8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Practicum and practical activities reports assessment 20.00% 20.00%
Laboratory sessions 10.00% 10.00%
Final test 50.00% 50.00%
Projects 20.00% 20.00%
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    In order to pass, the student must reach a weighted mean of 5 or more among the evaluations of all the tests. The student could use the final test to pass the parts of the course that can be recovered.
    In the case that the student did not present the report of the practical activities or did not attend all these activities, the student will have to carry out the final test of this part.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    - The student will have to carry out three final tests of theoretical/practical nature: optimization, process control and production automation.
    - Moreover, he must carry out the laboratory activities and practical works (of the blocks of process control and production automation) and deliver the reports of these activities in the 4 days following to the exam date.
    - In order to pass, the student must reach a weighted mean of 5 or more among the evaluations of all the tests and activities.
    - The above applies to the first and second resits as well to the special finalization exam.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The student will have the opportunity to repeat all the tests that he did not pass through the course at the final exams. In the resit, the student will be waived of taking exams of the parts that he had previously passed.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
It is a test of all the subject. However, this examen will be organized in blocks that could be adapted to the circumstances of each student. This exam allows the student to recover the previously failed blocks without having to repeat the tests of blocks that had been previously passed.
