8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 0.00% 67.00% It will be a single final test. A minimum of 4 points out of 10 will be necessary to obtain an average with the rest of the evaluable activities.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 18.00% 18.00% In continuous assessment, this activity will be carried out throughout the course and will consist of solving cases of practical and expository content related to the subject. In non-continuous assessment, the student must take a specific test that evaluates the same competences acquired in the completion of these case studies.
Laboratory sessions 15.00% 15.00% In continuous assessment, this activity will be carried out throughout the course and will consist of attendance at the practicals, submission of the report and resolution of practical questions. In non-continuous assessment or if the student has not passed the laboratory practicals during the course, he/she must take a test to assess similar competences both in the ordinary and extraordinary exams, and must obtain a minimum of 4 points out of 10 to average with the rest of the assessable activities.
Mid-term tests 67.00% 0.00% There will be a partial test of the subject in the middle of the course and another one in the ordinary exam with the rest of the syllabus of the subject. Each part will have the same weight and may include theory and problems. The minimum mark in each test will be 4 points out of 10 in order to average with the rest of the evaluable activities.
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:
    Students who have passed the practical exercises, case studies and the first partial exam will take a second partial exam with questions related to the remaining subjects of the course. If the student has not passed the first partial exam, he/she will have to take two exams, one of the first part of the subject and the other of the second part of the subject. It is necessary to obtain a minimum of 4 points out of 10 in each of the tests in order to obtain an average with the rest of the evaluable activities.
    If the student has not passed the laboratory practicals during the course, he/she must take a test to evaluate similar competences, and must obtain a minimum of 4 points out of 10 in order to obtain an average with the rest of the evaluable activities.
    If the student has not carried out the practical cases during the course, he/she must take an assessment of this part that evaluates the same competences acquired in the practical cases.
    The course will only be considered passed if the student has obtained at least 5 out of 10 in all the assessment tests.
    If the student has not passed the laboratory practicals during the course, he/she must take a test to evaluate similar competences both in the ordinary and extraordinary exams, and must pass it in order to pass the subject (4 points out of 10). The weight of this block in the final grade is 15% of the overall grade for the course.
    If the student has not completed the problems proposed during the course, he/she must take an assessment of this part that evaluates the same competences acquired in the completion of these practical cases and that will have a weight of 18% in the overall grade of the course.
    The course will only be considered passed if the student has obtained at least a 5 out of 10 in all the evaluation tests.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The student must take a final test that will include content from the entire syllabus of the course, which will have a weight of 67% in the overall grade of the course. Students must obtain at least a 4 out of 10 in order to obtain an average with the rest of the evaluable activities of the subject.
    The student must take a specific theoretical-practical test to evaluate the competences acquired after the internship, which will have a weight of 15% in the overall grade of the subject. Students must obtain a minimum of 4 out of 10 in order to obtain an average with the rest of the evaluable activities of the subject.
    The student must take a specific test to evaluate the same competences acquired in the practical cases, which will have a weight of 18% in the overall grade of the course.
    The subject will only be considered passed if the student has obtained at least 5 out of 10 in all the evaluation tests.
    If the student has not carried out the problems proposed during the course, he/she must take an assessment of this part that evaluates the same competences acquired in the practical cases and that will have a weight of 18% in the overall grade of the course.
    The subject will only be considered passed if the student has obtained at least 5 out of 10 in all the evaluation tests.
    If the student has not carried out the problems proposed during the course, he/she must take an assessment of this part that evaluates the same competences acquired in the practical cases and that will have a weight of 18% in the overall grade of the course.
    The course will only be considered passed if the student has obtained at least a 5 out of 10 in all the evaluation tests.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Students who have pending any of the partial exams will take a single test in the extraordinary call with questions related to the entire syllabus of the subject that will have a weight of 67% of the overall subject. It is necessary to obtain a minimum of 4 points out of 10 in this test in order to obtain an average with the rest of the evaluable activities.
If the student has not passed the laboratory practicals in the ordinary exam, he/she must also take a test to evaluate similar competences, and must obtain a minimum of 4 points out of 10 in order to obtain an average with the rest of the evaluable activities. The weight of this block in the final grade is 15% of the overall grade for the course.
If the student has not completed the practical cases in the ordinary exam, he/she must also take an assessment of this part that evaluates the same competences acquired in the practical cases and that will have a weight of 18% in the overall grade of the course.
The subject will only be considered passed if the student has obtained a minimum of 5 out of 10 in all the assessment tests.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The evaluation criteria are the same as in the extraordinary call.
