8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Laboratory sessions 15.00% 15.00% Carrying out of practices in the laboratory and delivery of reports related to the knowledge acquired in them
Progress Tests 30.00% 0.00% Continuous assessment through monitoring the acquisition of theoretical knowledge and resolution of practical cases in the classroom that demonstrate the acquisition of the corresponding skills
Final test 55.00% 85.00% Written evaluation test that will consist of solving theoretical, theoretical-practical questions and practical cases related to the contents of the subject.
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 course, it is essential to carry out the laboratory practices and obtain through reports delivery at least a grade of 5 out of 10.
    Those students who do not pass the laboratory practices through the delivery of reports must take a specific written test.
    The final grade for the course will be obtained by applying the assessment percentages indicated above in the continuous assessment system.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    To pass the course, it is essential to carry out the laboratory practices and obtain through reports delivery at least a grade of 5 out of 10.
    Those students who do not pass the laboratory practices through the delivery of reports must take a specific written test.
    The final grade will be obtained by applying the assessment percentages specified above in the non-continuous assessment system.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The final mark of this call will be obtained by taking a final exam (85%) and the grade obtained from the laboratory practices (15%) will be taken into account.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same as in the extraordinary call
