8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 0.00% 80.00%
Assessment of active participation 20.00% 20.00%
Test 70.00% 0.00% There will be 2 progress tests. The first progress test (PP1) will comprise items 1-5 and the second (PP2) will comprise items 6-9, as well as the practical contents of item 5. Each progress test will have a value of 40 out of 100 points. These progress tests are not compulsory but can be retaken in a final test covering the whole of the subject corresponding to the ordinary examination, or if the latter is not passed, in the extraordinary examination.
Test 10.00% 0.00% Students who reach 50 points after adding the points from PP1 + points from PP2 + points from participation and practical training, will be considered successful in the regular call for this subject. Those who do not, will have a final exam (ordinary exam) of the whole subject with a value of 80 points out of 100. The calculation of the score will be done in the following way: ordinary exam mark on ten x 80/100 + participation and practical points. With regard to the latter, given that the practical activities are compulsory and cannot be recovered, the existence of an absence without adequate justification will mean that the student will not be able to pass the course. Students who do not pass this score can opt for another final exam (extraordinary exam) whose characteristics and assessment are identical to those of the ordinary exam.
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:
    A system of continuous assessment will be followed so that a cumulative score of 50 out of 100 will be awarded. After the end of the course, the score will be calculated as follows: points PP1 + points PP2 + points participation and practical activities. The students who reach 50 points in this calculation will be considered to have passed in the ordinary call of this course. Those who do not, will have a final exam (ordinary exam) of the whole subject with a value of 80 points out of 100. The calculation of the score will be done in the following way: ordinary exam mark on ten x 80/100 + participation and practical activities points. Regardless of the scores obtained, it is important to bear in mind that in order to pass this course it is essential to have attended and, if necessary, completed the practical activities (compulsory activities that cannot be recovered).
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Evaluation criteria not defined

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The extraordinary call (resit/retake exam) consists of a single final test exam. Students who have not scored 50 points in the ordinary exam may take the "extraordinary exam" for the whole subject, which is worth 80 points. As in the previous call, the cumulative score of 50 points out of 100 is required to qualify for a pass. The calculation of the score will be made as follows: score of the "extraordinary examination" on ten x 80/100 + participation and practical points. The participation points and practical activities referred to in the above formula correspond to those obtained by the student in the ordinary call (final exam).
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Only students who meet the requirements set out in the UCLM Student Assessment Regulations will be admitted to this competition and will be assessed in accordance with the criteria applied in the extraordinary competition.
