8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Mid-term tests 60.00% 0.00% Performance of three partial tests. The first one on topic 1, the second one on topics 3 and 4 and the last one on topic 5.
Laboratory sessions 30.00% 30.00% Performance of laboratory practices corresponding to topics 3, 4 and 5.
Final test 0.00% 60.00% Final test structured in the same way as the partial tests taken by students with continuous assessment.
Projects 10.00% 10.00% Completion of a theoretical and practical work on the content of Topic 2.
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
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:
  • Continuous assessment:
    In the ordinary call, students will have three partial tests that will be eliminatory, i.e., if a partial is passed, this subject will not be examined in the final exam.
    In order to pass the course in the ordinary call, a minimum of 40% of the maximum grade must be obtained in each of the midterm exams and in the work, all of which are compulsory activities.
    If this requirement is not met, even if the overall grade of the course after the weighted average of all the evaluable parts is higher than 5 out of 10, the grade in the minutes will be Failed (4). In the case that the weighted average does not reach 4, the grade will be the one obtained from the weighted average of all the activities.
    The recovery of the partial tests will be possible in the final test, while the recovery of the work, will be possible by means of the realization of a new delivery that will only be realized when at least a 40% of maximum qualification of each one of the partial tests has been obtained previously.
    The practices will also have an evaluable character, although not obligatory nor recoverable (in case of not realizing them, the student renounces to that 30% of the qualification).
    It is strictly forbidden to use any type of electronic device (cell phone, tablets, smartwatches, etc), not even allowed to have them during the exam, even turned off.
    In case of non-compliance with this rule, the grade will be Fail (0), even if the terminal is turned off. This rule is applicable for all the exams and also for the partial exams.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    In the case of students who do not have continuous evaluation, the criteria will be the same as for continuous evaluation, except that the part of the evaluation corresponding to the partial tests will be examined in a single final exam that will be structured as three partial tests and that will be subject to the same criteria that have been established for the partial tests of the continuous evaluation.
    The practicals will also have an evaluable character, although they are neither obligatory nor recoverable (in case of not taking them, the student renounces to that 30% of the grade). The work is compulsory, evaluable and recoverable, facilitating the realization of the same to the students who do not have continuous evaluation on dates agreed between students and teacher.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
In the extraordinary call, the student will be able to examine those tests that have not been passed during the ordinary call. It will not be necessary to take the tests passed in the ordinary exam.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
In the special final exam, the student will be able to take a written exam for the course as a whole.
