Assessment comments
-To pass this course, you must be graded with at least 5 (out of 10) IN EACH OF THE SUPERVISED PROJECTS, the SHORT RESPONSE TESTS and the EXAMINATIONS, and at least 5 (out of 10) in the FINAL GRADE.

-For the JULY opportunity assessment, there will be supervised projects, short answer tests and mandatory exams as in June (the optional video-project will have THE SAME REQUIREMENTS too). On this occasion, each student must complete the section(s) that she or he did not pass in the first opportunity.

-Students sitting the December exam (final exam brought forward) will be assessed according to the criteria specified for the July opportunity.

-Students officially enrolled part-time who have been granted an official dispensation from attending classes will need to contact the teachers at the beginning of the semester. These students will be assessed according to the criteria applied in the July opportunity.

-In order NOT to obtain the grade of "No presentado" (Absent), the student must attend the exam (even if it is just to write her or his name) OR do at least half of the scoring work.

-Students can only do ONE volunteer activity to raise their final grade +0.5. That is, you can EITHER participate in a talent show (speaking in English) OR write an essay on one (or both) mandatory readings. More information will be given in class and via Moodle. Obviously, the extra percentage will be added to the final grade as long as it is equal to or higher than 5. IMPORTANT: to be able to do volunteer work it is NECESSARY to contact the coordinator at the beginning of the course and strictly follow the guidelines set by her.

-All assignments must be submitted in time and in the specified format in order to avoid a penalty of 25% on the grade obtained.

-Teachers can use the "Turnitin" plagiarism detection service to review student work. Plagiarism in any activity will mean obtaining a "zero" in it.

-If the coordinator considers it appropriate, there may be topics of self-study by the students (e.g. to increase your knowledge). These materials, which will not be subject to evaluation, will be provided on Moodle.
