8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 60.00% 60.00% It shall consist of two parts:
- 1st part, topics 1.2 and 3 (30% assessment on the total of the subject).
- 2nd part, topics 4 and 5 (30% assessment on the total of the subject).
In order to be able to weigh with the rest of the grades of the subject it will be necessary to reach a
minimum score of 4 points out of 10.
It could be replaced by several partial tests, in that case, the minimun score will be 3 out of 10 in eeach part.
Other methods of assessment 40.00% 40.00% implementation of the PBL. Problems and methodology will be exposed in class. The approach
will be delivered at the end of the class and reports of its resolution will be prepared in a autonomous manner.
In order to be able to weigh with the rest of the grades of the subject it will be necessary to reach a
minimum score of 4 points out of 10
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 pass is compulsory to obtain 5 points out of 10, as the weighted average of the final test grade (or partial tests) and that obtained by other evaluation systems.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The pass is compulsory to obtain 5 points out of 10, as the weighted average of the final test grade (or partial tests) and that obtained by other evaluation systems.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The pass is compulsory to obtain 5 points out of 10, as the weighted average of the final test grade (or partial tests) and that obtained by other evaluation systems.The grades obtained in each part of the evaluation for the final exam will be maintained during the retake exam.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The pass the subject is compulsory to obtain 5 points out of 10 in a single practical and theorical test.
