2. Pre-Requisites

To pass the course, the student is required to have certain conceptual and argumentative skills, and the equivalent of an introductory course in Calculus and Algebra.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The statistics course is the only course where students learn statistical techniques in the degree. The student must learn to make decisions based on data and how to represent them.
This course aims to:
- Describe and represent large amounts of data through the main measures of location and dispersion and be able to use graphs.
- To help students acquire the necessary skills for modeling situations with "Variability" techniques.
- Basing the decision-making process in general situations on the basis of incomplete information.
- To familiarize the future with computer techniques that directly reflect key statistics related to computer systems situations, and to use in the exercise of their profession.
In addition you will learn to use very powerful computer languages such as R. The last one available for free download and allow a multitude of statistical tasks with specific packages.
Relationship to other subjects.
This is a subject of vital importance that students acquire a working method and a way of thinking and dealing with the difficulties of logic and rigorous manner. The course will take an interdisciplinary sense connecting problems and proposed materials and examples with other subjects of the curriculum. The concepts studied are used in almost all subjects of enhanced smart systems as well as in matters relating to the study of large amounts of data.
The student will describe tools for models with uncertainty and make decisions in the presence of this uncertainty.
Relationship between the profession
Statistics is a transverse field in a wide variety of disciplines, from physics, chemistry to social sciences. In recent decades, the quality control has approached statistical virtually all businesses and is used for decision making in almost all business areas.
In computing, it is common use for reporting and is also frequently used in areas such as data mining where there is an increasing number of computer professionals working. A level consultants, any consultant should have basic knowledge of statistics, like any computer analyst must know based inference techniques.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 50.00% 50.00% Compulsory activity that can be retaken (rescheduling) to be carried out within the planned exam dates of the final exam call (ordinary exam).
Theoretical papers assessment 15.00% 15.00% Non-compulsory activity that can be retaken. To be carried out before end of teaching period
Laboratory sessions 25.00% 25.00% Compulsory activity that can be retaken. To be carried out during lab sessions
Assessment of active participation 10.00% 0.00% Non-compulsory activity that can be retaken. To be carried out during the theory/lab sessions for the students of the continuous modality. The students of
non-continuous modality will
be 0%.
Total: 100.00% 90.00%  
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

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.
