Assessment comments

Deadlines for handing in the supervised projects will
be given.  You must hand in all tasks required for marks to be added
to the rest of the marks. Work handed in late, without adequate justification,
will be penalized.

You will be required to sign in at every session
(whole group, interactive and tutorial groups). Regular attendance is an
indication of your interest in the subject, apart from being necessary for

Mixed objective/subjective test: (exam on written
exercises) the date is fixed by the Faculty with the first opportunity at the
end of the semester. This date is NOT negotiable. Students should, therefore,
make sure they are present, especially if they travel during the Christmas
holidays.This applies to all students, both local UDC ones and visiting Erasmus

The second opportunity, in July, according to the dates
approved by the Faculty, will consist of repeating the part(s) of the
assessment not already passed, maintaining the same percentages. If the
"supervised projects" (assignments) part is failed, students must present new pieces of work. Details will
be posted on Moodle, with deadlines during the second semester and
before the exam period begins. 

 The July opportunity is not intended as a way of
improving marks in sections already passed; it is only for resitting the parts
which a student has failed.

A minimum mark of 5 out of 10 is necessary in each
part of the assessment in order to pass this subject.

Students will obtain a "no presentado"
(absent from assessment) if they do not attend the exams and if they do not
hand in any work.

Students who are officially registered as part time,
and have been granted permission not to attend classes, as stipulated in the
regulations of this University, will be assessed in either of the opportunities
according to the same criteria specified for the second opportunity.

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

If you fail the first opportunity and do not attend
the second opportunity, your mark will be suspenso (fail).
