Competències

  • Resoldre problemes
  • Resoldre problemes complexos de forma efectiva en el camp de la Fisioteràpia.
  • Aplicar pensament crític, lògic i creatiu, mostrant dots d'innovació.
  • Conèixer i comprendre els mètodes, procediments i actuacions fisioterapèutiques, encaminats tant a la terapèutica pròpiament dita a aplicar a la clínica per a la reeducació o recuperació funcional, com a la realització d'activitats dirigides a la promoció i manteniment de la salut

Qualificació

1. CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT:

Students will be continuously assessed by Seminars, Evidence-Based Case Studies, Midterm Exam and Final Exam, thereby receiving a weighted average of the continuous assessment: 20% for Seminars, 20% for Evidence-Based Case Studies, 10% for Midterm Exam and 50% for Final Exam.

1.1. Seminars:

-Students will be divided in groups and requested to complete a series of questions and exercises related to previous lectures of the course.
-There will be 3 seminars during the course (the timetable will be uploaded at the start of the course).
-The activities will be uploaded to the Moodle page and the professor will give the deadline to submit the corresponding activity.
-The subject of the seminars will be related to the previous lectures.
-The professor will support any group of students who ask for it.
-Each group member will receive the same mark.
-Non-delivered activities will result in zero.
-The activities will average altogether to obtain the overall score of the Seminars.
-If the student does not attend the Seminars, it will result in a zero for the missed activities.
-Students can make an appointment via email to ask questions related to the Seminar activities.
-The overall score of the Seminars (which represents the 20% of the final mark) will be uploaded before the Final Exam.


1.2. Evidence-Based Case Studies:

-Students will be divided in groups and requested to prepare oral presentations of case studies concerning specific case studies and the application of different physical agents.
-Students can make an appointment via email to request mentoring for the case studies.
-Each group member will receive the same mark.
-The student will receive a zero in case of not attending their own group presentation or not contributing to the preparation of the presentation (as informed by the majority of group members).
-The overall score of the Evidence-Based Case Studies (which represents the 20% of the final mark) will be uploaded before the Final Exam.


1.3. Midterm Exam (Moodle quiz):

-It represents 10% of the final mark.
-The midterm exam will be a Moodle quiz with 20 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 (no deduction for unanswered questions).
-In this exam the use of a programmable calculator and/or formula sheet is not permitted.
-Attendance will be checked via Zoom.


1.4. Final Exam:

-It represents 50% of the final mark.
-A minimum score of 4.5 is required to obtain the weighted average score detailed above. This average will be the overall score of the subject.
-Students who score less than 4.5 in the Final Exam will not be able to count the continuous assessment (Seminars, Evidence-Based Case Studies and Midterm Exam) as part of their final mark. In this case their final mark will equal the mark of the Final Exam.
-The Final Exam has 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 incorrect answer (no deduction for unanswered questions).
-In this exam the use of a programmable calculator and/or formula sheet is not permitted.
-The exam will last approximately 90 minutes.


If the overall score of the subject is less than 5, the student will fail the subject.


2. NON-CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT

-Students can skip all seminars, case study presentations 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.

Avaluació única:
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 Seminars, Evidence-Based Case Studies nor Midterm Exam).
-The student will be assessed through a single exam, that is the Final Exam, which corresponds to the 100 % of the overall mark of the subject.
-A minimum score of 5 is required to pass the subject. If the score 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:
For students undergoing Continuous Assessment, a minimum score of 4.5 in the Final Exam is required in order to calculate the weighted average to pass the subject.
For students opting for the Non-Continuous Assessment, a minimum score of 5 in the Final Exam is required in order to pass the subject.
For all students sitting the BCE, a minimum score of 5 is required to pass the subject.
