2. Pre-Requisites

There are no prerequisites set, but it is recommended:

1.-Have completed the subjects of "Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry" and "Volumetric and Gravimetric Analysis" of the first semester of the 2nd year of the Degree in Chemistry.

2.- Know fundamental aspects of Statistics and the foundation of the linear least squares regression methodology.

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

The Instrumental Analysis course is part of the INSTRUMENTAL ANALYSIS subject, of 18 ECTS credits, compulsory in the Degree in Chemistry. It is taught in the second semester of the second year, while the others

two subjects belonging to this subject, Instrumental Analysis II and Instrumental Separation Methods, are impacted in the 1st and 2nd semester of the third year of the Degree, respectively.

The student has already taken the subjects of Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry and, Volumetric and Gravimetric Analysis, also in the second year, in which the foundations of Analytical Chemistry and Analytical Process are laid, providing

the basic competences and knowledge necessary to face this subject with guarantees of success.

In the second year, subjects in Physical Chemistry are also studied, reinforcing, among others, the concepts of spectroscopy and quantum chemistry, which are so necessary in instrumental analysis.

In the study plan, this subject, together with the other two of the same subject, Instrumental Analysis II and Instrumental Separation Methods, find their continuity with the fourth year Advanced Analytical Chemistry elective.

In this subject the foundation, instrumentation and applications of the main spectroscopic and non-spectroscopic optical methods are studied. It is the first contact that the student has with the instrumental analysis techniques,

pursuing the student to study the different analytical methodologies, with their own and common characteristics. It is intended that the student develop the necessary skills to be able to solve character problems

analytical, that graduates may consider in their professional career.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Laboratory sessions 15.00% 15.00%
Assessment of active participation 15.00% 0.00%
Mid-term tests 35.00% 0.00%
Final test 35.00% 85.00%
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:
    Class attendance is recommended, although it is not required.
    A. The final written exam will be scored between 0 and 10 points and its weight in the final evaluation will be 70%. If a student has passed the mid-term test with a exam score greater than 4, only the contents not included in the mid-term test will be examinated.
    B. The practices are obligatory and these will be evaluated according to: attendance and punctuality, attitude and use in the laboratory and interest, quantitative results and presentation of the memory of practices. The qualification between 0 and 10 has a weight in the final evaluation of 15%.
    C. Questions in class, participation in problem seminars, etc ... Their weight in the final evaluation will be 15%. The final grade for the ordinary call will therefore be: Grade = 0.7 * A + 0.15 * B + 0.15 * C
    In order to apply the assessment percentages indicated in the assessment system, it is necessary to obtain at least a 4 in the final test and in the laboratory practices. If the above requirements are not met, the final score will be suspended and the numerical value will be the one obtained in the final test or in case of passing this but not the laboratory practices, the numerical value of 4.
    Finally, it is necessary to obtein a final score of 5.0 in the sum 0.7 * A + 0.15 * B + 0.15 * C to approve the subjet.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Final test (85%) and Practices (15%). In order to apply the indicated percentages, it is necessary to obtain a score higher than 4 out of 10 both in the written exam and in the laboratory practicals.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
There will be a single written exam of the entire subject (85%). Laboratory practices 15%, either in the realization of them or in the test enabled to pass them. In order to apply the indicated percentages, it is necessary to obtain a score higher than 4 out of 10 both in the written exam and in the laboratory practicals.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
There will be a written exam that will be graded with the same criteria of the extraordinary call.
