Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Projects 40.00% 40.00% The execution of a practical case that will be carried out in groups will be evaluated
Final test 60.00% 60.00%
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:
    The student must participate in a mandatory way in the work execution seminars.
    The student, to be able to pass, must pass all parts of the assessment system with a grade equal to or greater than 4.0.
    Students who do not participate in the seminars of preparation of the work must present the day of the final test, a working memory whose subject must be previously agreed with the teacher of the subject.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Evaluation criteria not defined

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The same criteria as ordinary exam
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
