8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 70.00% 60.00% Written exam 1 (Units 1 through 5/Tema 1 through Tema 5): WE1;
Written exam 2 (Units 6 and 7/Tema 6 and Tema 7): WE2;
Written exam 3 (Units 8 and 9/Tema 8 and Tema 9): WE3;
Each WE includes theory (WE1T, WE2T, WE3T) and practice (WE1P, WE2P, WE3P) within 30% and 70% which have to be passed separately.
They can be retaken
For the non-continuos evaluation, just a final exam (FE) including theory (FET) and practice (FEP)
Assessment of active participation 5.00% 0.00% Problem or case solving in class hours: (CH) They cannot be retaken
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 5.00% 0.00% Problem or case solving outside of class hours: (OCH) They cannot be retaken
Assessment of activities done in the computer labs 5.00% 0.00% Problem or case solving outside of class hours: (CS) They can be retaken

Oral presentations assessment 0.00% 30.00% Oral presentation of an original work based on a scientific paper/topic related with the subject (OP) It cannot be retaken. Just one submission per academic year
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 subject, the following requirements must be satisfied: (at any time: progress tests, final exam o retake exam dates)
    a) WE1T, WE2T, WE3T>=2;
    b) WE1P, WE2P, WE3P>=2;
    c) WE1, WE2, WE3>=4;
    d) GWR, GWQ>=4;
    e) Global mark: (0.7*(WE1+WE2+WE3)/3+0.05*(GWR+GWQ+CH+OCH+CS+T))>=5;

    For notation, see the Grading System table (above).

    Part of each written exam can be replaced by a problem/case to be solved outside of class hours individually (just applicable for progress tests).

    An extra point can be awarded for each written exam. Format is decided throughout the semester.

    A compulsory case/problem is to be solved in small groups and a report must be uploaded. After that, an oral group exam is held based on the report where the students are graded individually. Groups of only one member are not allowed.

    Any plagiarism will be sanctioned with a 0 in the corresponding global activity. Global activities are described in the Grading System table.

    Any details on content, extension and requirements of written exercises will be indicated on virtual campus at the beginning of the semester.

    All minimum marks on this guide refer to (a maximum of) 10 points.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Unless stated otherwise, continuous evaluation criteria will be applied to all students.
    Anyone choosing non-continuous assessment must notify it to the lecturer within the class period of the subject. The option is only available if the student¿s participation in evaluation activities (from the continuous assessment) has not reached 50% of the total evaluation for the subject.
    For the retake exam, the assessment type used for the final exam will remain valid.

    All activities are individual

    Any plagiarism will be sanctioned with a 0 in the corresponding global activity. Global activities are described in the Grading System table.

    In order to pass the subject, the following requirements must be satisfied:
    a) FET, FEP>=2;
    b) GWR, GWQ>=4;
    c) Global mark: (0,6*FE+0,3*OP+0,05*(GWR+GWQ))>=5;

    The same criteria will be applied to the retake exam.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
In order to pass the subject the same criteria as in the final exam apply.

No possibility of replacing part of this exam by a problem/case to be solved outside of class hours individually.

No new extra points for this exam.

All activities to be retaken are indicated in the Grading System table.

Any plagiarism will be sanctioned with a 0 in the corresponding global activity. Global activities are described in the Grading System table.

For the retake exam, the assessment type used for the final exam will remain valid.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same criteria as the non-continuous evaluation
