2. Pre-Requisites

Students are expected to have some knowledge on programming, computer structures, software engineering, etc.; knowledge that are supposed to be acquired in the previous two years of the degree.

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

This subject is part of the global subject SOFTWARE ENGINEERING, INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS in the degree program and it is the basis for the subject:

  • Human-Computer Interaction II

The user interface is the visible part of the applications. In the discipline of human-computer interaction, designing a proper user interface is understood as a must. The user should perform the tasks easily. Obviously, the interface must be aesthetically pleasant, but always having in mind that the main objective is to ease the user interaction with the application. Within this subject, students will develop applications considering fundamentals regarding the person, the mechanisms of interaction or some design rules.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 10.00% 10.00% (INF) 10%
Laboratory sessions 35.00% 35.00% (LAB) 25%
Theoretical exam 35.00% 35.00% (ESC) 35%
Projects 20.00% 20.00% (PRES) 20%
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:
    To pass the subject, it is required a minimum mark of 40% in every part (Class activities, Lab, Theory Exam). If the student do not pass such parts with the minimun mark will get a global mark of 4.00 as much.
    Depending on the quality of the work made by the student during the course, teachers might rise the mark up to 1 extra point in the subject.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The assessment criteria are the same as in the continuous assessment. An appoinment will be stablished to assess the different parts.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The assessment criteria are the same as in the regular exam session with the following considerations:
The students will only need to retake those parts with a Failure Mark. Those parts already passed by the student will not need to be repeated and will be kept during the current academic course.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same criteria as the previous one (extra exam session)

General comments about the planning: This course schedule is APPROXIMATE. It could vary throughout the academic course due to teaching needs, bank holidays, etc. A weekly schedule will be properly detailed and updated on the online platform (Virtual Campus). Note that all the lectures, practice sessions, exams and related activities performed in the bilingual groups will be entirely taught and assessed in English. Classes will be scheduled in 3 sessions of one hour and a half per week. Evaluation activities or catch-up classes may exceptionally be scheduled in the afternoon (morning).
