8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Mid-term tests 70.00% 0.00% Two tests related with the application of theoretical-practical aspects. Each test must be passed at least 4 out of 10.
Final test 0.00% 70.00% It will consist of a test that encompasses all the topics of the subject (final exam).
Projects 15.00% 15.00% The reports of seminars, problems and / or papers presented as well as the attitude shown by the student will be evaluated.
Assessment of activities done in the computer labs 15.00% 15.00% Use software (MDSolids) to check the analytical results of the problems. The results obtained and the cleaning and presentation of the document will be taken into account. The content is on flexure.
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:
    CONSIDERATIONS IN CASE OF COPYING: Those students who submit the practice and problem assignments (that is, whose percentage of resemblance to other student(s), from their course or from previous ones, is greater than 80%), will be evaluated with a zero in this activity.
    The subject will be passed with a score equal to or greater than 5.
    Those students who have not passed any of the partial exams, will maintain the score of the exams passed for the final ordinary and extraordinary exams, having to be examined only for the partial tests not passed.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The subject will be passed with a score equal to or greater than 5.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The subject will be passed with a score equal to or greater than 5.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The subject will be passed with a score equal to or greater than 5.
