Methodologies Competencies Description Qualification
Laboratory practice B5 C1

• Attendance at lab is compulsory. To get a final qualification students must make 3 or 4 practices (it will depend on the covid-19 situation).

• They will be not admitted lack of assistance without justification

• Qualifiaciton of practices represents 10% of the total.
Mixed objective/subjective test A2 B1 B3 B6

• There will be a Objetive test that will be held during the four-month period. This exam includes the chapters of introduction to Physics, estatics and kinematics

• The contribution of this objetive test is 30%.

The test will be in 3 parts: theory (T = 40 % of the score), problems solving (30 % of the score) and homeworks (30% of the score).

• The total qualification is given by:

NOTA (E1)=0.4T+0.3P+0.3E

• If a lack of attendance before the exam
NOTA(E1) = 0.4T+0.3P+0.3E - 0.4
Mixed objective/subjective test A2 B1 B3 B6

• The final Objective test will include the second part of the course: dynamics of particles, dynamics of rigid solid, fluids and waves.

• The score of this exam is 50%.

• The score distribution is equaul to the previous one.

• The exam date will coincides with the final exame date to be approved in the Xunta de Centro.

• In July, students will only have to examine suspended parts.
Guest lecture / keynote speech A2 B6 C5 - Attendance at court sessions is mandatory. The self-assessment tests available in Moodle will be counted for evaluation purposes. One attempt is required in each topic to achieve the maximum score.

- Due to the non-presential nature, students with Academic Dispensation are also required to take the self-assessment tests for each topic.
Problem solving B1 B3 B5 C1

- Attendance at problem-solving classes is mandatory. A maximum of 5 unexcused absences will be allowed during the course.

• In total, there will be 65 problems (30+35). A minimum limit is required to score, 80 % of right solutions. Score will start in 5 (80% of right solutions) to 10 (100% right).

The solved exercices will only be admited at the demanded dates.

• Attendance at tutorial hours is compulsory (4 tutorials per exam, 8 in total). Other the score would be penalised.
Mixed objective/subjective test A2 B1 B3 B6

During the second opportunity exam, students are only going to be tested about the parts which will be pointed out by the professors.

(+) The percentage of this test on the final score depends on the part that has to be examined.

The scores of assistance, lab and homeworks will be preserved in the final mark.
Assessment comments

Final qualification is given by the equation: Mark = 0.1* Practices + 0.1*Asistence + 0.3*E1 + 0.5*E2

Final qualification for students with academic exemption: Mark = 0.1* Practices  + 0.3375*E1 + 0.5625*E2


Practices is the score of lab practices
Asistence is the ratio number of attendance/ total
E1 is the score of the first Objective test

E2 is the score of the first Objective test

Criteria for the
evaluation of objective tests and problem solving

Rubric will be used to
evaluate the competency Understanding and mastery of the
fundamentals about statics, kinematics, dynamics and waves and their
applications to engineering problems.
The following
sub-competencies shall be taken into account:

  • The student has
    knowledge about general laws

  • The student analyzes
    problems, identifies magnitudes and their relative importance.

  • The student uses the
    appropriate tools to analyse and to calculate.

  • The student is
    capable of analyzing the coherence of the results.

  • The student gets
    error-free numerical results.

  • The student expresses
    the result with the appropriate units.

The criteria for the second oportunity  (exam in June/July) are the same as in the other objective tests.
