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:
In the compulsory activities, a minimum of 4 out of 10 must be obtained to consider the activity passed and to be able to pass the subject. The assessment of the activities will be global and, therefore, must be expressed with a single mark. If the activity consists of several sections, it may be evaluated individually, informing at the beginning of the course about the evaluation criteria for each section. For activities that can be retaken, there is an alternative activity in the extraordinary exam.
The mid-term tests will be common to all theory/laboratory groups of the subject and will be evaluated horizontally by the teachers of the subject, i.e. each part of the mid-term tests will be evaluated by the same teacher for all students.
The student passes the course if he/she obtains a minimum of 50 points out of 100 with the evaluations of each evaluation activity and passes all the compulsory activities.
The grade of the activities passed in any call, except for the partial tests, will be kept for the next academic year if the student requests it and the training activities and evaluation criteria of the subject are not modified in the next academic year. Also, the grade must be equal to or higher than 50%.
Failure to attend any of the theory tests (partial or final) and the laboratory activities will result in the grade of "Failure to attend". That is to say, the student will not obtain the grade of "Failure to attend" if he/she takes any of the theory exams or the laboratory activities. If the student has not passed any compulsory assessment activity, the final mark for the course cannot exceed 4 out of 10.
Students will only use the moodle forums for presenting their doubts or general questions. They will only write to the teachers' e-mail for individual questions.
Students who are unable to regularly attend face-to-face training activities may request, only at the beginning of the term, to take the non-continuous assessment mode. Similarly, if a student who is taking the continuous assessment mode incurs in any circumstance that prevents him/her from regularly attending the face-to-face training activities, he/she may apply for the non-continuous assessment mode. In this case, notification must be given before the date scheduled for the ordinary exams, in accordance with a deadline that will be established at the beginning of the semester.
Students who choose the non-continuous assessment mode will be graded globally, in 2 annual exams, one ordinary and one extraordinary, assessing 100% of the competences and through the evaluation systems indicated in the column "Non-continuous assessment".
If a change of model from continuous to "non-continuous" assessment is requested and the student has already taken an activity of the first assessment model, the mark obtained in that activity will not be saved for the "non-continuous" assessment.
Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The same criteria apply as in the ordinary exam, taking into account the following considerations:
Assessment tests will be held for all recoverable activities.
For students who do not pass the subject in the ordinary exam, the grade of the activities passed will be kept for the extraordinary exam. In the case of passed recoverable activities, the student may take the alternative assessment of these activities in the extraordinary exam and, in this case, the final mark for the activity will correspond to the last mark obtained. The student will not be able to apply for higher marks in the extraordinary call if the subject is passed in the ordinary call.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same characteristics as in the extraordinary call.
