Avaluació i qualificació

Activitats d'avaluació:

Descripció de l'activitat Avaluació de l'activitat % Recuperable
Midterm exam 25 multiple choice questions 20 No
Oral communication
Oral presentation of the most relevant aspects of scientific articles related to a topic of the Subject. 20 No
Final exam 50 multiple choice questions + 2 short questions 60

Qualificació

EVALUATION: 40% CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT + 60% FINAL EXAM

CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT(40%):

- MIDTERM EXAM (20%): 25 multiple choice questions covering part of the course. Each question has only one true answer. Each correct answer scores +1 point. Each wrong answer will be penalized (questions with 4 possible choices, -0.25 points; questions with 2 choices, -0.5 points).

- ORAL COMMUNICATION of a scientific paper in working groups (20%). Assessment: unacceptable (0/10 points), deficient (2.5/10), acceptable (5/10), good (7.5/10) or very good (10/10).
Students who already passed the oral communication (minimum grade of 5), the scored mark will be kept for the current course.

FINAL EXAM (60%): 50 multiple choice questions (8/10 points) + 2 short questions (2/10 points) covering the entirety of the course. Each question has only one true answer. Each correct answer scores +1 point. Wrong answers will be penalized (questions with 4 choices: -0.25 points; questions with 2 choices: -0.5 points).

A minimum of 4/10 points in the final exam is required in order to calculate the mean qualification of the whole subject.

A minimum grade of 5/10 is required to pass the subject.

Those students who fail the course (less than 5/10) will be eligible to take the BASIC COMPETENCES EXAM. In this exam, if passed (minimum of 5/10), the maximum grade given will be 5 and will be the course qualification.

Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat»:
Students are required to participate in the assessment activities during the course (midterm exam, oral communication, final exam) or the unique assessment. On the contrary, will be considered as non-attendance.

Avaluació única:
The evaluation system in EUSES - UdG is based, in general, in the continuous assessment. If the student wishes to take part in the unique pathway, he / she will need to request it in writing to the lecturer of the subject and the degree coordinator during the first two weeks of the Semester.

Requisits mínims per aprovar:
A minimum grade of 5.0 will be required to pass the subject.

Tutoria

The tutorials will be carried out in person in enabled classrooms, and also virtually.

Comunicacio i interacció amb l'estudiantat

Communication and interaction with the students will be done in person and virtually throughout the forum of Moodle, video-conferencing means and email.

Observacions

Objectives:

1. To achieve basic knowledge of the cell as a fundamental unit that forms living beings.

2. To describe the structure of the eukaryotic animal cell: organelles structure and main functions.

3. To define the composition and the main extracellular matrix functions as a basic part of tissues.

4. To describe cell to cell communication; types of signals and receptors.
