2. Pre-Requisites

It is necessary to know the contents related to the identification of components of a basic electrical circuit, basic experimental measurement techniques and the identification of the main audio and video components present in consumer electronic equipment.

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

In this subject, students will acquire knowledge about the origin of bioelectric signals and the methods of measurement and registration of them. The different equipment present in a health center will be described and the role that technicians specialized in electromedicine play in the acquisition of non-implantable active medical devices, their implementation and the preventive and corrective maintenance of them.
This specialty of engineering is called to be one of the main economic growth engines in the coming years, with a high presence of techniques associated with audiovisual systems that are the subject of study in this curriculum.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Test 40.00% 40.00% Partial tests performed at the end of each thematic block
Laboratory sessions 60.00% 60.00% Realization of practical cases in group
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:
    The weightings indicated in the section on 'assessments' will be applied. Progress tests' and laboratory The weightings indicated in the 'assessments' section will be applied. The 'progress tests' and the practicals can be recovered by means of an exam on the date set by the center's management. Students who pass the laboratory will keep the grade for the following year, unless they voluntarily decide to repeat it. If the student does not pass the course in the following year, he/she will have to retake the laboratory practicals.

    In order to pass the course, students will have to satisfy the following three conditions:
    - All the laboratory practices will have to be handed in. No individual minimum grade is required for each one of them, but the average of all of them will have to exceed a grade of 4 points (out of 10).
    - In the written theory tests a score higher than 4 points (out of 10) will be required.
    - The final average grade of the course must be equal or higher than 5 points (out of 10).
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The student who cannot or does not want to take the continuous evaluation must communicate it to the professor of the subject to change to non-continuous evaluation. This change must be made as soon as possible and never having completed 50% or more of the continuous evaluation tests, at which time this change can no longer be made. The weightings indicated in the 'assessments' section will be applied.
    In order to pass the course, students will have to satisfy the following three conditions:
    - All the laboratory practicals set out will have to be handed in. No individual minimum grade is required for each of them, but the average of all of them will have to exceed a grade of 4 points (out of 10).
    - In the written theory tests a score higher than 4 points (out of 10) will be required.
    - The final average grade of the course must be equal or higher than 5 points (out of 10).

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
In this second opportunity to pass the course, 100% of the semester score could be achieved. Thus, two assessment activities will be conducted, i.e.:
- A single final written exam covering all theory concepts. This examination will be awarded with 40% of the semester score and a minimum score of 4 points (over 10) will be required to pass the course.
- New submission and oral defense of the technical informs for all or some hands-on experiments proposed along the course. These activities will be re-worked in a special timetable agreed with the instructor. In global terms, these activities will be awarded with 60% of the semester score and minimum mark of 4 points (over 10) will be required to pass the course.

Finally, to pass the course a final weighted score of 5 points (over 10) is required. In case of failing the course, global score for theory or laboratory (if it is higher than 4 points) will be maintained for the next offering, unless the student voluntarily decides to retake the corresponding set of assessment activities.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
If students passed laboratory or theory activities in the preceding course, only an exam covering hands-on experiments or theory concepts will have to be tackled. Otherwise, students will have to take two exams, one covering theory concepts and another assessing laboratory skills. The grading scheme will award 40% of the final mark on the course for theory exam and 40% for laboratory test. For both examinations, a minimum mark of 4 points (over 10) will be required to pass the course. Moreover, the final weighted average mark will have to be equal or higher than 5 points (over 10).
