Assessment comments


In order to pass this course, a minimum of 5 out of 10 in the final mark is required. A score of 4 out of 10 is the minimum required in each of the parts of the course (workshop/supervised projects and oral presentation/final mixed test).

Deadlines for assignments are strict. Late arrivals will be penalised, unless they are duly justified.

Pieces of work including plagiarized 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.  

Very active participation in the different activities, as well as all the extra-credit material carried out by the students during the course, could be awarded up to an extra 5% of the final mark. This can include voluntary work, alternative readings or any other activity proposed and accepted by students and teachers.

The students who do not attend the official exam will be given a grade of NP
(absent) if they have not handed in more than 50% of the continuous assessement

The dates for the supervised projects, oral presentation and mixed objective tests will be announced well ahead of time.

July opportunity: Those students with less than a 4 in each of the parts evaluated in the course (even if the average is superior to 5) will have to sit for the "second opportunity exam session" in July, where students can retake those parts they have failed, according to the following distribution of percentages: Supervised written project defended with an oral presentation (30%), submission of written tasks similar to those evaluated during the course (20%), mixed test about the contents of the course (50%).

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

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.
