Methodologies Competencies Description Qualification
Laboratory practice A7 A16 A17 A19 A20 A21 A23 A24 B1 B2 B3 B4 B5 C1 C6 It will be evaluated the suitable realisation of the prelaboratory exercises, the skill in the realisation of the experimental work, the interpretation of the data obtained, as well as the correct realisation of the calculations, the answers to the questions of practices (that they will have to deliver) and the preparation of the notebook of laboratory.
Problem solving A7 A16 A20 B1 B2 B4 C1 The work carried out before and during the sessions as well as the actitude and degree of participation of the student in the classes. 10
Mixed objective/subjective test A4 A7 A20 A21 A24 B1 B2 C1 C6 Two written exams in each one of the two official announcements of January/July: one of them will consist on questions of theory and applied theory and the another one will consist on exercises focused to the resolution of problems.
Supervised projects A7 A16 A20 B1 B2 B4 C1 The adequate resolution of the proposed projects, the degree of participation of the student in the tutelage session, and the quality of explanation of each activity. 5
Short answer questions A4 A7 A21 B4 Exams to be realised through the Moodle platform about the topics of the subject by means of short answer questions. 10
Assessment comments
To pass the subject two basic requirements are needed:
1.- The realization of laboratory practice is mandatory to pass the subject.

2.-Reach a minimum qualification in the laboratory practice and in each mixed test. This minimum qualification will cannot be lower than 5 (over 10). Note that the subject will not be approved (even when the overall sum exceeds 5) if one of these particular scores do not reach 5. In this case, the subject is failed and the final qualification will be 4.5.

In the first and second opportunity, the students who carried out the laboratory practice but the obtained qualification was lower than 5, will have the opportunity to, in addition to the mixed test, perform a specific test related to the laboratory practice. The score of this test will replaced the grade obtained in practice for the overall rating.

Students who do not participate on the problem solving and supervised projects, and do not carry out the short answer questions will score 0 in these sections.

The student will obtain the qualification of No Presented when the student does not assist to the laboratory practice and neither attend to the mixed test.

In the context of "continuous evaluation" the "second opportunity" is a second opportunity of realisation of the mixed test and a specific test related to the laboratory practice. Therefore, the laboratory practice (except for students who did not get a minimum of 5), problem solving, supervised projects and short answer questions will keep the qualifications obtained along the course, whereas the qualification of the mixed test and a specific test related to the laboratory practice corresponding to second opportunity will substitute to those obtained in the first opportunity.

The students evaluated in the "second opportunity" only will be able to opt to Mark Honor if the maximum number of the Honors for the corresponding course has not covered in its whole in the "first opportunity".

For students with recognition of a part-time dedication, the evaluation will be carried out under the same criteria.

For students with academic exemption waiver assistance, conducting laboratory practices is mandatory and they will be provided within the flexibility to allow coordinating schedules and material and human resources. On the other hand, assistance to the greatest number of problem solving sessions will be provided; if students can not attend the problem solving sessions, they will make a mentored work. Therefore, these students will be evaluated by the qualifications obtained in laboratory practice (20%), in the mixed test (55%), in short answer questions (10%), in the activities of the problem solving sessions(10%)and supervised projects (5%). This will be applied to both opportunities.
