2. Pre-Requisites

This subject is based on the competences and knowledge acquired in the subjects:

  • Fundamentos de Programación I.
  • Fundamentos de Gestión Empresarial.
3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This subject is integrated into the subject of "Software Engineering, Information Systems and Intelligent Systems" of the curriculum and provides a transversal and integrating overview of the IT context, relating the business and business aspects with the specific aims of Information Technology (IT). To do this, the basic concepts of  IT (engineering, abstraction, model, system, project, process, information) are introduced, next the concept of ¿¿computer system (hardware + software + data) is presented. And finally, the more global concept of Information System (IS) as a special type of socio-technical system (with technological and human, social and organizational elements) whose objective is to satisfy the information needs of an organization, is introduced.
This subject provides a horizontal vision of the computer activity. As a result, the student will be able to better understand the role that each subject plays in Computer Science.
The subject present some of the key concepts that will be addressed in the rest of the career.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Test 50.00% 50.00% Test. Compulsory activity that can be retaken (rescheduling). To be carried out at the date scheduled for the final examination of the ordinary and extraordinary convocation.
Practicum and practical activities reports assessment 20.00% 20.00% Deliverables from the scheduled practial activities. Compulsory activity that can be retaken. To be carried out during lab sessions.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 15.00% 15.00% Deliverables of problems and theory cases (topics t1-t7). Non-compulsary activity that can be retaken. To be done before the end of the teaching period.

Oral presentations assessment 7.50% 7.50% Oral presentation of the theoretical paper. Non-compulsory activity that can be retaken. To be carried out before the end of the teaching period
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 compulsory activities, a minimum mark of 40% is required in order to pass that activity and have the possibility to therefore pass the entire subject. The evaluation of the activities will be global and therefore must be quantified by means of a single mark. In the case of the activities that may be retaken (i.e., rescheduling), an alternative activity or test will be offered in the resit/retake exam call (convocatoria extraordinaria).
    The final exam will be common for all the theory/laboratory groups of the subject and will be evaluated by the lecturers of the subject in a serial way, i.e., each part of the final exam will be evaluated by the same lecturer for all the students.
    A student is considered to pass the subject if she/he obtains a minimum of 50 points out of 100, taking into account the points obtained in all the evaluable activities, and also has passed all the compulsory activities.
    For students who do not pass the subject in the final exam call (convocatoria ordinaria), the marks of activities already passed will be conserved for the resit/retake examcall (convocatoria extraordinaria). If an activity is not recoverable, its assessment will be preserved for the resit/retake exam call (convocatoria extraordinaria) even if it has not been passed. In the case of the passed recoverable activities, the student will have the opportunity to receive an alternative evaluation of those activities in the resit/retake exam call and, in that case, the final grade of the activity will correspond to the latter grade obtained.
    The mark of the passed activities in any call, except for the final exam, will be conserved for the subsequent academic year at the request of the student, provided that mark is equal or greater than 50% and that the activities and evaluation criteria of the subject remain unchanged prior to the beginning of that academic year.
    The failure of a student to attend the final exam will automatically result in her/him receiving a "Failure to attend¿ (no presentado). If the student has not passed any compulsory evaluation activity, the maximum final grade will be 40%.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Students may apply at the beginning of the semester for the non-continuous assessment mode. In the same way, the student may change to the non-continuous evaluation mode as long as she/he has not participated during the teaching period in evaluable activities that together account for at least 50% of the total mark of the subject. If a student has reached this 50% of the total obtainable mark or the teaching period is over, she/he will be considered in continuous assessment without the possibility of changing to non-continuous evaluation mode.
    Students who take the non-continuous evaluation mode will be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject, an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences), through the assessment systems indicated in the column "Non-continuous evaluation".
    In the "non-continuous evaluation" mode, it is not compulsory to keep the mark obtained by the student in the activities or tests (progress test or partial test) taken in the continuous assessment mode.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Evaluation tests will be conducted for all recoverable activities.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same characteristics as the resit/retake exam call.
