualificació de "No Presentat" exhaureix convocatòria de qualificació als efectes previstos en la normativa de Permanència i progressió en estudis de grau de la Universitat de Girona.
