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 the practical theoretical exam the student will solve questions and exercises of the practices carried out. The difficulty of the exercises will be variable, with the basic contents of the subject foundation until reaching higher levels of complexity.
    The calculation of one or more structures will be delivered, along with the descriptive and supporting documentation thereof.
    It will be necessary to achieve a 4 out of 10 in each of these two sections to pass the subject.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The student will take a test in which it is possible to achieve 100% of the contents and comprehensive skills of the continuous assessment.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
In the practical theoretical exam the student will solve questions and exercises of the practices carried out. The difficulty of the exercises will be variable, with the basic contents of the subject foundation until reaching higher levels of complexity.
The calculation of one or more structures will be delivered, along with the descriptive and supporting documentation thereof.
It will be necessary to achieve a 4 out of 10 in each of these two sections to pass the subject.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
In the practical theoretical exam the student will solve questions and exercises of the practices carried out. The difficulty of the exercises will be variable, with the basic contents of the subject foundation until reaching higher levels of complexity.
The calculation of a structure will be delivered, along with descriptive and supporting documentation. The statement of the structure to be calculated will be provided to the student 15 days before the exam and will be delivered at the beginning of the test.
