Students will be evaluated throughout the course with no more than four activities as well as by means of a final exam. In order to pass this course, students must have at least a score of 4 out of 10 in the exam. They must have also handed in and passed half the required activities.
Deadlines for assignments are
strict. Late arrivals will be penalised (25% of the mark), unless they are duly justified.
Pieces of work including plagiarised material will be marked with 0. To detect plagiarism, the application Turnitin could be used. This application recognises papers previously turned in by other people (or the student him/herself) at this university or other universities.
There will be apenalisation as well if the student does not show a good command of English, the one required according to the Memoria de Verificación.
The students who do not attend the official exam in January or July will be given a grade of NP (absent) if they have not handed in more than 50% of the continuous assessement activities.
Students sitting the December exam (final exam brought forward) will be assessed according to the criteria specified for the July opportunity.
Students who do not pass in January will have another opportunity in July in which both the final exam (50%) and an activity (50%) will be taken into account. Students who have previously passed the activities for continuous evaluation will not have to hand it in again.
Part-time students who have been granted officially "dispensa académica" (exemption) as stated in the University regulations will be evaluated in either of the opportunities according to the criteria established for the second opportunity (July). Part-time students with "dispensa
académica" must contact the teacher at the beginning of the first semester (firstname.lastname@example.org).
