Assessment comments

Students must get at least 1.6 out of 4 in the exam and 2.4 out of 6 points in continuous evaluation parts, and the average must be at least 5. Written essays must be handed in before the deadline set by the teacher, and always before the course is over. 

NO COPYING. Original essays: 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. 

For the July assessment students that have not done or passed any part earlier will have to take an exam (40% of the final mark) and do (written) exercises of textual analysis plus the project (60% in all of the final mark). Those students that have already done acceptable exercises and essays will not have to write new ones. 

Those students that fail or do not complete the first-chance (January) or second-chance (July) assessment will appear as Non Presentado only if they carried out or handed in less than 50% of the continuous assessment activities during the course (including both theory and practice classes). As established by the Vicerreitorado de Organización Académica e Titulacións, those students that fail in the first-chance assessment and do not take the second-chance tests will appear as "suspenso" .

DISPENSA ACADÉMICA: Those who are officially registered as part-time students, and have been granted permission not to attend classes, as stipulated in the regulations of this University, should contact the teacher at the beginning of the course. These students 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 broughtforward) will be assessed according to the criteria specified for the July opportunity.
