8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Fieldwork assessment 20.00% 20.00% Final project
Laboratory sessions 40.00% 20.00% Laboratory practices and its reports
Test 40.00% 40.00% Evaluation test
Other methods of assessment 0.00% 20.00% Theorical-practical laboratory exam (only for non-continuous evaluation students)
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 4 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. 12.2) 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 order to pass the course, it is necessary to obtain a minimum grade of 4.0 points in each of the compulsory activities (assessment tests and laboratory practices), and obtain a minimum of 5.0 in the final assessment of the course.
    The reports of suspended practices may be re-delivered in the extraordinary call.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The practical reports may be delivered up to the date of the ordinary call. Students who change from continuous to non-continuous assessment will maintain the grade of the mandatory assessable activities presented.
    The evaluation of the competences acquired in the development of laboratory practices will be evaluated by means of a theoretical-practical exam.
    In the field work your memory will be evaluated, but not the presentation in class.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Suspended practical reports or final project may be recovered with a new delivery on the date of the extraordinary call.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The evaluation will be 60% evaluation test (theoretical exam) and 40% theoretical-practical laboratory exam.
