8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Progress Tests 60.00% 60.00% Written test of each of the blocks of the subject
Laboratory sessions 40.00% 40.00% Both the reports delivered and the presentation and oral defense of them will be taken into account.
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:
    Two tests will be established during the semester, the last one coinciding with the examination date set by the Studies Sub-direction. The weightings indicated in the section on 'assessments' will be applied. It is necessary to obtain a mark equal to or higher than 4 points in all the compulsory tests taken in order to be able to average out the rest of the assessment activities. The average of all the assessment activities must be equal or higher than 5 points to consider the subject as passed.

    The student who passes the laboratory (more than 5 points) will have his grade maintained during the following course, unless he voluntarily decides to repeat it. In case of not passing the subject in the following course, the student will have to do the laboratory practices again.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    By default, all students take continuous assessment. If a student cannot or does not want to take the continuous assessment, he/she must inform the lecturer in order to change to non-continuous assessment. This change must be made as soon as possible and never after having taken 50% or more of the continuous assessment tests, at which point this change can no longer be made. Likewise, this change cannot be made after the end of the class period.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The student may make up the written tests by means of an exam on the date set by the Studies Sub-direction. The resolution of the laboratory practices will be recoverable with a specific recovery
procedure after the closing of the ordinary call. The same weights and requirements will be applied as in the ordinary call.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
If the student has passed the laboratory during the previous course, the rest of the training activities will be evaluated by means of an exam on the date set by the subdirectorate of studies. The weighting will be 40% laboratory and 60% written test. If the student has not passed the laboratory part , the specific procedure of recovery will be indicated, being the weighting of 40 % laboratory and 60%
written test.
