Qualificació

Evaluation:

- 20% : Individual midterm exam covering part of the course (25 multiple choice questions). Wrong answers will be penalized (-0.25).


- 20% : Oral communication of a scientific paper in working groups. Assessment: 0 (unacceptable), 1 (acceptable) or 2 (Very good).


- 60% : Individual final exam covering the entirety of the course (50 multiple choice questions + 2 short questions).Wrong answers will be penalized (-0.25).


The grade resulting from all assignments will be finally added to the final exam grade (only if the final exam gets a minimum of 4/10 points).


The final grade to pass the subject has to be at least 5.

There will be a basic-competences exam for those students that have participated in the required learning and assessment activities and been given a “fail” grade. The highest possible grade that a student can achieve in the basic-competences exam is 5. In any case, the grades from the midterm exam and the oral communication will be added to the final grade obtained in the basic-competences exam.



IMPORTANT: Grades from the assessment activities from the previous course will not be kept during this course.

Criteris específics de la nota «No Presentat» :

Students are required to participate in the assessment activities during the course (oral communication and midterm exam) as well as to present for final examination (and basic-competences exam, if required). On the contrary, will be considered as non-attendance.
