2. Pre-Requisites
Since the course corresponds to the second semester, previous knowledge of Construction I is recommended
3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession
Every building is a complex of construction systems, each of which must meet certain requirements and provide the necessary benefits. Each constructive element can be built with different techniques and materials depending on the technological advances and the particular circumstances of each moment and each building typology.

Basic Knowledge for the rest of the subjects of the CONSTRUCTION itinerary is provided. The set of objectives is formulated to ensure that the future graduate consolidates the basic knowledge about Construction, providing an overview of the modern building and allowing to fix the conceptual frame for the specialized knowledge to develop in future subjects.

All training activities will be recoverable, in other words, there must be an alternative evaluation test that allows to reassess the acquisition of the same skills in the ordinary, extraordinary and special call for completion. If exceptionally, the evaluation of any of the training activities cannot be recovered, it must be specified in the description and be expressly authorized by the department.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Oral presentations assessment 10.00% 20.00% Individual or group exposition of the work or part of the work done during the course.
Test 20.00% 0.00% They will be done according to the course calendar. They will be weighted according to the number of tests performed. A score greater than or equal to 3 out of 10 is required in each of them in order to perform the weighted average with other activities
Final test 20.00% 80.00% The weighting will be 30% or 60% depending on the results of the progress tests. It will serve as a recovery for students who have not passed any of the progress tests. A score greater than or equal to 4 out of 10 is required in order to perform the weighted average with other activities. It will be held on the date established in the official exam calendar of the EPC
Practicum and practical activities reports assessment 50.00% 0.00% Elaboration and presentation of the proposed course tasks that may be coordinated with other subjects according to guidelines established at the beginning. Attendance at scheduled group tutoring will be mandatory.
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:
    The final mark of the course will be the weighted media of the qualifications (over 10 points) according to the system and the percentages established in the previous section. A grade equal to or greater than 5 is required to pass the course.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The final mark of the course will be the weighted media of the qualifications (over 10 points) according to the system and the percentages established in the previous section. A grade equal to or greater than 5 is required to pass the course.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
tudents who have been continuously evaluated in the Final exam and have not passed the course will be able to keep the grades and recover the parts that have not reached the minimum grade.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
tudents who have been continuously evaluated in the Final and retake exam and have not passed the course will be able to keep the grades and recover the parts that have not reached the minimum grade.
